Bullying, Self Defence and The Rule of Natural Justice As it is National Anti-Bullying Week, I thought I’d share this post with you to highlight the fact that a victim of bullying has a right to defend themselves, which can’t be taken away from them.

I have been training with NFPS since 2016 and I cant recommend them and Mark Dawes enough. The training facilities are... amazing and so are the trainers who pass on their knowledge. The course was an enjoyable relaxed atmosphere where you can have a laugh but not at the expense of learning. I give NFPS my repeat business because I trust and value the training, expertise they provide me with and also the after training support, It really is a family that you are welcomed into. Well done Mark & everyone at NFPS.read more

I thoroughly enjoyed the NFPS BTEC Level 3 advanced Self-defence Instructors course. Mark and his instructors were very... professional and accommodating. I have a background in martial arts as did many others on the course however, I still managed to learn some new techniques I’d never come across which were easy to learn and incredibly effective. If you’re interested in learning how to market your business whether it’s in self-defence or something else. The information and knowledge Mark will pass onto you in this field is worth the cost of the course alone.read more

Mark Dawes from NFPS I have found over the years has not only got so much experience, but is really helpful in... supporting other companies , so I would recommend his training 100% to other organisations. I would also add that over the years I would not only count Mark as being such a helpful colleague, but would also count him as a friend who I can trust and count upon. once again thanks Mark for all your inputread more

Prior to booking the course with NFPS i had done a lot of research on Google and found a number of similar courses... which made it challenging to choose the "right" one. I picked up the phone and called the contact number for NFPS and got through to Mark immediately which i thought was a great start. After a good half hour on the phone I was convinced that this was the one for me so didn't even bother contacting anyone else. The whole experience from start to finish has been exceptional. The course was fantastic and covered a wide range of content both directly linked to the subject matter as well as subjects which were slightly "off track" but still extremely useful. The tutors were all very knowledgeable and approachable and I felt at ease from the outset. The after course support has been incredible so far and I truly believe i made the right decision and with the continued help and support of the groups and tutors (which is provided) I feel i can definitely grow my business and create the life i dream of having for my family. Many thanks NFPSread more

Outstanding training with some of the most professional & highly experienced trainers out there. The encouragement,... support and direction I got throughout the course was brilliant. From start to finish you are made to feel welcomed and part of the NFPS family. The old saying “you only get out of it what you put in” is absolutely true on any NFPS course, and after a week of listening, asking questions, practicing techniques, completing workbooks and micro teaching I came out with several qualifications that will help me not only develop my professional career but also my personal development. If you’re considering going into the field of Conflict Management, Physical Intervention, Control & Restraints, Self Defence, Mechanical Restraints or you’re an Old Hat who just wants to brush up on your skills and update your knowledge on the law then NFPS is the place to go and in my opinion the best out there. Well done Team NFPS 🙂read more

Our training is also legally compliant with all of the UK’s common and statute law, including the Human Rights Act and children’s legislation. This means that you will be delivering legally defensible training.

It is also health and safety compliant and underpinned by competent and thorough assessments of risk.

That helps us manage the risks associated with the training and operational use of physical force. Such as the risk of a restraint related death due to positional asphyxia and the risk of injury to the person being restrained as well as staff doing the restraint.

This means that you are less likely to get in trouble if you follow our simple and proven step by step methods.

We also offer online training too in areas such as the law and risks associated with physical intervention, handcuffing and risk assessment training, to name a few.

Our mission is to help you become the best trainer you can be by increasing your competence and reducing your liability.
