KRAV JUNIOR = SELF DEFENCE CLASSES FOR KIDS & TEENS
We teach realistic Self Defence to Kids (aged 6-11) and Teens (aged 12-15) using the KMG Krav Junior program. Classes are game-based and high energy, so children and teenagers prepare for real-life dangers while having fun and staying fit. These classes are like nothing you have seen before - guaranteed. Only Krav Maga gives this mix of FUN and REALISM. Students help dictate the agenda by asking for solutions to concerns and theats they're experiencing.
The Krav Junior program was specifically developed by Krav Maga Global, to teach relevant and realistic self defence strategies, tactics and skills, in the most age appropriate way. It was designed by Master Zeev Cohen, who has an MA in education and 25 years’ teaching experience. All instructors have been recommended by their country director, and completed a 5-day Kids Instructor Course on top of the standard 24-day General Instructor qualification. All instructors have insurance, police checks and working with children checks.

EMPOWERING KIDS & TEENS
1 in 4 kids report frequent bullying. This can have long-term effects on victims.
Krav Kids are less likely to be seen as targets, better at anticipating, avoiding & reporting danger, and armed with suitable responses for difficult situations
As adolescents grow & test limits, things often go too far.
To avoid fall-out from organised fights, carrying knives, harassment, sexting and more, teens need to understand what is appropriate behaviour, and know realistic self-protection techniques
Whilst not common, children are vulnerable to attacks from older, larger predators and aggressors. Online grooming is increasingly common. Krav promotes good decision making & awareness. Kids train to avoid, fight off and escape attacks & abductions
