StandStrong Academy


Welcome to StandStrong Academy. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. As you look across our different programmes, we hope that you will feel inspired to come along and meet us here at our purpose-built training centre in Brislington.

We are different to other self defence schools because we are driven by a very clear vision:

To create a new standard of self-defence and fitness

We do this by removing the ego and toxicity through a new form of self defence and fitness training that develops empowerment, respect & community.

With our programmes and your dedication, we will help you reach your goals. Whether that is becoming proficient in self-defence, building up your self-esteem and confidence, improving your mental health, meeting new friends, or improving your fitness, we are here to help you achieve that.

We have a great range of classes on our timetable, including Krav Maga – adults, women’s and kids, and fitness classes. We have something for all the family. And our promise to you is you will feel like a valued member from day one.


Our signature semi-private personal training starts on the 23rd of August 2022!
