Krav Maga’s goal is to spread Krav Maga all around the world, fulfilling the founder’s dream and maintain a high quality teaching through its instructors.
Krav Maga Philippines (KMP) is founded in 2004 by Kenneth C. Asuncion, the Country Director of Krav Maga Global in the Philippines. Our close to a decade experience and knowledge has successfully introduced and created the demand for this unique and effective self-defence system in this country. Krav Maga Philippines has produced high level practitioners and the first batch of local instructors in the Philippines. KMP’s goal is to continue to produce skilled practitioner and to increase the number of Krav Maga Instructors to cater to the growing demand for this self-defence system. Our affiliation with Krav Maga Global assures you that all our instructors are certified and have passed the stringent standards imposed by KMG for Instructor Certification.
Up to the mid 80′s all Krav Maga organizations were rather similar. Later on, Imi and Eyal Yanilov worked together in changing the system. Other instructors who were not close to them or had their own organizations were not updated. Since the mid 90′s the knowledge and ways grew apart even more. Those who practice original Krav Maga should be more or less in the same direction; unfortunately this is not always the case. KMG focuses on the real needs that are essential to prevent, de-escalate and survive conflicts.
Krav Maga was created to be used by everyone regardless of their physical calibre. You decide how much push yourself. It is required though to inform the School and Instructor of pre-existing injuries. We can adapt training to a more suitable mode for your circumstance. The class is challenging physically but everyone is free to work at the pace suitable to them. There will be students who train hard and we do permit that. There will also be students who have not done any physical activity for some time and are just taking it moderately to get back to it, we do support that. We accommodate various physical abilities. There will be fellow students with whom you can train with.
No there is none. We have accepted students as young as 10 (with parental and Instructor consent) and up into our regular classes. We do have students 50 and above.
A groin cup is encouraged so that the students can train safer & better since we teach our students to strike it. Basically it’s one of the major targets one can hit to fight an assailant efficiently.
You can join anytime. There is no need to wait. We have students joining in on a regular basis. The Instructor and even the higher level students will be able to help you get up to speed.
You can do more than that. Come over and have a free trial class.
