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.

Programmable options:

  1. General self-defense classes (not part of Liikan Jitsu Club ry), no gradings (exams), just self-defense training in a regular keep-fit club type of format.

    Club Training & Classes 

    1. Physical Education Classes (koulu liikuntatunteja)

      Specialist P.E. Lessons with a focus on self-defense combined with mobility training in the form of basic Break-Dancing and pure Parkour and more... 


    2. Afternoon School Classes (iltapäivä kerhoja)

      After school classes have finished are your kids left to wander around the streets, getting into mischief whilst lost and looking for something to do?

      A new programme for a new season, including 'self-preservation' (self-defense and mobility) classes for School Kids at a loose end in the afternoons.

      Liikan self-defense classes may be just the thing to keep them out of trouble, learn some useful 'Life Skills' and even develop their English language skills and confidence in using it at the same time.


    3. Vital point training, known as Kyusho. Practiced as part of a licensed study group programme with Kyushu International. Please see our KI introduction page >>

    4. Skills Circuit Training - Fitness circuit training based on martial skills training exercises. Classes may be arranged for unarmed or armed techniques and skills.

    5. Boxercise / Kick-boxercise – Martial aerobic training


  2. Tailored self-defense and personal security management training.

    1. Women only self-defense classes or general training based on the A.A.R.M. courses but with more physical techniques and skills content. 

    2. Educational classes and seminars for schools and other interest groups seeking introductions and further information about the martial arts and Liikan Jitsu in particular. Classes may be tailored as part of a broader Life Skills programme as required.

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.

This extensive theoretical and technical training background is supported by several years practical experience working as a qualified security supervisor (including door supervision) at bars, restaurants, hotels, exhibition centres, sports and music events, and as a security guard in the retail sector. Qualifications include the 'järjestyksenvalvoja' (security supervisor) and 'vartija' (guard) qualifications with use of force rights, including cuffs, baton, pepper spray and telescopic baton. Other qualifications include the Certified Protection Officer certification by the IFPO (International Foundation for Protection Officers).

More information about Liikan Jitsu can be found from their homepages or from facebook, Eventbrite or Meetup.com.

Capability 1
Extensive theoretical and technical knowledge of self-defense way beyond the simplistic  quick-fix systems that so often abound today.
Capability 2
Practical real life experience of work-place violence and conflict management. 
Capability 3
A comprehensive understanding of the wider framework, the practical, theoretical and legal aspects which go to make up personal security management in general. This is supported by the ability to integrate and clearly explain the physical and psychological skills, verbal and non-verbal.
