Session cancelled: 13.05.2016

Hi all,

I can’t believe it’s been a year since last time already! One of the regular (and thus unavoidable) prior bookings at our Endon venue occurs this week on Friday the 13th of May, and as such we’ll be unable to train that day as both rooms are in use all day.

We’re not training on 13.05.2016.

Training resumes next week on Friday the 20th of May!

See you next week!

All the best,

Josh Nixon

Holiday Announcement – Easter 2016

Hi all,

Just a quick notification here that we will not be training on Friday the 1st of April due to holiday arrangements.

We’re still training the week before on Friday the 25th of March as usual, and we’ll be returning to training the week after on Friday the 8th of April.

Private training clients have all been contacted, but for anyone getting in touch: I will be unavailable from the 29th of March to the 5th of April, unless you’re in Spain that is!

A very happy Easter to you all.

All the best,

Josh Nixon

Training Cancellation – 15.01.2016


My apologies but despite my best attempts, due to illness I’m going to have to postpone training until next week.

See you all then and I hope you all have a great weekend!


Christmas/New Year Holiday Announcement


Most of you who attend our class already know, but here is a reiteration for everyone else:

Evolutionary Self-Protection’s Friday class IS on this week (Friday the 18th of December). That will be our last training session until after Christmas, so:

We are not training on Friday the 25th of December.

We are not training on Friday the 1st of January.

We are resuming training on Friday the 8th of January.

Private training sessions will continue unless we’ve gotten in touch with you to cancel due to our availability and that of the venues we use over the Christmas period.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to come!

New on Facebook: Staffordshire Self-Protection and Martial Arts Group!

A place for the self-protectionists, martial artists, etc of Staffordshire to come together on Facebook: Staffordshire Self-Protection and Martial Arts Group.

I thought it’d be a good idea to have a group for local martial artists, self-protectionists and people just generally interested in such things.

Quite often the groups on Facebook for such things are advertising brilliant and awesome courses, seminars, classes, etc in far-away places so I decided to make a group dedicated to our beloved shire.

Who’s out there? Feel free to join if you’re interested in martial arts, self-protection, health, fitness, personal security, free running… You’re all welcome! There’s a lot of related disciplines and fields of study that all benefit each other within the realm of self-protection and martial arts. If you know someone from Stoke, Staffordshire and nearby areas then invite them in and let’s get talking.

Discuss, ask questions, share, collaborate, advertise…

To all our local instructors: Feel free to advertise yourselves! Tell us who you are, what you do and why we should come and train with you!

This could be a fantastic opportunity to create a focussed, fascinating and useful online community.

Let’s see what’s going on in Staffordshire and promote our self-protection and martial arts communities!

Just click the link above, copy the URL or search for ‘Staffordshire Self-Protection and Martial Arts Group’.

See you there,

Update: Training on 22.05.2015 cancelled!

Hi all,

I’ve told everyone already but I thought it wise to leave a notice here too for any potential newcomers.

Unfortunately, due to constraints of the venue, we’re not training this Friday the 22nd.

We will be returning to training as usual next week: Friday the 29th of May, 18:00. 

All the details of the class are on the Public Classes page. All welcome for a FREE first session any time (apart from this week)!

I hope you all have a great weekend and see you next time,

Josh Nixon
