Allowing children to evolve with confidence

Evolve classes aim to:

  • Build confidence

  • Develop self-discipline and respect for others

  • Improve fitness, strength, flexibility and co-ordination

  • Empower children to defend themselves against danger and conflict.

Evolve is a Southampton-based Self Defence club for Kids and Teens, designed to teach 5 - 16 year olds how to defend themselves and others, whilst having fun at our weekly energetic classes. We offer realistic self-defence training to children, in which they will experience a mashup of concepts from key martial arts disciplines including Krav Maga, Filipino Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Thai Boxing, and be given guidance on how to apply them to real-life situations by an experienced instructor. 

An introduction to Self Defence, young children will learn a number of basic techniques through play and games, without being unnecessarily alerted to the potential dangers in the wider world.

Practical self defence training for teens, teaching them to defend themselves and others, equip them with skills to avoid and face situations of conflict in everyday life, at school or on the street.
