Be all you can with Life-changing skills

Self-mastery is a crucial aspiration. If you can develop a healthy sense of body awareness and movement, and control your emotional and physical responses under stress, then you are on track to achieve a sense of quiet peace. With that, your personal greatness is within reach.

Krav Maga Black empowers you with skills to grow into a confident person who embraces challenges, living life to your full potential.

Krav Maga is the best form of self defence

In everyday life, the possibility of finding yourself in a violent situation is slim, but not altogether impossible. The reality is that the natural bodily responses to a threat would make it extremely difficult to execute the techniques taught in traditional martial arts.

The key to Krav Maga is simplicity – learning how to neutralise an attacker by using the natural reflexes of the body as a base for self defence. While it was originally developed for military combat, it has since been further developed specifically for use by civilians.

Real skills for real problems

You hope that you never need to use Krav Maga, but violence is random and if it visits you, hopefully, you’ve invested wisely in skills to save your life. Learn real self defence techniques that have been developed for real-life circumstance.

We use a 3-pronged approach to developing your skills in the reality-based self defense of Krav Maga for Beginners.

1. Technical training: You will learn how to overcome common attacks with blocks, strikes, prevention, and awareness.

2. Physical training: Fitness is key to your general preparedness for dealing with work and life stress, plus the hormonal response to a violent encounter. The fitter you are, the better you can deal with…everything. We incorporate basic elements of TACFIT – the tactical fitness program used to physically prepare professionals working in dangerous and stressful situations. Our bodies are the same. Learn and adapt with TACFIT and your Krav Maga will be heightened.

3. Experience: You will develop the skills and mindset to execute moves when it counts. At Urban Kombat we simulate violent assault scenarios in a controlled environment. This prepares you with Blueprinting and if you are called to defend yourself then you will be in familiar territory.


Training Structure

What can you expect in our Krav Maga for beginner classes?

The training comes from real-life violence and threats reported in our local community. This ensures we are dealing with reality-based self defence as attacks today are vastly different to 15 years ago. And unrecognisable to Martial Arts styles developed hundreds of years ago.

The Krav Maga Global syllabus looks at the specific threats and problems that people have faced. We look at responses that are needed and work under pressure, and what doesn’t work.

The training program involves level-appropriate concepts for what you will need to know in a given situation.

Fitness is a component of each class to ensure that we are able to adapt to stress. This value-added component means you won’t have a need for any crossfit or gym membership as you can use the SGS Krav Maga facilities to add strength and fitness to your personal needs. Fighters need to be strong and we pride ourselves on being a one-stop-shop with professional instructors and qualified personal trainers on tap to transform yourself.

Class Structure

Each class looks at how a technique fits the problem being faced and delivers a learning experience that will be fun, interesting, and rewarding.

A thorough Warm-Up is done to prepare the body to avoid injury for training and set the rhythm and mindset for the desired training outcomes.

A Revision of previously learned or related techniques is briefly touched on the reinforce movement patterns.

New techniques are introduced with clear instructor demonstrations and explanations, then solo practice, then partner practice. Intensity is added in a range of summary drills that escalate the problem being solved. This ensures students are familiar with rapidly escalating situations and able to keep calm and cognoscente of their options.

Fitness is an important component of dealing with high-stress loads and executing techniques under pressure. Strength and endurance circuits are a consistent feature of each class to help develop students to be Fit, Strong, and Ready for Life’s challenges.

Head Instructor



All our instructors are KMG qualified instructors, who have passed the KMG GIC (General Instructors Course), which is renowned as being the most comprehensive in Krav Maga education in the world today. The course operates worldwide and is delivered by our highly experienced Global Team of Instructors.

Divided into two phases of applied learning over 196 hours (24 days), the GIC is aimed to enhance developed physical Krav Maga skills and combine it with the ability to teach others through a comprehensive program.

Successful completion of the course is dependent on meeting specific criteria at the end of each phase, concluding with a final examination of both physical skills and teaching abilities at the end of phase 2 where course participants are awarded a Graduate Grade in Krav Maga and an Instructors Certification under Krav Maga Global (KMG).

All SGS Krav Maga Instructors participate in the regular updates that KMG Australia provides to its instructor network.
