Case Study: British Krav Maga Licensee
‘Training with British Krav Maga was fantastic, life changing even’
British Krav Maga Licensee
Introducing Will Bayley
Will Bayley came to British Krav Maga in 2013. Within 12 months Will had opened a full time Krav Maga School.
Since working with British Krav Maga Will has taught at the Ministry of Defence, taught a well known celebrity and been flown to Dubai to teach the Royal Gurkha Rifles.
BKMA Instructor training is many things. It’s tough. It’s real. It can be a life-changing. You learn authentic Krav Maga in a very small group with one of the UK’s top instructors.
You learn business skills and the mechanics of setting up a class. And you learn a thing or two about yourself in the process. What you can do. Where your limits are. How to break past those limits. Succeeding in the end of phase assessments is an exhilarating experience – afterwards, anything seems possible.
The professionalism of teaching standards, and the standards expected on assessment day are both very high, as is Paul Grey’s patience and dedication to his students. This dedication goes far beyond instructor training, and into mentoring – in my first six months as a professional instructor, Paul has been on the end of a phone frequently to offer advice and answer questions.
This level of support is mirrored by all the instructors – the BKMA is a tight tribe of people who will go out of their way to help each other. No hierarchy. No bullshit. Just the right advice and support as and when you need it.
It pays off too. Six months after instructor training, I have successful schools in two cities, 80 regular students, and growing every day, I’ve had the pleasure of training with and meeting a great deal of wonderful people and I’ve even been approached by the armed forces to run unarmed self defence sessions for service men and women on a base local to one of my schools, which is an honour and a privilege. And the best bit is the lifestyle change –
I now teach Krav Maga for a living, which means I get to do what I love and I’m my own boss.
With the success of my schools, my business, and the incredible learning experience and personal growth on offer from such a demanding course, I can’t speak highly enough of BKMA instructor certification. It’s a major life upgrade and I wish I’d done it ten years earlier. Come prepared – don’t underestimate the fitness requirements – and with an open mind, you’ll have an experience you’ll never forget.
