Self-Defence Training – Is Krav Maga Right for Me?


The Benefits of Krav Maga Self-Defence Training

Why Anybody Can Enjoy the Benefits of Krav Maga

Krav Maga self-defence training teaches a valuable and effective self-defence system. It also promotes fitness, flexibility, speed and stamina. After a short time you will notice improved mental focus and clarity. You may also notice an increased ability to deal with stressful situations. If you would like these skills and benefits you may be considering joining a club. Here’s how to know if self-defence training is right for you.

Self-Defence Training Enjoyed by People of All Ages, Shapes, and Sizes

Krav Maga was developed to meet the needs of all people – not just super-fit, agile athletes. This Israeli martial art is enjoyed by a wide and very diverse group of people.

It does not matter what height, body shape, or current fitness level you have. You won’t feel out of place at a Krav Maga training session.  You’ll find a mix of students many of who are just like you. Typically a training session will be around 35% women and 65% men and an age range of teenagers to 65+.

Krav Maga is not like some of the sports-type martial arts, which have set moves that everyone must perform in a uniform manner. Krav Maga encourages adapting techniques to work for the individual. Some of us are just not built to kick opponents at head height. So why waste time on a technique that won’t work for us in a real-life threat situation?

If you’re fit and agile, or already practice a martial art, then you’ll enjoy adding this practical, real-life self-defence system to your existing combative skills. If you want to get fit, lose weight, become more confident, and learn a practical system of self-defence, you can arrange to come along to a training session. It’s the best way to judge the benefits for yourself. Simply complete a short contact form on our website or email us at

Friendly Encouragement and Teamwork

Krav Maga is a serious self-defence system, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. There is a level of care, focus, and concentration required while training but the lessons are conducted in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, not one of competition or triumph versus failure.

If you’re worried that you won’t be able to do the training, or that you need to get fit first – stop worrying. You’ll be learning from experienced instructors who recognise that we’re all different and all need to progress at different speeds.

The friendly team-working doesn’t end with the training session. At Eitan Krav Maga we enjoy social occasions after training both at club level and with students in our federation clubs across the UK. This is a great way to extend your social circle, meet people from different walks of life and make new friends.  Especially if you’re new to London or the UK.

At Eitan Krav Maga everyone fits in and is welcomed. We’re all individuals with different strengths and weaknesses and together we make a great team.

Life Changing Results You Can Expect

Krav Maga self-defence training offers everyone positive changes that will benefit both body and mind.

To make Krav Maga effective in real situations, the training simulates the stress levels you will feel if facing a real threat. The training improves your mental sharpness and your ability to think clearly and act with confidence even in times of stress. In fact, the training will improve your clarity and decision making inside and outside the training room.

The positive body and mind changes will lead to benefits in many areas of your life; work, family and social life. Your health, fitness, energy levels and physical appearance will all feel and show the benefits of your Krav Maga training.

And let’s not forget that Krav Maga self-defence training primarily offers the benefit of keeping you safe – giving you the ability to avoid, escape from, or deal with any threat that you encounter.
