Why BAKM Krav Maga?

Here’s just a few good reasons

Founded in 1999 we are the leading Independent Krav Maga Club in London, UK. Unhindered we can develop & teach a more relevant British form of Krav Maga.

We have our own a dedicated Krav Maga studio near Baker St London & conduct regular group classes in Kensington & Pimlico London with Intensive courses held in Vauxhall London.

We have some of the highest trained Instructors in the UK ensuring a proficient & safe training environment.

We welcome both Guys & Girls to provide a realistic mix of training & education for both sexes.

Unlike other clubs we also run Seminars & Events that enhance and/or compliment Krav Maga Skills.

Although self defence is a serious subject, you won’t find us taking ourselves too seriously. Classes whilst educational are also designed to be fun & to get you fit.

What our Members Say

  • Just finished the 5-Day Intensive course which really kick starts you into KM and is a great workout, different to your usual gym routine, too. The course is very efficient as mistakes are instantly detected and corrected and John is a great teacher.Sandro Oswald
  • I started a short while ago, but I have loved every class I have been to so far. The fitness is intense, but enjoyable. I have found the instructors to be very approachable and friendly guys who ensure that everyone receives correct and safe training… Well worth getting involved in!Cahir Muldoon
  • I have learned a lot in a relatively short period of time and feel so much more confident in my (albeit still learner) ability to defend myself. I could not recommend the British Academy of Krav Maga more highly.Matt Cockcroft
  • This is just a FANTASTIC school. John Aldcroft is a first rate chief instructor and has a superb team working with him. They seem to cope with a whole range of ability levels and will develop your skills, fitness and confidence. The school’s flexible in terms of the amount of time you can commit to it. It’s also very friendly and great fun.Vince Turner
  • Great fun, quality people.Initially I felt pretty lost however after I started attending twice a week my understanding of the basics quickly grew.The instructors are informative, approachable & always willing to help, especially with the smaller technical aspects.Sean P
  • Not only I am learning a lot and I am still surprised when many times my muscle memory is better than my celebral one, but I also found an amazing environment when people can fight one another without being a danger.Thanks John for your amazing academy!Ludovica Pianon
  • All the instructors are well trained and always giving constructive and progressive feedback on your personal skill level.Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get fit and learn to feel confident in defending yourself in tricky situations.Richard Keogh
