About What We Teach...
Academy of Self Defence use the principles of the sciences to better understand effective Self Defence.
The martial arts not only teach you how to defend yourself, but also about…
The Body; Biomechanics, Physiology, Bones & Muscles
The Mind; Focus, Intent, Visualisation, & Psychology
The Spirit; Stamina, Drive & Determination
Learning that when the Body and Mind are exhausted it is the cultivation of your Spirit that will help you to achieve your goals in both Life and in the Martial Arts.
Our main focus is on Self Defence, so we utilize multiple systems of Martial Arts so we have a better understanding of techniques for different situations, thus never limiting ourselves by only one way of thinking.
The 3 Martial Arts we teach are...
Aiki Jutsu Joint Manipulation & Balance Control
Ju Jutsu Holds, Locks, Restraints, Throwing, Takedowns & Ground Fighting
Te Jutsu Striking
The arts are taught in harmony with each other and we look closely at how the body works and doesn’t work throughout our training so as to further our understanding of how to best apply the techniques at the correct time. After all if you don’t know how the body works then how can you ever truly know how to defend yourself effectively.
True understanding only comes from doing.
