Simple Street Defence was created because the two founders became “disillusioned” by what was being taught or on offer

The Chief Instructor had also suffered bullying while he was at school so wanted to teach something REAL to help reduce it happening anyone that was taught

Q Are there any joining fees?

No, after 2 lessons then a student must be insured which is
£20.00 per year - Child
£25.00 per year - Adult
reduced on renewal

Q Do I have to pay monthly?

SSD is p.a.y.g, ONLY, so no paying when you or your children are ill or you're away on holiday, why should you have to pay when you're not there?

Q Do I get any free lessons?

Yes, all New Students get 2 FREE lessons

Q Do I have to sign a contract?

Absolutely not, it's meant to be a fun hobby, not trapping you into staying if you or your child doesn't like it

Q Are lessons expensive?

No, they are very reasonable, Monday is £5.50 (1 hr), Wednesday £6, (1 hr) Teens (£7.50) Adults, Friday is £7.50 (90 mins)

Q Do students get discounts for doing multiple lessons in the same week?

Yes, if students come multiple times they get a discount

Q Do you do any family discounts?

Yes, for each extra member of the family, a student has £0.50 knocked off

Q Do you give any benefits for students bringing there friends to class?

Yes, at SSD we do a "referall rewards scheme" each time a new student joins (pays insurance) the person who bought them gets rewarded, the more they bring the bigger the reward

Q When you say you teach REAL self defence, is it really usable?

Yes, Everything that is taught is "pressure tested" this means it's tested to work at real speed, this is done with simulated reality drills like "random attacks, Reality check, the circle" and many other ways for students to be tested, also students are taught to attack each other at real speed or properly grab etc

Q Do students grade?

Yes, SSD has 9 belts in the syllabus, from Red up to Black and then onwards if they request

Q What age can my child start?

We say 6+ but have had some very good 5 year olds and one is still with the club now, we normally say let them do the 2 lessons to see how they get on and go from there, the maximum age to start is realistically 13, but any students who start before 14 are still able to continue with the club after
After that then they can go to Wednesday (teen/ adults) class and continue

Q Is it suitable for girls and boys?

Absolutely, SSD has a good mix of both

Q Why else makes you different from everything else?

Everything taught is "Reasonable Force" that means a student is less likely to get in trouble using it,we don't do any punching or high kicks doing defence
we also do "Star of the month" and the games in the class are mostly created by Phil (Chief Instructor) which are fun, unique and beneficial to the students playing, games like SSD Bulldog, Gold Rush, Time bomb takedown to name a few are constantly requested by students again and again

Q How do I join?

Simple, please text, phone/ whats ap or facebook message Phil, you don't need to book in or give notice and even had one student phone up to ask if he could come 10 mins before class was scheduled to start

Q How long have you been going?

SSD4 was first taught January 13th 2008, at the time of writing we've just had our 16th birthday

Q What do you teach?

You are taught elements from Ju-Jitsu, Aikido, Brazlian Ju-Jitsu and CQC type stuff (but watered down) students learn how to fall, throw, grapple, defence against many attacks incuding attacks on the floor, escapes from almost any hold, each grade adds to the previous content, again if you're not sure what all that was then you're more than welcome to come and see what we do first
