Couch to Krav Drop-in Classes

Weekly evening drop-in class. Every Tuesday, 18:15-19:00 North Merchiston Club, Edinburgh

This class is for people who are keen to try Krav Maga and would like a stepping stone class before joining our regular Foundations class or intro courses.

Book now!

We are starting a new drop-in class designed specifically for absolute beginners, who want to get started at a slower space.

All our intro courses are made for beginners with no previous experience, but we know some people would prefer a more gentle introduction.

Lots of people feel self-conscious about starting a brand new physical activity, and people join us at different points in their lives with different capabilities. We firmly believe that self-defence skills should be accessible to everyone who needs them and we want to reduce the barriers to getting started.

Perhaps you are worried about your fitness levels, or maybe you need time to adjust to being around lots of people, especially where we have contact with each other.

If this sounds like you, then our Couch to Krav class is a great place to get started. We will have smaller group numbers, and the class will be more relaxed and slower paced, with the aim of building your confidence and skills in a safe and supportive environment. Once you are comfortable you can then move onto our Foundations class with some key skills under your belt, and a clear idea of what to expect.

Our experienced instructors are friendly and welcoming: we want to create a space where you feel comfortable to come and try Krav Maga, and know that we are there to support you, so you can learn and improve at a pace that you are comfortable with.

Sorry, there are no classes in the coming days.

Check back in a couple of weeks for new dates, or contact us at for more information.
