Feeling very grateful for the recent reviews of the private 1 to 1’s we have been running.

In our private sessions we teach all ages and this is some of the recent feedback from some of the adults that are absolutely smashing it and given it a 100%.

If you are interested in any private sessions please do not hesitate to contact us. πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

Please join us in congratulating our students of the Month. πŸ‘

All these warriors always have shown great improvement in class and have definitely stepped up in their approach to training. We always make sure we give praise to all our students who show continuous improvement so this award is very much deserved. πŸ‘

This week during the Junior classes we are covering the subject of dealing with being approached by adults and then being grabbed.

We started off talking about avoidance and awareness (The most important part of Self Defence/Protection) and covering how an adult may approach the child with various questions trying to take them to a secondary location, to then it escalating to being grabbed and how to deal with it. As you can see from photos below all the Junior warriors smashed it and did awesome as usual. πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

πŸ‘Proud Instructor MomentπŸ‘

We always love hearing from our students and proud parents where they have had to deal with a problematic situation and come out the other side safely without harm.

Yesterday we had another example of this when one of our students proudly told us how they used what they have learnt in class to successfully deal with a bully who was trying to intimidate and harm them. πŸ’ͺ

This is why we are passionate about what we teach and love what we do. We could not be more proud of all our students and how hard they work in class. ❀️

πŸ“£ Announcement from Head Instructor Darren πŸ“£

At Evolve Self Defence we always strive to provide the best self protection sessions for our students. We are a great believer in continuous growth, improvement and always being a student!

This weekend, I successfully completed a Woman focused Combative Instructor course under Urban Combatives Founder Lee Morrison. This was a great course and insight into dealing with specific threats and issues that are specific to woman and how to approach with dealing with these threats.

11/05/2022

Awesome sessions this week in our Juniors and Teens class working on the principle of Cover-Crash-Counter. We worked on being pre-emptive against an aggressive subject, then we worked on being reactive against an aggressive subject.

We also worked on some determination drills and on the mindset of keep pushing and never giving up. All our warriors did awesome as usual and some even surprised theirselves on what they achieved! πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

This week we celebrate Evolve Self Defence being 3 years old this week! I would like to thank all our students, parents and supporters for making it the great club that it is today. πŸ™

We love seeing how our students have shown continuous growth with us in their confidence, determination and their attitude (and not just in their height too! 🀣).

I would also like to give a big shout out to Instructor Dan for who is a big part of what makes the club what it is with his continuous help and support. πŸ™

We are excited with what the future brings as the club continues to grow! πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

πŸ™ Lovely Review From The Guides πŸ™

This week we had the privilege to be invited back to teach the Guides one of our workshops. We had so much fun and are thankful for the lovely review.

β€œThis is our second session with Darren and his team, i run the 1st Bitterne Park Guides, and we asked Darren to run an introduction to self defence.
At first the girls were nervous, but Darren and Dan soon relaxed them, getting them into doing all the self defence moves.
Sixteen girls aged between 10 and 14 are a challenge to keep focused, but Darren managd this effortlessly.
The girls engaged in the activity, became competitive and throughly enjoyed the session.
the hour and a half disappeared in a wink of the eye.
One of the most rewarding parts from a guiders point of view was the enjoyment on Darren and Dans faces as the girls practiced their moves on them.
Would definitely recommend them, and will be getting them to do sessions with us again.

Thank you so much Darren and Dan”

Last night in the Teens class we covered the High - Low Line Principle.

We worked the entry of using the Fence for deception then we used the slap for high line entry and then followed by knees for low line. We then ended with the Sn**ch for the take down then escape.

We are proud of all our students but these 2 warriors have been with us from the beginning. The progress they have made from being the shy teens at the beginning, to the change in mindset to being confident and giving a 100% every lesson. We could not be more prouder. πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

πŸ“£ Announcement from Head Instructor Darren πŸ“£

Yesterday has been one of my most proudest achievements so far in my Self Protection journey. Yesterday I achieved my goal of becoming an Urban Combatives Full Instructor.

I’ve been very fortunate to train with Lee Morrison (Founder of Urban Combatives) for a while now. Lee is well recognised and well thought of in Martial Arts/Self Defence/Self Protection. I’ve learnt so much from Lee and he has changed the way I approach self protection and the way I teach.

I was lucky enough to be accepted on the Urban Combatives Instructor course which has ran for a long 6 months. We started off with 27 participants and only 12 of us was successful. It’s been both physically and mentally challenging and has definitely pushed me to my limits and beyond. Anyone who has ever seen the final instructor stress test knows how extremely tough it is! Believe me it was definitely one of the toughest things I’ve ever done!

I’m excited for what I have learned to start introducing into my classes and what the future brings to Evolve. We are always learning, adapting and evolving and improving what we teach.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout. πŸ™

πŸ‘ŠDealing with grabsπŸ‘Š

This week in the Juniors we will be covering dealing with various grabs. We always start the class with avoidance, then we progress from dealing from unwanted grabs from children to dealing with dangerous grabs from adults.

These mini warriors from Oasis Hub: East Southampton smashed the lesson. πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š

⚠️Busy Junior classes this this week covering the dangers of knifes. πŸ”ͺ

We learnt, through playing games, the danger of knifes, avoidance and getting to a safe place when the knife was spotted. We started off hiding the knife under objects around the room where they had to give as much detail as they can remember of where it was located and what the knife looked like. Then eventually building up through the lesson to someone coming in the room with a knife. πŸ₯·

Was great to see the quick reaction of the students with drawing attention of the danger to others using their voice and running away from the danger to a safe place. πŸ’ͺπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

We could not be more proud of how they all reacted.
