‘It’s unlike any other course I have undertaken in the civilian world. It is far more like that experienced in the military, the physical robustness was more than expected but made for a superb course.”

The Krav Maga Challenge 2018

The Krav Maga Challenge is a gruelling programme of intense military-style fitness and close quarter combat training rarely experienced outside of elite military units. Candidates undergo a rigorous programme of physical and mental training culminating in “Challenge Day” a rigorous test of fitness and close quarter combat skills.

You’ll with train fellow recruits for 2 hours, twice a week working with a skilled coach in preparation for your challenge day. In addition, you’ll  get a subsidiary training programme to compliment your coached sessions and nutrition guide built around the very same programmes used by professional athletes and fighters to optimise physical performance.

Over your intensive programme you’ll cover injury avoidance, nutrition, basic to intermediate fight conditioning sessions, stand up clinching and ground fighting drills, weapons defences and disarms as well as a level of close quarter combat training rarely experienced by civilians. There is nothing comparable to the Krav Maga challenge programme. Think Jason Bourne, James Bond and Crossfit all rolled into one and then some…

Upon Graduation, you’d have covered completed 32 combat conditioning sessions, 32 close quarter combat sessions including ground combat, armed and unarmed combat & multiple hostiles.

Each scenario is focused on documented assaults in the UK.  scenario based on conditioning used by the world’s elite including professional fighters and Olympians. No two training sessions are the same, and the results are outstanding.

Train like a pro
Train like a professional fighter in preparation for challenge day. Challenge day delivers a range of physical ordeals and realistic scenarios designed to test the will, combative skills & fitness you have developed over the proceeding 16 weeks.

Krav Maga combined with condtioning is a brutally effective defence system. Paul will push you physically, mentally and technically in the art of Krav Maga and you will learn realistic and proven defensive skills. Nothing else comes close.

Been training with Paul now for over a year and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I did nothing befor and went the usual route and joined gyms but nothing compares to what we do in a krav lesson. Paul from the beginning has been an amazing teacher with all his years of experience and expertise in everything he’s been involved in. I would highly recommend krav maga for anyone interested in learning about self defence whilst getting fit in the process the location is amazing with parking if you’ve tried the rest I suggest you try the best and come to one of pauls krav maga classes …

Paul is “The Instructor” to go to, his reputation is well deserved.

Andy WrightMember: Krav Maga Bristol - Clifton

Instructors don’t come any more credible than Paul Grey.

Best instructor I have ever had. Long background in martial arts instruction, with certification and teaching experience going back longer than Paul would like anyone to know about :-) You won’t find a better Krav instructor so go for it!

After 25+ years  martial arts training including training in Japan, I can honestly say this has been some of the best training I’ve ever had. The authority on Krav Maga training without doubt.
