Self defence has sadly become a necessity. Understandably most people fear violent threats and attacks. This brings about concerns and anxiety to everyday life which can be overwhelming. Members at Krav Maga West take a different view to self defence.
They view it as a life skill which one day might save their lives.
At KMW we take a holistic approach to self protection incorporating skills ranging from overall awareness, avoidance and
verbal de-escalation to accompany physical self-defence skills.
Gain confidence to enjoy living your life
Minimise anxiety and understand Fear

with like-minded people
Have you ever experienced verbal or physical intimidation?
Would you know how to deal with being choked from behind, being grabbed or attacked with a knife or stick?
Krav Maga (Hebrew קרב מגע “contact combat”) is a self-defence and military hand to hand combat system designed to deal with such problems.
Are you here because of self-doubt? Need more confidence at work? Had a close call or worse? Seeking something new?
Whatever your motivations, our primary focus is to provide you with the invaluable gifts of confidence and ability.
This newfound confidence won't just boost your self-esteem; it will also make you a less identifiable target, reducing the chances of you being selected as a victim in uncertain situations.
Krav Maga's impact extends beyond self-defense. It instills confidence in your daily life, allowing you to tackle unforeseen challenges with assurance. We've witnessed firsthand how this transformation affects our students.
So, don't hesitate. Join us on this journey to make a real and lasting change in your life.
It has featured on numerous movies and documentaries including the Bourne Series, Taken, Enough, Collateral, The Debt and Casino Royal, Human Weapon, Fight Quest and more recently FightWorld on Netflix.

From the outset, the original concept of Krav Maga was to take the most simple and practical techniques from other fighting styles and make them rapidly teachable to military conscripts. Thereafter it was adapted for everyday civilians, women and children.
Krav Maga has a philosophy that emphasises aggression towards attackers and simultaneous defensive & offensive manoeuvres.
