Our Instructors go through a very extensive selection process to insure we have only the best and most talented instructors around.

When they are selected, they are put through an intense and rigorous series of training to guarantee the highest quality of instruction. Once certified, our instructors are required to continue Krav Maga training and Instructor education yearly.

This ongoing training allows our Instructors to stay up to date on the latest and most effective self protection techniques, teaching methods, nutrition and exercise science. This process is our assurance that every Krav Maga Boston South Coast student will continue to receive only the very best in self-defense training.
