I started training in martial arts at the age of 8 and I’m still practicing now. In fact I’m still learning. Through martial arts I learnt discipline, commitment, respect, tolerance, loyalty and many new skills. I also gained a lot of confidence to enable me become a better person.

The main reason I decided to take Krav Maga was the simplicity of its self defence. I did the usual Internet search, found a suitable club that met my requirements and paid a visit. After my first training session I was hooked… so I decided to join. With many years of experience practising different martial arts I felt this was the right place for me. The students at the club are very friendly. The instructor is very knowledgeable, methodical and has a lot of patience (need it with students like me).

So far my training is going very well. I will be working more on my fitness and continue to keep an open mind when it comes to learning new techniques… I have to forget about the different techniques I already know from my previous martial arts.


“I have come to appreciate how advanced and efficient Krav Maga techniques are compared to the martial arts I’m familiar to.”


I love training at Carpe Diem. They are very professional, knowledgeable, accommodate different abilities physical conditions, but most importantly spend time to help each and every individual student when required. They have really kept me motivated.

Join Krav Maga! I’m sure you will love it as much as I do.
