WELCOME TO THE DYNAMIC
SELF-DEFENCE ACADEMY

World-class street self defence training

 

FEEL READY. BE READY.

Our specialised blend of martial arts techniques, fitness training and pressure testing has been honed into one of the best street self-defence systems possible, delivered by accredited Master Trainers with over 35 years of combined experience. By employing low student-to-instructor ratios in our fully-equipped purpose-built training centre in Hendon, we can give you a powerful confidence-boost and make sure you’re ready to handle any situation.

OUR APPROACH

At the heart of our comprehensive self-defence system is Krav Maga, the simple and instinctive fighting system employed by the Israel Defence Forces, chosen for its extreme efficiency in real-life situations.


This is combined with specific techniques from other martial arts, such as the hand-speed from boxing, the range of kicks used in Muay Thai and the grappling holds of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, to give you even greater skill.


Time in each session is given to fitness training, to develop your strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, so you can apply the techniques effectively.


The final ingredient is our extensive ‘pressure testing’. By showing you how to cope with adrenaline rushes, face-to-face combat encounters and unpredictable real-world environments, we make sure you feel ready to react no matter what life throws at you.

 

WHY TRAIN WITH US?

There are so many good reasons to join the DSD Academy.

Many of our students arrive at our studio in search of developing confidence, physical fitness and street safety. Others are looking to generate a sense of courage and inner peace.  Some have had a bad experience whilst others just want to prepare themselves for challenges they may have to face. 
Whatever your motivation, age or ability, our classes can help you.

Build your self-confidence and resilience under pressure

Improve your fitness and strength

Feel mentally and physically prepared for any challenge

TESTIMONIALS

 

“Being a cabbie means I can find myself in some tricky situations to say the least. The mix of skills at DSDA is perfect for me. I can build on the karate I used to do, and now feel I’ve got all I need to get out of trouble when it happens.”
