Deciding to start self-defence training is an important step so Urban Self Defence has created a self-defence for beginners course.

Marcin Reszka, our expert instructor, will effectively be your dedicated personal coach.  He will guide you through the programme in a clear and easy to follow way.  He has designed the courses for people of all ages and abilities and self-defence for beginners is an important part of the training.

Is it suitable for a complete self-defence beginner?

Urban Self Defence makes training easy as many of our workouts don’t require any equipment. Workouts that do require weights can easily be substituted with household items such as cans or bottles.

Marcin has trained many novices over the years and has specifically designed the self-defence for beginners part of the course with that in mind.  Also, most of the techniques are based on instinctive body reactions so they aren’t complicated to learn.

The fitness routines have been devised to complement the self-defence course.  However, you can do them purely for the incredible functional fitness benefits they bring to your everyday life.  The technical training focuses on mobility, strength, power, balance, and specialised skills for self-defence.  The courses are broken down into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.

You may be concerned about your fitness or mobility levels but Marcin has ensured the courses cater for all levels.  The technical and fitness courses are designed to take you from a total self-defence beginner to advanced level.  He will encourage and guide you to improve your agility, strength, power, and flexibility.  He will show you mobility drills that can be used as a warm-up or to cool down because this is an essential part of any fitness workout.

As the courses are online, you can study from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.  This means you can move onto more advanced levels when you are ready.
