spencer sgs kids krav maga review

I’ve been taking my son here for a few months. I’ve seen a massive increase in his confidence! The instructors are so good with the kids, my son looks forward to going and actively participates! Which is rare because he usually wants to sit at home…

When I first became interested in Krav Maga, I tried a few gyms in Sydney CBD and could never really commit because the environment didn’t draw me in and I found the techniques unrealistic for real life scenarios.

On a whim, I decided to try a gym closer to home and found that, even after the second lesson at SGS, I had a much better understanding of basic defences for real-life situations. Being able to train alongside people of all levels in smaller classes really made a difference and Steve’s [the owner’s] knowledge about proper technique (combined with some early morning banter) is unmatched. I also found that the trainers here pay attention to each student and make sure everyone’s technique is correct before moving on, which I definitely appreciate as a beginner!!

Absolutely loving my time with SGS Krav Maga! The instructors are highly skilled and the community has been very welcoming. Since starting with SGS Krav Maga, I’ve felt my confidence improve, my strength increase and thanks to the amazing instructors, I’ve already begun building a toolkit of self-defence techniques to feel safer in everyday life. Highly recommend this gym to everyone, especially women who want to feel stronger, safer and more capable!

SGS is a fantastic gym, built around a super safe and supportive learning environment. The instructors are extremely knowledgable and attentive, all of whom have earned their expertise through hard work and real life experiences. Steve especially instills a deep learning culture in the school. He has organised for some of the world’s top level expert fighters to teach classes in the school and share their unique expertise with students. Steve also organises weekend long camps to help students prepare for gradings and apply techniques taught in the gym to real world scenarios.

The students in the school are also really friendly and will make you feel welcome. For women especially, it can be intimidating to sign up for self-defense classes if you’ve never done martial arts or fighting before. There are many classes and levels for you to start where you feel comfortable, including women only classes. Many of the female instructors and students have been training for many years and are badass. They inspire you to become more confident and assertive in training and lead by example.

If you’re looking for a beginner friendly gym, with supportive instructors and friendly students then look no further than SGS Krav Maga. You’ll love learning this self-defense system and walk out more confident after each class.

For anyone like me, who has never had any prior experience with learning self-defence, and was extremely nervous to start learning something new, this place couldn’t have been a better choice. Super friendly and welcoming environment, and all the instructors are extremely patient and professional with exceptional knowledge. They’re very supportive and attentive when teaching you the necessary skills you need to feel safe and comfortable. Haven’t thought twice about going to another gym. Can’t recommend SGS Krav Maga enough.

Started with SGS Krav Maga as my first Krav experience.

Was new to the fighting style so went in with no knowledge aside from its origins, and am proud to be one of its members!

The instructor team is well informed and are always happy to assist in training their students. The gym is well maintained and offers a great opportunity to learn the system and hone your skills.

My confidence and feeling of self worth has improved immensely from training and learning this system of self defense.

If you’re looking to start learning Krav Maga, willing to get fit, make friends and work hard, SGS Krav Maga is the school to be in!

If you’re looking for a realistic, practical self-defence system, then SGS Krav Maga is definitely for you! I started at SGS four years ago when I was 11 years old. In that time, I have gained life-long skills, friendships, and goals. At SGS Krav Maga, they offer a variety of different classes, which are taught by fully certified KMG instructors. In these classes, you acquire skills to not only protect yourself, but your loved ones as well, which is an important part of self-defence. The adults, kids, teens, and womens program are available to anyone willing, and eager to learn!

The social environment of SGS Krav Maga is amazing! Everyone is extremely friendly, supportive, and encouraging. If you are at SGS, you will definitely feel welcomed and part of the community! I am being completely honest when I say that SGS Krav Maga is like a second home to me. The amount of happiness, confidence, discipline, and life lessons you can gain along the way, on top of self-defence, is truly incredible. Being at SGS over the years has definitely influenced the person I am today, and I wouldn’t trade a second of it. Which is why I would recommend everyone to come try SGS Krav Maga👍

Steve the owner and Expert Level Head Instructor, along with his large team of male and female Instructors, provide the best teaching experience in each class for any person to easily learn and advance in these very effective techniques.

