"[...] I work for the ambulance service and sadly we are occasionally attacked. Last Sunday a drunk man tried to strangle me and I utilised self defense techniques taught to me by Patrice and quickly was out of his hold and restraining him until the police arrived" (read full review)

Wondering what are the main benefits of Self-defence training?

I could probably write a full article on that topic, but in a nutshell, here are the main benefits of self-defence training:
  1. Learn to protect yourself and your loved ones: Simple and functional techniques based on leverage and quick reactions rather than strength. Urban Krav Maga is a complete self-defence system with a strong ground-fighting component. (learn more)

  2. Improve your athletic condition: Our unique programme takes full advantage of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) which is the most effective way to improve cardiovascular capacity, to burn fat (thanks to the "afterburn" effect), to build lean and functional muscles, and to boost your metabolism. (learn more)

  3. Develop your confidence and self-esteem: Learn to channel adrenaline and to deal with aggression and confrontational situations. Develop "fight back" attitude and the ability to function in stressful situations.

  4. Let off steam: Benefit from the feel-good effect of intense pad-kicking and pad-punching and get rid of your daily stress with high energy/fast paced sessions.

  5. Have lots of fun: Come with a buddy or make one! Workouts/drills are done in pairs or groups in a friendly and supportive environment.

Not sure if Krav Maga is for you?

Krav Maga (what is Krav Maga?) was designed for soldiers who do not have lots of time to learn and practice sophisticated hand-to-hand combat techniques, as such they are simple and based on natural body moves.

Urban Krav Maga is a refined version, more adapted to civilian environment. It also puts more emphasis on principles of leverage, so it is ideal for female self-defence and against bigger opponents.

See this page about the benefits of self-defence training for women.

The result is that the system is easy to assimilate regardless of your age, gender, athletic attributes, body type or Martial Art experience.

On the conditioning side, sessions are structured like Interval Training protocols and emphasize time, rather than repetitions/sets, so they are perfectly adapted to both out-of-shape-beginners and more advanced people.

Everybody exercises at about 70% of their capacity which ensures progression regardless of your athletic level and without having to follow other students pace.

Overall, the class provides a great cardio session and a full-body workout.

Whether you're looking for the energy and social interactions of a Group Class, the tailored programme of Personal Training or the specific experience of Workshops and Seminars, we have you covered.
