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.
Picture a class of everyday people motivated and having fun whilst training in Krav Maga… learning skills that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. 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.

I absolutely love the camaraderie of the whole club. It doesn’t matter what area you attend, you are always welcome. We are a Krav family.” Laura Rees

The atmosphere and people are great. There’s no sense of superiority and the instructors are all really down to earth and are happy to spend time helping each student individually.” Will Helliwell

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

I feel that I’ve learnt some new skills over the past 8 months, but I’m only at the start of my Krav journey. There’s years of fun ahead learning more of the basics and hopefully moving on to advanced techniques when I’m ready!Mark Harvey

The people you train with make Carpe Diem what it is, people go out of their way to help – both students and instructors and encourage you to push yourself as far as possible.Paul Cawsey

What I like most about training at Carpe Diem are the the Instructors and the people I train with.Mark Mathers

Trials @ Carpe Diem


It is important to know what we offer meets your needs; it starts with you. Understanding the reasons why you want to train in Krav Maga is very important to us, as it marks the starting point of your self defence journey. It will be our job to help keep you on the right path, adapting to the changing horizon whilst remembering why you began this journey in the first place.

We want to make sure you are comfortable in our training environment. An environment that’s fun and relaxed; fostering learning without intimidation. There is only one way to find out, and that is to experience it first-hand. Most of our students achieve that comfort level in their first lesson.

During your trial you’ll get a good feel for our weekly 90-minute classes. You will get familiar with our class format, teaching methodology and the principles of Krav Maga taught by the IKMF. Our trials are often attended by a handful of beginners, so you won’t be alone. Our instructors and senior team will spend time with you to cover the basic principles of Krav Maga. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about Krav Maga and our club… we encourage you to do so.

We will reconnect with you after your trial to gather your feedback, share with you how our club operates, discuss membership options that best suite you and where applicable gradings and progression. Most importantly we would like to understand how we can help you achieve your goals.
