The objective of the “Académie Des Arts de Combat” is to teach its members to prevent violent acts and confront them when appropriate. It is from this perspective that self-defence methods have been developped and adapted to a large audience.
It was soon realized that efficient self-defence was not only a question of physical training but also a matter of mental well being, acquisition of skills and experience of realistic conflictual situations.
Given this objective, the teaching staff has developed specific training to share with you the experience of a unique self-defence method.
