“ Jon and the team took the time to understand my needs and get to know me as a person. ”
I’ve been training Krav Maga for quite a while now. I decided to join Elite following a situations where I felt threatened and vulnerable when confronted,
One day I was walking my dog Alfie, at my local park, Alfie got in to a minor altercation with another dog and the owner threatened me… I froze!.
I didn’t know what to do, I felt completely unprepared for what could have been a violent confrontation.
With this in mind I wanted a training programme which would get me fit but also give me confidence on how to deal with difficult situations and protect myself better in the future .
After 4 months training with Krav Maga Elite I already feel more in control and am able to read situations better than before, Elite have not only given me the tools on how to protect myself but also how to defuse confrontation .
I work in a highly pressurised retail environment where dealing with ‘difficult customers’ is part of day to day life, and this can often be quite frustration. Since I began training, any situation that escalated whereby the customer has become angry and sometimes aggressive towards me, I’ve stayed calm and de-escalated the situation, confident that I am prepared to deal with the situation should it progress.
Jon and the team took the time to understand my needs and get to know me as a person and I’m looking forward to progressing further through the grading system.
