The UK Self Defence Association

The UK SELF DEFENCE ASSOCIATION is a group of Martial Arts Schools that practice and train for Self Protection.UKSDA was founded in 1988 by Gary Stringer Soke in order to bring together like minded martial art practitioners. 

Concerned only with the propagation of effective methods of self defence we have no interest in competition. We have no problem with any martial artist who chooses to enter competitions or those who study primarily for the cultural or historical aspects of their chosen arts, we believe there is room for everyone in the world of martial arts and that no one style, system or instructor  'has it all'.   


UKSDA is honoured to be affiliated with the national and international martial arts bodies and organisations listed below.
