Martial arts are of course primary associated with self defence. But not everyone wants the traditional trappings associated with traditional arts, but everyone wants or in fact NEEDS, to know how to protect themselves and their loved ones. For an example, just see this video. This is more evident today than ever, with crime all around us. Harrow Martial Arts runs courses designed with the average person in mind, you donít have to be super fit, you donít have to wear a martial arts uniform, as our courses have been tailored for everyday people like you. Harrow Martial Arts offers both personal and corporate courses, and private tuition in Self defence.
Harrow Martial Arts Self defence courses run on a regular basis. Our courses are specifically designed to account for `non-martial artists`, people that either havn`t the time or inclination to visit and train at a standard martial arts school.

The courses are organised with both lecture-based and practical components, designed to cover both the theory & practical applications behind self protection, thus reducing the probability that you will become a victim of a violent crime & of course give useful training on a practical level for dealing with such issues. Best of all, our classes are not only very educational, but fun as well!

Course participants should be of good health; with those with any medical concerns consulting a doctor before hand, although the courses are not physically intensive so should not create a problem for most people. With that said, should there be any parts of the course which participants do not feel comfortable with, they make simply step back and watch that section.

Female or male, from Corporate Directors to secretaries, those in all industries, anyone that travels on foot, in a car, on a bus etc. Anyone and everyone will benefit from a learning Self defence.
