1. There is no such a thing as Mens Self Defense and Women's Self Defense. There is only SELF DEFENSE!
Yes we are guilty of making two separate pages for men and women's self defense lessons, the ONLY reason we do this is for SEO (search engine optimisation - Google search results). There is NO DIFFERENCE in self defense for both women and men, it's either a proven method of self defense training that can be effective for anyone, of any ability, in any situation, or it's not. Sure we train men a little rougher in our classes, buts that only because they are generally physically bigger and stronger that the women who sign up for our beginners self defense lessons, and yes we focus on sexual assault scenarios more with women, but the method of self defense we practice is ONE SYSTEM for both men and women, a proven system of hand to hand and weapons self defense as used by law enforcement and military personal today across the world and ever since World War II (Defendu).
2. Self Defence or Self Defense?
We believe it should be spelled DEFENCE in Cyprus (British English) not DEFENSE (American English), but again we realise from our Google analytics that most people in Cyprus are using American English keyboards and spell checkers, so for the benefit of Google search results we are using DEFENSE a lot of the time on our website.
2. The images on our website are taken during actual high intensity self defense training.
After nearly a decade of training hundreds of clients in reality self defense and street MMA in Cyprus, we have an endless supply of real training images to give you a genuine representation of the realistic training that we offer.
Frequently asked questions about V1 FITNESS men's self defense lessons.
- Are you teaching Krav Maga? NO, my background is U.K. mixed martial arts and a modern day form of Defendu. Defendu existed decades before Krav Maga, it was the first modern form of combative military kill or be killed fighting system taught to British elite special forces during World War 11 and is still being taught today to military and police.
- How long will it take to learn self defense? It all depends on you and how serious you are about self defense training. Self defense is not something you learn once and forget about until you face an actual life and death situation, it's more a way of life that should be practised every week, all year, every year. We can give you everything you need to know in 10 lessons, but if you don't continue to practice on your own, with a partner or at other self defense systems, when it comes to you actually needing self defense, you will most likely freeze with fear and adrenaline and do NOTHING. This is the reality of self defense.
