My aim is to cultivate genuine human values and to promote the correct application of Martial Arts as a useful life skill and as one way of preventing offensive reaction by gaining self-control and confidence being able to think appropriately when an unpredictable offensive situation arises channelizing intention through the right way only for self-defence.

Video and Courses Important Explanation:


SDF Street Defence Fitness: The technical program was made from a Physical Education and Self-defence perspective all the classes will be following a proper pedagogic and didactic progression of teaching and learning process based on a professional teaching program and it will be tailored to each group’s physical capability requirements and age; the main objective is to provide a very dynamic applied to street self-defence and fitness training including: endurance, power, speed, flexibility, agility and coordination, combining things in an easy way using all body parts including: how to fall and protect yourself, grabs escape, weapon defence from several offenders, evasion and defensive skills without contact, in a respectful and helpful class environment.


DEMO VIDEOS: The learning process doesn’t have anything to do with these demo videos, some of them are illustrative only and they may look too fast, powerful or advanced but any of these techniques weren’t made to be copied or replicated in any way and it isn’t meant for promoting violence in any way but only to demonstrate some possible street situations, controlled escape-response and the power that could be involve in some moves for people to be aware of what could be happen and the importance of self-control because any uncontrolled move could cause unexpected results.

Any technique learned should be taken with responsibility, discipline, dedication and respect to others all the time and they should be used only in the last case of self- defence.

DEFINITION; Learning Self Defence will provide the student a sense of helping and respect for others together with a skill for life.  The main objective is to overcome the resistance with just reasonable force only when is required, however the strong sense of personal security obtained by knowing self defence will make a person calm until an assault situation giving him time to think and make the right decision. The aim is to avoid any aggressive or provocative behavior and to learn to control force by applying the right technique with the right timing and minimum force.
