Adult Self-Defense Training

Bloemfontein, Free State Best Adult Self-Defense Classes

Do not live in fear!

Empower yourself with skills and knowledge that will equip you to survive any unarmed and armed attack.

Criminals view their victims as a resource. They do not care about you. They do not care that you are a good person, a responsible mother, respected executive or older person. To them you are just an opportunity. Criminals look for easy opportunity and will not hesitate to use extreme violence to accomplish their goals. No amount of pleading, hoping the threat will go away or ignoring the problem will make them stop.

We insure our homes, our cars, our tvs, even our cell phones. Yet we don’t invest in our own safety and the safety of our loved ones. Now is the time!  By enrolling in a C.O.B.R.A.™ course, you invest in your most valuable asset-yourself and your loved ones.

What you will learn

C.O.B.R.A.™ is a non-martial arts system, which means you will be in street clothes and will not be earning a belt. It is a professional program with an emphasis on student safety.

Your instructors have extensive practical experience and qualifications in law enforcement, protective services and reality self-defense and have worked with criminals for over 25 years. The knowledge and skills you will learn is based on facts and was proven to be highly effective in the real world against real criminals.


  • How criminals think and select their victims
  • Recognize pre-attack indicators  to avoid an attack
  • Conflict de-escalation skills
  • Strikes and kicks designed to be effective against real attackers
  • Defense against strikes, kicks, chokes and holds
  • Ground defense including rape situations
  • How to defend against a knife, panga or gun attack/threat
  • Use of everyday items as improvised deadly force weapons
  • Anti-abduction and hi-jack prevention techniques
  • Scenario training

Anyone can do it!

The ability to improve your situation when you find yourself in a bad one is not just for people of a certain age, gender or fitness level. Because anyone can be targeted by an attacker, everyone deserves the ability to improve their defenses. Prior experience is not neccessary to learn real life self defense. 

A lot of people will not take a self defense course because they think it’s too hard or they don’t have enough experience. C.O.B.R.A.™ was created for the widest range of students and your safety during training is our primary concern.
