Family week and corporate/group talks at Defence Lab Lincoln

Family week is nearly approaching at Defence Lab Lincoln!

Fancy seeing what your kids get up to at Defence Lab Lincoln? Come and give it a try the week beginning the 17th June 2017. You’ll have some quality bonding time with your child, bopping them on the head with a pair of pads and also get to see what they get up to every Tuesday and Thursday with us!

This is open to all Defence Lab members including our beginners courses, so for all those mums, dads and grandparents who sit on the side watching their kids, time to hop on the mats for the week!

Audience participation is encouraged and we’ll have some fun and games in all our classes so get ready!!

Could your group or business benefit from a personal safety talk by Defence Lab Lincoln? We offer corporate and group talks in our personal safety evenings! A short, but fun presentation on self protection including awareness, personal safety, physiology and psychology of self defence and the law. Followed by some fun with the pads!

We can come to your group for the evening and provide everything, so if your group, business, brownie group or women’s institute for example, could benefit, get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do! Below is a short testimonial from the last event we did with a lovely bunch of ladies ranging in ages from 5 to 90!!

“As someone who is always a bit nervous when it starts to get dark I loved the tips and techniques Defence Lab taught us at our self- defence evening.

I feel much more confident out driving at night and walking, and I am pretty sure I could defend myself pretty well if I ever needed to now.

Dan gave us an awesome talk and even showed us the techniques on each other (our ladies thought that was hilarious!).

He was very polite and engaging, making every person at our session feel like they could do it! Everyone enjoyed it from our littlest person up to our older ladies. Thank you for a fabulous evening and for making it so easy to book! Super helpful, we will be using Defence lab again in the future!!”

Personal safety is something everyone should at least know a little about and we aim to make it as fun and enjoyable an evening/day as possible so let us know if you’d like to get us booked in for a fun and informative session with Defence Lab Lincoln.

Defence Lab Lincoln Testimonial – Sam Snell

Hey there my name is Sam, I’ve been doing Defence Lab since beginning of January 2017.

I saw a post on one of my local Facebook pages about Defence Lab so I decided to check it out. To start with I was attracted to the black and green colours then when I watched a couple of videos I found the whole thing interesting. So I contacted Dan for some more information and found out that he was doing a month free training so I thought why not give it a go!

I’d done Karate and Taekwondo when I was a child but had to stop due to a unfortunate accident. For a while I’ve been looking into doing martial arts/ similar type sports to build up my fitness. I have a young child who has so much energy that I find it hard to keep up as I’m a bit unfit.

So anyway, I tried my first day with Dan, I met a lot of great people who now are friends, and haven’t looked back. It was confusing to start with but after the first month it got easier and I loved going. I only went once a week as I worked on Tuesdays so couldn’t do both and yet I felt like I needed more sessions so had to keep going back.

My husband joined a couple of months later and he hasn’t looked back either. Even our son is going to start fully once he’s old enough. I now go twice a week sometimes more if I go to the Redford ones or Dan has seminars on.

I’ve lost around a stone in weight, my fitness has increased, I have graded within 5 months of training and learn lots of great combos and self defence moves that will one day, if needed help me get out of a sticky situation that normally I’d not be able to get out of.

I go in open minded willing to learn new moves/combos and leave feeling great, confident that I’ve learned something. I’m now working hard and trying to get in as much training as possible to hopefully tackle the next grade.

I recommend Defence Lab to anyone looking to build fitness, and learn self defence while having fun and losing weight!


Defence Lab Lincoln Beginner Course

6 week beginners course – week 1 Defence Lab Lincoln

What an amazing time we’ve had at Defence Lab Lincoln recently!

Our beginner course got off to a flying start last week, with 38 people training in Defence Lab on Tuesday night alone!

We started with 11 fantastic kids taking their first steps with Defence Lab Lincoln in our Bully Proof 6 week course. Learning basic shaping and covering the head while punching while playing games and having fun! We can’t wait to see their progress over the 6 weeks, finishing in a fantastic combo that can we demonstrated during week 6 of our course. The beginner course is a perfect intro to Defence Lab Lincoln and we look forward to welcoming the new members into our regular classes once the course has finished.

It was then time for our regular Defence Lab Kidz session with a big welcome to Olivia and Kian who have joined us to have some fun and start their journey to black belt. We look forward to seeing you progress with the other students and developing your skills as your train with us. Awesome work 🙂

It was then onto our regular adult DNA class where the guys worked some great pad drills, boosting their fitness, burning some fat and learning some fantastic skills applicable for self defence.

It was then on to our final class of the night with the first session of our adult 6 week beginner fitness and self defence course. Some great work introducing the 4 man box, and why we train the way we do! It’s going to be a fun 6 weeks looking at different areas of Defence Lab from groundwork to seated positions and scenario training. You guys rock!
