About Us

Odbrana (Pronounced OD-BRA-NA which means Ultimate Self-Defense in Serbian) is a realistic tactical style of suppressive measures designed specifically for self-defense. Odbrana is an authentic self-defense system that is extremely effective and applicable in everyday situations to demobilize an attacker on contact with little effort. It involves a combination of strikes, kicks, blocks, chokes, locks, throws and submissions. Unlike other forms of self-defense from around the world, Odbana teaches the individual to defend himself against multiple attackers with or without weapons from numerous vulnerable positions while under constant stress. It teaches the individual to always be aware of his surroundings and to act with caution. The individual is trained in situations with the emphasis on survival rather than retreat. In addition to hand-to-hand combat, the individual is also trained in the disarming of guns, rifles, knives, bats, batons etc. There are no age, weight or height requirements in practicing Odbrana. Odbrana is very convenient for adults, women, and law enforcement and is perfect for children's psycho physical development and mobility. Creator of ODBRANA is Chief Instructor Vladimir Djordjevic, head instructor of Real Aikido and Jujitsu for more then a decade in USA, Canada and South America.
