How can Krav Maga London help today? Would you like to learn a martial art or self defence system like JiuJitsu or Krav Maga? Whether you are an absolute beginner or a veteran you will find other people just like you in class and be welcomed to train with us. Some practitioners tell us they started because they they wanted to feel safer walking around, some just love the strength and balance that comes from training martial arts.
We blend modern coaching principles, with a relentless focus on honing our techniques and skills to deliver self defence optimised for you. Our blend of deescalation skills, combatives and grappling are taken not just from Krav Maga and Jiu Jitsu but were appropriate from boxing, Muay Thai and Judo.
Located in Islington near Old Street, Angel, Farringdon and Moorgate stations, we train 7 days a week and welcome new students.
A great weekend of deep dive training with Alan. Loads learned, great energy and looking forward to developing the 360 Krav Maga curriculum further. Photos coming soon.
Krav is known as the ultimate real world combat form. However its origins are military and we live in a society with societal rules and norms, so it needs to be adapted. At it’s heart Krav is built on continual learning so inherent in its foundation is a willingness to be agile to the situation and what works.
Our coaching team have spent many tens of thousands of hours studying a range of martial arts before turning to Krav. We believe that a blend of traditional and modern techniques tied together within the Krav framework is the optimal solution for self defence in the modern world.
Krav Maga is a fast and efficient system to teach people of any size, gender or innate ability to manage conflict. Kinetic Zen Krav Maga London emphasises walking and talking your way out of trouble as much as physical combat skills. Your mind is the most powerful tool you have and we aim to train it as much as your muscles. Kinetic Zen is about finding the Zen of inner peace, mental resilience and happiness through focused movement. Our goal at the Kinetic Zen combat academy is to enable students to feel safe and confident. And it’s fun and you can get fit. Why not? And if not now then when?
Running a school in zone 1 with a nice big open and airy space is not cheap. (At least twice as expensive as running the same space in zone 4-6). We know everybody is struggling so we have a policy of no mandatory price rises for active members. Most of our competitors have taken their pricing pages down at some point this year, but we are not aware of anybody charging less than £75 per month and most fight gyms are considerably more. We try very hard to keep our Krav Maga London prices reasonable and have strong discounts for students, armed forces and emergency services.
Tactics, techniques and mindset.
You can leave your first class with simple effective skills that really work. Everything we teach has to work with your instincts and under pressure.
Train for a month and you will have a focused set of skills that allow you to move, fight and manage conflict. Keep training and we will continue building up levels of sophistication, adding weapon defences and helping you build a flexible combat style that suits you individually.
How does Kinetic Zen teach Krav Maga? We speak softly, teach with empathy and train you for chaos.
You probably have questions: If you just want to know where and how much Krav Maga costs. Maybe you would like to know what is Krav Maga? Why is it called Kinetic Zen and what is the Kinetic Fight Academy? The Kinetic is all about our emphasis on explosive movement and an the scientific and analytical side of our approach to coaching. The Zen is about the focused and calm approach that we take to teaching an inherently chaotic topic.
Something else a lot of people ask us about is self defence tips for women and why we don’t currently have women only Krav Maga classes. That one is simple really, the 50% of our community and our management team who are women quite like training with men in a respectful, mutually supportive environment full of kinetic zen coaches.
