Rise Up Krav Maga to nurture the warrior within, enhance your self-esteem, and take your self-defence to the next level. With our variety of classes for all skill levels and age groups, everyone is welcome.
Rise Up Krav Maga was founded in early 2018 with one goal in mind: to give our students the best, most rewarding self-defence training experience.
Rise Up Krav Maga is an affiliate school of the international organisation, Krav Maga Global (KMG) and is located in one of Sydney's southern suburbs, Sans Souci which reflects the vibrant energy of the area. Our passionate and dedicated head instructor, Yanni, runs all classes personally and aims to empower his students to achieve their goals.
We provide practical and reality-based self-defence lessons, suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. We have members as young as 4 years old right through to senior adults. Each class is adapted to suit a variety of physical capabilities and to ensure all participants receive an interactive lesson and an understanding of the Israeli self-defence system, Krav Maga.
We offer self-defence programs tailored specifically for primary and secondary schools as part of the sport or physical education curriculum. We also provide tactical training to law enforcement agencies such as police and security and offer self-defence training to corporate businesses and large organisations. This is not only a great team-building activity but the team has the opportunity to learn life-saving self-defence skills needed to manage a threatening situation.
Rest assured lessons will have you feeling energised, fit, confident and motivated for the next training session all whilst training in a safe, fun and friendly environment.

Actions show your spirit."

WHAT IS KRAV MAGA?
Krav Maga means "contact combat" and is a tactical self defence system that can be applied to real life threatening situations. It is the leading system of its kind in the world, known for its practical and realistic techniques and tactics for avoiding, preventing, deterring, or otherwise handling all types of violent confrontations.
First developed as a military combat system by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) in 1948, Krav Maga has since been adapted to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement officers and security personnel all around the world. It is now globally recognized as the most comprehensive self defence system that has a focus on real life situations.
It consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, boxing and wrestling, along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga encourages students to avoid confrontation. If this is impossible or unsafe, it promotes finishing a fight as quickly as possible. Attacks are aimed at the most vulnerable parts of the body, and training drills provide maximum safety to students by the use of protective equipment and the use of reasonable force.
In 2010, Eyal Yanilov, Imi's closest assistant, established Krav Maga Global (KMG), a global infrastructure that would train students and enable them to rise up the ranks, eventually becoming instructors themselves if they wished to do so. The organisation was designed to provide a structured format to Krav Maga whilst maintaining a strict standard of training.
KMG’s Krav Maga system is continuing to be developed by Master Eyal, adapting it to meet the changing needs of civilians of all ages, military units, law enforcement officers and security personnel. It is an evolving system, which provides novel solutions for dynamic situations.
