We never know when danger will strike and hope that you would never have to defend yourself against violence, but on the chance that you have to, we want you to be prepared with tools and tactics that could help you protect yourself and those you love.

According to the South African Police Service, from 2018 to 2019, 468 reports of an assault with the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm, were recorded every day. That’s more than 170 000 cases of violence that we know of. 

What causes violence?

Psychologists say that the most common motivations for violence are attempts to express emotions, attempts to manipulate others into getting what the perpetrator wants, and retaliation to even a score. Another common cause of violence stems from being openly exposed to it and perceiving it as an appropriate way to behave.

Our 2-hour introductory self-defence classes, conducted by Elite Defence Academy, are unlike any traditional conflict training program. You will gain insight into self-defence exercises, as well as the psychological aspects of violence such as recognizing pre-attack indicators. Read the full course outline below:
