Class Descriptions

Krav Maga Open Level Classes 马伽术全级别课程 (orange classes)

Krav Maga Open Level 1 and Open Level 2 classes are open for all students of KMG Beijing.

Open Level 1 classes, which are marked by a lighter orange color, are very beginner-friendly and taught step-by-step. These classes make up the main Krav Maga curriculum, and can be attended by anyone looking to learn Krav Maga.

Open Level 2 classes, marked by a darker orange color, are faster paced and will typically not cover very basic skills. These classes are also open to all students, however we advise that students joining Open Level 2 classes first come to some Open Level 1 classes to get basic striking foundations, fundamental Krav Maga techniques and tactics, as well as pad holding coordination and skills.

Selected classes (marked with an asterisk*) are open for trials. Kindly contact us to register for a trial class.

// KM CORE and KM CORE SPLIT-LEVEL (Open Level 1) | 核心技能课与核心技能分级课(全级别1类)

KM Core classes covers self-defense and fighting techniques and strategies for dealing with various attacks/threats. This class also covers avoidance and prevention of attacks, as well as developing the self-defense mindset. This is an essential Krav Maga class.

In KM Core Split-Level classes, students who have already graded with KMG will be separated during technique training to allow them to practice with increased intensity and difficulty suited for their level. For beginners or non-graded students, this class will be the same as any the regular KM Core class.

// STRIKE LAB (Open Level 1)| 击打课(全级别1类)

Focuses on drilling the fundamental strikes that are used in all Krav Maga techniques. These include various punches, kicks, hammerfists, elbow strikes, knee strikes, etc. This is an essential Krav Maga class.

// KM FOUNDATIONS: STANDUP, GROUND, & ROLLING (Open Level 1) | 马伽术基本功:站立技术、地面技术与翻滚技术课(全级别1类)

This class is all about practicing basics for standup movement and striking, groundwork, and dealing with falls. Here we take the time to go through the details of the basic movements, focusing more on stances, stability, distance, and straight strikes; fundamentals of ground movement and getting up; and basics of rolling and falling. Classes alternate each week between Standup Foundations and Ground & Rolling Foundations. Not open for trials.

// KM SIMULATIONS (Open Level 2) | KM模拟情境课(全级别2类)

This class focuses on simulating added stressors (i.e. non-ideal environment, position of disadvantage, partial incapacitation, carrying things, etc.) that complicate conflict situations. To benefit from this class, we highly recommend that students first attend more KM Core, Strike Lab, and KM Foundations classes before trying out KM Simulations. Not open for trials.

// STRIKE LAB 2 (Open Level 2) | 击打课(全级别2类)

Focuses on more complex string of strikes that require higher coordination and good foundations. Students will also work on more challenging strikes and unusual combinations to improve their agility and overall striking abilities. NOTE: We ask that students who join this class first develop pad holding coordination and skills (in Strike Lab 1). Students who are not accustomed to pad work coordination will be given the option to work on the heavy bags with a modified combination. Not open for trials.

// OPEN MAT FRIDAYS @ SHUANGJING | 自习训练(周五双井)

Students can come to the Shuangjing studio at this time if they would like to practice with a partner, work on heavy bag striking, or workout personally for fitness. An instructor will be present, and students can ask questions if needed. NOTE: As a respect to the school, no commercial classes/private training or non-KMG training is allowed. For safety, no unsupervised sparring during Open Mats.


Strength & Fitness Open Level Classes 力量与体能全级别训练 (yellow classes)

Supplementary classes that focus on developing strength, stamina, conditioning, and overall fitness for Krav Maga practitioners. Classes are designed to be individually progressive, and students work at their own pace under the guidance of instructors. Open to all levels, from beginner, intermediate and advanced students. Not open for trials.

// CONDITIONING | 体适能训练

Designed for overall conditioning, including improving stamina, strength, endurance, agility, and mobility. Focuses on body-weight exercises with the goal of improving general Krav Maga performance. Not open for trials.

// STRENGTH & POWER | 力量训练

A technical strength class focusing on weighted resistance training. The goal is to improve foundational strength not just for Krav Maga but also for functioning in everyday life. Because of the technical nature of this class, each session will start with proper form practice and review to avoid injury, before progressing into multiple strength sets.

// MOVE: AGILITY & MOBILITY | 作训练:敏捷性与灵活性

This class focuses on mobility, agility, and flexibility -- key aspects of any kind of combat or fitness training. Each class works on improving range of motion, as well as techniques for moving over obstacles with greater ease. Agility and mobility training translates not just to better movement in Krav Maga, but also to better functional movement in daily life.

// COMBAT FIT | 格斗健体训练

A fitness class that also incorporates basic combat movements, for those who want more fight in their fitness. This circuit training class combines elements of standup striking and groundwork, resistance training, and explosive strength training.

The program covers all aspects of self-defense training for kids and teens, from the physical and technical aspects, to the educational aspect (self-control, violence prevention, stranger danger, functioning under stress etc.), to simulation training.

// YOUTH LEVEL (Age 8 to 11) | YOUTH班(推荐年龄8-11岁)

In addition, they will develop their awareness and attention skills, and learn about values such as discipline, respect, helping/protecting others, and persistence.

Training FAQs

1. How is Krav Maga different from combat sports (MMA, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Sanda, etc.) or martial arts (Kung Fu, Wushu, Karate, Taekwando, Judo, etc.)?

