Krav Maga classes for kids are designed to provide them with specific tools and techniques to address the situations they commonly encounter at school, on the playground, and in daily life.

    Our emphasis in these classes revolves around three key aspects:


    By focusing on these practical needs, we ensure that children remain engaged and actively participate in the learning process.

    One of our primary objectives across all age groups is to cultivate mental strength. We understand that a strong mind is agile, aware, and confident. Therefore, our Krav Maga program for kids & teens goes beyond physical training. We train young minds to think critically, react effectively, and prioritise situational awareness and creative problem-solving.

    Krav Maga classes are designed for kids & teenagers to provide the most dynamic approach to teaching realistic self-defence techniques. Not only does the program enhance your child's level of fitness, but it also fosters their self-confidence and strength.

    Our instructors place a significant emphasis on helping kids & teenagers recognise and appreciate their progress throughout their training, boosting their self-esteem and empowering them.

    Alongside self-defence skills, Krav Maga classes instil essential life skills, including respect, discipline, control, and focus. These skills contribute to the improvement of a student's mental and physical capabilities.

    Children will learn a wide range of skills, techniques, and tactics to effectively handle unexpected confrontations that may arise. They will gain the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate such situations confidently.

    Krav Maga for kids & teens places great importance on teaching students how to recognise and avoid conflict whenever possible, without resorting to physical or verbal violence. This focus on conflict avoidance promotes a proactive and peaceful approach to personal safety.

    ​By enrolling your child in our Krav Maga classes, they will not only acquire practical and effective self-defence skills but also develop invaluable character traits and conflict resolution strategies that benefit them in their daily lives.

Rise Up Krav Maga

5.0 out of 5 (View 38 reviews)

Established in 2018, Rise Up Krav Maga is a Krav Maga Global (KMG) affiliate school and we provide practical and effective self-defence classes in Sans Souci, south Sydney's St George area.

Our self-defence training is based on the KMG system, a globally recognised and modern Krav Maga system that is continually being updated for the modern world.

Everyone is welcome at Rise Up Krav Maga, regardless of prior experience. Our self-defence lessons are suitable for ages four and up and are adapted to suit all fitness levels and guarantee that you will feel welcome and a part of the Rise Up Krav Maga community.

​We run weekly classes for kids, teens, adults and women only. One-on-one private training is also available for those who are unable to make the regular class schedule. All our classes are run by KMG trained and qualified instructors. Our head instructor has completed the required 240 hour, 22 day General Instructor Course to become a fully certified KMG Graduate Level 5 Instructor.

Rise Up Krav Maga has been voted finalists in the St George Local Business Awards for Outstanding Fitness Services for five years as well as being awarded finalists in the prestigious Australian Small Business Champion Awards for 2023 and 2020.


Krav Maga for kids and teens teaches tools and techniques tailored for situations that commonly confront kids at school, on the playground, and in life. In our classes, we stress three things: self-defence, fitness and confidence. By focusing on these real world needs, kids are engaged in the learning process.

One of our primary missions with any age group is fostering mental strength. A strong mind is agile, aware and confident. Far from being a physical only class, Krav Maga for children trains young minds to think and react with an emphasis on situational awareness and creative problem-solving.

During classes, your child will get plenty of exercise, but it will be exercise with a purpose. By linking their physical activity to real self-defence techniques, we focus on training the muscles they will be asked to use both in class and the real world. We help your kids develop and maintain healthy bodies through the use of exercise, nutrition and mindfulness. They will learn the limits of their body and how to push themselves safely to expand those limits.

Students learn skills quickly and stay in shape, but they also get the practical skills to keep them safe. Students are taught awareness of their environment, what to do if they are attacked and when to avoid a fight. By cultivating the proper mindset and the physical skills needed to support it, you help keep your child safe even when you aren’t around.

in the last week

Every week I look forward to training with these guys. The classes a full of real people in all shape and sizes with a common goal. I've found it a great addition to my fitness routine, though i reckon it would be a practical way to get started on any fitness journey. The instructors always meet you at your level and take time individually with all class members to develop practical skills and build confidence for big city life. Love it.

I have been doing private lessons with Yanni for around 2 months and could not be happier. I came in as a complete novice at the age of 41 wanting to learn skills that will enable me to protect myself and my young family. Yanni takes me through the lessons at my own pace and the training is based on real-life scenarios which teaches both the psychological and physical elements of dealing with threats. While I am still in the early stages of my Krav Maga journey, I know that I am on the right path under Yanni's instruction.

I attended and thoroughly enjoyed my first women’s self-defence workshop today. Yianni does indeed have a lot of knowledge and is an excellent teacher. I can’t wait to start self-defence classes at Rise Up Krav Maga. Thank you for today’s class Yianni, Lara & Crew.
