MCMA Krav Maga classes at the MCMA Training Centre, South Harrow

Our Krav Maga association is officially from Israel – ‘KRAV MAGA HAIM ZUT’.

MCMA offers authentic Krav Maga & Self Defence training for the street, society & World we live in today. Krav Maga is a real life fighting system designed to teach all levels and abilities how to defend themselves against an attacker.

There are no sporting applications to the training and will focus purely on attack and defence training for survival.

Scenario training is very important in Street Self Defence and Krav Maga. The training must be applied in a realistic situation and with aggression once the student is ready for this level of pressure. We expect that once a student has had 6 -12 months of training at MCMA he/she will be able to defend themselves against most standing attacks. We, of course have an in-depth syllabus that is used by the Israeli Military and also taught to civilians for Self Defence, so once students have progressed and passed their first phases of training and levels we will eventually advance students into the more advanced training phases, which involves ground fighting and weapon defence training (Gun/Knife/Stick/Bottle), further pressure testing and full contact sparring.

Krav Maga is known as the most efficient and brutal Self Defence system in the World today. It is not flashy or too technical, so most people can learn it quite quickly, and not struggle to learn the techniques that are being taught. Krav Maga is very direct and rigid as a fighting system which is why it is not called a ‘ Martial Art ‘ but referred to as a Fighting System or Self Defence System.

Krav Maga originated in Israel purely for the Military (IDF) but has now become known World Wide for its extremely efficient and real street fighting style.

We offer kids classes, ladies only classes and mixed adult classes in Krav Maga and integrate a full grading structure for all students to progress and advance to further levels of training.

Monday’s: 8:00pm – 9:30pm (All Levels)

Wednesday’s: 7:00pm – 8:00pm (Total Beginners) – 8:30pm – 10:00pm (All Levels)

Saturday’s: 12:30pm – 2:00pm (All Levels)

KRAV MAGA - Israeli Combat Self Defence System. KRAV MAGA is well known as the most efficient and realistic fighting system in the world today. It is very different from sport based fighting arts. In fact it is often difficult for an advanced martial artist from a traditional background to learn as it does not have a flowing style. It is also not really a martial art as it was created for the Military, but KRAV MAGA is certainly a Modern Combat Fighting System that has evolved into a popular, realistic and non-flashy self defence method of training.