Krav Maga is not a competitive or combat sport, nor it is a martial art, nor is it for performance. The goal of Krav Maga is practical and realistic personal protection, not lasting several rounds in a ring to win a fight. It is about preparing yourself so that you can prevent or survive an attack, not win a belt or trophy. As such, Krav Maga training focuses on realistic scenarios and attacks, developing the self-defense mindset, and developing the skills you need to survive an attack.

2. How long will it take for me to become proficient at Krav Maga?

Krav Maga, unlike martial arts, is a very fast-progressing system. Part of its design was driven by the need to train people very quickly and very efficiently. Consequently, it typically takes a person of average physical ability perhaps only several months before significant progress is achieved and noticeable. The fundamental idea in Krav Maga is that you can learn something usable in weeks or months, not years.


However, it is important to note that progress is largely based on consistency in training. A person of average physical ability who trains at least four hours a week every week can learn to defend against common attacks within a few months.

3. How safe is Krav Maga? Do I risk getting hurt?

Krav Maga is as safe as any other martial arts form. If you follow the instructor’s directions and mind the safety rules, the chances of being injured during a class are as remote and even less than for any other sport.

4. What do I need to bring to class? What should I wear?

Footwear: Wear sneakers or training shoes (we have a no-barefoot policy). Indoor training shoes are preferred, since we try to keep our mats clean.


Clothing: Comfortable exercise clothes are fine, but it would be best to wear t-shirts, not tank tops or sleeveless shirts to protect yourself. For women, avoid low-cut tops. Also, avoid very short shorts. Some of the techniques require aggressive movement on the floor or grabbing and pulling, so you may either end up with mat burns on your shoulders or legs (very painful!) or you might have a wardrobe malfunction if you’re not in proper attire.


For men, bring a groin guard. If you don’t have one or don’t know what brand to get, ask our instructors about it.


Also, you will need water, a towel, and a change of clothes.

5. What are the classes like? How are they structured?

Classes in Krav Maga Beijing are rolling throughout the year. Occasionally, we will have crash courses for beginners, but for the most part, we encourage new students to jump into the regular KM Core and Strike Lab classes.


Each class is structured so that we start the hour with basic movements that are built up and combined into a full technique or series of techniques. Also, while we strive to make each session unique, we will always go back to techniques, because repetition is necessary to learning.

6. What's the difference between KM Core and Strike Lab? Which should I go to?

KM Core focuses on self-defense techniques. In each class, we look at various kinds of attacks/threats and go through basic and intermediate techniques for defending against them. We also cover avoidance and prevention of attacks, and we learn to develop the self-defense mindset.


Strike Lab, on the other hand, focuses on drilling the fundamental strikes that are used in all Krav Maga techniques. These include various punches, kicks, hammerfists, elbow strikes, knee strikes, etc. This does not mean, however, that this is just a “basic” class. As you progress in Krav Maga, it will always be important to drill and improve your striking ability.


We recommend that students come to both classes, no matter what level you are. They are different but relevant to Krav Maga.

7. Are the classes good for people who want to lose weight and get fit?

While we do focus on conditioning, our classes are not necessarily fitness-oriented. Although the sessions can be quite a workout, as many students will tell you, the main goal is to train in self-defense and condition your body and mind to survive attacks the Krav Maga way.

8. I've never done any kind of martial arts or combat sports before. How do I start?

You don’t need to have previous experience in martial arts or combat sports to learn Krav Maga. All you need is the willingness to work hard, and the open-mindedness to learn the techniques and develop the self-defense attitude. It won’t be easy, especially at first, but it is a rewarding and fulfilling experience if you stay with it.

9. But I'm a small person with little strength. What good is Krav Maga to me?

Krav Maga was designed to benefit the average person. The system is not about sheer strength or power. In fact, one of the basic tenets of Krav Maga is that one should not oppose power with power. Rather, Krav Maga blends a combination of physical skill with mental self-defense determination. Consequently, Krav Maga is more accessible to people of any sex, shape or size than many other martial art forms.

10. I've done Kung fu / Wushu / Sanda / Karate / Taekwando / MMA / Jiu-jitsu / Muay Thai / kickboxing. How do I start?

While previous martial arts/combat sport experience is always a plus, it also means you may need to adjust. Unlike other combat forms, Krav Maga is not a competitive/combat sport or martial art, nor is it for performance. The goal of Krav Maga is practical and realistic personal protection and surviving an attack (typically by multiple opponents who have the upper hand). It is not about showing off how many cool moves you can do or how tough you are. If you want to really learn Krav Maga, you will need self-discipline, control, open-mindedness, humility, patience, and respect.

11. What type of students do get in your classes?

Our students are a mix of young professionals, managers, executives, and university students, etc. We generally screen students before accepting them, so that people who are arrogant, too ambitious or too aggressive, or people who just want to fight or show off, are weeded out. Because of the nature of Krav Maga, we prioritize the safety of students in training as well as preserving the learning/training environment.

12. Can my 12-year old son/daughter join the regular Krav Maga classes?

Unfortunately, no. Krav Maga for kids is completely different from the adults class. The Krav Maga adults class is not designed to be a boot camp for disciplining your child; students must already come with the maturity, right mindset, and an understanding of the difference between self-defense and violence.


For teens ages 16 to 18, they must undergo screening from our instructors before we can accept them in the adults class. Once again, this is dependent on attitude, maturity and self-discipline.


We currently have a Youth Level Class (Ages 8 to 11), contact us if you would like to book a trial for your child. We will also be launching classes for other age groups in the latter part of 2018.
