What should I wear?
You do not need any special clothing, a track-suit or loose comfortable clothing is ideal. Once you join then a club uniform is available.
What equipment do I need?
Initially all training equipment is provided but as you progress, you are encouraged to purchase your own equipment (MMA gloves etc.) for hygiene purposes. Students should consider buying a groin guard as classes progress. All equipment can be purchased through Krav Academy at discounted rates.
How fit should I be?
Krav Maga is designed for men, women and children of all ages and abilities. It is not about sheer strength or power. Being fit will help and your fitness will improve the more you train.
How much does it cost?
Please contact us for additional information on all class prices, individual coaching and small group tuition.
Are there gradings?
There are different levels in Krav Maga, each building on the previous one. If you wish, you can prepare for and take a test and then go on to the next level. There is no pressure to grade but if you want to then we will guide you through the process.
Are the people friendly?
Krav Maga classes are friendly and informal. Unlike some martial arts, there are no rituals, nor different ways of treating people based on their experience. Instructors use their first name. The focus is on learning the techniques and applying them.
How long will it take to learn?
Krav Maga is designed to be quick to pick up and easy to remember. You will learn useful, practical things from lesson one. With regular practice the first grade could be taken in around six months.
Is it safe?
Like any martial art or sport, there is the possibility of injury however this is very rare. Your instructor will always do a full warm-up to reduce the risk. We have many years of coaching experience and are trained first aiders.
