In March, due to recent Active Shooter events in New Zealand, we ran a simulation exercise at Valiant Krav Maga where students were first taught the 3 Basic Principles of responding to such a situation, and then exposed to a simulated Active Shooter Event to test their responses and consolidate what they had learnt. The following video demonstrates...
April Intake - Krav Maga Classes
We had a great intake of students last Monday at our training venue in Aspley. We spent the night first learning the basic strikes, then modifying the strikes such that they would work for any attacker, particularly for people resistant to pain. This included strikes to areas of the body which would elicit the preferred response from the aggressor, and which only depends on the physiology of the body and not any sensory organs. Dr Pillar Eng (Expert Level 1) taught the class which was enjoyed by all. A few photos are provided below for viewing.
Ground Fighting Course 2019
A three-day intensive course on ground fighting was held from Friday, March 22 to Sunday, March 24 at Adamstown, NSW. The course was taught by Rune Lind, a KMG Expert Level 5 Instructor, MMA Trainer and former Cage Fighter from Norway, and was extremely informative. Participants were provided with tools used in the competitive sports world to improve their fighting skills. Even for those participants with a background in the ground combat sports, the course was still very valuable.
Participants were tested to their limits in drills and countless rounds of competitive sparring, and were provided with training tips on how to integrate the skills they had learnt into their training routine. The feedback from all attendees was extremely positive, with many wanting to repeat the course.
Below are a few photos from the course for your enjoyment.
Car Jacking Seminar 2019
On Saturday 16 February, an Anti-Car Jacking Seminar was held at Molendinar on the Gold Coast. The seminar covered striking in confined spaces, manoeuvring and environmental awareness around a vehicle, safe ingress and egress of a vehicle as well as defences from threats and assaults both inside and outside of a vehicle!
Things became more interesting once knives and handguns were introduced into the fray! We workshopped techniques and tactics to defend and escape from a seated position with and without the seatbelt fastened, as well as how to neutralise an armed attack from all directions and angles (see photos below).
All participants greatly enjoyed the seminar and are keen to return for further such seminars.
Krav Maga Seminar 2019 - Aspley, BRISBANE
Held by Dr Pillar Eng - Expert Level Krav Maga Instructor
Our New Year Krav Maga Seminar was held on Saturday, 19 January at Aspley State School, Brisbane. It was well-attended by students and newcomers alike.
In this seminar, I taught participants general awareness, self-defence skills, the reality of self-defence and what to do post conflict.
We focused on honing our combative skillset, sharpening our reflexes in dealing with bladed weapons, and developing strategies to overcome attacks once we have been thrown/taken to the ground.
All participants greatly enjoyed the Seminar and the practical takeaways that it afforded them.
If you have missed this Seminar, do not worry as we will be hosting several more seminars exploring different topics throughout the year. If you have any suggestions for topics please contact us here:
Some photos from the seminar are posted below for your enjoyment!

Expert Camp Australia
Traditionally held in Israel, this year a further KMG Expert Camp was held in Australia from September 29 to October 5, 2018. This marked the first time that such an exclusive camp was held in this country, and right on the Gold Coast! Again, I was able to attend to continue to advance my skills!
The KMG Global Instructor Team, including representatives from Israel, Australia and Singapore attended. This was a great opportunity for those students and instructors who have graded to Graduate Level 4 and above to take part and take their skills to the next level!
As can be seen from the photo below, there was a great turnout of participants from five(5) countries! Everyone there embodied the Krav Maga tenet of continuous learning and pursuing towards an ever higher level of skills and knowledge proficiency.
Congratulations to all those who graded for their Expert levels and passed their tests!
Krav Maga Master Tour
The 2018 Australia Krav Maga Master Tour was held yesterday afternoon 30 September at Broadbeach State School on the Gold Coast. As can be seen from the photo, there was a great turnout of participants! Everyone enjoyed the wisdom and practical guidance imparted by Eyal Yanilov (Master Level 3), the man who spread Krav Maga throughout the world. From physical fitness and mental toughness drills, through to combatives, defending against weapons and multiple attackers and culminating in third-party protection principles, the afternoon was packed with real-world techniques and tactics that can be readily applied to any foreseeable threat. We were all inspired to take our self-defence skills to the next level!
I was very fortunate to be able to participate in the annual KMG Expert Camp held at HaGoshrim Hotel and Nature Resort, Israel between June 18-26 this year. After 7.5 hours of a gruelling grading test, I was promoted to Expert Level 1 in Krav Maga! The test involved performing techniques and tactics against orthodox and southpaw attackers, weapons disarm, third-party protection and countless rounds of fighting individual and up to five other opponents!
Over 80 Krav Maga Expert-level instructors from around the world participated in these 9 days of intense, fun-filled physical, psychological and tactical training with Master Eyal Yanilov and the Global Instructor Team.
Everyone showed great determination, courage and resolve during the grading tests, and came away with heightened knowledge and appreciation of Krav Maga as well as where they stood in relation to it. Congratulations to all who passed their tests!
