Jyrki Saario Defendo

A self-defense system that really works.

​​​​​​​The method is based on real-life experiences: by analyzing them, only the most effective self-defense techniques and solutions that work in actual emergency and use-of-force situations have been selected for the system

At our place, Defendo training focuses on pre-arranged theme and scenario days.


Nyrkkipaini is a combat concept built from a self-defense perspective, consisting of techniques from both boxing and wrestling, as the name suggests. In addition to these, training also includes headers, elbow strikes, and a lot of self-defense tactics.

All training is built around own free sparring, where the trainee gets to test their learned techniques in practice every time. This concept is extremely well-suitable for supporting basic Defendo training or for fitness purposes on it's own

Introduction of the instructor: Teemu Karhu

I've been practicing martial arts since -98. It has been huge part of my life and still is.

In my teaching, I emphasize individuality and ensuring that everyone learns something new in their training, whether they are just starting out or have been training for a while.

A chill attitude and humor are part of the training; we don't sulk unnecessary. We prefer to laugh and have fun instead!
