Empower your team with award winning self-defense training that could save their lives during a violent criminal attack.

In Person Training Anywhere in the World

Virtual Training Via Teams or Zoom

Empower your team with practical self-defense skills tailored for today's threats. Our globally accredited instructors focus on teaching effective conflict avoidance strategies and easy-to-learn physical techniques. These skills provide knowledge and practical tools to defend against violent attacks and anti-social threats like gender-based violence.

Our award-winning self-defense training program is designed for all ages, genders, and fitness levels, ensuring everyone can feel safer. Unlike sport-based martial arts or military combat systems, C.O.B.R.A.™ Self-Defense stems directly from real-life Police & Corrections experience, addressing everyday criminal threats. With a focus on understanding criminal behavior, conflict avoidance, and physical tactics, C.O.B.R.A.™ stands as the ultimate self-defense system.

When self defense is a must, nothing else will do.
Our courses are designed to accommodate your schedule while following the same fundamental curriculum.

Your employees will cover a range of topics, including:
  • Myth Busting
  • Threat Recognition & Conflict Avoidance
  • Verbal Skills & Body Language to de-escalate situations
  • Responding to unarmed physical attacks
  • Ensuring safety during armed incidents like car hijackings, robberies, and active shooter situations
  • Using everyday items as improvised weapons
  • And much more!
Despite delving into serious subjects, we prioritize an enjoyable learning experience. Our training is structured to be informative, interactive, and entertaining, ensuring a memorable and engaging experience for your team.
All our corporate self-defense courses include complimentary access to our C.O.B.R.A. Online Training Portal. This portal allows employees to watch videos of the self-defense techniques they learned during the training and access various e-books. It serves as a convenient way for them to refresh their memories after the training, and they can also share the content with their family and friends. By providing this resource, you, as their employer, show that you not only care about your employees but also extend that care to their loved ones.

You will be investing in the safety and wellbeing of your most valuable asset - YOUR EMPLOYEES.

The skills your employees will learn will empower them for the rest of their lives. Even better, they will share their new knowledge with family and friends, meaning that your contribution empowered a wider community! Gender Based Violence is an enormous challenge in South Africa. By investing in a C.O.B.R.A.™ self-defense course, you will actively contribute towards fighting this pandemic.

 On behalf of the Organisational Development and Employee Wellness team, we would like to express our appreciation for the COBRA presentation on Self Defense. The feedback after the presentation was excellent. Your energy and enthusiasm made the presentation worth attending, and definitely will make a difference on our awareness."

 We just want to extend our gratitude for the session conducted on 14th August for our Women’s Month team building. The feedback from all Cepheid ladies has been nothing less than exceptional! Most expressed how very insightful and helpful the session was, the tips especially on the use of everyday items were some of the highlights for the day. Thank you very much Leon, please keep up the great work and continue to contribute to women empowerment!"

 Leon and the C.O.B.R.A. team facilitated numerous sessions at our company as part of a life skills and employee wellness programme. Everyone loved the sessions and besides really having fun, equipped us with the knowledge and skill to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Besides the valuable skill, they were extremely supportive of our Covid reschedule requirements."
