DART – Defence Attack & Resolution Tactics
DART is a legally underpinned modern Karate system developed for self defence. We teach people how to avoid, deter, negate and escape verbal aggression, abuse and physical violence. Our secondary aim is to help people improve their health through exercises that work mobility, agility, co-ordination and concentration.
DART gives you expert personal safety advice with world-class classes and Britain’s best self defence scenario simulation training. Enthusiastic and experienced Karate instructors teach our lessons, including international self protection coach and author John Titchen.
Our regular classes in High Wycombe are for adults and teenagers and focus on drilling against realistic attacks. Because of this DART Karate includes a broad range of stand up and ground skills. We also teach pressure tested edged weapon defences. In class we mainly focus on paired sparring and pad work.
We know that true self protection is avoiding using force in self defence in the first place, so personal safety advice for daily life runs throughout our training.

We wear Black Ju Jitsu suits in most classes with jackets because they resemble coats and school blazers.
