Self-défense Praille

Unfortunately, violence, both verbal and/or physical, is an integral part of our daily lives. One of the ways to deal with this situation is the practice of self-defence.

Self-défense Praille offers specific courses designed to provide participants with the tools they need to respond to this violence, defend themselves and make the right decisions in case of aggression.

In addition to the technical aspect, the fitness elements (in the broad sense) are also trained. The psychological approach to violence also remains at the heart of our teaching. It is intended to allow practitioners to gain self-confidence and to properly analyze conflict situations.

The technical content of the courses is mainly derived from ju-jitsu (ancestor of modern martial arts), but is also inspired by other disciplines such as e.g. krav-maga or the Russian martial art.

Classes are also ideal for practitioners seeking a complete and demanding sporting activity. In this discipline, no notion of competition intervenes, which leaves the student the freedom to evolve at his own pace and set his own goals.

The Technical Leader of Self-Défense Praille has been teaching martial arts for over 40 years. He has a black judo belt and a black belt of ju-jitsu. Former policeman, he was a member of an intervention group, expert in knives. He was also the technical manager of a club reserved for security professionals (gendarmes, policemen, customs officers) for ten years. This experience and its confrontation with the realities of the field, make him an exception in the middle of the self-defense.

The program is accessible to all without prior knowledge of martial arts. You practice in kimono, barefoot.
