Child classes at West Wickham Self Defence

West Wickham Self Defence can help to keep children away from the television by providing a safe setting to burn energy and socialise with friends!

At West Wickham Self Defence students are encouraged to achieve their goals through positive reinforcement and praise. We promote self-defence in a fun and safe environment and our students are shown respect for their efforts.

Unlike traditional martial arts which use ‘lock out’ techniques that can lead to injury and ill-health in later life, our techniques are easy to learn and are not stressful on the body in any way as they are based on the large flowing movements.

Sessions are based on real life situations. From the very first time your child comes to a lesson, we teach them how to avoid confrontation as well as teaching¬† ‘blocking’ and other techniques to help defend themselves.

We provide a supportive, friendly atmosphere and our classes generate a lot of positive energy.

Children are given the opportunity to encourage others, to be patient and to grow their levels of self-confidence and self-belief. Our school is an award-winning martial art centre and is one of the finest in the area with some of the best male and female best instructors in the UK.
