JOIN KB SELF DEFENCE

Are you fearful of being alone and attacked?

Living in London or any town in the UK can be dangerous, regardless of whether you are a teenager or adult. Reports of assaults and general crime are on the rise, 24-7 news just adds and heightens our inner fears.

Would you like the skills and confidence to be able to protect yourself?

Self-defence has never been more important than it is in current times. We help adults and children become confident, and equip you with the essential skills.

But I am not a violent person

Physical combat may not come naturally to a lot of people, but self-defence is more about a state of mind than body strength. You don't have to be an aggressive person, but it is important to be aware of your surroundings, think ahead and avoid hazardous situations.

The Chief Instructor at KB Fitness, Kelly Bunyan, has always said that, "it is better to know something rather than nothing. It isn't about being fearful, it's just about being sensible and safe."

We hope that you have enough information on this page to give most of the answers people ask us about our Self Defence classes and course, but feel free to give us a call on 07881 957977 | 020 7681 0114 or email info@kbfitness.co.uk, we will be happy to help.

Introduction to self defence and our team

Simply, our courses will help you overcome your fear, gain confidence, self-belief, and learn the skills needed to better protect yourself.

Are you interested in challenging self-defeating beliefs, and learning what you are truly capable of?

Our female instructors are experts in the martial arts. Kelly Bunyan, KB Fitness Chief Instructor and ex-Met Police Officer, and Officer Safety Instructor, Dee Terret, have harnessed their combined 70+ years of experience to create a proven training system.

Self Defence will give you the knowledge you need to be in a better position to fight back, should the worst happen. Our mission is to give you the confidence you need to be less fearful than you are now in all situations. For example, we intend to help you feel safer when walking home at night - this confidence alone will swiftly make you less of a target.

What is covered in the 6-week course and our self defence classes?

 

  • Mental awareness and attitude
  • Blocks.
  • How to stand (stances).
  • Strikes - legs and arms.
  • Grip & strangle releases.
  • Joint manipulation and pressure points.
  • Using body weight to your advantage.
  • Floor and wall work.

The classes last for 1 hour. They cover personal safety awareness in your daily life as well as focusing on easy to remember and effective physical self-defence techniques.

The classes are not violent nor aggressive and cater to everybody. All levels of fitness are welcome; please do not hesitate if you are unfit or a complete beginner.

Physical combat may not come naturally to a lot of people, but self-defence is more about a state of mind than body strength. You don't have to be an aggressive person, but it is important to be aware of your surroundings, think ahead and avoid hazardous situations.

The class will offer many practical techniques that may work in any number of different situations; whether it be an unwanted grope on the tube or something more serious.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY...

“I finished the 6 week online self-defence system at the end of last week and really got so much out of it – thanks to you and Dee for putting the time and effort in to make the videos! I learned more from the online videos than from the live classes, not because of anything to do with teaching methods in class (all the KB instructors are awesome teachers), but because anxiety is not the optimum mental state for learning. So being at home and relaxed in my own environment I could absorb more than in the live classes that can often be stressful for me. I’d highly recommend the online self defence course to anyone who might be feeling nervous about taking live classes but wants to learn self-defence, so they can practise at home in a familiar environment and pause the videos if they need to, or start feeling stressed or triggered.”

KB Self Defence does not intend to lull you into a false sense of security. Kelly, KB Chief Instructor clarifies:

"Learning self-defence does not guarantee your safety. Nobody is definitely able to defend themselves, even we do not know that we are always safe. However, we believe it is better to know something rather than nothing, to increase your chance of being able to defend yourselves. Don't delay, sign up."

Physical intervention is a last resort to be used when you have no other option but to defend yourself. Practising the moves regularly over time is essential to try to ensure they become second nature and will render them far more effective in any real situation. So, once you finish your class, keep on performing these techniques on your own as part of your regular, ongoing exercise regime.
