What our students have to say…

Tara Merrill
Great workout, great support, great instructor. team working, fitness and fun!

Emma Demicheli
One of the best workouts I’ve had in a long time! Had work but not that hard you want to give up, and so much fun!!

I’ve known and trained with the head Instructor, and he’s the real deal. If I was a student starting out I’d be banging on Ares door to train. Damien is a true warrior in every sense, humble, hard working, former SFSG Para, hard as bloody nails, and most importantly a thoroughly decent and genuine human being. Highly recommended!!!

The real deal. There are a lot of so called self defence and weapons experts out there nowadays with very little or none at all experience of real life situations or military experience. Damien Heim is not one of them after many years in the Parachute regiment and Special forces support group I can guarantee he knows his stuff and has real experience of hands on situations and combat in many different conflict zones. He has also competed and trained in various different striking and grappling sports as well as Krav Maga. I am ex Parachute Regiment myself and have been competing in different fighting sports my whole life, I’ve trained with Damien many times and can vouch for him on his great techniques, skills and friendly attitude where he is always willing to help those he is training no matter what their experience.
