About Us

Michael Cooper, our head instructor, 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 found the most effective style that will actually work in real life is Krav Maga. It has been proven time and time again to work, even under highly stressful situations.

The Krav Maga system was designed many decades ago by taking techniques that work from many different styles and putting them together to form Krav Maga.

Learning self defence not only gives you confidence and 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 lesson 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. Training is also available at our gym at Mortlake.

Our main focus is Krav Maga but can offer other services too.
