We insure our cars, our pets and homes, but why don’t we put some insurance on ourselves? Life insurance is only valuable when your dead, so why not have something valuable when you’re alive? There’s nothing better then self-help. Learning self-defence may possibly save your life one day. You don’t know when you need it, but when the occasion arises you are prepared.

Craig Ma’har is very well known in the industry for his many years experience in the field, to be concrete, 36 years. In this course Craig will teach you directness, no messing around, awareness and effective self-defense techniques, based on Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.

That’s what this women self -defence course is all about.

In this course you learn to use simple and very effective techniques to overcome common attacks or to deal with unpleasant situations.  It’s not just about the emergency techniques you’ll get to learn, but also learn to prevent and avoid these very common scenarios where possible from happening. We think we can all agree that prevention is definitely a much better choice, if not your only one…
