Self Defence that Works

FAQ

Getting Started (Adults)

Starting is really simple.
All you need to do is to come to any Open or Beginners session in our schedule for you to participate in our intro class.

In this class one of our Instructors will take you through the basic fundamentals of what Krav Maga is all about. Essentially a private session held separately to the main class.

After that you need to pay your membership fee which gives you a KMG Passport which is valid worldwide and allows you to receive discounts from the various national workshops and seminars conducted throughout the year. You also receive a training shirt when you join.

You can then choose which payment plan suits you best for your monthly class fees.

 

No!.  We do not expect any of our students to have a high degree of physical fitness. we scale the intensity of the class up or down depending on level of fitness our students have.

It certainly does help if you do have some degree of fitness as some of the drills can be quite physically demanding, but don’t be discouraged. We’re here to train self defence first. The physical fitness that you WILL achieve is mainly a by product.

Yes. Women train in Krav Maga worldwide and are most welcome in any of our classes. However it is important that they note that some of the classes can be quite physical and have some confrontation and drills which may involve grabbing and lifting. Be assured that we take a strong stance against ANY form of sexual harassment. Generally, the specific motivation for women to learn self defence is the capability to defend themselves against attack by a male. This can only really be achieved by having a male simulate an attack. Anyone can opt out of part of training at any time – no questions asked (other than to ensure you are OK). 

Students can wear the Krav Maga uniform (black pants with Krav Maga T-shirt). However, you are free to train in other (suitable) attire if you feel the need. Note that, as this is a street defence system, there will be occasions when alternate forms of dress will be required, e.g. wearing jackets or overcoats so students become accustomed to training in attire worn in winter. The instructor will advise this prior to the time required.

By nature, training in self defence or martial arts always bears a risk of injury. Students are required to acquire a mouth guard and groin guard as a minimum for training. These, along with other safety equipment, are available for order through the school. Safety of the student is a key concern of the system.

 

There will be some light  contact, (which we call marking) but not for new students. This ensures that they are not intimidated and protects the safety of others, as new students may not yet possess good control. We try to strike a balance between realism and safety.

 

Students find that training a minimum of two nights a week generally yields the best results for retaining knowledge and adequate rest time.

You are still free to train as many times as you like  during the week.
