About C.O.B.R.A. Self-Defense South Africa

C.O.B.R.A. Self-Defense Systems was developed in the United States by a former Police Officer, Maximum Security Corrections Officer and Black Belt Martial Artist.

C.O.B.R.A. Self-Defense Systems is based on United States Police tactics and is a highly effective yet easy to learn system that anyone can do, regardless of gender, age or fitness level. The system is based on techniques developed especially for self-defense and not for combat sports.

C.O.B.R.A. is a unique self-defense system in that it not only teaches students how to defend themselves at all cost, but also how to avoid becoming a victim in the first place by understanding how criminals select their victims, how criminals think and plan their attacks, aspects the criminal always have control over, strategies the student can implement to combat that advantage criminals have, recognizing the pre-indicators of an attack and how to avoid conflict.

Not all attacks can be avoided and it is thus essential that students master highly effective yet easy to learn physical self-defense techniques. Experience has shown that complicated techniques are often forgotten during an attack as a result of the pri censoredfear experienced by a victim during an attack. We teach our students through scenario based training to function through pri censoredfear. Students face an "attacker" wearing a padded suit in a range of simulated scenarios and must apply the conflict avoidance and physical techniques under duress. This prepares our students to instinctively apply what they have learned during a real life attack and not freeze up. Students are taught how to defend themselves against unarmed attackers as well as to defend themselves against attackers armed with knives, fire-arms and other weapons. The use of everyday items as weapons, anti-abduction techniques and how to deal with active shooter situations are also covered.

C.O.B.R.A. is part of an international brand. C.O.B.R.A. Self- Defense South Africa is based in Bloemfontein and is currently the only accredited C.O.B.R.A. training facility in South Africa.
