The Best Defence is a self-protection and defence programme that gives men and women the right 'toolbox' to deal with any potentially dangerous situation.

Best Defence

Avoidance, Diffusion and the Skills to Defend

Best Defence is Protect's complete reality-based self-protection programme - open to adults of all ages, from all walks of life. Best Defence lays a foundation for recognising and understanding confrontation and violence, as well as teaching you the skills to diffuse and the techniques to defend. 

Best Defence is offered as a series of three interactive seminars that can take you from the building blocks of de-escalation strategies and real-world physical defence, right through to defence against weapons, Senshido’s renowned 'shredder' concept, and an advanced programme that deals with defence against firearms and multiple attackers. 

You do not need to book all three courses at once. Participants are welcome to attend only Best Defence, and can choose whether to undertake the Advanced and Max courses once it is completed. 

Women who have completed Protect's Safe For Life programme are also welcome to join Best Defence at the advanced level. 

With a strong focus on recognising and preventing violence where possible in the early stages of a confrontation, Best Defence includes training on avoidance and awareness strategies, de-escalation and diffusion, and physical defence concepts and techniques. 

Protect uses a training method called 'alive', which ensures that participants receive training and skills that can be applied immediately. 

No special physical training is required to take part in this real-world self-defence course. In the words of Protect founder Phil Thomson: "If you can reach up and get a glass out of a cupboard, then you are fit enough to get involved in Best Defence".
