Become a Criminal's Worst Nightmare

Adult Self Defense Training

We live in one of the most violent societies on planet earth. Not a day passes without someone just like you getting robbed, assaulted, hijacked, murdered and even kidnapped. Violent attackers have absolutely no mercy for their victims. They will do what they need to do to get what they want even if that means severely injuring or killing. Sadly, most people have no idea what to do in a violent situation. In school we learn math, science and life-skills but nobody teaches us the most valuable skill we need – how to protect our most valuable asset, ourselves. 

Learning self-defense should not be difficult

Many people never learn to protect themselves because they think it will be too difficult or that they are too old, out of shape, unathletic etc. Most people think that learning how to protect themselves requires years of training or that they have to learn a martial art and earn a black belt. The idea of wearing a martial arts uniform or rolling on the floor with an aggressive opponent is not very appealing. 

When surfing the internet, you are flooded with messages and images of aggressive military type instructors who tell you that learning self-defense is supposed to be hard and that you have to do their super aggressive military style training to be able to defend yourself. Surely there has to be a better way.

Effective self-defense that anyone can do

C.O.B.R.A.™ was created for ordinary people who are the most likely victims of a violent attack. People with no special skills, who are not in great physical shape, people with physical limitations and people who need to learn how to realistically protect themselves in the shortest amount of time. With C.O.B.R.A.™ you learn effective skills in weeks, not years.

C.O.B.R.A.™ comes from real life experience gained in law enforcement, correctional services and multiple combative systems. In short, it is the fastest and easiest way that anyone with no prior experience or skills can learn how to realistically protect themselves and their loved ones against a violent attacker. It was battle tested with real criminals in real life situations and therefore we know it is highly effective.

Danie van Jaarsveld
C.O.B.R.A. is by far the best self-defense training I have ever attended. It is easy to understand and apply, yet very effective. Leon is an excellent instructor. I attended it with my 3 teenage boys, and we had great fun together. I can certainly recommend it!
Jacqueline Borel-Saladin
Online webinar was very informative and really made me think about how I present myself in public from an attacker's point of view.
Carien Sander
Excellent course, will recommend for anyone. It's the BEST investment anyone can make.Leon and Yolanda are amazing instructors, they make you feel at ease and completely comfortable. They make learning very interesting and fun.Even at the beginning of the course all the techniques feel second nature to you, you think and act with a different mindset. Thank you for empowering me, I absolutely loved every second of the classes. Don't think, invest in yourself and your family!
Jenny Dennis
Thank you Leon for joining the ladies of Kwatani for a virtual self defense session. Your presentation was entertaining, but above all very informative. We left the session with knowledge of what to do should we ever be in a position that we need to defend ourselves. Highly recommended.

"Enjoyed everything, especially the awareness techniques and the deadly force techniques. The best self-defense course that taught me to become more aware of my surroundings and it also taught me pre-attack indicators. I can now defend myself much better than before. Instructors are 5 stars out of 5 stars, very accommodating and funny".
