Selection of basic self-defense techniques from the system SELF-DEFENSE 1

Course description:

Systematical and comprehensible teaching in System SELF-DEFENSE 1 is customised for beginners and people with no previous self-defense or martial arts experience. Teaching is logically divided into thematic units of practise which include selected simple and functional self-defense principles against most common threatening situations and types of attacks. The course consists of 15 –20 lessons of technical self-defense and includes an important workshop „Psychology in self-defense“.. The system of teaching thus includes both: the „technical self-defense“ and the very important part of „psychology“. Trainings are suitable for men and women.

Overall, this course provides a valuable basis and could be seen also as a very good threshold experience into further martial arts or self-defense training.

Where we train:

Bratislava - town centre. Zochova street 9 (The gym is in the school of SPEŠ)

Training organizer reserves the right to exclude from training and workshops individuals in which they are seen and manifested:
signs of an abuse of the learned combat skills, signs of override behavior over the others, signs of aggressive behavior, signs of non-controlled anger, signs of abuse of the learned skills to the intentional harm to other trainees or to people out of the training and trainees who repeatedly don´t pay attention to instructions given by the coach and thus increasing a risk of injury to self or to others.

Self-defense and combat skills are taught within the frame of one´s own protection & prevention, the protection of others, correspondingly also within the scope of protection of the material goods and the property and most of all within the frame of humanism.
