What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is a modern self defence and combat system that will change your life. It was created by Imi Litchenfeld who was a trained boxer and wrestler, and wanted a system that could be used outside the ring for defending oneself in a dangerous situation.

Although Krav Maga draws in combat from mixed martial arts – it is not a sport.  It is a self defence and combat system that covers stand up fighting, dealing with attacks against armed and unarmed attackers, multiple attackers, ground, and how to calm situations down and avoid conflict all together. It is known for its effectiveness with the aim to end the situation as quickly and effectively as possible against attacks that could happen anytime anywhere. 

 The beauty of Krav Maga is anyone  can learn it. Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced martial artists – it has something for everyone.  Regardless of age, gender, previous experience, fitness levels, you can get involved. 

What will you get from the classes?

. Strength and conditioning for improved overall fitness

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!


've tried Krav Maga in the past and I was worried about joining another class again. How wrong I was ! Hannah is exceptional as an instructor and personal trainer. She is very enthusiastic about training people to the best of their ability and you feel that she truly believes in you and is passionate about you progressing and developing. She is also very friendly. Krav Maga is a great self protection skill and Hannah and Sam will develop you and push you at your own pace to become the best you can. Hannah has also taken time out to tutor me in kettlebells which she didn't have to do but it will be beneficial to krav and my health. The club hasn't been open that long but we have had our first p1 achievement and kudos to Katherine and Hannah for making that happen. This is just the start of many. The club is diverse in regards to Hannah teaches kids with the other instructor Sam, a ladies only group and a mixed adult group. I'm going to enjoy watching this club go from strength to strength and growing and feel proud to be a part of it. Well doneI'
