About Us

C.O.B.R.A.™ was created in the United States of America by a former Sheriff, Maximum Security Corrections Officer and Martial Arts expert. The system combines real experience in law enforcement, corrections, multiple combative systems and military advisement. C.O.B.R.A.™ is structured just like a police academy.

Our South African instructors are certified and licensed by C.O.B.R.A.™ SELF-DEFENSE INTERNATIONAL and completed formal tertiary training in security risk management/crime prevention. We have extensive security risk management/law enforcement experience in high crime risk environments in South Africa. We work with criminals and crime prevention on a daily basis and are thus in the best position to advise our students on the reality of  violent crime and the most effective strategies to avoid becoming a victim.
