About kma

      At KMA we believe that everyone should have the basic skills to protect themselves and their loved ones, with the option to become highly skilled with further training. Our classes are suitable for persons of all ages (starting from age 5) and all fitness levels. All techniques taught are governed by the following overriding philosophies : 
  • Techniques must work by anyone against anyone else, regardless of size and strength of attacker and regardless of size and strength of the victim
  • Techniques must be effective and implementable in a high stressed situation, understanding the physiological changes that your body undergoes during high stress/adrenaline dump situation.
  • Techniques must be easy to learn in a short space of time and easy to remember afterwards.
  • Techniques adhere to and facilitate the ultimate objective of making an effective escape.
Based on the life and professional experiences of our instructor cohortat at KMA, we don’t only teach self defence. You will learn skills across our full Model of Personal Safety including techniques and strategies to avoid becoming a victim of crime through increased situational awareness, good decision making, identifying pre-attack indicators and more. At KMA we teach the serious skills and ability to defend yourself against an attacker who is intent on causing you harm. However, this is a taught in a friendly, ego-free environment.
Our students are our family and our teaching culture is one of being friendly, caring and nurturing while imparting the necessary skills. All students are expected to display our 3 main character attributes when stepping onto the mats.
  • Safety
  • Respect
  • The Will to Learn
Come in for a trial and we guarantee that you will learn practical, effective techniques from your very first session and leave with an increased ability to make an effective escape and get home safe to your family.

A Welcoming Gym

At KMA, we endeavour to make our classes available to everyone. This is why we have implemented a number of initiatives to make classes more accessible regardless of any challenges a student might have. 

Empowering Women

We recognise that many women in particular can find stepping into a self defence class a dauntingexperience. For this reason, we offer a weekly women’s only class to provide an environment that some women may find more comfortable. These classes can provide a stepping stone into our main beginner classes by giving women an opportunity to learn the fundamentals and gain confidence before transitioning into the co-ed beginner classes. To learn more about these sessions contact us or read on here.
