Our purpose is to as quickly as possible teach everyday normal people essential personal protection and self defence skills , which will ensure that they can protect themselves or their loved ones in the event of a violent assault.

Krav Maga was developed in an environment where violence, especially political violence reigned. This made it possible to test and improve under real living conditions, the discipline which has proven to be a method of ideal self-defence. The practicality of this method of training has received the approval from security and safety safety services the world over.

Unlike traditional Martial Arts which require years of training Krav Maga is based on instinctive body reactions, the moves you will do under stress without thinking!

This means that you will very quickly learn and retain the Krav Maga techniques which have been proven over and over! This is why Krav Maga is considered the most effective and proven Self Defence system in the world.


“For me Krav Maga was elating powerful, informative and hard but still fun. Of all the topics I have covered only Krav Maga has really changed my life and if it needed to it could save my life”
