Recently, when out shopping, one of our members, Ryan, found himself at the scene of a robbery. Thankfully, he was not the victim.

His training at KB Self Defence and subsequent quick-thinking, meant that he was in a position to swiftly assist the woman who had sadly been subjected to the theft.

Ryan sent an email about the unfortunate situation to KB Self Defence Chief Instructor, Kelly Bunyan:

'I was really pleased that a lot of your teachings came to me in that moment, and I was able to explain the circumstances to the police, make sure she was okay and console her that it was only a phone that she lost and the fact that she came out of it unharmed was the priority.   

After a year of lockdown, it's a reminder of the reality of living in London, and that after being inside for so long a lot of us have lost our sense of awareness in public spaces. It's unfortunate that there will always be people who take advantage of this, which makes us being prepared even more important now that life is slowly getting back to normal.'

Ryan repeats Kelly's teachings above, when writing that belongings are replaceable, but your life and the life of your loved ones is priceless. 

Unfortunately, it is a fact that predators are looking for easy prey.  We teach at KB Self Defence that it is important to be alert and aware of your surroundings. Blocking out the environment around you by listening to music through headphones is dangerous. The person who is present, showing confidence (walking tall) is less likely to be a target.

You can learn much more about this and how to fight back, should the worst happen, at our KB Self Defence classes. Every one of our members will tell you that the classes are invaluable for boosting confidence and equipping you with the tools required to stand a fighting chance. Naturally, we hope that you would never have to use the techniques we teach. 

The classes are currently online, so you can practise from the comfort of your home on your own, or with others for one fee. Get in touch to book today: 




After such a long time, we were ecstatic to be able to return to sparring this week in our London martial arts school! WHAT A TREAT to be able to make contact again. COVID restrictions deprived us of one of the best aspects of our training experience and now we're delighted to be reunited with it! It will be an event to remember.




You wouldn't think that punching and kicking your team members would help you bond with them would you?! It sounds too ominous.




Martial arts training changes your life on a spiritual level. It makes you more disciplined for sure, but humility comes from our hearts humility that inspires loyalty and passion for nurturing the next generation.



Our members say in this video, “KB has made me … fitter, healthier, energised, stronger, happier, flexible, thinking positive …” There are so many more benefits offered by our Kickboxing, Kung Fu and Self Defence classes. Lisa even says our school has made her believe in herself. Considering our members are reaping all these rewards, would you like to benefit from our martial arts classes too?
