Ready To Begin


Fancy getting a little fitter? Losing a little weight or feeling a little more confident? Then Institute Krav Maga Cork is for you!

Following the enormous success of our 4 week beginner courses, we are now happy to open up registration for our next course.   

Our 4 week Adult beginner courses are the perfect introduction to what we do here at Institute Krav Maga Cork. We realize that it can be a little intimidating walking into a new class full of people who know what they’re doing.

This course is open to all ages, skill levels and anyone aged 14 or older. Under 18s will require written parental consent to attend the course. 

Therefore we are running a number of 4 week beginner courses throughout the year. You all start with little to no knowledge of Institute Krav Maga  and over the 4 weeks we give you a great overview of what we do, ready for you to join our regular class!

Our adult program focuses on confidence, fitness and basic self defence, while our kids program focuses on confidence, fitness and anti-bullying.


Imagine a class filled with happy, healthy, highly- motivated people, training in Krav Maga and learning skills that will stick with them for the rest of their lives.

At Institute Krav Maga you will never feel intimidated or physically vulnerable, in fact, we do not tolerate nor welcome individuals with negative intentions. Our “ego Free” team atmosphere is contagious, and one-of-a-kind – just ask any of our members.

You’ll Be Shocked How Much You Can Achieve In Such A Short Amount Of Time

We analyse all physical and mental aspects of combat to offer specialized programs that provide effective solutions to real problems. Our years of research, investigation and our experiences have allowed us to develop creative solutions to all kinds of confrontations, from street fights with multiple attackers to bullying, sexual assaults and of course attacks with weapons…

I've been training at Inistitute Krav Maga for over 2 months now and have been really enjoying it. I've been thaught very useful tactics that can be used in real life self defence if needed; everybody is very friendly and welcoming and there's a great community formed. I will be going for the foreseeable future and recommending for people who are struggling to get started in self improvement/ fitness.

My daughter absolutely loves the club, she comes out buzzing with energy, wanting to show me what she has learnt that evening. The way Arthur teaches the youngsters is amazing, they are learning a life skill without being preached to of all the dangers in the world. The techniques they are developing will become natural to them and give them the best self defence skills in the world. Arthur & the team give 100% encouragement to all the kids every single session...Keep the great work up guys...

On what is our training based on?

This course is built on the study and investigation of the human instinct and our own real experiences and, therefore, continues to evolve as the urban scene changes. It’s a simple and straight-forward learning system, the training is based on innovative and creative techniques.


What Clothing or Clothing Do I Need?

You will only need your normal gym gear, a sweat towel, bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated whilst training as we provide all other relevant training equipment.

Im a beginner, can I come to your classes?

Yes. Our classes accommodate both beginners and experienced people who have had other types of martial arts & self defence training.

Am I too Old For Your Classes?

Our eldest student is in his 60’s and he’s absolutely loving the classes, so no one is ever too old to join.

will i get hurt during your classes?

Despite teaching no nonsense, reality based street defence; our classes are not only taught in a very fun and enjoyable manner but more importantly are always taught with great care and control to promote a very safe environment for all students.

Getting hurt in our classes should never be a concern for any potential student, especially when we have students ranging from only 6 years old to students in their 60’s.

From What Age can somone join your classes?

Super Kravers is our youngest age group ranging from the ages of 6 to 9 and Smart Street Juniors& Teens ages 10 – 14yrs.

do i need to be physically fit before joining your classes?

Absolutely not. In fact, many people join our classes especially to get fit and into shape. We have had people join our classes who started off very unfit and only in a matter of a few weeks, their fitness greatly improved and continues to do so. Read the testimonials of these people yourself on our reviews page.

what type of people attend your classes?

It can be very daunting for many people to come to a new martial arts / self defence class for the first time, especially when many places are notorious for having testosterone and ego just over-flowing in the air.

We are extremely proud that our classes are nothing like that all. It’s something about our training at Krav Maga as well as the overall culture promoted within our classes by our Instructors that just does not allow for any ego. Our classes are in fact well known to be very warm and welcoming, where even the experienced students are always happy to help any new comers.

When someone new joins our classes, there is a reason why we always say “Welcome to the Krav Maga Family!” It’s because people really do get a sense of family when becoming part of .

Can I only attend one class per week or do I need attend more classes each week?

We have some students who can only make one lesson per week due to other commitments and then we have other students who come four times a week.

The progress made by training more than once a week will naturally be far greater. But it is understandable if you have other commitments as training once a week is still much better than having no training at all.
