The key to success is simple…

It’s all about doing something extraordinarily well and doing it consistently.  Success is not to be found in the short cuts or half measures. Success is in the quality of what you do and who you do it with.

“The most realistic self defence system in the UK today”

Combat Magazine

“It (Krav Maga) has more self defence cred than any other system we know about – and we know quite a bit about the subject!”

GQ Magazine

Best in the World for self defence. It is totally practical, no flashy kicks or great spiritual angle.

Who are British Krav Maga

British Krav Maga® is a network of Krav Maga Schools dedicated to promoting and training the Israeli system of Krav Maga.  The term British Krav Maga refers to the association of like-minded Krav Maga schools and practitioners, not a style or reinterpretation of Krav Maga.

British Krav Maga provides a series of reality based programmes of civil, military and close protection applications in addition to a full Junior programme.

What we do

British Krav Maga® provides professional coaching in authentic Krav Maga. British Krav Maga schools focus on delivering a nationally agreed curricula with an emphasis tough training, simplicity and realistic applicaton of technique.

We welcome students of all abilities and backgrounds. We believe that Krav Maga Instructors should be polite, professional and competent to develop students to their upmost potential.

What we dont do

We reject the awarding of Instructor grades to candidates who don’t meet a reasonable, professional standard. We also reject the use of  ‘Quick Instructor Courses’.both lack credibility and integrity.

Both lack credibility or integrity and undermine standards of teaching of Krav Maga.

“British Krav Maga  has an enviable reputation for both professionalism and high teaching standards. The organisation still provides some of the most comprehensive and professional training in the world”

An open approach to self defence

We are open to debate, discussion and pressure testing. We welcome difficult questions and awkward scenarios. There is a real truth in these situations. We acknowledge that the stark reality of violence means that there is not always a perfect answer.

We are open to new, better or more efficient techniques and training. The point at which we believe we have all the answers is the point at which we begin to diminish.

Personal Protection is different to martial arts

Krav Maga is a personal protection system – not a martial art.

This is a vital distinction.

It defines who we are and how we train. Simplicity, intensity and realism are the foundations of our training. There are no abstract patterns or forms, just functional technique.

We cater for all levels from nervous beginner through to expert.

Krav Maga & Politics

Whether its organisational politics or International politics. We avoid them.

As a British based, members organisation we have no remit or opinion on Krav Maga politics or middle east politics. Politics have no place in the gym.
