About Primal Survival™

Primal Survival™ was founded in 2005 by Coach Karma Lodro Senge. It is a system of self defense unlike 99.9% of martial art and self defense systems out there. The system takes into account our natural and instinctive physiological responses to danger and utilizes those fundamental traits as the foundation of the system.

Primal Survival is a complete reality-based self-protection system – open to adults of all ages, from all walks of life. Primal Survival lays a foundation for recognising and understanding confrontation and violence, as well as teaching you the skills to diffuse and the techniques to defend.

“Primal Survival is a refinement of survival instincts already present in our nervous system.” – Karma Senge

With a strong focus on recognising and preventing violence where possible in the early stages of a confrontation, Primal Survival includes training on avoidance and awareness strategies, de-escalation and diffusion, and physical defence concepts and training.

Primal Survival is more than just self defense. It is about being a true warrior. Understanding of physical self defense training, understanding of psychological and behavioral aspects of not just the criminal but of yourself as well. Understanding, & analyzation of FEAR as well as how to overcome FEAR. Understanding and training of what the human body wants to do without any type of self defense training. We even go into Nutrition, fitness, and many other aspects of life.
