The huge majority of lessons are held at my apartment in Kidbrooke Village (nearest station Kidbrooke, 10 mins walk away and only 4 stops from London Bridge).
Students benefit from a matted training area, Century Wavemaster XXL Pro free-standing heavy bag, Bob XL training dummy and all necessary training weapons.
I can travel to you however, for lessons of 2 hours minimum in duration, with fuel/parking/toll charges covered - please use the contact form to get in touch.
Price and duration
An introductory lesson is 1.5 hours and is strongly recommended. It can be in person, or taken by Zoom/Skype/Whatsapp/Telegram video call. This costs £80.
My hourly rate for subsequent lessons following the introductory lesson is £60.
These can last from 1 to 2 hours. The most popular for a single participant is 1.5 hours. This is a good balance and is recommended.
£60 is the total price per hour, for one, two or three participants. So the cost can be shared.
I offer discounts for large block bookings.
The average cost of a lesson held at a location of your choice is £130-£140 (2 hours x £60 + £10 fuel + £5-10 parking). The minimum duration is 2 hours.
I also offer several courses, which can be viewed on the Courses page.
You may feel that 1 hour goes too quickly, especially if you are travelling a distance to the lesson.
2 hours may feel a bit too long, unless you are physically fit.
For 2 or 3 participants, 2 hours is recommended, so that you all get the most out of the lesson.
The lessons take place at a day and time to suit you. I will try my best to be flexible.
Payment is required before the first lesson, to safeguard from potential time wasters.
At South London Urban Krav Maga, you will not learn anything that will get you into trouble with the law. All scenarios have an answer which falls within Reasonable Force. Although you will have the option and ability, if the need arises, to escalate your level of force.
Provided you pay attention and listen to your instructor, if you ever should need to call upon the physical side of your training, you will do what you need to, in order to guarantee safety for yourself and those around you - and you will not overstep the line, leading to the inevitable consequences.
That said, your number one priority should be your own welfare, not that of your assailant. Once you get going with your training, this understandably worrying grey area will make much more sense.
