Krav Maga for Kids

8–12 years old

Learning self defence through fun and games!

We give kids a perfect mix of structure and play. They learn to work toward goals and see the results of continued practice and discipline; during every class they will develop their skills through fun games and activities.

We are dedicated to helping your child succeed on his or her own terms, and gradually become more confident and self-assured. In krav maga you have the advantage of being part of a group, but being able to progress individually. We believe that this makes a good foundation for children to experience mastery and success in their activities, and through that, build real and lasting confidence.

Stay safe - Keep fit - Have Fun!

Kids will learn...

  • Simple and effective self-defence techniques
  • How to run away and find a safe place
  • How to get help from a known adult
  • Motor skills
  • Confidence
  • Speaking up

Free trial lesson

Give your child the opportunity to try the classes out and see what it’s like.

Trial classes are 45 minutes long. No experience or equipment is necessary. The kids just need comfortable sports clothes, and wear clean indoor shoes or no shoes.

We offer family discounts for the Junior classes if more than one family member trains with us in any of our classes: kids, teens, and adults.

The first membership is full price, and any additional memberships receive a £15 discount for block booking of Krav Junior classes, that is, £40 per block instead of £55. There is no additional discount for two blocks at a time, so two blocks would be £80.


Please send us an email to confirm your booking.

You will receive an invoice through a separate email, with the payment details for bank transfer.
