Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a practical modern self defence system which is intuitive, effective and adaptable to the environment. Krav Maga teaches students to identify, overcome and escape attacks.

Students learn self defence, protection of others, defence from weapons and multiple attackers, as well as combat fitness, mindset and discipline. Krav Maga techniques do not rely on brute strength. This makes it an ideal self defence system for all ages, sizes and fitness levels.

Krav Maga focuses on neutralising the threat efficiently, using a combination of strikes, releases, takedowns and evasive movement. We use a variety of techniques however they centre around a set of principles and common movements. This ensures that we keep our defensive tools as simple as possible allowing us to access them in times of duress. As Imi Lichtenfeld creator of Krav Maga said  "Many problems, one solution".

Guardian Defence emphasises reality based training. We have a dedicated scenario room, designed to imitate real life situations, where students need to operate under adrenal stress.
