Benefits Of Cross Krav Maga

Self Defence System

Our unique self defence system is based on the principles of Krav Maga but has been adapted to incorporate other techniques and styles of martial arts and self defence systems, which when properly applied, helps to reduce the odds between you and any potential attacker.

Survive the Attacker

We do not teach martial arts, though some of the principles are from martial arts you need a completely different mind set to survive a committed attacker, we show you how to switch from prey to predator, to fight back with all tools available to us, and yes that means fighting dirty, our goal is to get out and escape and survive, with any means possible.

Our Training System

Our CROSS Krav Maga training is accessible to everyone, from self defence novices to experienced martial artists. Our classes are run at various venues across the Sussex areas and are a great way of improving your confidence and fitness, while teaching you how to defend yourself in wide variety of situations.

CKM Principles and Foundations

The beauty of the CROSS Krav Maga system is that it teaches key survival skills based on variables, not simply a rigid set of techniques.

Our students learn a set of self defence principles that are the foundation of everything we teach and from there, we promote a flexible approach to achieving and focusing on certain common objectives in virtually all scenario’s, therefore making it easier to learn and immediately effective than many other systems out there.

What’s the difference?

Many times I have been asked, what is the difference between our system and traditional Krav Maga. I was an Instructor with a large Krav Maga Organisation and found the technique driven system had flaws, yes I love some of the traditional Krav but felt that the system is getting very sports orientated and not so self-defence based.

We teach a set of principles first and foremost before techniques, the reason for this is we want our instructors and  students to have a flexible approach to their self protection.

  • Just to say you are by far the best instructor I’ve had (having studied a variety of systems over the years) and really appreciate the effort you are going to to make sure that what you teach us isn’t bullsh*t when stood up against a real situation. Very excited where the club is going and look forward to seeing it grow.

  • After practicing Tae-kwondo years ago I wanted to get back into doing some sort of self defense, I wanted and looked for a realistic self defense in Brighton that was applicable to real life situations and Krav Maga Sussex offers me exactly that self defense i was looking for. Keith is a great Krav Maga instructor and knows his stuff. This is a great self defense to learn for both women and men and in the short time I’ve been doing it I have come to learn so much. My only regret is I didn’t look into doing Krav Maga years ago. Classes are informative and constructive and the people are a great bunch.
