“The expert instructors have a thorough understanding of what works, and what doesn’t”

Last year I was assaulted whilst out with a group of photographers. It was a massive wake up call as firstly, I didn’t see it coming and secondly my reaction time was way too slow. It could have been a lot worse than an argument and being spat in the face but it was a humiliating and unpleasant experience that could have easily turned violent.

In 2001 I lived in Japan for 6 months and decided to take up Karate – Daidojuku – now known as Kudo and threw myself into training 5 times a week. I Learned some skills at a very basic level and passed the first grading – despite not really understanding the language and managing to kick a wall barefoot during this!

After returning to the UK I dabbled in a few martial arts for a matter of weeks or months, some were way too technical or soft… so I settled in to doing almost no exercise for 14 years! I hadn’t found anything on a par with my experience in Japan – that is until I found Krav Maga.

“The expert instructors have a thorough understanding of what works, and what doesn’t”

A couple of things that stand out after about a dozen or so lessons:
Realism: The instructors put you in a mixture of realistic self-defence scenarios, anything from knife attacks to protecting a loved one against multiple attackers. The defences are easy to learn and very effective. There’s a great atmosphere in class and you’ll be training with like minded and friendly students.

Professional: Very impressed with the way Elite run the organisation – you are very aware that they take your training and wellbeing very seriously. All the instruction has been detailed and to a very high standard. The expert instructors have a thorough understanding of what works, and what doesn’t, together with a great sense of humour!

Fitness: Some of the lessons are tough and push you further than you think possible. I’ve noticed an increase in fitness mostly on the couple of occasions I’ve gone back on a treadmill – the difference is quite tangible.

If anything, I almost feel thanks to the ‘spitter’ as he was the catalyst that started me on this journey. My hope is to train hard and reach a good standard but never need to use these skills by being more aware of situations before they arise – backed with the confidence that I’m able to defend myself when needed.

With an increasingly more violent society these are skills are becoming more or less essential and sometimes being attacked is unavoidable. So If you’re looking for a great way learn how to defend yourself, and have fun doing it, I’d thoroughly recommend Krav Maga Elite.

Hope to see you there!
