One of the most commonly asked questions new members ask is how often should I train. Whilst this is a perfectly natural question to ask, it's really difficult to answer without a clear understanding of your goals and reasons for training. That said,lets's take a look.
"Your goals define the training required to achieve them"
1. What are your training goals?
What are you trying to achieve in your Krav Maga training? Your goals define the training required to achieve them. Want something new and challenging to do but don't want to impact on your time too much, you'd be a light recreational Kravist. If you aspire to reach the pinnacle of Krav Maga training, once weekly sessions won't get you there. Typically members fall into one of 3 categories often jumping between them over time.
The Light Recreational Kravist
Goals: Recreational training balanced with other activities or lifestyle demands - shifts etc. Want to learn Krav Maga but not driven by fast skill acquisition, or a strong desire to improve fitness.
We recommend: Once weekly training costed at £40 per month. This provides 8 hrs tuition a month.
The Recreational Kravist
Goal: Wants to learn some self-defence techniques or make more significant progress in Krav Maga or fitness training generally. This is balanced against limited time/lifestyle options. A Higher level of time/commitment required to achieve your goals more rapidly.
We recommend Twice weekly training. You would expect progression two to three times faster than with Once weekly training. Twice weekly training is the sweet spot for most people, you get the most results in the least amount of training time. Our twice weekly training tariff means you could train three or more sessions with no additional cost, however, the time and commitment required are more that of a serious recreational Kravist.
The Serious Recreational Kravist
Goal: Krav Maga is your main recreational and fitness pursuit. You are training at least three times a week and this is probably combined with additional seminars and camps. Progress is fast and a high level of skill is achieved within 10 or more months. You will probably train in Clifton plus another venue and supplement your training with additional fitness or gym work. Krav Maga becomes a significant part of your life as training time becomes significant.
As a result, we discount class fees for students who commit to more frequent or long-term training. We welcome causal students also but reward commitment to training with lower class prices.Because of this, we offer programmes designed to match the different needs of the casual user through to the more serious athlete. Programmes vary from Pay As You Go, to a 12-month contract with stages between. We are more than happy to help you choose any programme that suits you. We don't do pressure, we don't do sales, and we are happy for you to book a couple of Free sessions and make up your mind.
We offer Conditioning, skills-based Krav Maga coaching and general self-defence based Krav Maga classes. We also offer the Fight Programme which is a recreational sparring programme available to all abilities. We deliver authentic Krav Maga and nothing else. We do not mix training systems or dilute the Krav Maga in any way.
General Krav Maga Class
Krav Maga emphasises realistic, instinctive Self Defence training. Krav Maga deals with common street attacks, weapons and high-risk situations. Training is dynamic, fast to learn, and instinctive to apply. Krav Maga is the worlds most battle proven self-protection system and is taught to over 500 Military Units and Law Enforcement Agencies across the world. Our Krav Maga training includes the Fight Class for those interested in a sparring type class.
Krav Maga Bristol is one of the UKs' leading schools and has trained more Krav Maga Instructors than any other Krav Maga School in Europe.
We offer general Krav Maga classes on Mondays, and Wednesdays at 7:50 pm.
Krav Maga Skills Class
On Tuesdays, we offer a skill-based class focused on accelerated skills training. Tuesday classes focus on a specific skill set, drill down in detail and work on fast skill acquisition over the class. Krav Maga Skills class offers a more specific coaching environment delivered at a lower intensity but with a strong emphasise on improving skill and movement. Although Tuesday evenings are a great place for beginners to start, the classes work with all abilities on a pre-designated area and develop a skill to the point it can be pressure tested.
The fight programme is a dynamic and progressive sparring programme designed to improve dynamic striking and overall fighting skills. The fight programme cycles round stand up, clinch and ground fighting. The Fight programme is one of our most popular programmes focusing on skill development, movement, speed and agility. Contact is strictly controlled with provision made for those who want to fight at heavier levels of contact later in the programme. Your own protective equipment is needed to participate.
We offer the Krav Maga Skills Classes on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm
Combat conditioning Class
We use the same methods to condition our Kravists as used by professional fight programmes in both MMA or boxing. Conditioning classes are a mixture of movement training, pad work, High-Intensity Interval training and Speed, Agility and Quickness drills.
We offer Combat conditioning on Monday and Wednesdays at 7 pm.
