Veritas

Latin: The Truth

Veritas evolved as a response to the increasing over-commercialization and mis-information being perpetrated within the UK self protection industry.


Principle based, simple to learn, and focusing heavily on myth-busting, Veritas challenges many pre-conceived self protection beliefs and expectations. Allowing all participants to quickly build in both competence and confidence in the techniques presented within this course, Veritas is a ‘must' for anyone wishing to learn a range of easily deployable life protection skills based on honesty, achievability and the greatest probability of success in the face of violent conflict.


Veritas presents a brutally honest approach and learning experience for both the absolute beginner wishing to learn essential skills to protect themselves and loved ones, or the experienced martial art or self defence enthusiast looking to enhance their knowledge and skill-set.


Set in rural Suffolk, the Tuddenham venue is a former World War II Lancaster Bomber base providing a range of different environmental settings for an entirely unique training experience.
