What Our Clients say

I was looking to learn a new skill in self defence. As a vulnerable woman Krav Maga stood out as you learn practical skills should there be a situation to defend. Stand Strong is different to other schools that I have tried before - Hannah focused on developing general strength, common woman attacks, defence mentality and learning a variety of techniques from other defence schools. To me this stood out as who knows who you'll be defending against. Overall I would say a great Krav Maga school in Bristol. Thanks Hannah!


I wanted to do something in my spare time that was a useful skill and helped me feel confident in the street and feel good about myself. Krav Maga was an interest but Stand Strong stood out to me because it incorporated strength training with defence techniques. I feel better in myself and as I walk home late at night I don’t feel like I’m looking over my shoulder every two seconds because I have the technique and skills to support and protect myself. It’s also gives me the boost to lead a healthy lifestyle which give me more energy to enjoy life.
