What We Do
What is Krav Maga?
Taught as it is in the military and to the elite Police Forces and Swat Teams around the world
Can I do Krav Maga?
Why not? We at BFS facilitate your learning opportunity and push you to your personal limit. Everyone is different and everyone is treated as such. Each BFS instructor therefore aims to provide 1-2-1 quality instruction even within a class of 20 members.
How much will it cost?
Though Krav Maga training is currently in very high demand, and therefore commanding high fees, we aim to keep it as reasonable as possible, while still providing the best instruction and equipment.
What do you need?
We do not rely upon gimmicky props to provide your instruction, therefore the list of required equipment is short and reasonably priced.
When and where?
Sessions are currently run on Wednesday nights: Junior session at 6:30-7:30 (ages 11-16) Adult session at 7:30-8:30 (ages 16+) These are held in the Gym at Wheatfields Junior School, Downes Road, AL4 9NT
How do I join?
Joining is easy; turn up, sign a disclaimer, complete a health form, pay your fee… And away you go.
