Children’s Self Protection & Anti Bullying Training in Worthing

My self-protection methods are not just theories tested out on compliant training partners. They have been fully tested on the pavement arena for 15 years as a doorman, so I really do know what works and what doesn’t.

David Oakley is a specialists in Conflict Management, Personal Safety, Situational Awareness, Knives and Edged Weapons Awareness and Physical Intervention.

Please note a maximum of 6 students per class.

Sad but its true!

Bullies don’t care about the guest speaker you brought in to talk about bullying.
Bullies don’t care about the schools bullying policies.
Bullies don’t care about your one day anti bullying traditional martial arts seminar you put on.
Bullies don’t care because it’s not a fair fight.

My number one priority when teaching children is to get through to them that avoidance is the best option, and to be aware of whats happening around them in real time. Unfortunately sometimes, there is nothing you can do when a sudden attack takes place. You may think I’m exaggerating or being sensational, but the truth is, when faced with 2-3 or more attackers, you can be looking at death or life changing injuries. Only just recently in Worthing we have all seen the videos on social media of bullied children being kicked none stop on the ground in the head, neck and spine. My bullying and kids self protection program is designed to get children out of the situation, and home alive. This is not just learning how to fight, but learning how to survive, and give them as much chance as possible to get to a place of safety.

Absolutely the most valuable course my daughter and I have ever done. David was a complete professional and offered loads of practical stay safe advice as well as physical self protection. The self defence tuition is very hands on, and we were both exhausted afterwards but we both felt it was exactly what was needed. To defend yourself effectively you need to understand what it would be like to be restrained and to be able to free yourself from such holds. Fantastic value for money, very reasonably priced for such a valuable service. Both myself and my daughter (aged 19, who is going off backpacking alone for most of 2019) feel so much more empowered after David’s lesson. I wish we had done it years ago. A must for woman and young girls, especially those going travelling. We’ll definitely be back for another refresher lesson in the summer. Thank you!

We cannot rate David highly enough. We have used his services for one to one self defence training and he is amazing. He is incredibly patient and is a very good teacher. We feel that we could not have picked anyone more experienced or better to help our situation. We highly recommend him. We only wish that we had found him a long time ago and it might of avoided the situation we have found ourselves in.

I am a registered physical intervention trainer and fully qualified conflict management trainer. I have worked in the security industry for over fifteen years and  considered one of the leading experts in the self defence industry. I have trained hundreds of people in direct conflict management for real life situations drawing directly from my experience working in mental health, door security and surveillance officer for one of the UK’s largest casinos.

I have also worked alongside, New York’s ‘Guardian Angels’ specialising in diffusing high tension and violent situations in the Bronx

When faced with a attempted sexual or violent attack most people will freeze and do nothing … It’s called an amygdala hijack.”. You can learn all the self defence moves you like, but they will be totally useless to you, unless you understand how to override and reprogram the limbic system within the brain. My training covers all the psychological effects of being attacked as well as the the physical counter measures you will need to survive a violent attack.
