Whilst a grading is not going to save you if you are attacked, it does give you structure and direction to your training. We award our students as they hit certain levels of competence and skill. This way they can track how well they are doing and where they need to improve.
We have regular seminars with world class instructors such as Bob Breen, Phil Norman, Mo Teague and others, who visit CDA to pass on their unique skills and training practices.
Students get to train with the best around in the comfort of their own club. Check out our seminars.
If you want to progress your training fast then 1:1 tuition will enable you to do that. We can focus on where you need support and fine tune the training you receive in class. 1:1's can be arranged to meet your needs. Find out more
AWARENESS- AVOIDANCE- ACTION- AFTERMATH
CONCEPT DRIVEN TRAINING
Whilst we do train specific techniques, we generally have a concept driven approach to our self defence training. We study the process of violence, how and why it occurs, where and what it looks and feels like. We then look at high probability scenarios and seek to have reliable and repeatable strategies to address these problems through all levels and ranges.
We aim to build confidence and capability in our students to be aware of dangers, assess them, avoid them, or action them.
THE BIGGER THEY COME THE HARDER THEY FALL!
TRAINING FOR THE EVERYMAN, OR WOMAN.
Bullies and criminals pick on those smaller than them or who they think are weak. Training in martial arts gives everyone the confidence and strategies to manage and avoid those situations. We welcome anybody no matter what skill, size or shape to come and train with us.
We are not about winning competitions or beating people up, although being able to do so is useful. We want to give a full understanding of what is involved emotionally, physically, mentally and even spiritually when it comes to dealing with violence.
Whether it is FUN, FITNESS or FIGHTING, we've got your back!
Our Street MMA programme offers realistic and practical skills, tactics and strategies to keep you and your loved ones safe.
If you want to learn how to look after yourself and stay safe then this is the class for you.
BOB BREENS 4D COMBAT
LEARN THE DEVISTATING SKILLS OF JKD & KALI
Combined Defensive Arts is proud to be a 4d Combat Affiliate club.
4D Combat was developed from the two amazing arts of Jeet Kune Do (JKD) and Kali. JKD, developed by Bruce Lee, is in many ways the original MMA of the modern era, whereas Kali is the ancient warrior art of the Philippines. Both are amazing arts but how do you master both of these in one lifetime?
Bob wanted to create a simpler model; something that would work for normal people yet have all the depth of the arts from which it was derived.
His aim was to keep the art, but prioritise the function. He made the decision that 4D Combat would concentrate on stand up fighting - where all fights start and most end.
Therefore in 4D Combat, the same game formats or templates are used, whatever you’re doing. This makes you faster, both mentally and structurally. “Whilst they’re deliberating, you’re obliterating.

We develop fast and powerful striking techniques through pad drills, partner work and sparring.
We take self defence techniques from Thai, Filipino, Chinese and Western boxing as well as many different knees and kicks from these and other Martial arts
