Some previous students with Tony on a Krav Maga Merseyside training course
Welcome to Krav Maga Merseyside
The first Krav Maga club on Merseyside. Established 2011
We practice authentic IKI Israeli Krav Maga, the most effective form of self-defence in the world. Unlike any other Krav Maga, IKI is continually evolving and our techniques are continually reviewed for effectiveness based on real-time exposure to hostility towards civilian IKI members and also those that are security or military personnel in Israel and other parts of the world.
Krav Maga is Hebrew and means ‘Contact Combat’.
Krav Maga was developed to be a simple yet brutally effective fighting and self-defence method, derived from the most effective techniques available in boxing, wrestling, judo and karate.
Krav Maga Merseyside recognises that to stay true to the concept originally taught, we must keep the moves simple and easy to learn. Just like it was taught to the IDF (Israeli Defence Force). On average new soldiers,(male and female) were given a 21 hour Krav Maga immersion programme to prepare them for battle and CQB, (Close Quarter Combat) if necessary.
Krav Maga is taught to many Special Forces and Security professionals around the world because of its simplicity and because it is devastatingly effective.
Fortunately, Krav Maga is now available to civilians. Black belt instructor Tony Preston has trained extensively in Israel and the West Bank. He also holds the rank of 2nd Dan in Geoff Thompson’s Real Combat System and is an Instructor of Eddie Quinn’s ‘The Approach Self Protection Method’.
Do I need experience?
The simple answer is no, anyone can train Krav Maga. Our classes are open to anyone, children aged 8 to 15 and Adults 16+, male or female, regardless of experience or physical ability who are interested in real self-defence.
You can take advantage of a FREE introductory lesson before deciding if Krav Maga is for you, you have nothing to lose. Free taster sessions are on Mondays and Tuesdays only. Or if your after some foundation skills come to our rolling beginners programme held every Sunday.
So can I get graded in Krav Maga?
Yes, of course, our IKI grading syllabus is sanctioned by the IKI HQ in Israel.
If you train regularly and put in the work you can progress through to black belt. Below is the belt progression in IKI Krav Maga

Children’s Krav Maga
We believe that the self-confidence gained from practising Krav Maga helps children to flourish.
The fear every parent has in respect of our children being bullied at school is always a worry, however, giving them the skill of Krav Maga and the social skills that help children to become assertive with improved confidence to deal with hostility.
Our Krav Maga classes are proven to help kids first avoid unpleasant situations and also if needed defend themselves from aggression and bullying.
Expert tuition is given by Tony and Mark Preston both instructors are fully DRB checked and insured.
