Selfdefence for schools,
colleges & universities
Knowledge is power thus proactive schools and colleges are taking a keen interest in the safety of
their students. In today’s world being aware of and practising good general personal safety awareness,
coupled with simple, effective and easy to remember physical self-defence techniques is essential.
Our courses therefore focus on both the physical techniques as well as fine-tuning students’
overall general personal safety awareness knowledge.
Most schools and Colleges these days adopt some form of anti bullying policy. But unfortunately, these
policies tend to take effect after a bullying incident has occurred in many cases this is to little to
late as the bullied child is already traumatised from the mindless tormenting of what is little more
than a coward who sees a weaker person as an easy target.
THE CURRENT ANTI-BULLYING POLICIES ARE JUST PAPER EXERCISES, ARE RARELY PUT INTO PRACTICE AND
EVEN IF THEY ARE, CONCENTRATE ON THE VICTIM RATHER THAN THE BULLY, THEREFORE MAKING THE VICTIM EVEN
MORE OF A VICTIM.
We at selfdefence.in believe parents/teachers/youth workers and children themselves should be pro
active in their approach to the subject of bullying be it physical or mental.
selfdefence.in therefore tailor their youth courses with this in mind.
Q: What does the course cover?
A: Our self-defence courses are designed for the everyday person. Dependent on the age group being
taught, we modify the course accordingly in terms of general content. However, all our courses cover
personal safety awareness in ones daily life as well as focusing on easy to remember and effective
physical self-defence techniques. Our courses are ideal for teaching not only young adults at
college but also the teaching of child self protection and child personal safety awareness skills.
The workshop focuses on AVOIDANCE - ESCAPE- VERBAL
DIFFUSION then on practical and highly effective self-defence technique training.
The workshop covers the following:
Personal safety talk & safety in students daily life
Drug Rape Awareness (this is modified for the younger groups)
Identification of risk situations and avoidance (adapted depending on age group being taught)
Teaching participants practical & highly effective self-defence skills
Identifying target areas on an attacker’s body
Educate participants that they have choices when they are faced with an attack situation
Understanding the violent mind
Breakdown misconceptions of rape/violence
Build confidence in students own capabilities
Information on & the avoidance of the alarming rise of drinks being drugged to rob or sexually
Q: Is the course a martial arts course?
A: No, we have designed our courses specifically with the everyday student in mind basing course
content on real life safety awareness concerns and real life attack patterns that we have studied over
many years. A Martial Art is a sport and a way of life. It is therefore not always practical when it
comes to realistic, effective and easy to remember self-defence techniques for the average
Q: How long is a workshop?
A Selfdefence.in is flexible as to when the course can be offered at the school or college. We can come
in during the school or college day, in the afternoons or even on weekends.
Q: How many students are in a workshop?
A: We require a minimum of 14 students per session and a maximum of 30. The course is partially
designed around role-play between partners thus this minimum number is set in order to facilitate
this instruction approach.
Q: Do you train both girls/women and boys/men?
A: Yes, we teach both girls/ women and boys/men. However, we teach these groups separately for a couple
of reasons. Firstly the patterns of attack tend to be different for males and females: Generally when a
male is attacked the attack is usually from the front and invariably does not have a sexual motive
compared to an attack on a female by a man which is often from behind and often has a sexual motive.
Thus the types of defence techniques taught vary in order to deal with the different attack patterns.
Secondly, women tend to feel more comfortable in a group with just women when subjects such as rape and
sexual abuse are discussed.
Q: What age group do you teach?
A: We run workshops for different age groups: 15 years and upward, 12-14 years & 8-11
years old. The age groups are split in this way as the course content varies slightly between the
different age groups as we take into account the independence levels, life style of the different age
groups and maturity of the students.
Q: What is the cost of a workshop?
A: The cost is 500 + VAT( per student. )
Q: Where are the workshops held?
A: Selfdefence.in will come in and teach at your school/college. Some schools/colleges run the
workshops during school time as a life skills programme, whilst others have them in the afternoon or
after school or on a weekend. We will be happy to discuss what the most suitable times would be for
your school or college.
Q: How much space do you need?
A: As space no larger than the size of a classroom.
Q: Do we need to provide any equipment?
A: No, Selfdefence.in provides all the necessary training equipment.
