My daughter attended the 1 day self-defense course and she is super empowered! I can recommend this for ALL woman (especially students); she was attacked on campus recently and if she knew the stuff she knows now, the situation would definitely have a different outcome!For the first time in her life my daughter feels truly empowered and cannot stop talking about her experience. Thank you for your positive and practical presentation-I believe that if you made a difference in one girl’s life and helped her to save herself in a situation in the future, it was a success. Again, thank you very very much. Letitia Reyneke, Parent of University Student.

The feedback after the presentation was excellent. Your energy and enthusiasm made the presentation worth attending, and definitely will make a difference on our awareness.

Leon Myburgh is an established self-defense expert instructor. Anyone who has the chance to train with him and his team will not only learn life-saving self-defense skills, but they will enjoy the process. Highly recommended. John Graden, Martial Arts Teachers Association.
Great experience. Learned a lot not just about how to defend yourself physically but also on what decisions to take in certain situations especially on when to fight and when not to fight. I would recommend it for everyone not just women. Beandre Venter, 1 Day Course Graduate, Bloemfontein.

Vanoggend was ek en Dané daar, hierdie is die “real deal”! Geen tydmors of snaakse bewegings en goed nie, reguit op die punt af, selfvedediging. Persoonlike tyd en aandag is aan ons gegee en ek is baie in my skik, niks hier geleer wat net vir die mooigeit is nie, alles op die man af om jou lewe te red. Dankie Leon en Jollie, ons sien julle weer. Jacques Breed, 1 Day Course Graduate, Bloemfontein.
Excellent course. Highly recommended!!! Beate Lindeque, 10 Week Academy Graduate, Bloemfontein.
Ons het die 10 week opleiding in 3 dae gedoen, omdat ons van ver kom. Daar was oorgenoeg tyd vir inoefen en vir die verfyning van die tegniek. Ons is bemagtig met tegnieke wat op meer as een aanval gebruik kan word en dit maak dit makliker om te onthou. Ek is so dankbaar dat ek die belegging in my lewe gemaak het en sal dit vir almal aanbeveel. 5*e vir julle! Karien du Plessies, 10 Week Academy Graduate, Bloemfontein.
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. Pearl Mokhahlane, 10 Week Academy Graduate, Bloemfontein.
Enjoyed small groups, personal attention and motivation. Safe environment to make mistakes and correct them. Scenario training is intense and very real. Teaching mentality and not only technique. 5 Stars! 5 Stars! 5 Stars! This is an investment you owe yourself. I would say that your self-care is not complete without self-defense training at Cobra. The instructors are equipped and attentive to individual needs. Course content is 10/10. Instructors 10 Stars! Well done. Thank You! Ilana Serfontein, 10 Week Academy Graduate, Bloemfontein.
Enjoyed everything! Engaging style, non threatening environment, free to ask questions. Pushing the limits when necessary.Course content is 10/10. Instructors 20/10!!!! Yolandi Swart, 10 Week Academy Graduate, Bloemfontein.

One of our Armed Response Officers who attended the C.O.B.R.A. Protection Specialist Self-Defense Course responded to an incident. Upon arrival the Response Officer was confronted by an aggressive male suspect and a physical scuffle ensued during which the Response Officer dropped his firearm. Upon reviewing the video footage of the incident I noticed how the C.O.B.R.A. training kicked in and the Response Officer managed to subdue the suspect and recover his firearm. Â I highly recommend C.O.B.R.A. Self-Defense South Africa. Christiaan Muller, CEO, Vetus Schola Protection Services.
I joined Cobra Fighting Systems, because I was looking for a self defense system that would actually work in real life situations. Where your attackers are armed with guns and knives and could not care less about your life. This far the Cobra Fighting Systems has not only met this high expectation above but has surpassed it. In only a few classes, we have not only learned the physical know how on what to do to protect ourselves during an attack. But the system has also taught us on how to prevent being a victim in the first place. I highly recommend the Cobra Fighting System to any one that would want to learn effective self defense for real world situations. That is taught by passionate and knowledgeable instructors in an interactive and fun class environment. Where quality training is given to each person to ensure that you would be able to defend yourself. Terry 36 (Bloemfontein).
After completing two one day courses and a five week course I enrolled for weekly COBRA classes. I started COBRA to ensure I can protect myself and after being assaulted by a co-worker. This system has definitely proved to be highly effective.The instructors are very friendly and helpful creating a supporting energy in a positive environment. Paying attention to small details which reassure you of their knowledge of the program and commitment to helping you. Join COBRA now so you can gain the confidence and knowledge to defend yourself. This is a system applicable to anyone which helps overcome personal barriers as well. V.Z. (Bloemfontein).
I am a former member of the South African Police Special Task Force and trained in specialized functions such as anti-hostage situations. The C.O.B.R.A. course is an excellent course and I loved the way the instructor presented the course material. My specialized police training was mostly focused on offensive techniques but here I also learned to focus on defensive techniques. My wife definitely needs to attend the next 5 Week Academy.
