Welcome To CQC Ireland

CQC is a modern, realistic self defence system for men and women, originally developed as a police system and now used by many international organisations. Close Quarter Combat is not a Martial Arts or Fitness system. Instead, CQC teaches you how to use the skills and physical abilities that you already have to successfully defend yourself. We teach basic, highly effective and Instinctive Body Reactions so you will remember them during confrontation! If you are mainly interested in self-defence, there is no need to learn hundreds of different techniques. Each CQC course teaches only the essentials and our system has been streamlined so that you will very quickly learn and retain the self defense techniques which have been proven over and over!
