Event description
This workshop is for men and women of all levels of ability

About this Event

Most people are literally ‘wired’ to capitulate to sudden physical violence.

Which is why street criminals have such a high success rate

______________________________________________________________________________________________

IN THIS WORKSHOP WE WILL:

  • Re-condition your nervous system in a safe and structured way to have an ‘instant positive reaction’ to sudden assault
  • Explore and understand the biology and psychology behind this type of violence
  • Learn super simple and effective techniques that you will not have to ‘remember’ in an emergency situation
  • Responses that an attacker will not be prepared for
  • Understand how this training actually prevents you being targeted by criminals in the first place

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Most people have an intuitive feeling that they wouldn’t know what to do in a violence situation.

The mistake they make is seeking a solution by ‘learning techniques’

“If I only knew some simple self-defence techniques”

While technical knowledge and skill is important, this is rendered useless if the NERVOUS SYSTEM is not properly conditioned to respond appropriately.

The feeling of unease that people have isn’t because they don’t have the right knowledge, it’s because they don’t have the right ‘wiring’.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

THE TRUTH

The truth is that in when suffering from an acute stress response (‘fight or flight’), the thinking part of the brain near enough shuts down completely, leaving only your automatic and involuntary responses.

Overriding these responses in the moment is next to impossible.

The solution is to re-condition the nervous system’s responses beforehand.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

I learned this the hard way, through finding myself in a situation that I was completely unprepared for despite several years of traditional martial arts training at the time.

I now use simple but profound methods of re-conditioning to take my students from vulnerable to capable in the shortest time possible.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

IN THIS WORKSHOP...

  • Exploring and understanding the ‘OODA Loop’
  • The science psychology behind how victims are selected by street criminals
  • How to turn the tables in a sudden violent assault
  • Concepts that are actually tactically identical to standard military counter-ambush tactics

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS:

Emma *****

"Thank you Sharif so much for yesterday. Having suppressed my fight response for many years, this workshop was deeply a transformational experience. You held such a safe space and gave some much needed permission for me to embrace and express a very clear NO through my body. I very much appreciate how your approach is trauma informed and will highly recommend your work to others"

Rachel *****

"Amazing self-defense workshop! It far exceeded any expectations that I had. The lens through which Sharif looks at self-defense, and how he combines it with self-development work, is really unique and amazing. After only a 3-hour workshop, I feel so much more confident about my ability to defend myself if I should ever need to."

Aya *****

"I loved Sharif's self defence workshop. I found it really empowering, and I had a lot of fun exploring this part of myself. It definitely helped me to connect to my inner strength and I felt a lot more confident and grounded in myself afterwards. Sharif is a great teacher who is very warm and friendly, with a lot of knowledge and embodies what he teaches. I can't recommend him and his workshops enough."

Nick *****

"Great trainer. Challenging yet compassionate. Sharif has a balanced yin and yang energy. His former military experience really shows in his knowledge. His teaching is applicable and anyone of any fitness level can learn his OP3 system. Would definitely recommend!"
