One of the most exciting experience I ever had. Thought I couldn't do it but the instructors were really good and have loads of patience 😄😄😄
Words alone aren't enough to say how fantastic is this school.Arthur is a great instructor. While we training although all of us are in different fitness shape we encourages each other,so it is also a great mindset training. My only regret is that due to the kind of my job i can only attend two classes at week.

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...

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.

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.
