What is KAPAP?

KAPAP Academy Victoria

powered by Foenix Protection Services

Our KAPAP Self Defence classes are for anybody looking to better protect yourself and your loved ones.

The KAPAP concept is relatively easy to learn, and is very effective as a self-defence system for men & women.

It utilises gross motor movements as its foundation, combined with testing in scenario-based drills, and training against resisting partners.
More about survival, less about choreographed moves.
