DART – Defence Attack & Resolution Tactics
DART is a legally underpinned modern training system developed for self defence. Our focus is teaching people how to avoid, deter, negate and escape verbal aggression and physical violence.
DART will give you expert personal safety advice and world class physical classes and Britain’s best self defence scenario simulation training. Enthusiastic and experienced instructors teach our classes, including international coach John Titchen.
We recognise that true self protection is avoiding using force in self defence in the first place, so running throughout our training and syllabus are personal safety advice and strategies.
Our regular training in High Wycombe focuses on drilling against habitual acts of violence (HAOV) so DART Karate classes include a broad range of stand up and ground skills. We also teach pressure tested edged weapon defences (with rubber blades or felt pens) for our intermediate and advanced students.
We believe in learning through play in dynamic and alive training. Expand your comfort zone!
We wear Brazilian Ju Jitsu suits in most classes as our jackets are designed to last and also double for coats and school blazers. Progression through our syllabus is marked by coloured belts.
There is no false machismo and we make no exaggerated claims, but we will give you high quality training designed and tested to keep you safe and healthy.
DART classes are open to adults and teenagers (with a mature attitude to training) and all genders are welcome. Our aim is to make you better, regardless of your fitness or skill level. You can get fitter and healthier with us and DART physical training can be used as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
We are running contact training under our Covid procedures for our members.
