When it comes to knowing how to defend yourself against a potential attacker, there are no methods more effective than Krav Maga. Krav Maga is a form of self-defense developed in the 1940s that is still applicable to many of today’s attack scenarios. Learning the skills taught in Krav Maga will not only strengthen your body but also helps you to be well-prepared in an unwanted altercation.

The Krav Maga for beginners (foundation class) is for all students who wish to brush up on their foundation level skills, including striking, footworks and defences all found in the Krav Maga Global curriculum at P1.

Here are three reasons why Krav Maga is good for self-defense:


Whether physical fitness is your goal or not, Krav Maga will train your body through grappling, strikes, and techniques. You’ll probably notice some soreness the next day, but that’s expected when you move your body in new ways. Over time, your physical health and fitness will improve.

Through physical training, you’ll be more prepared to ward off any attacker that may present themselves. Krav Maga teaches you how to anticipate an attack and know exactly how to escape in any real-life scenario. You’ll learn throughout your classes some of the strikes and blows that work in specific scenarios. Light fitness movements, along with punches, kicks, groin kicks, choke defenses, are incorporated into the class. You’ll also defend yourself from multiple attackers and different angles. Partner work is required, and on occasion, more than one partner at a time.


The Krav Maga techniques you learn in your martial arts practice aren’t left on the mat. The skills you learn in class apply to your everyday life. Making Krav Maga part of your lifestyle includes the knowledge of how to ward off attackers and protect yourself in many different scenarios. Imagine yourself walking through life with the confidence instilled through the teachings of Krav Maga classes.

In everyday life, the possibility of finding yourself in a violent situation is slim, but not altogether impossible. The reality is that the natural bodily responses to a threat would make it extremely difficult to execute the techniques taught in traditional martial arts.

The key to Krav Maga is simplicity – learning how to neutralise an attacker by using the natural reflexes of the body as a base for self-defence. While it was originally developed for military combat, it has since been further developed specifically for use by civilians.

You hope that you never need to use Krav Maga, but violence is random and if it visits you, hopefully, you’ve invested wisely in skills to save your life.

Learn real self-defence techniques that have been developed for the real-life circumstances.

We use a 3-pronged approach to developing your skills in the reality-based self defense of Krav Maga for Beginners.

Technical training

You will learn how to overcome common attacks with blocks, strikes, prevention, and awareness.

Physical training

Fitness is key to your general preparedness for dealing with work and life stress, plus the hormonal response to a violent encounter. The fitter you are, the better you can deal with…everything. We incorporate basic elements of fitness used to physically prepare professionals working in dangerous and stressful situations. Our bodies are the same.


You will develop the skills and mindset to execute moves when it counts. At SGS Krav Maga we simulate violent assault scenarios in a controlled environment. This prepares you with Blueprinting and if you are called to defend yourself then you will be in familiar territory.

What can you expect in our Krav Maga for beginner classes?

The training comes from real-life violence and threats reported in our local community. This ensures we are dealing with reality-based self-defence as attacks today are vastly different from 15 years ago. And unrecognisable to Martial Arts styles developed hundreds of years ago.

The Krav Maga Global syllabus looks at the specific threats and problems that people have faced. We look at responses that are needed and work under pressure, and what doesn’t work.

The training program involves level-appropriate concepts for what you will need to know in a given situation. Fitness is a component of each class to ensure that we are able to adapt to stress.

This value-added component means you won’t have a need for any Crossfit or gym membership as you can use the SGS Krav Maga facilities to add strength and fitness to your personal needs.

Fighters need to be strong and we pride ourselves on being a one-stop shop with professional instructors and qualified personal trainers on tap to transform yourself.

Each class looks at how a technique fits the problem being faced and delivers a learning experience that will be fun, interesting, and rewarding.

A thorough Warm-Up is done to prepare the body to avoid injury for training and set the rhythm and mindset for the desired training outcomes. A revision of previously learned or related techniques is briefly touched on the reinforced movement patterns.

New techniques are introduced with clear instructor demonstrations and explanations, then solo practice, then partner practice. Intensity is added in a range of summary drills that escalate the problem being solved.
