On behalf of our instructors and members, we thank you for stopping by. Hopefully you’ll invest the time to visit us at our headquarters in Fulham. There is nothing like experiencing first-hand our friendly, fun-packed learning environment by booking a no-obligation trial lesson.
Krav Maga (Hebrew for Contact Combat) is a practical and realistic system which teaches you how to prevent, avoid, deter, or deal with all kinds of violent threats and attacks, including those with weapons. Krav Maga educates people in the subjects of self defence, self protection, fighting and combat skills, as well as skills to defend others. Krav Maga is taught in a unique and comprehensive manner and was developed in Israel under realistic conditions.
What we teach?
Learn to spot threats before they turn into attacks.
Pre-emptive Attack Best form of defence is attack. Train on what to do and when to do it.
Know how to assertively deescalate volatile situations.
Prepare your stamina and adrenalin for intense encounters.
Increase Self Confidence
The more confident you are the less likely you’ll fight.
Instinctive reactions require regular training to be effective.
The more you train, the less you have to prove. You lose the ego.
Real life scenarios require management of adrenalin under stress.
Release stress from your work and your life.
Live life to the max without fear.

We are stubbornly clear about our mission at Carpe Diem. You’ll never feel intimidated or physically vulnerable, in fact, we do not tolerate nor welcome individuals with negative intentions. Our ‘ego-free’ team atmosphere is contagious and conducive to learning self defence. Just ask any of our members or parents of the children who train with us. Maybe you are looking to improve your fitness and lose weight, or you would like to increase your self-confidence and your levels of awareness. Perhaps learning practical self defence skills to protect yourself and your family has now become more of a priority to you in an ever-changing world. Whatever your personal goals are, we are here to help you achieve them… many of our members have already. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, athletic or out-of-shape; you will immediately feel at home in our club.

“Krav Maga is not just self defence, its a way of life. It changes the way you do your things and you go about in your daily life. You become aware of your surroundings, not paranoid, just aware. And you behave accordingly in order to prevent you ending up in dangerous situations.” Ana Baptista
