All of our programs give you the skills to protect yourself – to be safe. Our students include a wide range of ages, abilities, and backgrounds. We focus on where you are and strive to help you develop and improve your self-defense skills. Classes are interactive and we encourage questions and feedback. Beginners welcome!
These classes develop your abilities to avoid, escape, and if necessary, fight to protect yourself. Topics range from avoiding and escaping dangerous situations to surviving weapon assaults.
Chris runs classes with a friendly atmosphere that invite people to learn the techniques and principles of KM at their own pace. As an instructor, he is quite approachable, and works patiently with students to improve their technique, offering critiques and encouragement. More importantly, though, he gets students to learn to think on their feet, to use the KM skill-set as a foundation for dealing with various real-world situations. -Andy Ling
If you prefer to train with other women this class is for you. The format is similar to the co-ed adult group classes but with more emphasis on situations women are more likely to face.
Krav Maga was an amazing experience for me! I learned self-defense against unknown attackers, with & without weapons (knives, baseball bats..) in a systematic, repeatable & enjoyable manner. Each week added to the knowledge of the week before & the class flew by. My colleagues at work were eager to know what I had learned that week & I was only happy to demonstrate. It is a fundamental, foundational discipline that every woman should seek to learn to empower & elevate her awareness. Go for it!!! – Christine Koehler, PMP.
Our kid’s classes focus on developing situational awareness, safety, and self-protection. Kids develop confidence and learn basic skills to be safe.
I highly recommend TKMA and Christopher because Krav Maga is one of the most effective self-defense systems and Christopher is an amazing instructor. My children have been taking Chris’ classes for over a couple of years and they’re loving it. Classes are always interesting and fun and it is astounding how quickly kids can learn Krav Maga. Christopher is doing a brilliant job in teaching them situational awareness, how to identify, avoid & prevent confrontation, and when this fails, how to solve problems using impressive techniques that are very efficient and effective.
Thanks to Christopher and Krav Maga, my kids are more confident and I am comfortable knowing they are learning extremely valuable skills that will benefit them for life. – Tudor

I organized two Krav Maga sessions as a Wellness initiative. The sessions were practical, useful, and thoroughly enjoyable! Chris was a friendly and knowledgeable instructor who is an absolute pleasure to work with. Employees were extremely satisfied with what they had learned and look forward to bringing back the program in the near future. – Rachel Malin Marketing Analyst, Bic Inc. Canada
On behalf of Enbridge Gas Distributions’ HR and Facilities team, I would like to extend a BIG thank you to the awesome self-defense class!!! The group enjoyed every minute and were so appreciative of all the tips, techniques and knowledge shared. The group commented on how fun the class was, the level of expertise demonstrated and the support and encouragement provided throughout each of the activities. One of the core values at Enbridge is safety and not only did your course this value, it went a long way to enhance the team’s awareness of personal safety and well-being. – Caitlin Oakley, Human Resources, Enbridge
Train one-on-one with a certified instructor to meet your particular needs and goals.
I have trained in Judo, Tae Kwon Do, and Thai Kick-Boxing. I have found Krav Maga to be more dynamic and diverse than these other martial arts. The concepts behind Krav Maga are practical and easy to understand. The lessons can be as physically intense as the student wishes. I find Chris to be an excellent instructor. He has a great ability to explain/demonstrate the most complex moves in a manner which I find easy to understand. He is personable, professional and punctual. I thoroughly enjoy training with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in getting into shape by learning an invaluable self-defense martial art. – Russell Masters, Vice-President at Tower Hill Development Corporation
Learn practical self-defense with friends, family, or co-workers, according to a program that suits your group’s scheduling and training needs.
A friend and I had hired Chris for private Krav Maga instruction. We had limited time, having discussed our needs with Chris, he set a condensed lesson plan that covered our interests and introduced us to additional skills. Chris works in a structured way, with each lesson building on skills learned earlier, giving you lots of practice to commit the movement and concepts to memory. It was a real pleasure receiving instruction from Chris and I’m looking forward to our future sessions. – Peter Fritz, Photographer at Peter Fritz Photographer
