​What to Expect at a Self Protection Class

Each session is 90 minutes long consisting of a warm-up, physical fitness exercises and self-defence techniques. When you arrive your instructor will meet you before the lesson starts. We’ll introduce ourselves and have a chat about safety, your training goals, and any injuries or concerns you may have. You don’t need any previous experience; we all had to start somewhere.
There is a great community spirit and positive attitude at each session in a rewarding training environment. You’ll fit right in and enjoy yourself while learning some real self-protection skills from a qualified ICCA instructor. It’s something you need to see for yourself – there’s nothing quite like it.
