Our ‘trial classes’ take place around every 2-3 weeks. In London all trial classes currently take place at either Baker Street (Saturday afternoon) or Ealing (Tuesday evening). In Thames Valley the Trial classes are at each location with various dates throughout the month. Once you have completed your trial class you will be asked to nominate a preferred 'base' location, where you will train the most, however you can train at ANY of the adult locations listed on our website, as part of your monthly membership.
During the trial class you'll participate in the training along with other newcomers like yourself and our regular members (Thames Valley). We want you to experience the intensity and duration of the class, while picking up some of the 'Krav Maga' terminology under the guidance of your instructor and sometimes, one of our more experienced club members will be looking after you.
The trial class is exactly what is says it is, a ‘trial’ so you are not tied into any contract or required to sign anything to attend other than the health questionnaire we will send to you by email. If you do enjoy your class and wish to join the club, there will be the opportunity to do so at the end of the session.
After booking your trial class on line, we'll contact you by email to confirm your booking and send you a health form to complete and a membership form to bring with you. We suggest wearing normal gym gear such as 'clean' indoor trainers, track pants or gym pants for ladies and a black T-shirt... You are likely to get a good sweat on, so bring some water and perhaps a hand-towel too.
All participants at our adult classes must be over 16 years old and those under the age of 18 years old must have parental consent and have the ability to complete the direct debit and health questionnaires at the session.
What to expect:
As with most combat systems and martial arts, we start by lining up and bowing to the instructors, who in return will bow to you. Each class has a mixture of males and females of all ages. During the class you will be required to train with different partners on a regular rotation, throughout the session. All classes involve some functional fitness, power exercises and warm up games. We typically then work on some striking and specific techniques from our syllabus. The class normally ends with some stress drills and summary training exercises. We often split the class into beginners and advance groups, so don't worry if you're just joining us. The instructor will demonstrate and teach you the various techniques along with the tactical behaviour that comes with Krav Maga training.
You're guaranteed a good work out whilst learning some very effective self defence. Natuarlly we work on prevention and awareness too, so you'll get a good understanding of how to avoid some situations rather just a solution on what to do when you are already in the situation. Expect to work hard, sweat a little, make some friends and have fun.

Signing up information:
To sign up for a trial class, just select one of the locations and dates that suit you from the drop down menu. We advise booking 24 hrs before your trial class, to guarantee that we can register you and get your booking confirmation & paperwork emailed to you. Please read our booking confirmation email carefully and remember to send us a reply, bring all the items mentioned in the email to complete the monthly direct debit form and completed health/membership form with you. You will need your bank details if you intend to sign up on the day of your trial, and avoid paying the full joining fee of £60.00. *** Signing up is for a minimum 3 month contract, with 30 days notice of cancellation required. ***
If you don’t see a date that you can make yet, don’t worry. All trial classses run at the same location every 2-3 weeks (sometimes there may be changes and we do not run sessions on bank holidays). All dates for the trial classes will usually be listed on the website at least 1 week in advance.
