A bit about Surge​

Surge was founded 2 years ago by Heather, on the principle that every woman, child and man should have the right to learn these skills regardless of their financial situation. It is dedicated to giving everyone access to life saving self-defence and protection skills with no (or minimal) cost and now runs regular courses across Kent as well as here in Maidstone. Surge also works alongside Mind UK and Involve Kent providing courses to help build confidence and self-esteem. 

Heather, Surge’s founder, started Kung Fu when she was just four years old and started teaching when she was only 13 to children within her Kung Fu school, and later running regular women’s classes alongside children’s classes. A student of Krav Maga and Judo, she has also spent time in China at the Shaolin Monasteries training with the Shaolin Monks. 

Every course has been designed to make it accessible to all fitness levels, abilities, disabilities and ages and Heather is passionate about women and children being able to learn in a fun and relaxed environment.

Self-defence is not a martial art

Although all elements are taken from martial arts, Krav Maga in particular, self defence is about taking the most direct and effective techniques and adapting them for women and children also believe that self defence starts with self awareness. 

Five reasons why you should sign up today!

  1. Learn to read a situation. Being aware of what’s around you can often be the best defence. Averting any challenges, before they start! 
  2. Find out what is legal when it comes to defending yourself 
  3. Learn the practical techniques; evading a chokehold, being pinned down, escaping out of a grab etc. 
  4. Increased confidence that transcends into your everyday life; self-esteem is increased, and positivity enhanced
  5. Become part of the Surge community, friendships have been made and there’s a lot of laughter along the way!
