“Having trained and instructed in several martial arts for the last 30 + years, completed courses with some of most respected instructors in the world, engaged in door work, trained and instructed members of both the Police force and the British Army, I’ve yet to find anything that brings as much realism to my attitude to self defence as much as Krav Maga does. This coupled with the fact that Jim Halton is one of the most all rounded instructors I’ve had the pleasure to train under, I feel more than qualified to recommend this school to anyone wishing to better themselves, either physically, mentally or just out of need to feel safe.” – Tony Baxter – Bristol student
“Jim is an amazing teacher. I was a bit worried before I join as I’m a girl and never done anything like Krav Maga before but all the instructors and members have been very helpful to me. Friendly environment. Definitely recommend” – Qiao Tong – Bristol Student
“I’ve felt so confident personally since starting my training here and Jim is a fantastic instructor. I’d recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn some good self defence, socialise and help improve overall strength & fitness.” – Francesca Haines – Bristol student
“Our instructor Jim Halton has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience over many years of training and teaching and is passionate about delivering first class training to his students. Self defence is a serious business and is physically and mentally demanding but Jim tempers this with a good sprinkling of humour. Enjoyable and character building, look no further for a top Krav Maga school.” –
Frank Sneddon. Yate.
“Having been in the military for 22 years I can absolutely advocate that Jim is a top class instructor. I was welcomed from the start and the knowledge and skill sets of Jim and the seasoned fighters is invaluable. Everyone willing to help the less experienced guys/girls. I am thoroughly enjoying it and can not recommend it enough. ” – Keith Pybus – Bristol Krav Maga Student
Krav Maga Classes. Self Defence. Martial Arts. Kingswood Classes. Seminars. Private Training
The Bristol Titans Krav Maga Academy provides regular classes and coaching in Krav Maga, the hand to hand close quarters combat system of the Israeli military. Krav Maga is widely recognized and regarded as being the most credible and relevant self defence and hand to hand combat system of today.
A street fight is not confined to fighting someone in the same weight class, the hands are not wrapped to protect them from impact, and there is no referee to stop the fight once someone has become too injured to continue.
Students of Krav Maga always train with the assumption that their attacker is bigger, armed and has “friends”.
Principles of Krav Maga include never trying to match an opponents strength, striking to vulnerable targets and hard and aggressive counter attacking. The only way to stop a fight is to fight!
You will learn a multitude of self defence techniques, including how to defend against sticks, knives and multiple attackers. Realistic training is emphasised and sparring is an important part of the curriculum. Krav Maga defences are based upon the bodies natural reactions.
