Free Krav Maga Training.
Are you interested in free Krav Maga training ?
As a school we are always looking for ways to continue improving our school & its image. The input of other professionals from all over the UK, especially in London is extremely valuable to us and we therefore offer various membership & training options to individuals who we feel can contribute in some way or form to the progression of the school.
You could be a photographer, graphic designer, word press guru, marketing expert, yoga expert, journalist, weapons defence specialist, survival expert, social media guru….
Who knows ?
Whatever it is, we could perhaps make use of you in return for free membership of the school or even in some exceptional cases in return for private training.
If you are interested, please send an e-mail with more specific details outlined below:
- A letter of introduction about yourself & your contact details.
- Proposed skill / service that you could offer to the school
- What membership / private training deal you think you should get in return
We will then take a look at your proposal and if we feel that we can benefit from this we will most certainly be in touch.

Black Belt Running Test..
Your good at Krav Maga but that aint worth sh*t if your fitness is not on par with it....
BAKM has introduced a running fitness requirement for those people who wish to gain black belt (with age & gender related considerations).
At 17 - 30 years for a male student this is 9.30min for a 1.5 mile run.
At 30 - 40 = 10 min
At 40 - 50 = 10.30 min
At 50+ = 11.00 min
This is based upon the minimum requirement for a member of the elite Parachute regiment & BAKM has adopted this as the standard for its aspiring black belt students.
The test itself is over a 4 month period in that we test once and if you should fail then you have 4 months to try again.
It sounds elitist we know but we have to have a benchmark of fitness to show lower level students something to aim for.
If you fail the test we recommend the following training program:
2/3 times per week run 2 miles at 70 - 80% of race pace for the whole distance & then immediately afterwards having taken a 5 minute rest do the following interval sessions:
On a 400m track
4 - 6 laps at max speed with 2 mins rest in between (1 lap at a time)
Aim for sub 90 seconds each lap & if you beat this then cut your rest to 90 seconds & gradually decrease rest time as you improve.
After this, test your best time for 1.5mile every 7 - 10 days
Record all times as you progress.
