TRUEKRAV SELF-DEFENCE SCHOOL
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Truekrav self-defence school is an independent purpose-built combat training facility in Cape Town. We combine the principles of combat with effective technique and combat fitness to deliver unmatched self-defence training. The facilities, world-class instructors, and effective training methodologies ensure that members receive physical and psychological coaching to support our primary objective: training you to survive a violent attack by a criminal or a terrorist.
We teach our members how to defend violent hand-to-hand attacks, knife stabs and slashes, or being held at knifepoint or gunpoint. To do this, Truekrav self-defence training includes techniques for handgun disarms, rifle disarms, and disarming an attacker who uses a baton, bat, stick, club, screwdriver, bottle, etc. In addition, self-defence againt rape, hijacking, home-invasion, kidnapping, and hostage situations is also incorporated the training syllabus.
Combat shooting (tactical training), where we teach our members how to use a firearm effectively under pressure, is also included in Truekrav self-defence lessons.
At Truekrav, we constantly practice, troubleshoot, learn, improve and refine, and all our members share in this process. When you train with us, you train what we train. You are free to ask questions or request proof of ability at any time. We learn by doing, and we offer you what we know.
It’s as simple as that.
TRUEKRAV INSTRUCTORS – A CUT ABOVE THE REST
Intense training, high standards, annual assessment, and strict acceptance criteria ensure that Truekrav Instructors are world-class trainers.
The Instructor Course is by invitation only, and potential instructors are thoroughly vetted. Acceptance criteria includes:
- A minimum of two years’ training with Truekrav prior to instructor training; and,
- Proficient combat shooting skills.
Instructor training begins with a “proof of skill” phase, where potential instructors must demonstrate their skill under pressure.
Following proof of skill, the candidates undergo physical selection. The physical selection has a drop-out rate of 70%, and candidates that do not pass the selection are not allowed to continue with the instructor training and must start again at the beginning of the course. Candidates that pass the physical selection are then taught how to instruct according to the Truekrav principles.
This is followed by a 4-month apprenticeship and, finally, candidates must a pass an instructor test to qualify as a Truekrav Instructor.
All Truekrav Instructors must pass the Truekrav selection criteria on an annual basis to remain current. No other Krav Maga school requires such high standards from their instructors.
It’s the Truekrav way. Period.
