"We will teach anyone and everyone who wants to learn."
Matt, founder of Krav Maga Combat Academy
Krav Maga builds on your instinctive reactions, making it quick and easy for you to learn. This also makes it much less likely that you would freeze under the stress of a real threat.
Typically, you strike at your attacker’s vulnerable points such as the groin, and then escape. It is simple and brutal in it’s approach – but if you or your loved ones were under threat, that is exactly what it needs to be.
Almost as important as the techniques is the confidence it gives you. That confidence actually reduces the risk of attack (you look and behave less like a potential victim), but how much better would you feel knowing that you can defend yourself?
You will learn how to effectively and efficiently defend yourself against potential attacks and threats, these include but are not limited to knife and stick attacks, grabs and chokes as well as rape defences. Tell us about your fears, name the threat and we will teach you the defence.
Other benefits of Krav Maga include
Development of confidence
Improved fitness level, stamina and strength
Increased situational awareness to avoid threats in the first place
Meet new people and be part of a great, family-feel, friendly club
Most importantly, you will be encouraged to start slowly, and improve at your own pace. Your instructor will help you along with demonstrations, corrections and advice. We all learn in different ways and at different speeds.
To get a better understanding of what is involved, we would really encourage you to book a taster session at any of the venues, or even just come and watch a session.
"Best decision ever, to join the club! Not just to learn to defend yourself in a very natural way but also you get fit and have fun!
Matt is a really good instructor, helpful and skillfull, the ambience in the club is relaxed and friendly in every single way, and the more advanced students always help the rest!
There are people of every age and everyone enjoys!
I recommend it very much!!!"
"After training for many years in Thai boxing,boxing and MMA I was always intrigued about Krav Maga .I decided along with my girlfriend to give it a go.
As someone who isn’t new to martial arts I could see Matt has a very good approach to all levels and has a good attention to the finer details of this art which makes all the difference to the technique.
Knife and bat/bottle defence is taught and how to disarm
Strike attacks ,chocking defence,headlocks and so on.
Highly recommend and accommodates all levels of fitness experience and age groups."
