My son aged 7 and I have just had our first self protection class with Ian and it was great fun and an interesting learning experience.

Ian is very honest and patient (an absolute must when it comes to me and my son!) and a real joy to be taught by, he is obviously very passionate and well trained in what he does and this really comes across in his classes.

I would recommend to anyone to give this a go and to gain the opportunity to learn the best way to protect yourself and your family by someone who really knows his stuff.

Anon - a satified mum and

My Grandson started with Hampshire Self Protection about 5 months ago and attends twice a week. He is autistic and it was at first a concern as to how he would manage and cope. We had tried lots of groups and clubs previously, but after a few weeks, his enthusiasm always dwindled. However, Jake was welcomed into the Mixed Martial Arts class and has gained so much confidence because Ian Rand has such a positive attitude that achievements can be made. Jake has now gained his first belt and is looking forward to his next challenge. My thanks go not only to Ian but to all the non-judgemental class members who are learning alongside Jake and have helped to make him grow into the young teenager that I am very proud of.

Both my boys go twice a week, initially through the school and they love it. Both boys had confidence issues when they started, and now I would struggle to describe Louie as shy and Archie comes home every Thursday night high as a kite, just in time for bed. Highly recommended.
