Defendo offers effectiveness through simplicity. The system is easy to learn because it offers a small amount of techniques while addressing a vast number of self-defense problems. The fewer techniques there are to learn the greater the number of repetitions per technique. This rule results in intuitive action in highly stressful situations. Defendo also offers a psychological approach on how to use emotions such as stress and fear for survival.
Defendo is a European self-defense system developed by Jyrki Saario. It’s focus is on simplicity and realism, providing easy to learn self-defense solutions for anybody willing to learn.
