Hear From Our Students

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 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.

I stumbled upon Global Martial Arts University by looking for online classes to broaden my close quarter combat. I found that they taught Krav Maga. Instantly I got excited because I have always wanted to study this, but do to the travel time to the closest place It was not possible to study this. My excited was met with apprehension due to the fact it was an online school and with a monthly fee. So I did what every practitioner does and I asked questions. A matter of fact question after question until I was satisfied that the instructors were legit and the program was solid.

I was very pleased that the response for my questions were very timely. I mean some were within hours of asking which I found amazing. I have spoke with the instructors and they never hesitate to answer any and all questions.

I have been studying Krav Maga a little over a month. It’s a great workout for me and my family. Yes I said family. My sons are my training partners and my middle son has a focus of gaining rank as well. With GMAU it easy for him to gain rank with me because he’s my training partner and instead of creating a new account just for him he’s allowed to use my dashboard for lessons at a fraction of the cost.

I am looking forward to this journey that I am on and cant wait to test.

As a student in Krav Maga both only in a dojo and GMAU i find the instructions clear and easy to follow. The testing with three angle videos are a good way to really verify if people are learning or not. In class is awesome as you get a chance to work with others but if one has a dedicated partner definitely would recommend GMAU.

Its a demanding course, but for every step you take you grow as a person and student. The setup with the films is great and also the assignments. My instructor Dustin Koppel is great, challenge me and set high standards for my tests.
