FAQ’s

What should I wear?

You do not need any special clothing, a track-suit or loose comfortable clothing is ideal. A uniform featuring the official IKMF logo is available.

What equipment do I need?

Initially all training equipment is provided but students are encouraged to purchase their own equipment (punch pads etc.) for hygine purposes. Students should consider buying a groin guard as classes progress. All equipment can be purchased through Kravology at discounted rates.

How fit should I be?

Krav Maga is designed for men, women and children of all ages and abilities. It is not about sheer strength or power. Being fit will help and your fitness will improve the more you train.

How much does it cost?

Pricing can be found in the Membership Section of the website. Please contact us for any additional information you require on class prices, individual coaching and small group tuition.

Are there gradings?

There are different levels in Krav Maga, each building on the previous one. If you wish, you can prepare for and take a test and then go on to the next level. Unlike other martial arts, there are no national competitions.

Are the people friendly?

Krav Maga classes are friendly and informal. Unlike some martial arts, there are no rituals, nor different ways of treating people based on their experience. Instructors use their first name. The focus is on learning the techniques and applying them.

How long will it take to learn?

Krav Maga is designed to be quick to pick up and easy to remember. You will learn useful, practical things from lesson one. With regular practice the first grade could be taken in around six months.

Is it safe?

Like any martial art or sport, there is the possibility of injury. Your instructor will always do a full warm-up to reduce the risk. They have many years of coaching experience, and are trained first aiders.
