COBRA 10-Week Self-Defense Course
I received my certificate
I suffer from Anxiety but today this training made me have a different way of how to handle myself. God help those who can help themselves.
Karate, it is not just a sport, it is a way of life....
One day course underway.....
I attended the One Day Survival Course today. And it was a great experience. Having Karate experience for 25 years, I still learned a lot this morning. We are trained in a set up scenario, and self defense is made up of a uncontrolled, element of surprise scenario. This course comes highly recommended for Men and Woman. Thank you Jarques Müller for the great course. It is presented in such a way that everyone can understand and execute the movements.

COBRA Self-Defense Academy was again the first option to provide a self-defense course for the Afriforum Neighbourhood Watch.
Some of the members have attended our 10-Week Self-Defense course and 1-day courses. They understand the importance of continuous training because they patrol the streets that are sometimes dangerous

This group is an example to all other neighbourhood watch groups.
Neighbourhood watch groups are voluntary joined and they work hard to ensure safe neighbourhoods.

Great feedback were shared on their experience when patrolling and how our COBRA Self-Defense programme helped them to stay safe and alert.

"I attended your self-defense class at SPAR DC in the capacity as a photographer for SPAR a month ago. Fortunately, I was paying attention while you were running the workshop. A few days later I was attacked while cycling by a “person” with a knife. I immediately knew that he was going to stab me as there were no verbal threats, he simply started stabbing. I instinctively went onto my back, and every time he leaned over to stab me, I used my legs to kick him away. I managed to get hold of my phone and threw it in the opposite direction as a decoy and he fortunately fell for it which gave me the 5 seconds to get on my bike and get away. Until then I had not noticed that he had 3 accomplices with him that were now approaching me, fortunately a waste removal truck appeared, and they then ran. I suffered 4 stab wounds to my legs, two in my left calf, one on my right ankle and one above my right knee. I have no doubt if I had not got onto my back, he would have stabbed me in my body. Thanks to JP’s workshop, when he went through the exercise of getting onto your back, it made so much sense to me. I have just come off all my medication and I have almost physically healed.
Thanks to JP and SPAR, if I had not been at that workshop, I am sure I would not have come off so lightly under the circumstances."

Another great Self-Defense Survival Camp we did today with this awesome group.


This awesome group of youngsters attended our One Day Survival Camp for Kids. Great to see that their church took the initiative to empower their loved ones not to become a statistic of crime.


Yesterday these awesome youngsters attended our TeenSafe Self-Defense Survival Camp.


Friday evening we started with our Academy #9 10 Week Self-Defense course with this awesome group. Hard work ahead.


Today we had awesome turnout for our self-defense camp for kids. Self-Defense is an important life skill every child must learn. Self-Defense does not get taught in school and only 5% of parents in the community will walk the extra mile for their children not to become a target for another crime statictic.


It is a proven fact that only about 5% of our community will ever invest in their own lives to empower themselves to be able to prevent to become a crime statistic. The rest will just complain or be so naive that crime only happens to others. The 2019 Rugby World Cup kicked off yesterday and today SA vs NZ played against each other but this group of people made the decision that their lives are more important, they attended our self-defense training camp for adults to empower themselves and fight back to our current high crime environment. 💪💪👊👊


We had again a great self-defense seminar at Barloworld Equipment.


We recently done two self-defense seminars at Barloworld Equipment. Third one has been confirmed and booked. 💪💪
