Rencounter Krav Maga - Pub Brawl

Tuesday 26 April, 2016. From 18:30 to 20:30 at the Mercat Bar, Haymarket.

To mark the first year of Rencounter Krav Maga, we're having a krav maga workshop, downstairs at the Mercat Bar in Haymarket, 28 West Maitland street.

It's an excellent opportunity to train in a different environment, in the clothes you would normally wear for an evening in the pub. We'll look at some important tactical and legal issues, positioning, de-escalation, "soft" solutions, protecting others, using common objects for defence, and more.

Wear normal clothes, but bring a groin guard. If normal clothes usually involves e.g. high heels, then wear that. It's an opportunity to train in the way that you would fight in reality.

We'll start at 18.30 and train for about 2 hours. Afterwards, we're continuing with a pub night!

No krav after the workshop is over ladies and gents, and no alcohol before it starts! First you train, then you can drink, but not the other way around.

This workshop is mainly for Rencounter Krav Maga members, but other KMG members are also welcome to participate, just send me an email to sign up.


The workshop is £10 for KMG members, free for Rencounter KM members.

For health and safety reasons, there won't be an actual pub brawl, this is just a catchy title that sounds a lot cooler than "pub workshop".
