‘Team Building’ with a twist! Hard Target Self Defence has visited many businesses over the last year teaching self defence to staff as part of their wellbeing/team building programmes. Some of our most recent clients have been Trinity College, Novartis, The Irish Stock Exchange, Department of Finance, Yahoo, AON and many more. These sessions are a great way of bringing people together. The programme usually looks at defences against the most common street attacks, while awareness & avoidance tactics are demonstrated through role playing…… Plus it’s great fun too and builds confidence and self empowerment! The Hard Target team can provide weekly classes or one off sessions – we will suit your needs and requirements. Contact us today for details on these staff sessions.

‘The self-defence classes we had on site were excellent and very well organised. All of those who took part enjoyed the classes and felt they learnt a lot of practical tips and techniques. I would highly recommend Hard Target.’ -Sarah Kinsella, The Irish Stock Exchange.

‘Aidan Carroll was contracted by Dublin Fire Brigade to provide training for our current Paramedic programme. The session was designed to meet the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council’s Education and Training Objectives. The course fully met our requirements and it was delivered with professionalism and enthusiasm by Aidan and his team. We evaluate each of our programmes from a student and faculty viewpoint and the feedback from the student cohort and the course director was very positive’ – Gerry Stanley, Dublin Fire Brigade Training Officer.

I just wish to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Self Defence lunch & learn session(s). The advice given by Mr O’Carroll is invaluable and has altered my way of thinking and responding to any potential undesirable situation. The session(s) also highlighted how, both verbal and facial communication can affect the outcome of any situation, no matter where an individual is. Thank you and hope to see them back in the future’ – P. Keane, Dept. of Public Expenditure & Reform.
