SeTs Freelancer heralds from a group of friendly and open minded people from a wide
spectrum of professional teaching and security backgrounds, martial art styles, ages, cultural backgrounds various and
other recreational and professional interests and activities.
In addition to professional work experience in project
management and as English
language teachers and lecturers in higher education for
security and business topics, our instructors also have many years of training and teaching
experience in Liikan Jitsu (Jiu Jitsu)
and Kyusho, supported by several years experience in the security industry
including at the grass roots level, such as as public order &
door supervisors (bouncers etc.) and guarding (retail & loss
prevention). We have even acted as assistants (avustaja) in local Tv
programmes (E.g. Salatut Elämät ;-) and game production projects (video).
Our personal security training and teaching experience is extensive, since
1983. That's almost 30 years of training and 25 years of teaching
experience with the foundation and teaching of 3 clubs since 1987, the
latest one being the Liikan Jitsu Club ry, founded in 1996.
We are as accustomed to teaching children as we are adults and have
conducted several successful demos and courses for local authorities and
schools in both the UK (e.g. New Malden) and in Finland, e.g.
Uomarinteentie koulu, Myymäki, Viherlaakso Lukiokoulu in Espoo and the
Vantaa City 'Liikuva Koulu' sports and demo days.
Instructor qualifications include the
IFPOCertified Protection Officer
NLP Master Practitioner certificate, an M.Sc. in Security
and Risk Management and local Finnish state qualifications and work
experience as Järjestyksenvalvoja / portsari (public order / door
supervisors) and vartija (security guard / retail), with use of
force rights, including pepper spray, baton, TKP and hand-cuff permits.
Liikan Jitsuis a well rounded
self-defense and security management system that continuously
tries to renew and improve itself. What we practice is
not a sport, even though friendly competition
is an essential part of the training process, nor is it about
gratuitous violence and aggression. It is about having fun and
keeping fit and healthy in the process of personal
security training. This outlook and approach to our personal
training feeds back directly into our professional lives and
approach to the work we do.
Our self-defense training from which our personal
security management school is derived, is based in the traditional arts
and particularly well founded in Japanese Jiu Jitsu, but does not limit
itself to them. Indeed, consistent with modern pedagogical theory and
philosophy, we try to continually review and update both our knowledge
and our system from any available source as we deem appropriate, be it
traditional martial arts or modern psychology and security management.
Anything less is merely the preservation of a cultural and historical
relic that is of little practical worth, except for historical academic
