with like-minded people

Have you ever experienced bullying or been threatened before?

What did you do?

Do 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 developed in Israel.

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

Something brought you here.

A nagging self-doubt?

Low confidence in the work place? 

A close call or worse a physical altercation?

Wanting to try something new?

Whatever your motivations are, our focus is to give you Confidence and Ability.

This confidence will make you less identifiable as a 'soft' target and therefore make you less likely to be selected as a victim.

Gain the ability to deal with a variety of situations ranging from simply avoiding escalating scenarios to handling a subject physically should it be necessary.

Krav Maga gives you confidence in your daily life as well as unforeseen situations that you may encounter.

Confidence is power. We've seen first hand how it affects our students.

So come join us to make a real change.

protect yourself

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.


Krav Maga has featured on numerous movies including the Bourne SeriesTakenEnoughCollateralThe Debt and Casino Royal to name a few.

Documentaries featuring Krav Maga included: Human WeaponFight Quest and more recently FightWorld on Netflix.

The majority of Krav Maga techniques taught in our syllabus appear in short movie below.

is it for me?

adults of all abilities and ages

At Krav Maga Wolverhampton we exclude nobody - We have taught every type of student. Men and women from all ages of 16 to 65!

easy to learn, hard to forget

Our training is designed to take an ordinary person and instill realistic skills in a relatively short period of time. All of which is conducted in a fun and safe environment by a fully qualified instructor.

NO previous experience REQUIRED

You don't need to have trained in anything before - A blank canvas is a great starting point for us. Experienced students are more than welcome too.

You don’t have to be fit

You will get fit as a consequence of doing Krav Maga but it will be more fun than slogging it out at the gym! Our job is to get you prepared for a potentially violent situation NOT a triathalon.
