About this course

“Our professional self-defence instructors’ course has been carefully designed to provide a proven business model for those that wish to deliver personal security and self-defence as a second income or part of an existing business”.


Rapid Action Initiated Defence (RAID) is a uniquely different approach to modern self-defence and conflict management through advanced scientific research supported by core principles that have been pressure tested in the real world. The System has been designed by retired members of the UK Armed Forces, provides different levels of competency as a tutor (DT), instructor (PSDI), trainer (PSDT) or coach (PSDC).

By becoming an instructor at the level of PSDI, you will not only be licensed to deliver this unique system and its qualification at level 3 to men and women in your designated areas, but also have a progressive pathway to becoming a Personal Security & Defence Coach (PSDC) . So if you have ever thought about becoming a Personal Security & Defence Instructor (PSDI), or are looking to start a new career or supplement your income giving back to society invaluable skills in personal security and defence then this course might be for you.


Anyone can take this course that want to teach others the RAID philosophy and system to create a safer and more confident lifestyle. If you have existing experience such as Military, Security or Martial Arts then this will amplify your existing experience.
