I’m a secondary school teacher so need some sort of physical activity for stress relief… and what better way than being able to punch and kick pads/your training partner whilst learning all about how to defend yourself if ever put in a violent situation. I’ve previously trained karate and kick boxing before but nothing compares to the intensity and action of Krav Maga.

“I’ve always had an interest in martial arts and hearing about Krav Maga I knew I needed to give it a go! “


I was teaching Haitham’s daughter one day and saw her bring up the clubs logo on a computer as the lesson was about logo design. I asked her and she told me a bit about the club. It sounded good so I booked a trial lesson. Immediately welcomed by everybody, no egos, lots of advice offered and everybody really nice.

Fast forward… my training is going well but I would like to train more. I’m definitely fitter and more confident. I like training at Carpe Diem… great bunch of training partners and great trainers. I have the grade of P3 and I’m looking to get P4… my Krav journey continues.

You have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. If you want to train in a welcoming club with knowledgeable trainers and friendly training partners; get fitter and more confident then we are the club for you!
