Intelligent, practical martial art designed purely for self defence
Animis opibusque parati – Prepared in minds and resources (ready for anything).
KAPAP is not a sports based or traditional martial art, it’s classed as a “combative” and is designed purely for the application of self defence, whether you’re a housewife, door supervisor, police officer or military forces.
We specialise in teaching awareness skills, conflict management, defending against edged weapons, heavy impact weapons, firearms, multiple attackers and street grappling.
Self defence and the misconception that training is all about learning the best way to hurt people
Myself and fellow KAPAP UK instructors have spent most of their adult life dealing with violent and aggressive people, learning that an aggressive response is often likely to exacerbate the problem rather than dilute it. We approach self defence training differently, teaching a system based on recognising and evaluating the threat, avoiding it if possible and where it fails, implementing the appropriate response.
