Travel safe during your gap year or summer break

Self defence and personal safety for students whilst travelling abroad

Are you a student and thinking of travelling abroad this summer or going on your gap year? If so, Combat Academy’s Self Defence Award builds tremendous life-skills, confidence, awareness and ultimately self defence skills should the need arise. The course is designed to provide awareness and avoidance skills as a first line of attack, The second line is the use of verbal commands and body language to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations and the final approach is self defence training that is among the best in the world.

Combat Academy is headed up by Major (Retired) Huw Roberts, formerly of the Royal Military Police, close protection unit. He comments:

Combat Academy’s approach is realistic, responsible, it works and it is tremendous fun for students. The system is currently growing like wildfire across the UK and Combat Academy is teaching youth programmes, women’s self defence, anti-bullying courses and even high-end close protection and security courses. With recent tragic events in the world relating to students travelling on their gap years, summer breaks or as part of placements, universities have a responsibility to ensure that students are prepared and safe. This is where Combat Academy can help!
