Can I hit someone first in self-defence?
It’s been a while since we’ve introduced any of our amazing members. Now we’re back to regularly training together (albeit outside) it’s time to set that straight! Next up is Mara, she tells us a wee bit about herself and why she keeps coming back to krav training!
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and the theme of the campaign this year is "kindness matters".
Before lockdown we had been introducing you to some of our members. Now that we are training online our members are still the most important part of Rencounter and why we keep going! So we’ll continue to tell you about the awesome people who train with us.
Resilience is just as much about how you recharge as about how you endure.
Taking a moment to mentally reflect on positive things every day is a powerful tool to nudge our mind-set into a more positive outlook.
From morning Monday 16 March 2020.
It’s time to introduce another one of our awesome members! Next up is Claire, who has been training with us for just over a year.
It’s been a while since we have told you about the amazing people who train with us! We wouldn’t be a club without our members, so we’re delighted to introduce them and have them say a little bit about themselves and their training. Thanks to Gianna for sharing a wee bit about how she finds training with us:
We're pleased to introduce another one of the outstanding people who train with us at Rencounter: Simon, one of our most experienced students. He has shared a little bit about his own Krav Maga journey.
It’s time to meet another one of our awesome members! Thanks to Dean for volunteering, he’s told us a wee bit about why he started Krav Maga and how he finds training at Rencounter.
As we shared last week, Rencounter has become a signatory for Scotland's Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity and Sport. You can find us at #202 on the list of signatories. We'd like to take this opportunity to tell you why we signed up, and what we're committed to doing as a club.
Sarah tells us what to expect at a National Grading.
Our next member profile is Michal!
The next intrepid volunteer for our member profiles is Paul!
This year’s campaign theme is #balanceforbetter:
Continuing our look at the awesome people we train with, the next member we’d like to introduce you to is Neil!
Our members are what make our club! We have members from all different backgrounds and experience levels and we want you to know how awesome they are, so every couple of weeks we’re going to introduce you to one of them!
This weekend I had the opportunity to go back to the motherland for some seriously fun krav training in Oslo. It was a course that I’ve been eagerly looking forward to: the new KMG Ground Fighting Course developed by Rune Lind, KMG Expert level 5, Global team instructor, and MMA coach.

Linn Haraldsvik: owner, manager, CEO, head of marketing, and janitor at Rencounter Krav Maga. Certified Krav maga instructor (Krav Maga Global), Primal Move instructor (a.k.a Ground Force Method), and MSc International and European Politics.
I started building up the krav maga school Rencounter in Edinburgh in Jan/Feb 2015. Here I will be writing about the process, challenges, joys, and detours involved, about my classes, krav maga, fitness, confidence, and about anything that comes to mind. It’s an exciting journey for me, and I don’t know where it will end, but I’m enjoying the experience and learning tons of cool and useful things along the way.
