Hear From GMAU Students

I've studied martial arts previously, starting in kung fu and eventually doing MMA for awhile. GMAU was the first time I've got to do more traditional and formal training while earning ranks in a martial arts. I chose shotokan karate because I was always interested in learning karate. The set up is wonderful. It's super convenient for people like me who have a child/children and a job. I can train on my own time at my own pace. The videos are really well done with tons of tips and examples on how to properly preform your technique, as well other students are able to comment and commune back and forth so that we help each other along the way. Most importantly for me, is the instructors themselves. I can say with all honesty I have messaged sensei Michael and sensei Jon several times since starting my journey, and they always reply with the best advice they can give. Particularly sensei Jon, who has helped me tremendously on the side with more of the personality, mental and spiritual aspect of martial arts. He's really took the time to reply with video messages and help me get my mind more at peace while I work on my body to further assist me to one day being a karate master myself. GMAU is a great thing for those interested in martial arts but may not have time to devote to local classes

Shaun Adams
Shotokan Karate 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.

Jacqueline Glisson
Krav Maga Student

My name is Kelly and I live in South Africa. I would like to thank you for the
opportunity to learn and train Krav Maga through the GMAU by training at home. I
had been searching high and low for months, trying to find a company that teaches
Krav Maga and one day, while browsing through the internet I came across your
“Black belt at home” Krav Maga course. I was extremely excited to start because the
material in the advertisement was laid out professionally and in an easy to
understand manner. Being in South Africa, I had a problem with the rand / dollar
exchange and I thought it would be impossible to enroll with the Global Martial Arts
University, but Mr Hodge assisted me with my payment and within a few days I was
part of the GMAU organisation.

I am about to grade for my orange belt in Krav Maga and I really appreciate the
material where I can see every technique executed in detail from my computer
screen and then I practice these techniques at home and in a gym with my training
partner. I appreciate the fact that I can do the assignments and my instructor (Mr.
Koppel) can evaluate me and check my progress and highlight any technique that I
need to improve on before doing the particular belt grading. Also, I have quick
responses to enquiries with feedback and very helpful advice from my instructor.

The material keeps on improving regarding new techniques that are being added to
the old curriculum for the various belts in Krav Maga. It is fantastic that I can
message my instructor anytime I want and he always replies to my messages. Once
I have submitted my grading video, my instructor talks to me personally via video
clip, advising me what points I need to work on.

I enjoy the classes. They are well structured, clear and enjoyable. A lot of
imagination obviously went into structuring the various Krav Maga drills (person on
person and person on bags) related to the combatives. The lessons and the classes
are well designed with a fantastic curriculum. I know exactly what is expected of me
and what I must do for a particular belt.

I highly recommend this course for anyone who enjoys working with highly qualified
instructors and who would like to learn techniques according to global standards
from home.

There are a lot of bo staff videos on youtube and I know people who use those to learn the staff. But I was looking for something that was more systematic. Something that would progress through a wide array of techniques and progressively build up from the basic techniques to the advanced. Something that would teach you both "the how" as well as "the why" behind the techniques. I wanted a program where someone would evaluate my progress and give feedback so I can objectively improve. You will never get that from watching youtube videos. GMAU Bo staff program is exactly what I was looking for. I have been training with GMAU for around 16 months.

Cyle Nelson
Ultimate Bo 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!
