Krav Maga has a long and credible history and is regarded by many to be the best self defence system around. We know Krav Maga works and it works under stress. All Krav Maga techniques are tried and tested in real-life situations: Krav Maga is the official fighting system of the IDF.

When you learn Krav Maga you can rest assured you are learning techniques that are proven to work. Krav Maga is quick to learn and easy to retain. Krav Maga has no sporting applications, although there is a grading system for people who wish to monitor their own progress. Krav Maga teaches you to defend yourself in all sorts of different situations.

Created and developed by Imi Lichtenfeld and the IDF, Krav Maga only came into the civilian life in 1965. It grew outside of Israel in the early 1980's and is now popular around the world, being used not only by Military and Security Forces but civilians as well.

Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and you need no previous martial arts background to benefit from Krav Maga. However, some of our students have come from Wadoryu Karate, Kick boxing, Chinese boxing and BJJ.
