Charities and further help


We know that not everyone who takes up a martial art does so because they want to improve themselves. Many people look to self-defence because they are afraid of being attacked, or they have been in the past.

While we offer lessons for self-defence, it should still only be used as a last resort. Avoiding situations where self-defence is necessary comes first.

With that goal in mind we have collated this list of charities, organisations and government bodies that can provide help and support for those who might need it.

We hope to expand this list with more organisations over time, so if you have a suggestion then feel free to suggest any organiastions that have helped you or someone you know using the form at the bottom of this page.
