British Self Defence Governing Body

The British Self Defence Governing Body

incorporated under authority of Statutory Instrument 1685

Established in 1992, the BSDGB is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the improvement in personal safety and to the reduction in violence and aggression in the workplace. We provide a recognised national standard which all approved organisations and trainers can follow.

We are experienced in and work across many sectors including police, prison, secure juvenile estate, high security hospitals, NHS and schools.

We are proud to be able to support the transfer of knowledge around the world with the aim of improving standards in the prevention and management of violence and aggression and in the safe use of physical restraint which we achieve through detailed research, policy and enhancing training skills. We are not motivated by any commercial interests and our materials are available to support and compliment approved trainers and training providers.

We also provide expert witness services to lawyers in the UK and in other jurisdictions (see separate link).
