About Us

Borderless & Experiential Learning, by design

SeTs is...

Teaching, security management, and criminology are by definition, multi-disciplinary studies as well illustrated by the Periodic Table of Security created by IFSEC Global. This broad work experience and extensive education and training provide a useful cross-fertilization of skills and knowledge with many insights that cannot be gained from expertise in any one discipline alone.


However, we do not stop with academic theory, but, combine it with practical and functional education and training in personal protection (self-defence, personal security & risk management) skills, physical fitness, strength, and mobility (Parkour) training. These are, or can be integrated to create truly innovative and  Dynamic Education and Physical Training programmes. 

As it is below, so it is above

Cross-disciplinary study has both horizontal and vertical dimensions. The ability to link and present the various skills and disciplines within a coherent framework guided by consistent principles and concepts at all levels of application, no matter the context, is an invaluable skill that enhances non-linear (out of the box) thinking. Good critical thinking is more than just criticising or trying to disprove a hypothesis. It is about reflective, analytical, diagnostic and synergistic mind skills and tools.

The training provides benefits far beyond the traditional borders of basic physical education or security provision, such as staff morale and effectiveness (i.e. savings in operating costs and labour turnover), customer satisfaction and third-party security / public relations, where customers and other associates or affected persons are concerned. 

Backed by a philosophy of continuous learning, research, and development, this holistic approach allows us to bridge the gap between knowledge silos for a truly borderless learning experience, yet ease and speed your learning with experiential learning programmes tailored to your needs.

Our self-defence training and personal security teaching experience is extensive, since 1982. That's over 35 years of training and 30 years of teaching experience with the foundation and teaching of 5 clubs since 1987, the latest one being the Espoon Lii-Kan Jitsu Club Ry, founded in 2018. We are as accustomed to teaching children as we are adults, and have conducted many successful demos, courses and dynamic physical education classes for schools.
