This course is designed to give the participants a base level of self-defence skills from the Krav Maga Global system. The duration is 8 weeks consisting of one 2-hour lesson per week.
We’ve designed the Basic Awareness & Skills Enhancement (B.A.S.E.) course with people in mind, who are too busy to commit to our existing weekly classes, want to do complete a structured beginners training course prior to joining our mixed level classes or who simply are unable to commit to regular membership. During the course our instructors aim to cover techniques that are part of the level 1 practitioner syllabus in the KMG training programme, including awareness drills, tactical behaviour and self-defence techniques.
What will we learn on the course?
The B.A.S.E. course will address the following:
1. Basic striking skills and principles of self-defence
2. Defending hand strikes
3. Defending kicks
4. Introduction to fighting in Krav Maga
5. Defending basic choke type attacks
6. Defending simple knife threats & common knife attacks
7. Self-defence techniques on the ground
Who can attend this course?
This course is open to all ages, skill levels and anyone aged 16 or older. Under 18s will require written parental consent to attend the course. No experience is required and even if you do have a background in other martial arts or self defence systems, we ask you to come with open mind and a willingness to learn. You will be asked to complete and sign a health proforma and sign a declaration stating that you have no criminal record, official warnings or history relating to aggression, assault or related charges.
Where and when will the course take place?
The course will run at Fitness First, 55 Baker Street (Marylebone), in West London. Tentative dates are 12th Janaury until the 2nd March 2018. Each Friday the sessions will run from 18:45 until 20:45.
How much is it & will I need any equipment?
The cost of the course is £179.99 for the full 8 classes, of 2-hours in duration each. This is paid in advance through the website. PLEASE NOTE: You do not need a PayPal account, as you can checkout as guest and pay by credit or debit card. We are looking for committed ladies and gents to participate in this course, so we will only accept cancellations up to 7 days prior to the course. After this we will not refund any course fees.
Around lesson #5 you are advised to start wearing some protection (groin guard and arm guards). You will be sent a discount code during the course to use on our web shop, so you can order this equipment. We advise ordering this early to ensure that these are in stock, as you may want to wear these items earlier than lesson 5 of the course.
We require at least 8 participants to run a B.A.S.E. course. The maximum number will be 20 participants. In the event that we don’t meet the minimum attendance figures, all bookings will be refunded in full or if preferred participants can request to transfer to subsequent course(s). In the event that courses are fully subscribed, potential participants may request to be placed onto our reserve list. Reserve participants will be contacted, should anyone drop out or they will be placed top of the list for any subsequent courses.

If you are joining our regular classes from the B.A.S.E. course, you will not have to pay any joining fee.
