Getting started in Krav Maga & Martial Arts Bristol

Krav Maga is a self defence system that was created to provide a solution to threats and violence that could occur anywhere, anytime. Although it incorporates elements from a mix of martial arts, it isn’t a sport. The focus is to keep you safe and get you away from danger as quickly as possible. More info on Krav Maga can be found by clicking here.

What our people say

We are really proud of the vibe at StandStrong Krav Maga. It is full of humble, hardworking, and awesome people. Here is what a few of them have to say!

I’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. 

 I was looking to learn a new skill in self defence. As a  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 have recently joined StandStrong Krav Maga and I can honestly say that Hannah and Sam easily rank amongst the best instructors I have ever trained under. In my opinion the classes have the right mix of fitness and training in Krav Maga techniques. The students are both friendly and welcoming. It is suitable for all age groups(I am 63). I would have no hesitation in recommending this school to anyone who is interested in improving their general fitness whilst learning a potentially useful self defence skill.
