Introducing Mike Potter

Mike is a senior personal trainer based in leeds. Mike attended the British Krav Maga Graduate Instructor course to become a licensee with British Krav Maga.

My name is Mike and I’m a Personal Trainer and Fitness instructor based in Leeds. I’ve Trained in Krav Maga since 2010 and always had a desire to become an Instructor.  Searching through the numerous sites that come up when looking for instructor training was laborious, having a background in the fitness industry I’m only too aware of how many companies out there will happily take your money and provide with very little good content. When I came across the British Krav Maga, I was very really impressed with their materials and people were saying great things about them. The instructor training sounded just like what I was looking for so I enquired about the training.

I was really impressed British Krav Maga materials and what people were saying about them.

I was contacted by Paul Grey, and if I had any doubts before my conversation with Paul they were all gone by the time I’d had my first conversation with him. Paul knows Krav Maga inside out and better than this Paul was actually interviewing me! Making sure that I would hit the standards that he is looking for in an instructor rather than just looking for someone to purchase the training course.

The course came around and the quality was very high, we dealt with very few scenarios I hadn’t dealt with before, however Paul’s knowledge on the simplest and most effective techniques coupled with his specific reasoning for selecting that technique was very impressive.

Not only that but Pauls ability to spot exactly what you are doing right and wrong and to apply to best corrective methods is outstanding. Within 2-3 days of the course I could tell my ability had sky rocketed. We also worked on delivering small teaching sessions, working on our ability to coach others through techniques and apply methods to easily demonstrate these techniques and make them easy to learn.

Our assessment was very hard work, being drilled on both fitness and technique for a day with very little rest, interspersed with actual realistic fight training. I came away from the assessment and the training course having learnt and incredible amount, not only techniques and knowledge but learning about being on the receiving end of attacks and very small details to change and train which may make the difference between saving your life/preventing you from serious injury or not in a real fight situation.

All in all 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.
