I have found confidence in the lessons I have learnt over the last 6 months that I have been at Storm.
Ivana Ries is a great leader and instructor.
In a country where every man should be prepared to protect their loved ones, I wouldn't recommend a better place not just to start, but to stay and keep striving for excellence too.
That's my experience and that's my truth.
Truly blessed to be here.

The training is absolutely top notch. People are welcoming and encouraging. Joining Storm Combat was definitely one of the best decisions.

No time wasted on meaningless, repetitive, choreographed fighting techniques that have little place in the real life scenario. Rather Storm focuses on practical self defence and counter attacks against what you are likely to face in the real world.
Ivana Ries coaches with street defence in mind, at a pace that is easy to follow in an environment that is friendly and welcoming to all. Her knowledge and dedication are unmatched in my view, and she effortlessly combines the best from each style into her formidable Krav Maga classes.

Great hard-core training facility where Ivana and members are passionate about their training and building their skills. Training with Ivana has been one of the best experiences. She has taught me a new life skill. Our badges at Storm Combat are our bruises, and we wear them with pride.
Ivana runs a great club and is one of if not the only places in Joburg to get such a diverse set of different MMA disciplines being focused on under one affordable monthly cost.
The quality of training in incredible. You learn so much you wouldn't anywhere else.
As patient as Ivana is she helps massively with pushing you to be the best you possibly can.
Definitely recommend training here

I walked into this Dojo bodybuilder strong, but with no fight training. I was nervous about physical confrontation from fights in the past, but I desperately wanted to learn combat sports.This club gave me the opportunity to try multiple disciplines before finding my niche in the Storm Combat Fight Squad. Boxing & BJJ have become my focus disciplines.Head Coach, Ivana Ries, has helped me to see combat like moves and counter moves in a Chess match. Ivana gets her students to think calmly and clearly about what needs to be done, using a problem solving approach to combat. As a fighter, I'm confident in the techniques she teaches because we to put them to the test daily, sparring and rolling against multiple opponents.The comradery between the Fight Squad members is unique to this gym. The team spirit is what motivated me to join the squad and compete.Storm Combat can be credited with training me from base zero and turning me into a weapon.
Best self defense classes anywhere in Johannesburg. Multiple disciplines, integrated into a practical and realistic combat system. Brilliant coaching and training partners are great. Anybody can do this, male or female, young or old, the system is designed for anyone who is willing to learn and get an amazing work out.
I really enjoy the training offered at storm combat, its quite intense and the level of instruction is top quality.
Learning the various martial arts in one system gives me confidence in my ability to defend myself in any situation
