You can literally walk through them and stop the attack.

Vital Street Effective Self Defence Principles

We arm ourselves with over 300 training principles and over 200 striking points.

Many of them are Kyusho pressure points.

I’ve taught these unique training drills and skills to the British Army, Police, Security and Special Forces.

Don’t Ever Give Up

Combat Self Defence training inspires you to never give up.

There’s no such thing as an un-injured soldier.

Shihan Martin Day served in the British Army for over 20 years.

Dealing with PTSD and physical injuries could have stopped him doing what his life purpose is.

Shortly after leaving the Army In 1994 after he underwent a final medical review before entering civilian life he was informed by his Doctor and by specialists that due to the debilitating nature of his injuries caused by his army service, he would probably be confined to a wheelchair within a couple of years.

So, what did he do?

What would you do?

Well, he decided to never give up and continued to train hard and build his mind and body stronger than it already was.

The result is what you see when he teaches.

He trains every day through the pain and hardly ever takes medication.

We sincerely hope that if you or your family and friends have injuries and health challenges then what you have read about Martin inspires you to keep going.

As Eckhart Tolle says:

“Non-surrender hardens your psychological form, the shell of the ego and so creates a strong sense of separateness.”

The mind can be either very limiting, or very enabling.

He has taught soldiers, civilians, police, security guards, women’s’ groups, schools, colleges, boxers and martial artists from various combat and fighting arts, and continues to do so with the passion of when he first started out in training all those years ago.
