Self Defence

AAPES Self Defence classes aren’t interested in ego, muscles or rank. Classes are about learning how to make you as safe as possible in the environments you move in. Using the S.P.E.A.R. system and associated concepts, you will learn to negotiate, run, deal with muggers, murderers, rapists and your awful big brother. Available to both adults and kids.
