Additional information The Todd Group conduct two intakes per year for entry-level phase 1 basic civilian exponents wanting to learn military self-defence and military close quarters combat. The Todd Group, formerly the Baldock Institute, established 1927, is the oldest global training provider of its kind and the Todd Group HQ in Dunedin is where the doctrine, including individual skills and tactics that make up the training packages, are developed, tested, and approved. Dunedin, being the headquarters location for the Todd Group, enables us to train civilian residents two nights a week. Financial members also have access to our combat sports classes that include wrestling and submission grappling. Membership is open to responsible citizens 17 years of age and over who are committed realists, looking for the most current and proven self-defence and unarmed combat skills from the Todd military combative packages.

The two intakes annually are February and August and after your first six-month term you will continue to train and be invoiced for your second term unless you resign your membership in writing. HQ members generally take between 6 and 12 months to achieve proficiency and meet the 100 hours mandatory training requirements for phase testing. Phase testing is voluntary and applies to those that want to test their practical capabilities, mental toughness, and inner resolve with view to achieving promotion, including working towards instructor status. Some exponents train simply to learn the phase 1 skills and will not volunteer for phase testing. Although this restricts them to only training in the phase 1 basic package of the Todd Systems, it does provide all the foundations and basic skills to combat and counter wide-ranging serious violent threats. Tactics and skills training includes unarmed offensive assault (stamp kicking and striking), unarmed counter offensive assault (evasive and stationary counter engagement), seizure prevention and escape of wide-ranging grabs and holds, common non-ballistic weapon disarming including sharp edged and bludgeon type weapons under incoming assault and in situations when held and threatened at weapon point or shaft.
