The System

Eclectic Self Protection (ESP) was founded on streamlined principles to offer an explosive, dynamic and reality self defence system that enhanced the traditional martial arts, but still maintained grace, discipline and grading structure.

Eclectic Self Protection (ESP) is not restriced to a particular art / style or system name other than ‘Eclectic’ for mixed or integrated and ‘self protection’ today’s more newer and refined term for self defence. ESP utilises a endless and boundless syllabus setting you on a path of discovery that will permutate the mind and body making techniques become automatic.

Hackney Corporate Self Defence Seminar 8th Nov 2019 (ESPA)
After a brief chat and catch up with the crew we kicked straight off into the session with a low to moderate warm up and static stretch sequence. ESP Coach structured the session slightly different to the usual coporate classes in accordance with what the students wanted to learn. ESP Coach took the students through the most efficient and best choke namely the Rear Naked Choke (RNC).
