Summer Holiday Closure

Greetings all,

Just a quick note to confirm holiday dates for your diaries.

Our last class will be on the 29th July.

No Classes 5/8, 12/8 or 19/8.

First class back will be the 26/8.

May look at doing a Summer Krav BBQ on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon when I am back round mine, bring food and booze and I'll cook it (and drink it!). Let me know who would be up for that and we can start looking at dates/arranging.

See you all Wednesday

Train Hard......Fight Easy


Tuesday, 14 July 2009


UKM took on the might of KSAR (Kent Search & Rescue) and all they could throw at us on Saturday, thank you to Juan, Charlie & Chris who made up the team.

We had a great time, climbing high, rescuing bodies from underground cave mazes, pulling a screaming pilot out of a burning plane that had hit a car and numerous other exercises.

A few photos attached for those we left behind.

All though we didn't win it, there is always next year when I am sure we will enter a couple of teams.

£400 raised for this worthwhile charity.

Train hard......Fight Easy.....Keep searching!

The True Spirit of Urban Krav Maga


Tonight's training is dedicated to the guys I have "hijacked" and called Team Krav- Brian, Chris, Lee and Gareth.

Despite appalling weather conditions they all summited Mont Blanc, a two day event has now tuned into 5, having to spend an extra day up the mountain before they could reach the top and then being caught in Blizzards on the return, resulting in them having to build a snow cave and survive a night out out on the mountain.

It resulted in two of the team eventually having to be choppered off suffering with snow blindness, but could of course have ended up far worse.

Their fitness, determination and never give up attitude go them through one of the most extreme tests of survival, that few of us will ever have to endure.

Well done to all and look forward to seeing you back soon.

Meanwhile Team Krav gathers again this Saturday on a slgihtly less dangerous task to undertake a rigorous days testing involving search and rescue and survival techniques (shame it wasn't the weekend before last might have helped on the mountain as Chris is in both teams)

Myself, Charlie Chris & Juan will do our best to uphold the honour of team Krav and win the event.

Hope to see you all tonight
