KRAV MAGA IN GERMISTON
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
The Krav Maga instructor at Elite Defence Academy, Sunnyridge (Germiston North) is Greg Yen.
Greg is a full time Graphic Designer, husband to a beautiful wife, and father to two amazing children. He sets aside time in his busy week to teach his passion: equipping likeminded men, women and children with the knowledge that they too have options when it comes to practical self defense.
“Each one of us has a mandate to protect ourselves and the loved ones around us," says Greg. "Join me at Elite Defence Academy, Sunnyridge, and I will teach you how. I will equip you with a set of skills that will improve your awareness of your immediate surroundings and give you the confidence to handle any life-threatening situations you may come across. All I need is your time and willingness to soak in some EMPOWERING information. My goal is to teach you INTELLIGENT and EFFECTIVE self defense!”
Greg has 10 years of martial arts experience in various styles. “I was introduced to Krav Maga by a friend 9 years ago. The class was taught by the founder of Elite Defence Academy, Des Brown. I was captivated to say the least - and made the decision that I would equip myself to be able to share these skills with others.”
Greg has been teaching Krav Maga for 7 years. “I love the fact that Krav Maga is to-the-point and enables even a smaller person to defeat a larger, more aggressive attacker, using body dynamics and depth of movement.”
Our members are women and men of all ages, from all walks of life, and we welcome everybody. You don't need to have any prior experience or be "in shape" at all - just come as you are. We'll show you how easy it is to learn intelligent and effective self-defense skills, and gain confidence in a safe environment.
Learning Krav Maga is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, both for your own safety and peace of mind, and for the safety of your loved ones.
“At the end of the day it's up to you," says Greg. "All you have to do is to take that first step, and visit us. You're welcome!”

VISIT A CLUB / BOOK A LOOK-IN SESSION
To visit a club for a look-in session, it's best to book a date so that we can allocate time to personally showing you what we offer, answering any questions, and generally helping you feel at home. Our culture is extremely visitor-friendly and beginner-friendly, and all are welcome.
Just dress casually, as you would to go to the gym or to take a walk. Loose, comfortable clothing is best, along with sneakers or similar footwear.
Should you decide to enrol with us, an official EDA Krav Maga T-Shirt must be purchased and worn. Should you wish to, you can order additional shirts and other apparel at any stage, as well as official training pants, etc.
If you like what you experience and would like to join us, the procedure is simple: We provide you with an enrolment form and member agreement form, which needs to be filled in, signed, and returned before your first official class.
Our member agreement form stipulates a 6-month membership, with fees paid monthly, in advance. At the end of the 6-month membership, your membership will be presumed to renew automatically unless you stipulate otherwise. Also, after the initial six months, should you need to cease training, you can do so with a month's written notice at any time.
KIDS KRAV MAGA CLASSES
Greg teaches a Kids Krav Maga class in Sunnyridge (Germiston North) for kids between the age of 6 and 12. Fun, safe, age-appropriate self defence skills are taught to boys and girls with an emphasis on safety, camaraderie and responsibility.
Along with having huge amounts of fun, kids learn important life skills, how to defend themselves, develop core strength, agility and hand eye coordination.
At present, we are required by law to adhere to certain safety protocols, and we ensure that these are met. These include:
• Wearing of masks during training. (We know, it sucks, but it won't be forever.)
• Spray sanitizing of hands and shoes upon entry, and regular sanitizing of hands, forearms and equipment during training.
• Social distancing - of course, you need to work with a partner, so we ask that you try to stay with the same partner week to week if possible, to prevent intermingling, and we also distance partner pairs from each other to reduce risk via proximity.
• Each member is required to fill in a quick online Covid-19 Health Declaration prior to attending each class (link is provided to members).
• Anyone who is aware of any symptoms of illness (elevated temperature, cough, flu-type symptoms, etc) is asked to rather avoid class until they are certain that they do not pose a risk to others. (This may entail a member self-isolating for 2 weeks, or undergoing a Covid-19 test if they feel it is necessary.)
These measures may be revised or discarded as the governmental restriction status changes or as permission becomes available to do so.
You're most welcome to contact us if you'd like more information.
