He holds belts in Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and trains in Kick-Boxing and Muay Thai. Nick is an instructor in Krav Maga, Street Defence and is also the Head Striking Coach at the prestigious Roger Gracie Academy HQ in London. Nick also runs a successful Youtube defence channel ‘Nick Woods Martial Arts’ highlighting the need for street defence tactics.

Nick has recognised the need for reality based martial arts training for UK based Close Protection Officers within the security industry. The UK remains one of the few countries where close protection officers, bodyguards and security operatives are not permitted to carry weapons/firearms despite the rising crime levels and threats from terrorist groups.


Nick has developed a series of specialised reality based scenario courses aimed for the necessary skill sets to handle any situation that may arise for the protection of their clients. Executive Security Consultancy Operatives have all taken part in the accredited courses designed by Nick to aid their effectiveness in an increasingly dangerous environment, keeping our clients safe and feeling secure.
