“Steve Maycock is a massively experienced martial artist with several decades of practice and teaching under his belt..

 He is one of the brave few, in that he places himself and his art under severe pressure and scrutiny to ensure he teaches a water tight system.

As well as qualifying with honours as an instructor on my master class Steve Maycock is also one of the nicest , most genuine, generous and humble person i have yet to meet in my forty years of Martial Arts training, both as a friend as a teacher”

About Krav Maga 

Krav Maga (contact combat) is a self-defence and military hand-to-hand combat system developed in Israel. It came to prominence following its adoption by various Israeli Security Forces and is now used by military and law enforcement personnel, as well as civilians around the world. The version of Krav Maga taught in civilian martial arts classes is more often a simplified version that emphasises personal self-defence and is likely to exclude the killing techniques taught to the military, or the holds and come-alongs taught to police forces; there are legal proscriptions in some countries which govern and constrain the teaching of hazardous or life-threatening techniques to civilians.
