Creator & Principal Instructor of RBM, author of RBM Self-defence
Andy Rees sees self-defence as a tool for helping people take control of their lives.
Not solely focusing on developing solutions for the threat of violence, but instead also developing a system for self-preservation in all of life’s stressful situations.
RBM has been created to limit anxiety, reduce the negative effects of stress, keep the body healthy as well as the mind and improving your overall physical and mental health.
A qualified close quarters, armed and unarmed combat instructor for specialist groups, Andy developed this information into a new effective and realistic self-defence method.
The skill range available to you includes:
Psychology & human behaviour relating to combat & social conflict violence
Close quarter hand to hand combat
Blade edge & projectile weapon disarmament, retention, and usage
Anti & counter carjacking
Urban threat awareness and counter measures
How does this translate into what you need to stay safe?
Learn about your fight, flight and freeze response
Increase your situational awareness
Learn how to stop an attacker immediately, not fight with them.
Tai Chi & Chi Gong:
Andy had the privilege of training on a one to one basis with Ken Johnson, head of the Liang Yi school of Tai Chi, and 8th Dan in Shito-ryu Karate. After training extensively for years, Andy qualified to teach Tai Chi, Qi-gong, Karate, Kung Fu and other self defence and health systems.
Healthy Core Strength & Authentic Yoga:
Andy was fortunate to receive many years of private tuition from Master John Gent, the co-founder of the British Wheel of Yoga, and co-founder of Friends of Yoga. Master Gent is still the most senior examiner in Britain for training yoga teachers. Andy enjoyed access to a wealth of authentic information on Chinese, Indian and Tibetan yoga which are integrated into sessions, combined with a modern approach to stretching, core strength and stability training.
