HKJ - Combined Martial Arts

We are OPEN and practicing COVID-Secure training until social distancing restrictions have been lifted.

Our club specialises in teaching martial arts skills which are designed to give students of all ages the confidence to defend themselves against an attacker or when faced with an uncomfortable physical or verbal situation.

Our classes will teach you how to deal with potentially dangerous situations using proven techniques to defend, de-escalate or simply to give you the confidence to walk away.

Our classes are particularly suited to children, to help build their confidence and deal with bullying; to women, to help them feel empowered in confrontational situations and to men who simply wish to keep fit and learn new skills or to go on and compete.

Self Defence

Self Defence and Personal Street Protection Courses

Self Defence and Personal Street Protection Courses

For schools, private groups, door staff, public sector organisations or community groups, we can offer tailor made courses in self-defence including basic control and restraint techniques and conflict management.

In the past we have delivered personal safety courses to Wigan council staff. Courses are broken down into two or three 4-hour classes in which we cover the law around self-defence and reasonable force, aggression avoidance and finally breakaway and defence techniques aimed at the non-martial artist.
