Krav Maga is a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces derived from a combination of
techniques sourced from Aikido, Boxing, Wrestling, Judo, and Karate among others.

Krav Maga develops your natural reflexes
into easy to learn and effective self-defence techniques.


Self-defence isn’t all about fighting, it’s about using force where
and when necessary if all attempts to evade or de-escalate
have either failed or would not work.

You will learn to better control your fight, flight & freeze responses to your advantage as well as getting to grips with the laws around the use of reasonable force, whether it’s to defend yourself or a third party.


Many different people choose Krav Maga for different reasons, it is important to us that we understand what it is that has drawn you towards Krav Maga, it may be that you have experiences of assault or mugging, you may have some need for increased confidence, you may want to get fitter or you may have seen some Krav Maga in a film and thought “that’s awesome, I want to do that”, whatever your reason we welcome all who want to learn real-world applicable self-defence.
