Safety = first priority
People ask: “What style is the most effective way of self-defense?” Edwin Baas says: “There are no effective or useless fighting styles but only people who practice their combat method in an effective or worthless way. Purely an individual matter. The name of the style/system is completely irrelevant, because fighting is and remains what it is and that is fighting. Nothing more and nothing less. A name is just a name. The effectiveness depends on the practitioner. No system/style will give you magical powers. As a practitioner, you have to shape it yourself.”
Baas don’t want to give people a false sense of security and only consistent and disciplined training leads to muscle memory. Training once, just a few tricks for in case of emergency, will no be enough. Every attacker and every situation is different, so there is never a 100% guarantee that a defense will work or succeed. The more you train, the better prepared you are.
Next to the strictly physical self-defense training, we also provide aggression management training, which covers both theory and practice. This training also focuses on prevention and dealing with verbal aggression.
