2 Day Self-Defence Seminar

We are proud to announce that our next “highly acclaimed” two-day self-defence weekend seminar is Saturday & Sunday, Sept 28th & 29th, 2019. The course is suitable for all levels of fitness. No experience necessary. It is reality based self-defence training that teaches you the difference between self-protection and self-defence.

We don’t train for sport or competition, what we teach are simple techniques that have been completely pressure-tested to work for everyone in today’s world. The Hard Target System brings together many different systems, such as Krav Maga, Kick boxing, Real Combat, grappling and ground-fighting- but our primary objective is to teach REAL self-defence.

Open To All Ages & Fitness Levels

The course is open to everyone: young*, old, fit, unfit, male and female. No experience is necessary. Just bring a notepad, pen, towel and water. Lunch is supplied and all who attend will receive a certificate upon successful completion from Chief Instructor Aidan Carroll.
