‘The Course is extremely professional we received outstanding instruction and support throughout. The course is physically demanding and challenging, but incredibly rewarding.

I would, without hesitation, wholly recommend Paul Grey and British Krav Maga for service leavers or those wishing to teach Krav Maga as part of their transition into civilian life.’

‘It’s unlike any other course I have undertaken in the civilian world. It is far more like that experienced in the military and anyone wanting to attend should prepare themselves appropriately.

The form of physical and mental robustness was perhaps more than I expected, but made for a superb end to the course and the feeling of really earning one’s place in the organisation.”

‘Having trained for almost 10 years in martial arts and combat systems and worked within the sports industry I cannot give a higher recommendation for the professionalism of the British Krav Maga Instructor course.’

‘Quality was very high, we dealt with very few scenarios I hadn’t dealt with before, however Pauls knowledge on the simplest and most effective techniques coupled with his specific reasoning for selecting that technique was very impressive.

I would highly recommend BKMA instructor training to aspiring Krav instructor no matter how good or experienced you think you are I can guarantee you will learn something new.

General FAQ

The British Krav Maga Self Defence Instructor certification is aimed at combat sports practitioners or Martial Arts Instructors who want a credible teaching certification in Self Defence. Whether you want to teach recreationally or professionally, the standards required are universal so we cater for both levels of expectation.

Is the course suitable for beginners:
No.

Credible Instructors cannot be trained overnight or even over 9 days if they have no previous combat sports/martial arts experience. Candidates are required to have a good level of stand up striking skills before starting the course. The ability to throw a jab, cross, hook, straight and round kicks and work the pads reasonably well is an absolute minimum.

We generally recommend  3 years consistent training (3x a week) in boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA or Krav Maga under any credible organisation (FEKM, IKMA, IKMF, KMG).

How much time do I need to take off work

1 Week of annual leave.  We squeeze 9 Days into a single annual leave week by utilising both weekends either side of the week.

When can I begin teaching

On successful completion of 9 days.

Is any continued training available

Yes. We strongly recommend instructors continue their training. Self Defence like any martial art is a perishable skill and need to be both improved and retained through regular training.

What level of fitness is required to attend:
The Self Defence Instructor course combines teaching, training and theory blocks over a full day. You need to be fit to train at a consistent level throughout the day. This includes teaching and theory blocks during the day. We dont expect elite athletes, we do need fit active candidates. Trainees then need to be training regularly and at a reasonable level of fitness to participate.

Age and Injury:
A reasonable allowance will be made for age and injury. Candidates will be expected to train at a moderate pace for extended periods with intervals of high-intensity training. Older applicants are most welcome.

Financial Questions

Is finance available

We are regulated by legislation and can only offer finance to those running or intending to run a self-defence business of some sort. We are able to offer finance (Installments) to those opening a licensed British Krav Maga School.

Do you offer a discount

We may offer a discount to serving military/police. Contact us for details.

Are there any ongoing fees

Instructors can choose to go it alone or become licensed Instructors for British Krav Maga. Licensed Instructors pay a small monthly fee, receive business training marketing support, websites, branded marketing materials, payment processes and lead generation from a national network.

British Krav Maga licensees are some of the most successful in the industry due to the level of training and support on offer.

Is this a franchise

No. Instructors can work independently or work with us as licensees. Licensed Self Defence Instructors pay a licence fee for business support and mentoring, use of our name, marketing from our network, automated booking systems and resources.

Paul’s dedication to delivering high quality training and his commitment to ensuring that everyone must meet the exacting standards set by the BKMA combined to deliver an arduous course which fully tested my physical and mental limits.
