About SGS Krav Maga

SGS Krav Maga is Southern Sydney’s premier Krav Maga training centre and is more than a place where people come to learn self-defence.

SGS Krav Maga has attracted global attention for its method of training and attitude towards training. The school offers patrons a safe place to learn real-world self defence from fully trained instructors. Our classes run 7 days a week, catering to Kids, Teens, Women’s only classes, and Mixed Adult classes. The school also offers Sambo wrestling (an elite form of grappling), striking classes, and beginner-friendly lessons.

SGS Krav Maga has been rated as one of the top training gyms in the St.George Shire in the St George Local Business Awards.

SGS Krav Maga provides practical and reality-based self defence lessons based on the curriculum endorsed by what is now the leading Krav Maga organisation, Hybrid Krav Maga.

SGS Krav Maga operates classes catering to adults seven days per week, catering to students as young as 4 years old right through to senior adults. Each class is adapted to suit a variety of physical capabilities to ensure all participants receive an interactive lesson and an understanding of Krav Maga.

SGS Krav Maga also provides a tailored self-defence program for primary and secondary schools in the local area as part of the sport and physical education curriculum which also compliments the NSW Department of Education’s compulsory Child Protection Unit. This program has been quite successful in limiting bullying within schools.

SGS Krav Maga regularly gives back to the community holding two womens self-defence workshops per year at no cost to the attendees. SGS Krav Maga is passionate about spreading good, reality based self-defence and being a positive member of the local community, this was reflected during COVID -19 lockdowns when SGS Krav Maga offered members to voluntarily pay for their membership, while SGS Krav Maga produced daily video content for each division of the school (adult, kids, womens and teens).

What our

Students say


Clean, safe, ventilated, fully-equipped training facility for self-defence training.​





Starting is really simple.
All you need to do is to attend one of our sessions in our schedule for you to participate.

In this class one of our fully qualified HKM Instructors will take you through the basic fundamentals of what Krav Maga is all about. Essentially a private session held separately to the main class.

Your first lesson is free of charge, this gives you an opportunity to determine whether Krav Maga is right for you.

If you decide to join you can then choose which payment plan suits you best for your class fees.

Yes. Women train in Krav Maga worldwide and are most welcome in any of our classes. However it is important that they note that some of the classes can be quite physical and have some confrontation and drills which may involve grabbing and lifting. Be assured that we take a strong stance against ANY form of sexual harassment.

Generally, the specific motivation for women to learn self defence is the capability to defend themselves against attack by a male. This can only really be achieved by having a male simulate an attack. Anyone can opt out of part of training at any time – no questions asked (other than to ensure you are OK).

By nature, training in self defence or martial arts always bears a risk of injury.

Students are required to acquire a mouth guard and groin guard as a minimum for training. These, along with other safety equipment, are available for order through the school. Safety of the student is a key concern of the system.

Students find that training a minimum of two nights a week generally yields the best results for retaining knowledge and adequate rest time.

You are still free to train as many times as you like  during the week.

No! We do not expect any of our students to have a high degree of physical fitness. We scale the intensity of the classes up or down depending on the level of fitness our students have.

It certainly does help if you do have some degree of fitness as some of the drills can be quite physically demanding, but don’t be discouraged. We’re here to train self defence first. The physical fitness that you WILL achieve is mainly a by product.

Students can wear the Krav Maga uniform (black pants with Krav Maga T-shirt). Please note that black t-shirts should not be worn. You are free to train in other (suitable) attire if you feel the need. A quarantined pair of suitable shoes for the mats should be worn (wrestling shoes are ideal) however Nike free-runs or equivalent are also suitable.

Note that, as this is a street defence system, there will be occasions when alternate forms of dress will be required, e.g. wearing jackets or overcoats so students become accustomed to training in attire worn in winter. The instructor will advise this prior to the time required.

There will be some light  contact, (which we call marking) but not for new students.

This ensures that they are not intimidated and protects the safety of others, as new students may not yet possess good control.

We try to strike a balance between realism and safety..
