United-Defence was started by one person with the goal to create a genuine and useful training regime for anybody to learn from. The world of defence and martial arts is so confusing and full of fantasy and marketing.

There are so many people out there pushing bad information and miseducating people. Real life conflict is organic and evolves along with society. This means the training must reflect the times and take into account so many factors.

Having experienced over 20 years of training as well as fighting my ground out in the real world, I have studied hard and experienced it first hand and still do every single day.

I find that the need to educate people in order for them to take care of themselves and those around them is one of the essential factors in modern life if we are to survive the major transitions.

The problem is the poor information, all martial arts and self defence training on the market today simply fail to truely deliver.

There is far too much focus on the physical and little on psychological and science. When in real combat there is a massive change in bio chemistry inside the individuals involved and the physical training must take this into account.

Always testing training methods and conflict theory we take an open minded approach and take it to its limits.

Conditioning is important as well and most places do not go into depth as a standard in a regular class. They want to make sporty soft versions of fighting. But we want people who enjoy training hard and take the pain.

When you train like this it also improves the quality of your life outside of training hours as you become more self aware, environmentally aware and able to handle stress with ease.

9 out of 10 people who start this training get hooked on it! You will learn as much about yourself as you will about others.

I am looking for people who are interested in training Hojo Undo and making our own equipment and beginning some regular classes.
