Hear From Our Students

This is a great course!
I have been studying martial arts and defensive tactics for 35 years and have learned a ton from this course. I wish I would have found this course years ago. I love the online format. It give me the freedom to work at my on pace at my own schedule. These instructors are super knowledgeable.

Aaron Iacino
Krav Maga Student

My name is Kelly and this is my story:
I started browsing online in search of a good martial arts academy, since I had been training in jiu jitsu, kickboxing, karate and mixed martial arts for some years already. I had also become immensely interested in Krav Maga as a discipline, so I started looking in my area, extending to far and beyond and I couldn't find an appropriate Krav Maga training facility to meet my specific needs.
I continued to browse the internet because I really fancied this new fighting style that I had found. I watched a lot of YouTube videos on Krav Maga and I really wanted to start training Krav seriously.
Then one day I stumbled on the Global Martial Arts University and the Krav Maga home study course. It was exactly what I was looking for. What really attracted me was the method of studying and training with the videos and then filming and submitting ones own video to the instructor in order to grade. I was really impressed because the system was user friendly, allowing for a flexible schedule and it would work perfectly for me.
The only drawback that I had was that, living in a small city in South Africa, I thought that I wouldn't be able to pay for the course since I don't have a credit card. However, Mr. Hodge was really accommodating and he advised me regarding alternative methods of payment, for which I will always be grateful. So I experienced first hand, even before my enrolment, the personal touch that is so important to all of us as students and this has never stopped in all the time that I have been with GMAU as a student.
I have now been with GMAU for almost two years. I am about to grade for my blue belt in Krav Maga and I am really enjoying the videos with instructors Mr. Koppel and Mr. South, whom I respect highly. Mr. Koppel, specifically, is my instructor and he grades my work and gives me feedback, as quickly as possible after my gradings.
Whenever I submit a question or an assignment or a belt grading, Mr Koppel acts immediatelty and I receive my answer or feedback within a few days. Mr. Koppel corrects my technique by filming himself doing the technique on someone and he also corrects my mistakes step by step explaining where I went wrong and what is expected of me. I then re-film those techniques and he re-films himself stating whether he is happy or not and if I passed or not.
I also love the way that the GMAU Krav Maga course is laid out. The videos are very clear and distinct and every technique is explained in detail in the lessons. Then there are classes that follow the lessons. Each class has fun ways of training and excellent drills to train. I feel as if I am there in the class with them. In the lessons not only did I learn Krav Maga techniques but also a lot of life skills, including awareness.
The instructors go out of their way to make the classes interesting and as practical as possible
The GMAU Krav Maga course which is globaly recognised and internationally accredited has also benefited me greatly since the standards are high. This has made me a much better Krav Maga practitioner than I had ever imagined.
The course is also very affordable and it has been every cent worth it.
I highly recommend GMAU to anyone who would like to study krav maga.
They really are the best!

My name is Josh Brady. I am 30 years old and a black belt in traditional Karate, which I teach as an instructor at a school. I wanted to learn a new style of martial arts, particularly one that is very street self-defense focused. After a lot of research, I decided on Krav Maga. Unfortunately, being from a small city, there were no schools around under an hour’s drive and for a decent price for lessons. Enter Total Krav Maga from Global Martial Arts University. This course is FANTASTIC! I had three goals in mind; 1) lose weight and get back into shape, 2) learn something new, 3) gain new confidence with a new style and in turn help me be a better teacher. I can honestly say that from signing up a few months ago, I am on my way with all three of those.

When you sign up, you are assigned an instructor. All of the instructors that have taught the classes are great teachers. My instructor, Mr. Koppel, has been fantastic on giving feedback that is easy to understand and correct. The dashboard on the website is easy to navigate and very user friendly. It is also easy to find things to review. The classes themselves are top notch! I am never disappointed when I get done with a class because the info is given in such a practical way where you can visualize the situations to where you would need to use the techniques. The warm ups will make you work hard! I will do the warm ups a couple of times a week with my training to help get my body used to being tired and still being able to fight.

One of my fellow instructors from my Karate school signed up with me and we train weekly together. We always look forward to our Krav days as we are able to train together for 2-3 hours at a time practicing what we have learned throughout the week. If you want to step up your martial arts training or you have never stepped into a dojo before in your life, this course is for you. Anyone can do it! As an added bonus, you WILL get into shape. I have not been disappointed and will recommend this course to everyone. I promise you won’t regret it.

Professionalism. Experience. Dedication. Attention to Detail. The aforementioned words come to mind when I think of GMAU instructors. I have been training in Krav Maga since 2013. For the first few years, I trained at a Krav Maga Worldwide facility. Although the instructor was excellent, the drive was too far and expensive for me. As a result, I decided to train via GMAU since early 2018 also because I travel extensively for work, so I wanted to have the option of training while on the road.

I was apprehensive of training online; however, after sampling a full course for one month, I decided to enroll in GMAU because the instructors are very well versed; speak well; know how to actually teach — the overall product was excellent (classes, journal, testing, and lessons). I appreciate that instructional videos are brief and are centered on breaking down the techniques. I appreciate the formula: demo technique, slow motion, break down, and common mistakes.

Almost one year ago, around the same time I joined GMAU, I joined another Krav school. The techniques, in my opinion, does not conform to traditional Krav techniques; hard to follow and retain retain. The techniques are also “martial artsy.” This is not Krav Maga. Out of frustration, I have decided to simply train via GMAU because they stay true to tradition and modified techniques for modern society — threats today and how we handle them are different that the 1940’s.

I personally feel that I receive great instruction at an affordable price. The only low for me is training by myself. I prefer to train with someone. However, I realized that having access to all of the techniques, I am able to constantly train whenever I want. Since dropping out of the other Krav schools, I made it a point to sponsor a partner who is committed to Krav as much as I am.

I feel extremely happy to be an GMAU student!

My name is Jacqui and I have been a student with GMAU for over a year now.

When you get to a certain age it's extremely hard to walk into a dojo. I did try, and the sensei asked me how many children I was enrolling. It never entered his head that I was the student. I guess that is what happens when you get to a certain age and size😂

That being said I really love the freedom of being able to train at home at a time and pace that suits me. I work long hours and it's great to be able to train at a time when most dojos would be closed. You can decide how much or how little you want to do. When you are tired you can do a short work out or a flexibility routine, on the good days you can do two classes.

The courses are very well done, with each technique explained and demonstrated in easy to digest sections. One can watch the same lesson again and again, which is handy if you don't quite get it the first time around. The classes are a great work-out, varied and fun. The training never gets stale as the GMAU instructors are always thinking and coming up with novel ideas on how to train, new classes, seminars on interesting topics like carjacking etc

So far for me the biggest highlight was getting my first belt online. I realised that it could be done without the formality of a dojo, and that really gave me a boost.

My only frustration has been trying to find someone locally to train with. A lot of the techniques, especially in Krav Maga, work better with a partner. What I do is Skype my sister who is on another continent, and the two of us share our screen on Skype and do classes together. There is a lot of laughter and we keep each other motivated.

So far I am fitter, healthier and have learnt some amazing self defence techniques since joining the GMAU. It's fun, a good workout, and the instructors are very experienced and always available to advise, correct, and encourage. Feedback is always given gently and constructively, and has always motivated me to try harder rather than give up.

It's not an easy route to a black belt, it's hard work and as a home student you need to be very disciplined, but it's well worth it.

I could not praise the GMAU and the instructors enough. Thank you all for the hard work you put in. It's much appreciated.
