About Us

Michael Cooper, head instructor at Command Self Defence in Sydney's Inner West, has been training martial arts for many years. He has dedicated 100% of his time in the last several years to train and study multiple martial arts.

After years of training martial arts, Michael has designed a system/program that will actually work in real life. It has been proven time and time again to work, even under highly stressful situations.

The most effective way to protect yourself is to learn self defence techniques and master them. This can only be done with regular training.

The CSD System/Program was designed by our head instructor by taking techniques that work from many different styles and putting them together to form The CSD System.

Learning self defence not only gives you confidence in the ability to protect yourself and your loved ones but can also have huge benefits towards your health.

Here at Command Self Defence, we can tailor private lessons to suit your required needs. From one-off lessons to regular weekly private lessons, talk to us and we can discuss what suits you. We can also train the entire family at the same time.

We come to you so you can train in the privacy of your own home or if that doesn’t work we can train in your local park.

All our instructors are fully covid vaccinated.
