Private Tuition in Self Defence

Private Tuition in Self Defence

We provide private tuition in self defence. These are not martial arts lessons (although we also provide this service) where the goal is to master an art…….these are no-nonsense techniques that are designed to be used in real situations, not in a dojo or competition. Tuition is from experienced self defence instructors who have constructed a course of lessons that enable the client to gain confidence and ability in a shorter time frame and have an awareness of increased personal safety.

Taiji touchstones

If mind and internal energy can be freely exchanged, then there is much satisfaction in performing smoothly and dynamically; this is called exchanging negative and positive. (Master Wu Yu-hsiang).
