This month we've added the next videos for members to view where I explain how you can use various parts of your body as a weapon. These are parts of the body that you might not ordinarily think of using if you were ever confronted with a challenging situation.

We recently ran a course at Conyers School in Stockton-on-Tees.

Here is some of the feedback !

"Owen was fab again! Fab session, very worthwhile. I can't wait for the session next year."  - Teacher at Conyers School

"I can't believe how useful it was. I came along to have a laugh but it really made me realise how vulnerable I was and how, if under attack - I would do all the wrong things! A really valuable session. Thanks Owen!"

"I would recommend this for all college students. Fantastic day!"

"Absolutely brilliant day. I've already practiced it at home on all my family members!"

A grey area for many people is self defence and the law. Would you know what the maximum possible prison sentence would be for someone making a threat to kill another person?

Would it be:

a) There would be no custodial sentence. The court would more than likely simply dismiss this without any evidence that there was any intent.

b) Up to 18 months suspended.

c) Up to 10 years in prison.

You may be surprised to learn the answer. Click here

Click here to read some interesting content we have added regarding self defence and the law.

It is all to do with how you perceive the level of threat.

And that is what I explain in the four new videos we have uploaded relating to dynamic risk assessment. You can view them below.

Simply tap in your membership password.

In the meantime stay out of trouble.

With another year drawing to a close it's about that time again to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year! In 2016 Gary will be uploading more videos and adding some very interesting articles (for our Members) relating to Self Defence and the Law. We have also been talking about releasing a Podcast for members to listen to on subjects such as "When do you call the Police?" and "What happens when the Police become involved?".

On Sunday gone we made some new videos relating to anti-rape techniques (Number 21 of 25). It's a serious subject but Craig and Laura, two of my regular pupils handled these videos very well. We've uploaded several videos to give people a sample of the type of videos that are available to paying members, and we will leave them password free for you to view for a limited period only. Please take time to watchAnti-Rape-Technique-Thumbnail through these videos they show how simple techniques could help females and (indeed for that matter males) if ever they found themselves in an awkward situation where there are attacked by a sexual predator. Paying members will be able to view these with the usual password once the password protection goes on in the usual way. Click here to view the videos. Free for a limited time only.

Update for September 2015. See young Michael learn (the hard way!) about the difference between sleepers and chokes more...Young-Michael-learning-about-sleepers.png

More new members joining all the time, one of whom, Andy asked me to video the clothes grab from the front move. Members (including Andy) can view these videos by clicking here. Once you have joined you can either practise with me in person at the gym and / or ask for bespoke videos to be made for you to watch later in your own time. Members who have already joined can watch these videos by entering your password in the usual way.

Update for August 2015. Good to see a few new members joining recently and soon they will be able to see new videos on my website. Gary who looks after my website for me is busy uploading the number 25 videos which relate to defence against multiple attackers and we have got threeAndy - clothes grab from the front strike and walk past new videos at level two, also Levels 3+4 added July 31st 2015. These three videos give you three scenarios as to how to deal with two aggressors at the second level of perceived threat. New and current members are reminded that it's not just about the videos that are already covered on my website. You can email me with requests for scenarios you may feel have not been covered on the website. Once you have become a member and signed up through PayPal for only £2 per week! you can email me with your suggestions. Ideas we have had put forward recently have included scenarios such as "what do you do if you're attacked while sitting down driving your car, when you're stuck in traffic". Or even out how to handle an aggressor at your front door (therefore possibly in a confined space). These videos and more are available to view in my members section of my website. But remember stay out of trouble!

If you can't get to my gym, or if you don't live in the North East of England, or simply want to learn self defence online.....sign up now and view my videos shot at my gym. Click Here.

We are busy now uploading all the videos that will be available to view for anyone wanting to teach themselves self defence online. The videos are being shot and uploaded to my website each week based on our weekly self defence session every Sunday at my gym. So, if you can't make it down in person the next best thing is to become a member and watch the videos from the comfort of your own home! The dates each topic is covered are on the 'Members' section. We upload the videos as we go and they are availbale to view during the week from Thursday morning onwards.

All the lessons have different participants in that some videos show a male versus male aggressor, some show a male versus female, female versus female (hairpulls) etc. There are some for parents to show children how they can learn to defend themselves. Some videos will be shot in real life scenarios, for example a park during the day and then that same park at night! For only £2.00 per week you can become a 'Member'. We will then email you with a password (within 24 hours of signing up through PayPal)  to have access to the videos. Interested in seeing the good stuff ?? Click Here

We will also be open to request from members at to what they would like the videos to feature. Once you have signed up you will be able to suggest techniques to be featured in future videos as we intend to add new videos on a weekly basis. Interested in seeing the good stuff ?? Click Here

We also intend to feature research on 'the law and self defence' (United Kindom only). Where do you stand in law if you use these techniques? How and when (and how much force) does the law permit you to use in self defence? We will be showing examples and precedents that have been set  already by test cases in the courts of law in this country. All will be revealed soon in my 'Members Section'.


Courses Available Soon For People Of All Ages , Male or Female

Young or Old you can benefit from my training.


Lack of confidence is an inner thing. Please do not let this put either you (or in the case of parents) or your child be put off coming on my courses -- the whole point is to nurture and build your self esteem / confidence -- Only you can make that first step.


If you are worried about being 'unfit' - then please don't worry about this (the other 95% of the population are also 'unfit'!) and anyway that's the whole point! I take these sessions very gently based on each individuals personal fitness levels.
