Krav Maga for Women

​​​Safe * Independent * Fit

​Krav Maga is the ultimate type of self defence training.  

It does not rely on strength or size, it works in practice and its quick to learn.  You'll get fitter and have fun learning.

​What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is the most effective and fastest way for you to learn how to protect yourself.  It is a comprehensive system of tried and tested techniques and tactics that are practical and effective for all women.  

You don't need size or strength it is based on counter attacks to vulnerable parts of the attacker's body.  Its relatively quick to learn as the techniques and movements are based on natural body movements and designed to be simple to do and remember.

​​While some people consider it to be a martial art, it does not have any traditional elements.  We train in regular clothes, there is no formality and classes are fast, dynamic and fun. 

Krav Maga classes includes dynamic games, partner and group drills such as seen in boxing fitness classes, combined with unique Krav Maga self defence techniques.  

Women Krav Maga Self Defence

Wh​y Learn Krav Maga?

Hopefully you will never need to use Krav Maga but sadly we still live in a society where 1 in 4 women are subject to unwanted advances and sexual assault. The physical and emotional impact can be devastating.  

If you are an independent woman who wants to do what you want to do without fear or restriction, then Krav Maga will provide you with techniques and tactics to stay safe.

Our training will quickly give you the skills to avoid these situations and the confidence to defend yourself with highly effective techniques if you do.
