Krav Maga is a contact based system of self-defence that teaches you practical skills, techniques and tactics, while improving your physical fitness and mental toughness. 

Krav Maga is designed with the body’s natural responses to danger in mind, which makes it relatively easy to pick up and learn, and useful under the real pressure of stressful situations - everything from de-escalating heated exchanges to violent attacks.

Lead Instructor Al Natrins is an experienced, dedicated instructor, affiliated with and certified through Krav Maga Global (KMG) - Krav Mayhem is the only KMG club in Birmingham and Solihull! - the only real choice in professional Krav Maga organisations in the world today.  KMG is the best of the best, just like Krav Mayhem!

Krav Maga works!  Our Birmingham and Solihull students who have had to rely on their training have survived everything from assaults, car jacking, muggings, stabbings and even home invasions.

Al began training in krav maga in 2009, after looking for the most effective self-defence system he could find. It did not take him long to settle on krav maga! 


Impressed with the simplicity of krav maga, Al quickly saw how successful it was to use under pressure, in the heat of the moment situations where you would need to use self-defence.  He found it really enjoyable too, both as a system of self-defence and a way to keep active and fit!

Al took the plunge and travelled to Prague in 2013 and attended the intensive three and a half week Krav Maga Global instructor course.  After passing with flying colours, he returned to the UK and made the decision to teach krav maga full-time, where he has been successfully teaching busy classes and private sessions since!

Bringing substantial expertise as a fitness professional, Al uses the most effective methods available to bring out the best in his students. 


Al understands what it takes to help lots people, just like you  - to look good, feel great and perform their best when training krav maga.

“Krav maga is great self-defence, I love teaching it, and most importantly it has kept myself and my students safe from harm when we have had to rely on it!”
