I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
If Carlsberg did Krav Maga, it would be Invictus Krav Maga.
Imagine a Krav Maga membership with a choice of classes to learn the principles and techniques of Krav Maga. Add a class to put those learnings into practice… at maximum intensity and full contact survival mode. If that’s not enough, how about a choice of weekly classes to cross train in kickboxing, boxing and wrestling. Training multiple disciplines 5 nights week!
We believe fundamentals are just that… FUNDAMENTALS. They should make up the bedrock of your self defence which is what we created with Carpe Diem Krav Maga. The mindset we adopt when learning Krav Maga is to attack the attacker, not wait to defend then attack. With that in mind we believe combat skills are an integral part of an effective Krav Maga practitioner which why we have partnered with one of the country’s premier MMA fighting camps in the UK: Prize Fighters. Housing fighters and champions at Bellator, Superkombat and UCMMA, they provide the complete array of MMA fighting disciplines. As an Invictus member, you’ll be able to supplement your Krav Maga training with combat disciplines from today’s MMA world.
Cross training in this fashion makes for a more complete Krav Maga practitioner…. this is something we put to the test in our Krav Maga combat class. We always remind our students of the lines between reality and sport, however we do that with intensity and safety in mind.
