"All of our Krav Maga instructors are Israeli-trained, certified and annually re-certified. That is the Spartan difference!"


The success of our training is based on the program we've developed through years of experience and the skills, knowledge and commitment of our instructors. We offer our students a structured and progressive approach to developing the individual skills and tactics that are required to be effective practitioners of Krav Maga.


We are proud to say that we have an innovative and extremely qualified instructor team here at Spartan Self Defense. We understand that in order to provide the best instruction to our clients, we need to have the best instructors. To maintain that edge, we make it a policy to constantly improve our knowledge base by investing in our own training. All of our Krav Maga and Kapap instructors are Israeli-trained, certified, and annually re-certified. That is the Spartan difference!

Our instructors represent an ideal mix of attributes that make us unique among self-defense establishments - they can impart practical and theoretical knowledge based on the top quality training they have received, enhanced by extensive operational experience that you just cannot buy.
