South London Urban Krav Maga is a Self-Defence school, based in the Royal borough of Greenwich, in London, United Kingdom. The school focuses on private one-to-one and group tuition. It prides itself on clear, easy to understand and completely thorough instruction and explanation of techniques and principles, designed to save your life - or those of others in the event of a violent encounter.

Urban Krav Maga is a Reality-Based/Scenario-Based Self-Defence system, which incorporates the most effective techniques from the following martial arts and fighting systems:

  • Krav Maga

  • Karate

  • Boxing

  • Aikido

  • Tae Kwon Do

  • Muay Thai

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

  • Vale Tudo

  • MMA

  • Traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu

A Reality-Based Self-Defence system is one that has a different approach to training and preparation for defending against violence. With all due respect to traditional martial arts, in particular those whose techniques we have incorporated for their effectiveness, this way of training is designed to get you to a higher level of preparedness, much quicker.

The effectiveness of Urban Krav Maga lies in its simplicity and the fact that it uses a combination of striking with leverage, pain compliance combined with biomechanics and the understanding and reinforcement of confident controlled aggression.

Whatever your reason for wanting to learn Self-Defence, we have the answer for any scenario you can think of.

Please take your time to read through this website. Your personal safety is something you should take seriously.
