Welcome to Women's Self Defence UK
According to statistical data, every 1 in 5 women will be assaulted during their life. What is more, a huge chunk of victims do not report the crimes and from personal experience as well as group studies, it is evident that most cases never go on record.
Do you want to gain confidence?
Are you looking to learn what skills you can apply to effectively deal with conflicts?
Do you want to learn how to defend yourself?
Have you always wanted to try martial arts but never quite knew where to start, or which martial art to choose?
If your answer is yet, then you came to the right place!
Joanna, the founder of Women's Self Defense UK is here to offer you an opportunity to check all the above boxes. A professional martial arts black belt, former World and European champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, former national kick-boxing champion, full time coach and personal trainer with 19 years of experience.
Women's Self Defense UK is a professional service for females who seek to learn how to defend themselves and acquire the necessary skills to stay safe in the streets of London.
A large chunk of this self-defence program is based on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) techniques. BJJ is a martial art in which a smaller opponent can have a technical advantage over a bigger adversary by utilising leverage, take downs and choke holds. Jiu Jitsu is also one of very few martial arts that addresses the issue of defence when the fight goes to the ground. When faced with a threat, a physically smaller person is at a strength disadvantage, therefore psychology and smart choices must be employed when defending oneself.
A great deal of training focuses on awareness, prevention and de-escalation of conflicts - which are the cornerstone of self-defence.
WHY TO CHOSE THIS SELF - DEFENCE SYSTEM?
This program was designed with vulnerable members of public in mind. It is simple yet effective. What helped create this course was years of practical experience, as well as theoretical knowledge and study of law and psychology of self-defence.
From Mixed Martial Arts we know that the most effective fighting systems are jiu jitsu and thai boxing, which both are mostly addressed in the course.
