Bloggers 1We have a number of established Krav Maga clubs and training facilities, where you can visit a free class, try it out, and join up if you wish.

Our classes are safe, professionally presented, and what we teach is incredibly effective. These classes are primarily aimed at ages 13 upward, and are suitable for men and women of all ages. You don’t have to be fit, in shape, or have any experience at all to start out – just come along, and take the first step toward changing in your life in ways you never would have thought possible.

PERSONAL TRAINING

At present, our most active personal training instructors are based in and around Johannesburg – but are also able to travel if costs are covered.

The advantages of personal, one-on-one Krav Maga training are significant: you learn and progress much faster, you receive highly individualized training, and you can schedule the training to suit your availability or lifestyle. In addition to regular scheduled sessions, our personal trainers can also offer you once-off courses which will give you some very useful skills without having to make a long-term commitment to training.

Here’s one of our instructors based in the Johannesburg area. Please feel free to contact him for a no-obligation quote on personal training, courses, or group events.
