I’ve been a sport-hating bookworm my whole life, and training in Urban Krav Maga has been just about the only time I’ve ever taken part in sustained, regular physical activity. I believe that anyone can learn self-defence, and I’m the living proof of my own theory.
I’ve studied Urban Krav Maga for about eight years, working directly with the system’s founder, and I am currently one of only two female UKM instructors. I set up UKMW because I believe very strongly in women’s self-defence, and because there are some very unhelpful myths floating around in popular culture which go a long way towards discouraging women from defending themselves against attack. UKMW is intended to act, in part, as a countermeasure to those myths.
