When you come to the South London Krav Maga training hall in Brixton to learn your self defence skills, you will be in a beginners class and this is what it is like…….
Krav Maga was developed in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld, who in 1948 became Chief Instructor of Physical Fitness and Krav Maga for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF). The FEKM (European Federation of Krav Maga) was created in 1997 by Richard Douieb, to whom Imi Lichtenfeld gave the responsibility for Krav Maga in Europe, and now includes more than 12000 members across 9 countries. It is the largest and most well respected Krav Maga organisation in Europe.
South London Krav Maga is an expanding club operating out of Brixton, in the heart of London, and was the first of the clubs in the UK supported by the FEKM, which gives us direct access to the key instruction and principles of Krav Maga. We have been training in the South London area for over 7 years with clubs in Tulse Hill, Gipsy Hill, West Norwood and Streatham, but recently we decided to centralise everything at Brixton, primarily for the ease of transport links for our students.
Our approach is friendly and we pride ourselves in the thoroughness of our instruction and in our care for our students. Our primary focus is on teaching the safe, effective and lawful application of what is, after all, a potentially lethal set of techniques and principles. Self defence is the essential framework of Krav Maga and is made up of a range of techniques and responses to a wide variety of attacks (armed or unarmed) and from various positions (upright, seated, lying down). All our sessions are safe and controlled and as a result of your self defence training you can expect to get fitter, stronger and more flexible.
