“The most realistic self defence system in the UK today”

Combat Magazine

“It (Krav Maga) has more self defence cred than any other system we know about – and we know quite a bit about the subject!”

GQ Magazine

Best in the World for self defence. It is totally practical, no flashy kicks or great spiritual angle.

Krav Maga Gradings

British Krav Maga certified training

  • Up to 1500 kcal / hour

British Krav Maga has a conservative approach toward the awarding of grades.   British Krav Maga view grading as a byproduct of consistent focused training and not as a goal in it’s self. Accordingly, students are ‘invited to grade’ when the instructor is sure they are ready.

The grading process provides a route map for the development of the Kravist.   The process of preparing for the assessment focuses student training and enhances standards of performance across the board. Gradings have become a route map on the path to self improvement but are not viewed as an end in themselves.

What our students say

“Having trained and instructed in several martial arts for the last 30 years, completed courses with some of most respected instructors in the world, engaged in door safe courses, trained with the British Army, I’ve yet to find anything that brings as much realism to my attitude to self defence as much as Krav Maga does.
This coupled with the fact that Jim Halton is one of the most all rounded instructors I’ve had the pleasure to train under, I feel more than qualified to recommend this school to anyone wishing to better themselves, either physically, mentally or just out of need to feel safe.” – Tony Baxter, Bristol

“I have done many kinds of martial arts, I have been trained by the Royal Marine Commandos. But I have never found a better form of defense. This is not down to Krav Maga alone. Jim is one of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Every one of his lessons leave you feeling Fitter, Faster and Stronger. Not just physically but mentally. Krav also gives you a safe state of mind, because of the training Jim gives you, no matter what situation you face, you will always react with appropriate action” – Jon Bale, Thornbury, Gloucestershire.

“I’ve been training with Jim Halton and the Titans now for nearly 3 years.  In that time i’ve become  stronger, faster, fitter and more confident than I ever thought I could be and it’s only going to get better.  Krav training is hard, you push yourself but the rewards you get back are unbelievable. Come and give it a go, don’t think about it, just do it!”

After training in various disciplines, I’ve finally found Krav Maga and the Bristol Titans, Krav Maga is by far the most comprehensive martial art I’ve ever trained in pushing me to my physical limits and teaching me techniques that work in real life, Bristol Titans is a team of people that are very humble with a no ego attitude, this helps you develop in your training better than any atmosphere I’ve ever trained in, Jim is a fantastic coach with a wealth of experience and extremely approachable regardless of your standard”
