Personal Safety in Essex
As self defence specialists in Essex, we know that self defence is not just about learning a number of physical responses to a given situation. It must incorporate psychological and emotional tools as well as the means to strike out. Conflicts encountered in daily life will each have different variables so an understanding of principles is more important then a programed response. What is needed was best expressed by Bruce Lee when he talked about the "art of fighting without fighting". Through situational awareness, the problem should be avoided. The next level is verbally defuse the situation. If the next level is reached then something has gone very wrong and we need the means to respond with efficient and effective methods to survive. The consequences of our actions will not end there and may come back to haunt us in the future so a peaceful resolution should always be our first choice of action.
The Academy provides a system of self defence that we call simply "Chosho Fighting Arts". It is not a martial art or a combat sport; it is a means of surviving the pressures of modern life, providing the mental and physical tools to live life to the full, without fear. It is taught with the intention of being used in a self defence situation and is never practiced as a sport, its fundamental roots can be found in Filipino Kali which is an art based on the use of a baton, sword or knife. It uses natural movements making it easier to learn, with fluid, graceful and efficient techniques it is suitable for the weak and the elderly.
We all need a little help now and again so whether you want to lose weight for a special occasion or you want to train to fulfil that life time ambition of running a marathon we can help.

Sports Injury Management and Rehabilitation
Have you been injured or hurt while involved in sport or at work? Frustrated that you can't train at the gym or take part in your sport? Most of us only seek professional help when we can stand it no more, sometimes weeks after the injury occurred, but after only three weeks the injury is well on its way to healing with a built in weakness that makes a recovery to full health far more difficult.
Rehabilitation must be started straight away to ensure a full recovery, don't you owe it to yourself to get expert help as soon as possible? With the proper help the injured part can actually be stronger then before it was hurt and it need not cost an arm and a leg to get there! Contact the Academy to find out how we can help.
