Become a Human Walking Weapon.  

𝗕𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗔 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗧𝗘𝗖𝗧𝗢𝗥. Learn to defend your family and yourself against violent crime and the most common street attacks in South Africa using hard core, intelligent, realistic, no nonsense techniques that work.


We specialise in taking ordinary civilians and turning them into their attacker’s worst nightmare. 


Become a Human Walking Weapon. Training that will change your life.


You can be any age (this particular course is for adults and teens), you can be any fitness level and you can have no prior experience. As a side note, this is also a great alternative to normal gym!


We have had the joy and privilege of training thousands of people across a broad spectrum over the years including police officers, bodyguards, private security firms and civilians from all walks of life, ranging in age from 5 years to 82 years.


Please don't feel daunted and don't let your current physical condition hold you back. We take special care of any students who may join us with pre-existing medical conditions or past injuries.


Storm Combat is based in Northriding, near Fourways.


Just a little about Krav Maga. What you will be learning is a military close quarter combat system used by Special Forces and Elite Law Enforcement. Think of a "Mission Impossible", "John Wick", or "Jason Bourne" movie and the fight scenes in these movies. You will be learning very similar techniques, only, we are the real deal designed for real life and not Hollywood.


You will gain powerful self-protection skills specifically for the South African streets. In the process, you will also get fit, get strong and lose weight. And your confidence will increase as you come to realise that you have acquired a serious set of skills.  And if you choose to continue beyond Beginner Level, you can train right up to Black Belt Level.


At Storm Combat we are widely known for two things: being a seriously hard-core, no nonsense combat gym, with very friendly people and no egos, lots of laughter and lots of sweat! (Don't let "Hard-Core" put you off. You won't get hurt while you are training.... but we can't say the same for any would-be attacker.)


Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency. You are trained to be a human, walking weapon; your prime directive is the preservation of life - yours and the lives of others, in the face of a violent encounter. While we encourage peaceful resolution of conflict - should your life be in danger - you will learn to finish the fight using devastating techniques.


Discover how to turn the attacker into your victim! All techniques taught are not based on size or strength. You could well be 6ft4 and weigh 120kg, but somewhere out there, there is someone bigger and stronger than you are and possibly even on drugs so that he feels no pain. They could be bigger, stronger, faster, younger, more athletic and even well trained... THIS is the sort of attacker/opponent that we train you to beat.

Live life on your terms.


Hope to see you on the mats soon!

Krav Maga is a military combat and self-defence system, originally developed for the Israeli Defence Force and used worldwide today by members of Elite Military Special Forces including the U.S. Marines, the Royal Marines, well-known international law enforcement agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  

Krav Maga is based on instinctive movements and is based on a no holds barred mentality.

Krav Maga by design stresses efficiency, aggression and, above all, survival. There are no katas, and rules for competition don't apply on the streets.


Krav Maga also teaches techniques like headbutts, groin strikes, strikes to the back of the head, eye gouges, and throat strikes. All of which would be considered illegal in a sanctioned sport fight or martial arts competition.

Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency.

You are trained to be a human, walking weapon; your prime directive is the preservation of life - yours and the lives of others, in the face of a violent encounter. 

Like most martial arts, Krav Maga encourages students to avoid physical confrontation. If this is impossible or unsafe, it promotes finishing a fight as quickly and aggressively as possible.


Attacks are aimed at the most vulnerable parts of the body, some causing severe or permanent injury.  Some techniques are lethal.


Students learn to defend against a variety of attacks and are taught to counter in the quickest and most efficient way.

Training in situational awareness is an essential soft skill, given the ever escalating crime in South Africa.   Defending against an attack that you didn't see coming reduces your chances of survival.  

Unapologetically hard core, our intelligent, realistic, no nonsense system of self-defence can be learned by anyone of any age with little or no prior combat experience.
