S.O.S. School Of Self-defence

There will be no SOS classes at our North Kessock dojo on Thursday 4th May due to the Local Elections

"Do not strike others, and do not let others strike you. The goal is peace without incident." Chojun Miyagi

We are sometimes asked why we chose the colours and logo we have for

S.O.S. School Of Self-defence?


We chose red & white as these are the Internationally recognised colours for those in distress (SOS) requiring help, assistance and safety.


Our logo is designed to look like a lifebelt which is an easily recognised symbol of

help, assistance and safety.


Our aim is to teach the skills of self-protection and self-defence to provide that

help, assistance and safety.

Welcome to our website! We are based on the Black Isle in the Highlands of Scotland and are a friendly, family-centred and professional Martial Arts School. We are pleased to be associated and affilliated with the Scottish Kempo Academy (SKA) one of the finest Martial Arts organisations in the World.


S.O.S School of Self-defence has schools at Culbokie, Kiltarlity, Muir of Ord, Avoch, North Kessock and Fortrose. We offer a variety of classes for all age groups... Lil' Dragons Kempo for 4 - 7 year-olds, Juniors Kempo for 8 - 15 year olds (this includes Childrens Kempo for 8 - 12 year-olds & Teens Kempo for 12 - 15 year-olds) and Adults Kempo for 16 year-olds and upwards.


All S.O.S. classes are motivational, educational and inspirational with students receiving safe, effective and practical Self-Defence tuition for all ages to reach goals they never dreamt that they could achieve and discover abilities they never knew they had!


All our instructors are SKA trained and our programmes and licenced syllabus, training schedule and gradings are aligned with the SKA. This gives all S.O.S. students the opportunity to train and learn with a tried-and-tested effective Martial Arts system plus enjoy the benefits of access to SKA workshops, seminars and annual Gathering.


S.O.S. are very proud of their Martial Arts heritage.
