Self Defence - Weapons
Why train with Escrima Concepts?
We teach a fun martial art for adults, that uses weapons, unarmed and more.
Don’t worry if you have never done any kind of martial art, we have friendly patient instructors who will teach you from scratch.
If you are already an experienced martial artist looking for a new challenge, we would love to see you too. We welcome anyone who is willing to learn and train.
Do you need to be fit to start doing Escrima Concepts?
Not at all, but you will get “fighting fit” as a result of training with us. Your balance and co-ordination will also improve.
Is it expensive to get started?
Nope! We want to get you training as soon as possible. The only upfront cost we ask for is your insurance, which is £30 for the year. After that, you can pay as you train. There are no contracts, you may leave at any time.
Where are the classes?
We have two locations on two nights per week.
Monday 6.30pm to 8pm, at WAW (World Association of Wrestling), 3a Diamond Road, Norwich.
Wednesday 7pm to 8.30pm at The Phoenix Hub, Mile Cross Road, Norwich.
There’s no uniform required. Just turn up in loose comfortable clothing and (clean) indoor trainers.
Why train with weapons?
Training with weapons will improve your strength, timing, and co-ordination, making you stronger, faster, and fitter, and we’ll show you how the body mechanics behind the weapons transition to the unarmed, enhancing your abilities when you are unarmed and empty handed.
We will also show you what works, and what doesn’t when it comes to protecting yourself against an armed attacker, and highlight the common mistakes that are made with weapons defence.
Aren’t weapons dangerous?
Safety is our top priority and as a beginner we will teach you the basics of movement, structure and footwork, with no speed or power. As time goes on, you will progress in a controlled method so you can train safely without injuring yourself or your training partner.
Escrima Concepts Norwich has been open since 2013 and all of our students are still in one piece!
