Krav Maga as a self defence system is very easy to learn because it is based on natural movements of a human body. Some martial arts require lots of flexibility and big muscles. Krav Maga self defence doesn't. Of course strength and good flexibility is a plus, but it is not a must.

In martial arts training and in particularly in Krav Maga self defence we practice defences against a baseball bat, knife, stone, gun, bottle, etc. To check what other weapons we use click here.

 

When learning Krav Maga you will find that lots of self defence

techniques include simple boxing skills. Boxing is therefore inseparable part of our martial arts and self defence classes. If you already have boxing gloves at home bring them with you.

You will also learn how to kick, just like in karate for example. Legs are stronger and longer

than our arms, hence kicking is a great part of many martial arts classes, and that is also true for

our Krav Maga self defence training.

 

And as most of the street fights end up on the ground, you will also learn ground fighting techniques similar to those found in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Wrestling. Our professional instructors will be able to share with you their knowledge and skills of all those great martial arts.

A message from the Founder

 

Hi everyone and thank you for visiting our website. I am Jack, the Founder of The Self Defence Academy. 

 

Simply speaking, it is my mission in life to help as many women, men and children to

develop good martial arts and Krav Maga self defence skills, so that they could be safe

in today’s ever increasingly dangerous world.   

 

I have always been curious about different martial arts and self defence styles and if you are

here on our website I would believe we share the same interest. For many centuries people have been training martial arts. And interestingly enough the main purpose of many of such martial arts has always been self defence. So self defence and martial arts cannot really be separated.

In the Self Defence Academy we practice Krav Maga, an authentic self defence system of the Israeli Defence Forces. You can read more about Krav Maga here. Our Krav Maga martial arts and self defence classes take place in two locations, Oxford and Northwood. We are very lucky to have a great team of friendly instructors who will be looking after you. Together with various self defence techniques, you will also improve your strength and cardio because those are inseparable part any true martial arts or self defence styles.

 

Come and join us. It would be my pleasure to see you soon in one of our classes.
