krav maga Self defence training
Devising a curriculum that meets each students needs requires much thought and experience. Each student will be at different stages in terms of fighting skills, athletic ability and performance.
As our curriculum is primarily based on Krav Maga, self defence and fitness we have devised a programme that embodies other fighting forms with strength and conditioning training.
Our objective is to deliver classes that empower students with the ability to defend themselves with complete confidence, coupled with improving athletic endurance and performance. This includes both the physiological and psychological factors affecting performance.
The short clip taken during one of our classes helps to illustrate our training programme.
One of our most experienced MMA fighters can be seen sparring with our student who is preparing for his first “white collar” boxing fight. Another experienced fighter can be seen “pressuring” the “target” with a kick pad. This puts extra physical and mental stress on the fighter.
In the background you can see our instructor Elisha giving 121 instruction to one of our beginner students. This is an example of how we differentiate our classes.
BEFORE the “drill” all the students involved in the drill discussed footwork, boxing combinations and strategies to defend against multiple attackers.
AFTER the “drill” discussion took place on how to improve performance. All students also took part in a muscle relaxation exercise.
Positive mental focus are what our students take when the class is over. The class never really ends as our training is, and always will be S.P.E.C.I.A.L Strength. Protection. Energy. Courage. Intelligent. Athletic. Lifesaver.
MMA fighter training
It is a privilege to share my knowledge of self defence with others.
At present we hold two regular classes a week. Mondays is for beginners and Wednesdays
is for students experienced in combat sports.
The youtube footage is of a student who trains with us on Wednesdays. Pawel is a very experienced MMA fighter.
He is a positive testimony to the club and trains on a regular basis.
Pawel’s fighting skills exemplifies the high standards we strive to attain.
We hope you choose to train with us and experience our dedication to teaching a self defence curriculum that is designed to keep you and loved ones safe.
Our philosophy on street confrontation
Basic principles when dealing with weapon threats:
Stick - (baseball bat, for example) maintain good balance, be prepared to “burst” forward and close distance on the threat
Knife - good stance, keep moving, don’t take your eyes off the threat, be prepared for a frenzied attack (piston stabbing motion)
Hand Gun - remain calm, convey this to the threat through your voice and respectful responses to his demands/questions.
When training against stick, knife and gun threats; Our first response would be to always escape. If that’s not possible we would give the threat what he wants.
If that fails we would use anything we could get our hands on to defend ourselves (for example; a chair )
Our “mindset” has to be prepared for such a traumatic experience. One fundamental way of preparing for such an experience is to spar. Being able to take a punch is essential if we are to have any chance of surviving a street attack.
“Self defence techniques” are secondary in a violent street confrontation.
Training “techniques” in isolation may lead to a misunderstanding of the nature of a violent confrontation and place the individual performing these “techniques” in serious danger.
For example; Teaching students gun disarms*
* If you do manage disarm a threat do not attempt to use the gun unless you have had previous firearms training with live ammunition.
This is why we don’t we post photos or videos of “techniques”
All “techniques” trained need to be understood in “context” (antecedents prior to the threat of violence, number of potential threats and numerous other factors)
Come and train with us to find out more and judge for yourself if our philosophy will help you to avoid, or if required, deal with a street confrontation.
