Veritas 2016

Veritas: Latin  - "The Truth"

Veritas 2016 evolved as a response to increasing over-commercialization and mis-information being perpetrated within the UK self protection industry.

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.
Focusing heavily on myth-busting, this course challenges many pre-conceived self protection beliefs.
Principle based, simple to learn, and allowing all participants to quickly build both competence and confidence in the techniques presented over the two days, Veritas 2016 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 2016 presents a no nonsense approach and brutally honest 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.

Welcome to Veritas 2016...
