I love this club! I was a bit nervous about going to my first class and wasn’t sure how welcoming it was gonna be. But Jesse (the instructor) totally puts you at ease - he is really kind, welcoming and funny so you immediately feel relaxed. You can tell he’s really invested in you and your training and that gives you more confidence as you work your way through the moves. Everyone in the club is lovely and I look forward to seeing them each week :). I find Krav has been so good for my fitness. I worked out everyday before I joined the club, but Krav pushes you to a whole new level of fitness. And everyone seems super into it - so I feel like it pushes you to want to be better and train harder. I love working on the martial arts stuff - makes you feel like a badass 😉 (even when you’re a total newbie and still learning everything). And I find the assertiveness and confidence I get from training moves over into other areas of my life.

Great classes by a great instructor and probably one of the best things I've ever done in my near 28 year existance. I've learned some good moves and warmups that have kept me fitter and healthier, the fight team session on a Tuesday is good as well. Feel more confident, established connections with and made new friends who I get on well with, I also enjoy the social side of the club as well. Looking forward to continuing this journey. Loved it so far.

Top notch club ran by an top class instructor. After a hard think on things as I mean I’m 41, overweight and already tried a club that just didn’t sit with me and nearly put me off Krav Maga that a friend recommended I try out my local club that just started in the south side, my whole thoughts changed as I absolutely love it! The regulars are all so friendly and so are the coaching staff, nothing is ever too small for them to run over. As for the fitness sides of things, I was encouraged to go at my own pace which I do and I’m gradually getting fitter and fitter. If you’re hesitant, I suggest a free trial class, you won’t regret it. Whether it’s friends, as there’s a social aspect to the club, coffees etc or just full on training there is something for everyone, did I mention the self defence taught? Whatever your reasons you won’t regret taking that first step and it’s worth every penny. Best move I’ve made in a long time was going along for that free trial class. The atmosphere and instructor makes for an excellent club. Thanks, Jess ….

I’ve been training with IKMS glasgow for almost a year now, and have to say it’s been an incredible and satisfying experience. In the past, I’ve never managed to consistently go to gyms or fitness classes, without soon loosing interest. And I think it’s a testament to the instructor, Jesse, who keeps the class endlessly engaging, in a safe, respectful and supportive atmosphere. An hour or two going by in a flash and I find myself looking forward to the next class. I’ve learnt a huge amount and found a wonderful community.

I started at Krav Maga about 4 weeks ago. I'm usually quite nervous about trying new classes, but from the moment I signed up to the first free trail class, I felt completely welcome. I'm really enjoying learning how to defend myself, and they push your fitness in a fun way. I look forward to each class.

Jess, the instructor, glows with enthusiasm for his subject, and that enthusiasm certainly rubbed off on me. The skill and quality of the teaching was absolutely first class. The impact on my overall fitness was also a very welcome bonus. Great value as well.

Nearly two months ago I was going to book my trial lesson and asked Jesse (Krav instructor in Glasgow) how many times I should be training (because I didn't want to commit to anything that would take a lot of my free time, but was really curious about trying Krav Maga). Since the first week I've been training 4-5 times a week and I can't get enough of it 😀 The lessons are a lot of fun, the instructors (Jesse, John and Scott) are great people and very attentive and kind instructors. They built a community that feels like a family and can easily find an approach that works for any personality/fitness level/etc <3

I have trained with IKMS Krav Maga for almost 4 years now. Krav Maga is a reality based Self Defense programme developed by the Israelis. There are no rules in its application and there are no competition. We focus only on street self defense. Jesse Alfstad is an attentive and knowledgable instructor who specialises in dirty fighting. The classes consist of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and we are welcoming and approachable. We don't wear uniform to remove the "belt colour" intimidation factor and we all train at the same level. I would thoroughly recommend Krav Maga to anyone who is wishing to try self defense. Don't worry about your fitness... That is why you come to Krav Maga 😉

Jesse is an amazing trainer, he makes you feel comfortable and is very patient. Would recommend to anyone regardless of fitness level, as Jesse adapts to your needs without a problem. The best part in my opinion are the other people who train here as well, they have a wonderful community and friendship, which makes training not only useful (as you workout + learn how to defend yourself), but a lot of fun as well. As I wrote earlier, I would recommend IKMS Glasgow to anyone, it is genuinely a great place to learn Krav Maga.

To say Jess is an excellent instructor and coach would be an understatement. He has a talent for teaching and explaining things in a way that is interesting, clear, and always well- remembered. I felt my confidence increase as soon as I walked in the door, and I felt valued both as a Krav Maga practitioner and person. I would highly recommend Jess’ sessions – their friendly, incredibly fun and you always learn something.

My 28 year old son has been a member of this group for almost a year and it has done wonders for his mobility, strength, fitness and overall confidence. It has taught him how to defend himself, if required, which for me is so reassuring, in addition to this, he has made so many lovely friends in this group, which is so professionally run. Definitely based on feedback from my son, I would recommend these classes to anyone who wants to improve their core strength, fitness and confidence, in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment.

Fantastic self-defence class! Started a few weeks ago for initially 4 weeks of private training with my 12 year old daughter and It is great fun! Instructor Jesse made us feel welcome straight away. Jesse is an excellent teacher who introduces practical and useful new techniques every week and makes the class good fun too. Incredible knowledge shared by highly skilled instructor who ensures to motivate you and pushes you to your limit. Loving it so much we’ve decided to continue.
