Krav Maga & Politics
Whether it’s organisational politics, (‘my association/style/instructor is better than yours’), or International politics, (‘my country/religion is better than yours’ – we don’t do them.
Politics detract from training and integrity. We are simply a British organisation of Kravists, with no political affiliations in the UK or abroad. British Krav Maga encourages it’s members and Instructors to crosstrain, in other systems
We believe every person has the right to be able to protect themselves. We welcome people of all ages (over 10), and all abilities to train. Our mission is to equip as many people as possible, with the skills necessary to protect themselves or their loved ones should the need arise. We welcome everybody from the young and relitavley fit to the to older, less fit and inexperienced. Nervous beginners are most welcome.
We recognise that commercial success is a necessity for growth and evolution at both a personal and organisational level, but not at the price of your values or integrity. Consequently we charge a fair rate for a professional standard of training and coaching. Profits are a byproduct of of good coaching, not the cause of it.
Ethics in business and in training
We reserve the right to refuse to train individuals whose morals or motivations cause us concern. Our remit is to provide ordinary people with the ability to protect themselves. It is not to make better trained thugs, bullies or criminals.
Our national growth has been sustained by fair and ethical treatment of both students and instructors. Consequently, we don’t use long contracts, high prices or franchising.
