Self Defence Reading

Safety for all

At some point in our lives, we are faced with situations that make us feel vulnerable and in fear of our safety – or the safety of those with us. Our self-defence classes in Berkshire will teach you how to handle and protect yourself in a variety of common scenarios where you may be confronted and in danger.

Where our martial arts classes train students on entire systems of combat, our self-defence classes focus on awareness and a smaller range of straightforward and effective combat techniques that can reliably disarm and disable anyone who is threatening you or another person’s safety.

Any age and any background

While it is true that self-defence classes are particularly valuable for helping women stay safe, our classes are designed to equip any individual with the skills they need to feel protected and capable – whatever their background or gender.

Simple techniques and fast results

Learning how to navigate difficult situations where violence may be involved is no small feat. Our community is built around trust, respect and good manners; we want you to feel welcome as a beginner and comfortable as you learn. Our training centre is a safe space where any person can apply themselves and develop their self-defence skills.

Supporting classmates and teachers

If you are keen to learn how to protect yourself, but don’t have the time to commit to learning a full martial arts system, our self-defence classes in Reading will be ideal for you. Designed to provide real results in a condensed format, you will quickly find yourself learning a comprehensive set of combat techniques that go hand-in-hand with training on self-awareness and conflict resolution.

If you have any questions about our classes or would like to book your free try-out session, please visit this page of our website for contact information. We are happy to answer any questions you might have at no obligation. We hope to welcome you soon to the Thames Valley Taekwon-Do community.
