ADOTG training is individually customised to meet the safety and security needs of people travelling or working in danger zones; or for people whom the threat of violence – for one reason or another – is a very real possibility.

This includes Journalists, Film Crews, Musicians, Artists, Diplomatic Personnel, Rehabilitation Contractors, Aid Workers, Athletes, Sports Personnel etc.

When people are about to travel to a danger zone they often factor in government warnings and news reports. Others will consider crime rates and statistics.

Only a pro-active few have the foresight to include preparation and training for a worst-case scenario: a possible life and death encounter.

These are the people who engage in our ADOTG training.

ADOTG training is designed for those people who have a life on the road - and who want to keep that life.

Our training will not give you a cultural or sociological background on your intended destination - you’ll have to go somewhere else for that - our total focus and dedicated commitment, is to keep you safe from physical harm.

ADOTG is unarmed combat training; using only your body or objects in your immediate environment. It is designed solely (in a worst-case scenario) to save your life or the life of someone close to you.

Confidentiality for each of our clients is ensured by SDVMA signing a legally binding agreement.

Our ADOTG training safety record is unblemished and your safety is our prime concern at all times.
