Many businesses these days, especially those who deal with members of the public on a regular basis, may have safety concerns about members of staff being overwhelmed and verbally or physically assaulted by an aggressive member of the public and feel a duty of care toward their employees. In an ideal situation any type of work place incident will hopefully be resolved with minimal physical effort and a verbal resolution can be used.

Sometimes however these situations can escalate quickly and knowing how to react verbally and physically if needed is a key skill to have.

We can provide simple, easy to learn, time & tested techniques to help end an altercation before it starts and without use of excessive violence to end a situation in the safest mannor possible for both parties concerned. Having such a skill set can also help boost an employees confidence which can be critical when dealing with "rowdy" customers. No two businesses are the same and we'll work close with any organisation to create a custom approach to safety that is specific to their needs.

Maybe on the other hand your job requires you to have a well rounded approach to safety, self defence or control and restraint. in the past RōninFMA has trained members of the armed forces, police and door staff to help keep their skill set sharp and most importantly keep them 

safe without needing to use excessive force.

Krav-Maga was created and developed by Imi Sde-or (Lichtenfeld), Israeli Grand-master (1910-1998) who started Krav Maga in the late 1940's whilst serving as Chief Instructor for hand-to-hand combat and combat fitness training for the Israeli Defence Forces.  Krav Maga Is currently one of the worlds most popular systems of self defence, known for its simplicity and brutal effectiveness its now used by some of the world's leading security and law enforcement agencies as well as everyday civilians.

Tactical Edge is the Combatives System founded by Mark Davies.
