Steven Bazzea began his martial arts journey in 1972 – he has travelled to the USA, Brazil, Japan, Ireland, Spain, Slovakia, France and Italy to train with world renowned coaches.   He has been coaching in the Fish Hoek Valley since 1992 and was the first instructor to introduce Brazilian jiu-jitsu, MMA, and Filipino Kali to this area.  He is a coach under the world renowned organisation Straight Blast Gym International.   SBGi is the forerunner of Functional Martial Arts and “what works” in a physical encounter.

Self-defence as a simple concept is a method of evading a situation where there is a risk of actual danger; therefore an effective self-defence system is one that is based upon the principles of Awareness, Assessment and Action.  Awareness to maintain a constant, but relaxed vigilance. Assessment refers to the process of quickly and accurately evaluating a specific situation in which you feel at risk.  Action will refer to your strategy in dealing with the confrontation.  This may be immediate retreat, de-escalation of the confrontation or taking up self-preservation measures.

This comprehensive self-defence course covers self-preservation skills in Stand-up, Clinch, Ground and Edged Weaponry encounters.  The principles used are easy to learn and include Awareness, Assessment and Action drills.  Discussions on home security and safety in the outdoors are also covered.  This active workshop is open to teenagers and adults with two instructors conducting the class. Study notes and equipment are provided.

Our international curriculum focuses it’s training on functional training and addresses the realities of Stand-up, Clinch, Ground and Edged weaponry defence. This researched knowledge is passed on to course participants.
