Great Yarmouth Self Defence

RAID Great Yarmouth Self Defence is the home of the Rapid Action Initiated Defence (RAID) System and home to the founder and chief instructor. All of the RAID System offerings are provided at this location, as well as the mobile training team, that will come to your location and deliver various courses or seminars.

When you train with us at great yarmouth self defence you are under the instruction from one of our self defence instructors (if not the founder himself) you know you are in good hands. As well as teaching you how to physically defend yourself, they will also help develop your confidence, personal belief and security awareness. This form of training is different from so many others that just focus on the practical aspects with no thought to Pre and Post conflict which is just as important as the defence concepts themselves.
