You want to become a Krav Maga Instructor?

Congratulations on your decision! Still, it is not easy to find the right trainer, who is capable of teaching you in a professional and skilled manner.
A couple of years ago, Krav Maga was bearly known in Germany. By now, there are new Krav Maga organizations founded almost every day, not only in Germany, but all over the world.
With most of them, it is not easy to track where they came from and by which master the instructors have been trained. So you should be quite carefull when it comes to the question, if these people are truely qualified or not. For many providers, Krav Maga is only a tool to make easy money. They want to sell you a marketing concept that is based on the idea of pulling the money out of your pocket instead of giving you a well-grounded education.

So the label „Krav Maga“ is often abused and therefore, you should know exactly what you want.
At „Krav Maga Street Defence“ you will get a 100 % professional training.

We follow the prority: quality instead of quantity.

Our aim is not to open up as many Krav Maga schools as possible in every city in almost every country. Decisions like that will always go to the expense of the quality. We follow the concept of offering qualified and modern Krav Maga which we are constantly improving.
