Join our in-person Real " Person" 12 Module Self Defense Course
We have been teaching Krav Maga for Self defence for 15 years
We believe for self-defense to be effective it needs to be learned fast, easy to remember and work under pressure for most people, which is why we have developed our unique course which has been taken thousands of people in person.
Based down a laneway in Dublin, Ireland, Patrick Cumiskey has been teaching everyday normal people to protect themselves full time for more than 15 years, during this time he developed a simple approach to teaching normal people to protect themselves fast using essential Krav Maga concepts.
If you can’t make it to his in person, you can now take the course online.
You can ‘join’ in a course and get the same lessons and insight as those attend the course.
To make this course available 2 cameramen tracked a full 2-day course and which was then edited it down to the essentials for you to watch, learn and follow along with. There is no ‘staging’ or retakes so you get the course as it is delivered in real life.
The course is taught in 12 modules Each module builds on the previous module step by step, over the 12 modules you will develop a practical, useful and simple self-defence system deal with common stand up self-defence threats.
We recommend you grab a partner and follow along with one module at a time, watch the module and following along with the exercises and drills.
The course starts off in Module 1 by giving you a key grounding in avoiding being selected as a victim and how to strike and escape, it then moves on to more difficult and complicated scenarios integrating ideas with ever module.
