Before we were permitted to incorporate the BSDGB, we had to establish, in accordance with Statutory Instrument 1685 (Company and Business Names Regulations 1981), that it was to be the pre-eminent organisation for the teaching of conflict management, physical intervention and self defence in Great Britain.
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.
