Krav Maga Observatory Des Brown

"My vision for Elite Defence Academy International is to ensure, first and foremost,  that we're a home for people seeking intelligent self defense training in a friendly and supportive environment. We know that our system of Krav Maga has proven itself superbly over the years, and that it's practical and to the point - no politics, no egos, no stale traditions, and most importantly, no false claims.

It doesn't matter who you are - you're welcome to join us, and we treat everyone with care and respect. Above all, the purpose of Krav Maga should be to equip people to live peaceably, with greater confidence, and to work toward a better society and a better world for everyone.

The physical self defense skills are great - and absolutely necessary if you need to use them - but there's far more to Krav Maga than that. When you join us, you become part of a worldwide family of likeminded people who freely share their knowledge, their time, and their energy with you.

We would love to welcome you. All you have to do is to take that first step, and visit us."
