Leigh is happy to teach open events and private seminars. 

Workshops differ to Seminars because they are predominately non-physical lectures and presentations. Although some physical excersice my occur, the purpose of the workshops is to develop the non-physical aspects of Self-Defence, Combat & Martial Arts.


Personal Security Workshop is a 2 hour introduction to realistic Self-Defence training. The majority of the course deals with soft skills and includes; awareness, conflict management, de-escalation, escaping training. A small amount of hard skills (ie fighting techniques) are taught near the end of the session.
