Intensive Krav Maga weekend course

July 7-9, 2017. Three days of intensive self-defence training!

  • Learn a lot in a short time
  • Challenge yourself
  • Have fun with like-minded people

Whether you are a complete beginner or you are an experienced Krav Maga practitioner, intensive training is a great way to take your self-defence skills a giant step forward in a very short time.

You will gain as much skill in these 3 days as you normally would in about three months of regular classes. Intensive training doesn't just let you clock up a lot of hours in a short time, your learning speed also increases throughout the course as every new technique builds on previously learned moves and principles.

What is Krav Maga?

Krav maga is a no-nonsense self defence system that works in real life conflict situations. It's made to work for everyone, regardless of age, gender, and physical fitness. There are no rules – dirty tricks are not only allowed but encouraged. Techniques in the system are made to stop an attacker as quickly and effectively as possible, so that you can stay safe.

Our method of teaching in KMG is an integral part of what makes Krav Maga so fast to learn, and in this intensive weekend of training you will get the full advantage of that. You will be immersed in Krav Maga for a whole amazing weekend!

During this course you will learn:

  • fighting in close quarters, e.g., home invasion, public transport, office etc.
  • effective striking & kicking
  • awareness training
  • defences against knife attacks
  • defences against chokes
  • defensive ground fighting
  • mental preparedness drills

For complete beginners

You don't need any martial arts experience to take part in this course. For beginners, we will start with basic techniques and gradually build our way up to more advanced techniques and problems.

We will also work on developing better situational awareness and mental preparedness, and in the last part of the course there will be scenario exercises where you have the opportunity to practice dealing with threatening situations, in a safe and supportive environment.

A Krav Maga session is a full body work out, so expect some sore muscles after this weekend. It is an intensive weekend of training, so you need to be in general good health, but don't worry, you don't need to be super fit to attend. If you have any health problems or concerns please let us know.

For current Krav Maga practitioners

If you are training in krav maga already, you will learn more advanced techniques according to your level of experience. Get in touch for more information.


The course will be at the North Merchiston Club in Edinburgh. Most of the training will be indoors, but we will also do some outdoors training.
