As such I thought it would be a good time to write a review for anyone who may be considering joining.
Firstly and most importantly let me say this, JOIN NOW, you will not regret it, not even for a second. The first session is free and it’s enough to get you hooked for life.
Now let’s get down to the details.
The instructor, Kennie Gould, is an accomplished martial artist, Ex British Forces soldier and close protection operative. It shows. He teaches the group without any shred of arrogance or condescension and makes every lesson fun, challenging and interesting.
He teaches not only how to defend yourself but ow to do within the law and with controlled and proven techniques. Techniques that may be easy to learn in principle but will keep you practicing in a quest to improve and master.
The lessons themselves work on so many levels. As an ex gym class drifter, moving from one variation of circuits to another I can honestly say the physical exercise routines are challenging but rewarding. Yet they serve only as an introduction to the true nature of the class, self defence.
I used to study Judo and boxing as a kid and whilst boxing is an effective defence format I don’t think there is anything else out there to rival Krav Maga. This form teaches how to defend yourself from the kind of attacks you are likely to encounter in the real world. It teaches how to remain calm and controlled under pressure and be confident that wherever or however you are threatened you can counteract or defend against it.
We have a great class of people of varying levels of ability in Reading and I am so happy that I chose to join when I did. My physical fitness and confidence have both improved and that is due to the krav techniques we learn and the atmosphere created by our instructor and our team.
I can see myself becoming a lifelong student of Krav and anyone that decides to come and join us will see why!
