About Krav Maga

The Hebrew "Krav Maga" roughly translates to "Contact Combat" and was originally developed by Imi Lichtenfeld in the mid-to-late 1930s, who later introduced it to the Israeli military where it is still in use today as the official self-defence and hand-to-hand combat system.


Classes designed for everyone at all levels and skills sets. Whether you are novice or experienced, young or old, our training formats will meet your needs


The WKMA run a regular program of specialist training courses, events and workshops. Held both locally and around the world, we offer the chance to train with some of the world's leading Krav Maga, Kapap and Self-Defence instructors.
