Urban Krav Maga Self Defence Seminar in Edinburgh (limited places available)

12 – 4pm (with breaks), Sat 14 Nov 09 at Edinburgh Martial Arts College 

Learn as quickly as possible to defend yourself against the 10 most common street attacks.  The core syllabus also contains a range of techniques especially applicable to female self-defence, grappling (stand-up and on the ground), fighting/sparring techniques and weapons defences. Participants will be taught how to read a situation and react/respond accordingly, even if they’ve not experienced the exact same thing in training. Improvisation is an important element of the training.

What is Urban Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is a generic Hebrew term meaning “contact combat”. Urban Krav Maga was founded by a group of instructors experienced across various styles of Krav Maga and other fighting systems and is based on defences against the 10 most common street attacks in the UK.  UKM is the only Krav Maga style that has been asked to provide a British Combat Association Masterclass, as well as the only style to feature a stand at the Seni Martial Arts Show in London next May.  We produced a highly acclaimed 6-DVD set recognised as one of the best Self-Defence products on the market.