If you are looking for a place that can provide an all round self defense system that works to protect yourself and your family, along with improving your fitness, SGS Krav Maga is what you need.

No ego’s and no nonsense here….this is the real deal!

I spent many years training different styles of martial arts self defence/fighting styles but none of them came close to what I’ve learnt training with Steve and all his instructors if would have to be honest one of the best places to learn real-life self-defence. All the instructors are brilliant and more than generous with their time to help you improve. Everybody that trains at this club are so friendly that it truly is an enjoyable place to learn. I definitely recommend SGS Krav Maga

Steve and Stella ran a Women’s Self-Defence Krav Maga workshop at my university and did an incredible job! All participants felt empowered and up-skilled. The event was amazing and I cannot recommend SGS Krav Maga enough!

All my life I have done some form of self defence martial art including 8 years in Kung Fu. Throughout the training I thought about some of the practical applications of the styles and left me a little concerned in real life scenarios. After an extensive break from training I new it was time back to it and also wanted to get my son into it. I had heard about Krav Maga and went to check it out a school near me. Met Steve and I knew this was the one. Krav Msga has left no doubts in my mind about real life application and practicality. Steve and the trainers are awesome, the techniques are tested and the intensity is next level. If you are looking to really protect yourself or your loved ones with a progressive ever developing system then joining this School is the way to go.

Great space. Experienced instructor. Friendly atmosphere. All around highly recommend! People drive more than an hour to train here, based on the reputation of the instructors. If you’re lucky enough to live closer, there’s no better place to learn krav maga.

SGS offers professional and effective women’s self defence classes! The instructors are very knowledgeable and provide individual attention to students during classes to ensure everyone is learning at a good pace. Highly recommended for defence classes!

Sylwia SGS Krav Maga

What a great place to train! Whether you are just a curious total beginner, an old Krav Dog or are working on feeling a bit safer out there again – this is your gym.

Classes are run by incredible instructors, fully certified to the Krav Maga Global standards. Just by watching them teach or train you will know they got to there by solid, hard work not by a secret handshake. They teach real, tactical self defence techniques that have been tested over and over again, and modified if needed, to keep them effective and relevant.

You get to train in a safe environment where there is no room for inflated egos and out of control “muscle heads”.

The gym offers adult mixed classes, advanced classes, women’s only classes and kid’s classes. You can also avail of the 1 on 1 sessions too. I don’t even know if there is a gym out there that offers that much.

What is more, there is an amazing and supportive community of people training here. From different walks of life, different ages, fitness levels and backgrounds. Meeting on the mat to get fitter stronger, more confident and assertive, both physically and mentally.

If you have any questions at all – contact Steve. He is one of the few instructors out there that is driven by passion, always striving to offer the best to his students and keeping his team of instructors and students motivated, safe and disciplined.

Without doubt the best thing I’ve done since moving to Sydney. When I first joined I felt a wee bit intimidated – everyone knew each other and they all seemed to know what they were doing – whereas I didn’t have a clue. After just a couple of lessons I felt part of the group – great teachers, great support, great group and great banter – all in all pretty great really!

SGS Krav Maga is an experience unlike any other, it keeps you fit, teaches you (unlike other martial arts) real defensive techniques that work with absolutely everything !! And personally, without the training, I’ve been taught at SGS Krav Maga, I wouldn’t be the man I am today.

Training with Steve and the team at SGS Krav Maga has been very rewarding and they have created and maintained one of the most effective learning environments that I have come across. The depth of knowledge provided and application of skills by all of the instructors is extensive and their ability to teach these realistic skills to their students is first-rate.  SGS will build real-life functional fitness, controlled aggression, and confidence. It is an excellent complement to those working in the MILES industry

My husband and two daughters have been learning with Steve for a while. It’s been reassuring to know my teenager is developing the confidence and awareness to keep herself safe, especially with her wanting more independence and freedom to go out. My younger girl has a lot of fun in the kids’ class.

I finally started going to Steve’s classes myself, and like their practical, evidence based teaching with achievable techniques that will work despite me being short. Great mental and physical workout. Great supportive atmosphere too, with people happy to help each other.
