Blossom Self Defence originally started years ago when founder Madeline France set up a woman’s only self-defence class following a large request of women wanting to learn how to defend themselves but weren’t interested in martial arts or combat style class.
So what’s different about Blossom?
This is not a scary, intimidating class filled with frightening people – it’s a safe and inclusive environment where people of all ages and abilities are welcomed to learn and develop their skills.
The majority of self-defence classes are run in a martial arts environment using complex and tricky techniques, but Blossom train using a medically certified techniques. They also follow a legal framework which focuses on providing a strong understanding of the legal framework that supports the use of force.
We caught up with Rachael Allen from Blossom Training, and she said:
“At Blossom our training content has been built based on personal experience, our success comes from our desire to influence change and promote positive outcomes through effective self defence education and training.
“We offer half day or full day one off courses, either direct to the public or via group booking.
“The courses are designed to have maximum impact and help build confidence, resilience, mental and physical courage and leave you feeling more empowered.
“Our course is completely unique, with a mixture of theory and physical techniques, and here at Blossom we do not encourage combat but instead teach breakaway and disengagement techniques, which allow for space and time to react appropriately, either calling for help or escaping the situation.
“Since we established in August 2021, we have taught over 80 delegates who have all rated us 5 stars on their reviews. If you want to feel more confident or you’d like your teams or user base to be more confident, come and spend the day with us and we guarantee you will leave us ready to take on any challenge life may throw at you.”
