Personal Security Training
Professional self-defense and personal security management training for those who want personalized coaching tailored to their needs, without the restriction of attending and conforming to a regular self-defense training club or classical training system.
Training can be geared to general self-defense or to personal security management in specific situations such as an up-coming business trip or event in which training content and application needs to be 'localised' through research and study of the local environment in which the client will be operating.
Basic training may conducted in a purpose built training environment or include outdoors and situational on-site training as required or facilities are available. Kyusho (vital point) training is restricted to private indoor training facilities for security and safety purposes.
All of the programmes listed below are based on a deep knowledge of martial arts training, both in terms of combative techniques, health and fitness training. In particular the training draws on the style of Liikan Jitsu, currently practiced at the Liikan Jitsu Club ry. For effective and realistic training in a modern school for modern day society, Liikan Jitsu is hard to beat.
Classes and programmes can be developed to suit different student levels of fitness and capability, though most exercises are already self-regulating. An integrated programme can also be devised.
The chief instructor officially holds a third dan black belt in Liikan Jitsu, but has been training in the arts since 1983. He has founded, taught and managed three clubs since 1987, 2 in the U.K. and 1 in Finland. He also trains in traditional Japanese weapons and leads an official Kyusho study group licensed by Kyusho International.
Liikan Jitsu is a hybrid system that began to develop on an independent basis in 1995 after emigrating to Finland. Its original forerunner, the Shorinji Kekpo Karate system was developed in early 19th century Japan by the head of the Tokyo police force at that time. The modern day Liikan system is still founded on Japanese Ju Jutsu, but also draws on many aspects of Chinese Kung Fu (E.g. Tai Chi, TKD, Wing Chun, Praying Mantis etc.), Kali-Escrima-Silat, Kyusho and traditional Japanese weapon systems. The system includes the study of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, sports and applied business psychology along with modern day criminology, security and risk management, in which, the instructor holds an M.Sc. in security and risk management. The A.A.R.M. courses are a direct result of these broad studies.
Liikan is currently practiced in conjunction with the Helsinki Kyusho Study Group under the auspices of Kyusho International the world's foremost experts in the field of pressure / vital points for martial arts and health. Kyusho International boasts its own impressive on-line learning programme, the link to which can also be found on the top right 'Affiliations' navigational pane of these pages.
