About Basic Self Defence

Welcome to a new year at the Basic Self Defence Society!

At the Basic Self Defence Society, we offer a wide range of martial arts and self defence systems including: aikido, boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, eskrima, judo and krav maga. Our free membership includes access to weekly sessions and workshops. The techniques you acquire in these sessions will not only improve your focus but develop your ability to confidently assess situations.

Beyond physical defences, we find it important to teach the theory of self defence. This includes laws, situational awareness and vital/vulnerable points on the body. We also run weekly socials to give you the opportunity to meet new people from the university.

If you have any questions, please message our social media pages. We all look forward to meeting you!
