“Hey Al, I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how much of an awesome group you have. I've done a fair amount of different activities and never have I felt so welcomed by a group, there's no nastiness or bitching just genuinely nice people, so I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying lessons.

“I've trained with Al for just over a year now. He is great at what he does and is very supportive of his students. Al will take the time to work with you no matter what level you are. I couldn't envisiage training with another instructor. My krav journey so far has been an enjoyable experience and that's down to Al. Come to Krav Mayhem!! I would definitely recommend."

“It’s hard where to start as there are so many positives about Krav Maga Mayhem The main thing for me is about the safety of yourself, rather than going to a club to train and think you are invincible after a few sessions. Al the instructor is incredible, he will listen to your requirements, assess your skill level whether you are a complete novice or if you have many years of experience through other self defence styles etc Al will help teach Krav Maga at all levels. Not only does it teach you essential self defence life skills it helps boost your confidence, your health and as an added bonus for myself helps you lose weight and maintain a positive attitude towards your diet. I have been instructed via Al for several years and cannot speak more highly of his attention to detail and methods of training, just awesome.. Give it a go, you will meet great fellow students without attitude who will I’m sure become your friends after just a few sessions, don’t be put off thinking your not fit enough or you have no previous training, it makes no difference at all at Krav Maga Mayhem Al and the students will all make you feel at home from day 1..👍"

“These classes are great - they're the right balance of building fitness and technique. You learn so many different methods on how to respond if you find yourself in a vulnerable/intimidating situation, in a controlled way. Al is knowledgeable, approachable and explains/demonstrates the different techniques and responses clearly. He's supportive and encouraging and makes the classes fun! It's helped to build my confidence and feel part of a friendly community of people, who have a variety of experience. Would highly recommend!​"

“The classes are a great way to build confidence and let off steam. Not only have an experienced teacher but a great team to work with, everyone is really welcoming. Classes give you a range of practical guidance on situations that may occur, how to avoid and when to react if needed. Definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for self defence classes. Al is patient and helps you to ease into the training at a pace comfortable for you. Very energising classes, lots of fun.​"

“I have been training with Al from Krav Maga Mayhem since August and I have been very impressed indeed. Al is patient and understanding and always finds a way to get the best from everyone in the class. If you are looking to learn self defence or simply just to do something to improve your fitness then give him a ring or pop along on and join in..."
James M

“Al is a great teacher, engaging and enthusiastic. Build confidence, learn new skills. Having joined, I haven't looked back since, it's literally the best time I spend all week. Can't speak highly enough of Al and the rest of the guys I train with, everyone has been so welcoming and supportive.”​

“As a family we have been training privately with Al for two years. He’s committed, cares about his students and knows his stuff..if you want an excellent Krav Maga instructor go to Al!”​
Karen K

“I have been traing with Al now for around 2 years. He is a genuinely good bloke with vast amounts of knowledge in not just Krav but all aspects of the fight game. He is easy to get on with and is also great when training my children. I would recommend both Al and Krav Mayhem to anyboady who wants to learn real life self defence and attacks or even just to get in shape and have fun at same time.”​
Sean H

“Al is extremely professional and continuously listens and identifies the best way to achieve your goals. I have always found him to be dedicated and motivating. He encourages you to push yourself whilst at the same time understanding your limits.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Al and believe he is one of the most caring and committed instructors you could wish to train under.”​

"After spending 6 months training one on one with Al I have no hesitation in giving his tuition my emphatic recommendation.  I learnt useful skills in session one and since have progressed significantly.  Al is a great teacher ensuring you receive in depth tuition, frantically improving your skill set for Krav Maga and indeed overall fitness levels.  Thank you Al!"

Andrew M

''Learning Krav Maga has been one of the most positive and beneficial experiences I have ever had! I have gained a combination of skills, confidence building,improvement in fitness whilst also learning how to defend myself in the face of difficult situations in a justifiable manner. Learning privately has allowed me to develop these skills more rapidly which in turn has meant faster development. The training is awesome alongside fantastic knowledge from the instructor! Brilliant value for money and I would recommend Krav Maga to anyone wanting to develop themselves!''

Lisa M

"I am happy and proud to call Al my instructor, and I guarantee that you will too.  Al makes for a fantastic instructor simply by setting a superb example to follow. Al is able to inspire, excite, challenge and engage those who train with him, I cannot recommend training with Al highly enough!"

Mike B

"I’ve always wanted to do some kind of martial art but life, work and being mildly nervous about joining this kind of class full of strangers has always gotten in the way. I finally made the plunge and i’m really glad I did!

It was hard at the beginning, both motivation and body were far too used to the sofa and TV. Within a month, with a lot of positive encouragement from Al, I was already significantly fitter. Now I can really see the benefits both in terms of health, confidence and overall enthusiasm. 

Yep there are tough days where i’m tired or want to stay in but the support and friendliness of the teachers and students is always enough to leave me grinning at the end of a class."

Ant J

"My son (13) and I (50) have been doing 9 months of private lessons with Al. Al is a fantastic instructor who allows both of us to train and progress at our own pace. Sessions are well structured, challenging but fun; we always look forward to our next session! I have no hesitation in recommending Al to anybody interested in learning Krav Maga!"
