No worries, I've got you.
One of earliest students Mark, who'd never done any martial arts or self defence started training with me because wanted a some new exercise drills plus how to defend himself.
A week after our first session (we did power slaps and elbows) he was threatened with a knife.
Without thinking he used a power slap to knock the guy out.
I purposely haven't told you the whole story you can find it in my free guide here.
So yes, even if you're a beginner you'll be fine. And you'll get to good standard faster by doing 1 to 1's. And yes even after the first session you'll get something from it.
Just your typical gym kit mate. T shirt, shorts, trackie bottoms and please remember a bottle of water.
I don't want you dying from dehydration. Too much paperwork to fill out.
Recently I did a group session for 3 people
I got everyone to where what they normally would to work. I had one guy in a suit (an old one mind), another in jeans and t shirt and one guy even wore a old winter coat.
The results when you're training with real life clothing is interesting.
You get to test out what it really feels like to try these techniques on real clothes. And it's a laugh. Just don't wear anything brand new. Guaranteed they're getting ripped mate.
That's something you can progress to after you've been training for a while.
Just your typical gym kit to get started.
If you're going to be crunching pads, grappling, and smashing tyres with a sledgehammers, what do you think?
I remember when I was younger and in the summer we used play cricket in the park. The adults and the kids used to play together. No word of a lie some of these dads used to look like a blueberry muffin from Costa. Some these guys had a mini stroke as they came in to bowl to the kids.
Imagine that was you and you're in a burning house and you got to get your kids out.
Got to pick them up, put them on your shoulder and smash out. Except you don't because you die from a cardiac arrest while running for the door.
Not a way a to go is it?
Don't be that guy.
If you're read this far you obviously hold yourself to a higher standard.
You'll build a body that's, stronger and leaner plus you'll become harder to kill. . And you'll develop a habit of keeping in good shape because you'll want to.
If you want to get ahead, I've put together a 20 minute workout you can do with 1 kettlebell in your own home here.
Depends on your ability.
I'd say from experience you'd need atleast 40 hours of private sesh's combined with some hours to get any kind of proficiency.
I once used to repair computers for a guy who owned a very successful printing company. At a time when printing companies were being crushed by the likes of Vista print this guy was in the business. Even doing printing for vista print themselves.
This guy had started off as an apprentice, worked his way up, made of bunch money, became a director and then started up on his own.
He got so successful he bought out some of the guys he used to work under.
And the reason he said he was able to do this was because he respected the process.
He'd work on a combination of skills everyday from from sales, marketing, accounts, to running a company. He did this for years.
When he was ready. He had no competition.
The guys who'd been above him a lot of them inherited the company from family or they bought it when times were good but had no experience of running a company.
When market conditions changed they didn't have the skills to adapt because they'd had it easy.
Because this dude had gone through the process and put the time in over many years, when the time was right he was bang on it, crushing it.
You can't shortcut the process and the time you put in.
If you've been successful with anything in your life this will vibe with you.
Talk to anyone successful at anything they'll tell you the same thing "It takes time."
That's why the accelerated training course is expensive.
It's £2,400 (with payment options to break it up) for 40 hours for private training. Plus as a bonus you get access to the Wednesday class for free as well.
That's my take on it.
My free guide gives you a pathway you can follow to get the skills quickly. Get it here.
This one's an easy one, if you haven't figured it out already.
With one to one, personal training you'll get that next level genuine confidence.
Back when I had a job I went for an interview with company that looked after old people.
Back then I was training regularly with my old instructor Darren Selley, every Wednesday and Thursday.
The confidence I got from that was unreal. And it really came through when I was speaking.
And I remember them asking me, so what do you do for a hobbie, and I said to them "Yeah I do Krav, real life self defence if you ever find yourself in a situation. I won't lie I was a bit of troublemaker when I was younger, always getting into fights (I'm not like that anymore) so I wanted something to defend myself if it came to me."
And they were like "that must give you so much confidence." Right there I knew I had the job.
Sold them the dream.
It's all about the confidence.
How you feel and how you carry yourself. And other's will notice. Trust me.
That's the drug I deal.
