About us

Our professional team of Krav Maga Instructors are second to none! At Kingdom Krav Maga we have a great balance of male and female instructors. They each have received many years of Krav Maga instruction and have attended multiple training camps and advanced instructor seminars. They each have hundreds of hours in the class room as students as well as instructing and leading training classes.

Each one of our instructors each draw from their individual experience and multiple years of training in various martial art systems as well as some law enforcement backgrounds in order to teach at a digestible and practical manner that anyone can understand. Whether you are a novice or an expert, you are guaranteed to learn something new and usable at our school. We are here for you the student to attend to whatever needs you may have, even if you need one on one coaching or private lessons, we are here to serve and help you achieve your goals. 





Kingdom Krav Maga began in 2014. The version of Krav Maga that we teach is the authentic military style of Krav Maga. The techniques are based upon defenses and attacks that work primarily on gross motor skill movements, which perform optimal under stress. Krav Maga is not a martial art, it is a fighting system that was developed in Israel and is practical and very simplistic. Its no-nonsense approach to self-defense has made it the most popular and sought after training system in the world. Regardless of your gender, age, physical ability, size or any physical limitations you might have, this is the training system for you. The benefits of Krav Maga training are limitless. It not only teaches you self-defense, but it is a total body workout for cardio, strength and fitness training. You will leave after your first class with real world knowledge that you can use to defend yourself. It builds a sense of confidence and awareness that cannot be found in any other system in such a short time of training.
