History of NAPPI

NAPPI training started in 1977 and was developed in a health care setting as a result of litigation directed against a hospital in Maine that cared for patients with severe Learning Disabilities. Kurk Lalemand, a qualified martial arts instructor, was asked to design a programme for the management of aggressive patients in a wholly non-abusive way. He quickly came to realise that a martial arts "sport" was an "I win, so you lose" situation, therefore totally inappropriate in the care of vulnerable service users with whom you are trying to develop a therapeutic relationship.

From this simple yet unique concept the original NAPPI programme was designed and NAPPI Inc. was formed. Over the past thirty years NAPPI has continued to develop into the programme that is currently taught in America, Canada and in the UK. NAPPI (UK) Ltd. was formed in 1995 and has the sole franchise to deliver NAPPI training within the UK. There are already over 70,000 people in the UK trained in this unique approach. In 2003, NAPPI uk gained accreditation with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities for training in Physical Interventions. Re-accreditation was gained in 2007 and 2010; NAPPI uk becoming the first training provider to adhere to the revised code of practice.

Advantages of studying here


In addition to our subject specialism, the educational value of NAPPI training is central to our success. Participants remain fully engaged and greatly contribute to their training experience. Training of course, must have an inclusive approach that values the input of all.

NAPPI training is considered particularly effective for all learning styles and is evaluated most positively at all levels. Participants directly benefit from the training experience but also highlight how training will change their own behaviour back in the workplace. Organisations are able to reflect on the changes that NAPPI training has influenced over the years and report very strongly on the return of their investment.

We are immensely proud of the partnerships that have grown over the past 17 years and continue to strengthen these relationships that are the foundation of our success.
