Goal setting is a very important life skill. You should regularly be setting targets as a way of self-improvement in all aspects of your life. This month’s blog will take a look at goal setting in Krav Maga but a lot of these processes are transferable to daily life. Self- improvement will always require setting…
Most experienced Krav Maga practitioners will tell you that there is very little point in all female classes as women have to be able to defend themselves against people who are bigger and stronger than themselves.

TDKM’s first P-Weekend was run by Rune Lind (Expert level 4) and Natasha Naccarato (Expert level 1) from the KMG instructor team. I had heard that Rune was a fantastic instructor and I’d previously met the kick-ass Natasha a few months ago in Israel so knew it’d be a great weekend.
We soon settled into day 1 with some team games before going through the basics of scanning. Scanning always gets brought up in class and gradings as something we don’t do often enough. This session was great to drill it into our heads and made it much more natural to continue scanning throughout the weekend.
The venue in Paisley was perfect, training in a hot club with limited space really does change the way you approach situations. The floor being sticky or slippery, the lighting and low visibility are usually the norm in a nightclub but it isn’t until the Krav Maga mindset is applied that you really start to think about how these impact violent or aggressive situations. This event promised to show us that and it delivered.
