Our team offers UK wide employee personal safety training for people who might find themselves at risk during their employment. Sadly, a whole host of customer facing roles find those employees potentially vulnerable to attack. Knowing how to defend yourself is a vital skill that everyone should know.
Our work training Police Officers and other First Responders gives us the experience and skills that are necessary to be able to train your employees to keep them safe and to bring a safe working environment for others.
These courses are an excellent way to keep your employees safe and demonstrate that their safety is of the utmost importance. They are also a great team building session and boost morale through employees feeling safer and knowing that their safety is being put as a top priority by their employers.
Our employee personal safety training helps employers comply with their legal responsibilities under the Health and Safety Act, and others, to provide such training and equipment to keep their employees safe.
In private industry our training is ideal for security personnel and teams, commercial flight crews, airport staff, hospital staff, retail staff, bank staff, civil servants, social care workers, school and university workers, etc.
We provide one and two day courses at your premises or we can arrange suitable local venues. We also provide one day refresher courses as well.
For groups of between 8 and 30 participants we will take them through the basics of self defence, awareness, how to handle threats, and how to de-escalate situations. The training allows people to understand the law and what constitutes reasonable force so that they know how to deal with a wide variety of different situations.
The courses differ depending on the businesses requirement, the industry and the relevant risks. All centred around the employee being able to defend themselves and control any attacker, whether they be unarmed or have a weapon.
Our very experienced instructors will teach your employees our advanced self defence system in a safe and supportive environment. The aim of the training is to avoid a confrontation and escalation in the first place. If that isn’t possible, then we teach them the necessary skills to be able to protect themselves, their colleagues and members of the public.
The techniques aren’t complicated and can be used by anyone. They don’t require any prior experience, unusual physical strength, flexibility or coordination. Most people don’t naturally know how to safely defend themselves. Our courses fix that and make them much safer both at, and away from, work.
Different areas covered include;
• How to be safe in your daily life
• How to identify and assess a threat
• Use of body language
• How to maintain a safe distance
• How to escape and evade the confrontation
• How to de-escalate a situation
• Defensive stances
• How to block strikes
• How to escape holds, throat grabs, headlocks, pins, etc
• Self defence techniques
• What constitutes reasonable force
We are realistic with regards to what can be taught to participants of different abilities and ages. Technique is far more important than size and strength.

My children (7 and 6) absolutely love attending MMA Defence (Little Lions). The sessions are well structured with excellent instructors that have positive influence on the children’s progression. The ethos is clear; the sessions objectives are clear on building children’s confidence emotionally together with the physical aspect of defending oneself. In addition, the sessions continue to build on maintaining self discipline and promoting respect for all.
You all should pat yourselves on the back for continuing such a great standard of instruction through what is proving to be a difficult time for all – you have been our stability through the weeks and months. Thanks for all you do, it is much appreciated.
My 6 year old joined in about September he absolutely loves it, it has really brought out his confidence. The instructors are amazing too.
MMA Defence classes are absolutely fantastic. The team are friendly, accommodating and do an amazing job. Great atmosphere, good syllabus structure and they offer grading to encourage progression and self positivity.
The classes are really good. The team who take the classes make you feel welcome.
From 6 to 60 everyone is welcome and I’ve learned so much the past few months and feel so much better in myself. To be honest I’m sorry I didn’t do something like this 20 or so years ago. Best thing I’ve ever done for myself and feel like I’m learning as well as achieving something.
If you train under the instructors here, then you will learn. I guarantee that you’ll leave each session with a new and effective skill that will help you in later life. The instructors are excellent, as they know what they’re talking about and they work with you every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier to train under them at this MMA school
From our first enquiry regarding joining the MMA classes, we were made to feel valued and welcome. They took time to phone me and talk through the programme and what was on offer.
My 8 year old son and I attended our first session and were welcomed and looked after so well. We love the classes and the friendly staff and structured programme. Definitely happy to recommend.
The MMA Defence team is like a big family; they’re always welcoming, cheerful and encouraging. I attend classes with my two daughters aged 10 and 7. We are constantly pushing ourselves and developing in fitness and confidence. We always leave classes feeling so pumped and proud of ourselves.
We thoroughly enjoy our time at MMA Defence. The team of instructors are first rate. They manage to make every session enjoyable but also individually challenging, working towards your own limits. There’s a broad age range of members who are catered for professionally but in a fun way. We would recommend joining us, no matter your age or fitness level.
Exactly how I wanted it to be.
First session and straight into learning.
The club is very friendly and welcoming which means a lot if you are coming in as a beginner in MMA or any type of fitness training. The instructors are always on hand to help and allow you to go at your own pace. It’s a fantastic mix of training and skills that makes it fun and exciting to progress in and keep you motivated. I would recommend anyone to give it a go!
The club is ideal for all ages, very welcoming, without judgement over abilities or fitness.
The instructors are all about encouraging, not shouting at or telling students off. You come away from the classes on a high and knackered, it’s exercising in an enjoyable and fun way.
As a 52 year old unfit parent, I highly recommend these classes.
You’re all doing a great job. I try to spread the word near and far for you.
