Self Defense

At Igor MMA we provide Individual, Group, and Corporate Self Defense Courses.

Individual and Group Self Defense Lessons

Self Defense is the use of a technically specific set of skills supported by physical force to counter an immediate threat of violence. Such force can be either armed or unarmed. In either case, the chances of success depend on a large number of parameters, related to the severity of the threat on one hand, but also on the mental and physical preparedness of the defender. In general Self Defense techniques are designed to help a smaller and weaker person defend them selves or their loved ones from a larger and stronger opponent.

Corporate Self Defense Courses

Today, assaults against law enforcement officers and other professionals,as well as excessive force allegations are at an all-time high. Our Instructors work closely with Law Enforcement, Military Special Forces, Air Marshals, and Security Companies to  customize self-defense training to suit the participants’ lifestyles, occupations, age groups, gender, physical and mental capabilities. We have developed programs that professionals could use that are non-violent and court-defensible.

Universal Applicability
The techniques in our programs are designed to be effective for any military, law enforcement, or other professionals  regardless of age, gender, size, or athletic ability (we recommend a minimum level of fitness). While most other defensive tactics programs rely on the strength, speed, and coordination of the user, all the techniques in our programs are based entirely on leverage, timing, and efficient use of energy so that they can be successfully applied by anyone against a larger, stronger subject in the field.

Reduced Liability
One allegation of excessive force can undermine a Law Enforcement or Corporate organisation’s authority and jeopardise its relationship with the community it serves. All the techniques in our courses are specifically designed to be maximally effective, while at the same time minimally injurious to the subject on whom they are being applied. Nearly all of the organisations that have adopted our programs have reported a significant decrease in the number of excessive force allegations.

Our Basic FASDT and Basic FASDT ICS programs have been recently adopted by the Qantas Air Crews and their Aviation Security Training Crew.

We were also honored to provide a customised Self Defense Course for the Discovery Channel Staff.
