About Basic Self Defence

Welcome to a new year at The Basic Self Defence Society, with a new Committee and a new academic year!

At the Basic Self Defence Society we offer a wide range of Martial Arts and Self Defence systems, including: Akido, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Eskrima, Judo and Krav Maga. The techniques you acquire will not only improve your focus, but develop your ability to confidently assess situations. 

Beyond the Physical Defences, we find it important to teach the theory of self defence. This can include laws, situational awareness and vital/vulnerable points on the body. With your membership you can attend our socials, either days or nights out, Christmas meals, and a number of other great activities.

We will be running weekly classes and socials to give you the opportunity to meet new people from the university, whilst providing you with the mental and physical capacity to defend yourself. 

We all look forward to meeting you!
