Krav Maga Adventure Weekend.

British Academy of Krav Maga Adventure Weekend.

October 11th & 12th 2014.

Every couple of months BAKM organises a weekend of adventurous activities for any interested members of the school. 

Activities in the past have included paragliding, hang gliding, climbing, kitesurfing, canyoning and sea kayaking amongst others. 

Our next adventure is a multi-choice activity trip to Snowdonia & Anglesey, North Wales, where we will have a choice of the following activities:

Coasteering
Zip Lining
Hiking
Rock Climbing 
Kitesurfing

Activities will be chosen by the group on the weekend and it could be that some people are doing different activities to the rest of the group (as its your choice after all !)

We will however ensure that we get together in the evening for a few beers and to talk about our individual adventures.

We would also ask that you try to arrive in North Wales on the evening of Friday the 10th of October to make the most of the weekend.   

We intend to stay in a youth hostel near or within Snowdonia and will hire a mini bus to facilitate transport between the hostel and activities once there.

In summary: 

You will have to make your own way to & from Bangor, North Wales from London.

We will meet you there and transport you to the youth hostel as well as to & from activities over the weekend and back to Bangor station. 

Estimated costs are therefore around £90 return off peak rail ticket from Euston & anything from £50 to £100 for transportation, accommodation, activities, snacks, beers, food etc, once there.

So budget around £150 to £200 (minus your deposit)

To reserve your place you will need to pay a non refundable deposit of £50 which will be subtracted from accom & vehicle hire costs once you are there. 

We only have 10 places for this adventure weekend and places are reserved on a first come, first served basis.

Repair the damage...

My 3rd Pilates session today.

Am trying to get into both this and yoga to offset advancing stiffness, lack of flexibility, herniated discs & trapped nerves.

The joys of being active :-)

Even more competitive...

Not just 3 days a week at £45 but now 5 days a week for £45 - the competition might argue that they are better and therefore entitled to be more expensive but thats a load of b*ll*cks.

Look at the level and experience of BAKM instructors and you'll see what I mean..

Getting Competitive..

OK, so now that London is pretty much saturated with Krav Maga school's its time that BAKM got competitive. So, now we have 3 classes a week - Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday priced at £45 per month and we have reduced the trial class fee to £10 rather than £20 per trial class.

Lets see what happens now ....

Sad Day Today...

Sad Day Today...

This is the first time I have had to reduce class numbers rather than increase them - I guess Krav Maga has finally arrived in London now and the competition is saturating the market now so a lot more providers and less people to fight for... 

Thats business I guess :-(

See below...

Urgent News - Krav Maga Class Schedule Changes.

Guys, apologies but as of next week the class schedule is changing to 3 days a week of training.

This is mainly due to the fact that we have become somewhat diluted within the school and I could not see the point of having so many venues with class numbers staying as they were.

I have therefore cancelled Friday's Vauxhall (Southbank)  class after tonight and have also cancelled both the Monday & Wednesday class at Erasmus St starting next week.

Classes will now therefore be run as follows:

Tuesday 7pm until 9pm @ Pimlico Academy

Thursday 7pm until 9pm @ Pimlico Academy

Saturday 10am until 12 noon @ Pimlico Erasmus St

I will also be changing the fee for membership to £45 per month unlimited, which basically means you may attend any or all of the 3 classes per week from hereon.

I will be changing pricing with dfc (the payment collections people) over the next few days.

If you have any questions about this please email: info@krav-maga.org.uk

Kind Regards

John
