Self-defence is the core framework of Krav Maga and as such, a large part of each class is based on what is called ‘scenario-based training’. This is where defence against a specific attack or threat type is demonstrated and then broken down slowly and practised. Approaching training in this way is what makes krav maga different from a martial art with the expectation that you should leave every class with a better idea of how to defend yourself.

Krav Maga was developed in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld, who later became the Chief Instructor of Physical Fitness and Krav Maga for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF). 

The FEKM (European Federation of Krav Maga) was created in 1997 by Richard Douieb, to whom Imi Lichtenfeld gave the responsibility for Krav Maga in Europe, and now includes more than 25,000 members across 15 countries. It is the largest and most well respected Krav Maga organisation in the World.

Manchester Krav Maga is run by Petri Lahdemaki, a qualified FEKM 2nd Darga Black Belt Instructor.

..an excellent mix of technique and exercise.


I liked relaxed and friendly atmosphere during course. Instructor was very helpful, which is important to me as I’ve never done martial arts before.


I really liked it. I was very welcomed for my first day. I suggest that they keep doing what they do. They need to change NOTHING!!!! This is a high level “dojo” for anybody who wants to learn K.M.
