Our self defence courses are designed for adults and teenagers, and will introduce the concepts and skills necessary for self defence in a safe and enjoyable training environment. The best form of self defence is to not be in a situation where you may be vulnerable or at risk. Whilst an obvious statement, it is not that practical in the real world. In the event that we have been unable to avoid a potentially risky situation, and we find ourselves in immediate danger, we may need to employ a physical response. Anything you do should be simple and effective.

In Savate Assaut, the objective is to make contact with ones opponent, using a variety of kicks and punches, ideally without the opponent scoring against you. Assaut bouts are judged on demonstrating superior technical skills and ability, including scoring points by making contact.
