A BIT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT

Jyrki Saario Defendo

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.

Jan is great at motivating people. He sees everyone’s potential no matter what their fitness level is. His positive energy rubs off on me and I love that he is so clear, direct and very easy to train with.
