Meet the StandStrong instructors

Hannah Clay

Owner and Instructor StandStrong Krav Maga

I am a believer that Krav Maga offers people more than  self defence skills. It brings confidence, awareness, fitness, and friendships aswell. 

I created StandStrong as Krav Maga changed my life in many ways, as did strength training and I wanted to bring them together in one place. As a female, I also wanted to see more women involved in self defence, which is why I created the ladies only classes too.

I am a qualified Krav Maga Global instructor, and StrongFirst Kettlebell instructor and enjoy helping people find their inner strength.

Sam Hinton

Instructor StandStrong Krav Maga

I started Krav Maga in 2013 and after a few of years studying the system, in 2016 I decided to become a qualified instructor and undertook the intensive KMG instructor course. Previously my background was in traditional jiujitsu but I now train in Mauy Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu, along side Krav Maga.

I also work in security and personal protection, and I have undertaken courses including firearms and 3rd party protection which I like to pass to students. I am passionate about teaching and helping others to grow and develop themselves . I look forward to training with you.
