Welcome to the Self Defence Federation

This is the home of all things Self-Defence.

We are an Association that offers Membership, Licences, Insurance, Courses, Certification, Grade ratification and Seminars in Self-Defence.

We are open to individuals and clubs who have no previous experience in Self-Defence or those who run any martial arts club.

We are an association that doesn’t interfere with how you run your club or business, but are here to help if you need any advise.

We promote and teach real Street Self-Defence for the 21st Century. We also offer courses and instructor training in Self-Defence.

Our Self-Defence Instructor Diplomas are recognised with leading Insurers for those needing Instructors Indemnity Insurance.

The SDF started in 2000 and has a genuine 10th Dan at the helm in Dave Turton. The SDF is also part of ASMAA (The All Styles Martial Arts Association).
