Krav Maga Bristol Titans Reviews
Over the years we have trained many hundreds of students in Krav Maga, people from all walks of life, doctors, engineers, forklift drivers, decorators, students, doormen, bodyguards, teachers, soldiers, builders, nurses, paramedics, shop assistants and pretty much every occupation under the sun.
So many people are attracted to Krav Maga as they have seen a need for it in their life, maybe they were looking for a supportive club to encourage them to train for fitness, maybe they saw something in the news or experienced an attack themselves and thought it was time to learn some self defence skills.
Some people train with us for the social aspect, many of us have trained for years and are good friends through Krav Maga. Some of our students have been kind enough to leave us some Krav Maga Reviews below please take a moment to have a read of them, and of course if you would like to speak to one of our instuctors then contact us either by telephone or by clicking here
“Having trained and instructed in several martial arts for the last 30 years, completed courses with some of most respected instructors in the world, engaged in door safe courses, trained with the British Army, I’ve yet to find anything that brings as much realism to my attitude to self defence as much as Krav Maga does.
This coupled with the fact that Jim Halton is one of the most all rounded instructors I’ve had the pleasure to train under, I feel more than qualified to recommend this school to anyone wishing to better themselves, either physically, mentally or just out of need to feel safe.”
Tony Baxter, Bristol
“I have done many kinds of martial arts, I have been trained by the Royal Marine Commandos. But I have never found a better form of defense. This is not down to Krav Maga alone. Jim is one of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
Every one of his lessons leave you feeling Fitter, Faster and Stronger. Not just physically but mentally. Krav also gives you a safe state of mind, because of the training Jim gives you, no matter what situation you face, you will always react with appropriate action” –
Jon Bale, Thornbury, Gloucestershire.
“As an overweight, unfit, couch-potato if you told me at the start of 2011 that within 3 years I would be doing extreme assault courses and triathlons I would have simply laughed in your face. However since starting training with the Titans in early 2011 this is the exact person I have become.
I am a fitter, stronger, faster (and considerably lighter) person than I was back then. I am now laughing in the face of these challenges, have the mental and physical skills to overcome them, and looking forward to tackling even more new and exciting ones. Starting Krav Maga was the best thing I have ever done, and it has literally changed my life in every way.”
Ben Sweet, Krav Maga Practitioner
“I’ve been doing martial arts since I was 13. I got a blue belt in Karate and a black belt in Hung Kuen Kung Fu.
I started doing Krav Maga with Jim Halton and since I have been so impressed with the basic but brutal aspect of it, it’s made me fitter, stronger then ever and my punching power has gone up ten fold, I owe it all to Jim, thanks bro ur one in a million.”
Paul “Ern” Herniman. Yate, Bristol
“I’ve been in and out of martial arts; Tae Kwon Do and Shotokan Karate, over the last 12 to 15 years and now, as a copper, was looking to get back into some fighting art to add and further equip me for day to day as a cop.
I found Krav Maga and Mr Jim Halton. As a cop I get trained once a year for 2 days, mainly to comply with force regs etc. but it does not equip us to properly deal with the violence and the unexpected we walk into. I’ve been a kravist for around 2 months and feel the fittest I’ve ever felt, the quickest I’ve ever felt and the most confident I’ve ever felt.
With Krav Maga you will get fitter, stronger and mentally able to deal with anything. You owe it to yourself to try it. Krav Maga; when walking away isn’t an option!” –
Jay Sargeant, Hanham Bristol
“I have been training for about 9 months now & I love it! Not only have I found a defence system that actually works in the real world, but I have also found a great supportive & encouraging team that I am proud to be a part of. Jim Halton is an amazing instructor who is 100% committed to everyone’s success & he really cares about & supports his team.
Becoming a Titan was one of the best decisions that I have ever made & I have nothing but respect & admiration for the Titan family. I would certainly recommend both Krav Maga & Jim Halton. I couldn’t imagine training with anyone else!”
Kim Ashton, Krav Maga Practitioner, St George, Bristol
“As a red blooded Paratrooper, I’ve always had a problem with being able to deescalate situations. Partly because I always felt like I had something to prove and partly because I don’t mind getting stuck in and having a ruck. Jim has given me the self confidence to be able to talk my way out of fighting and hold my head up high in the sound knowledge that literally anyone who pushed it too far would soon regret it.
Jim he has proven himself to me as someone who truly cares about his students and more importantly the results they get in training with him. You’ll be a better, person, fighter and all round human being in investing in not only him and his expertise, but in yourself.
The thing I like about training with Jim is the sound knowledge and skills that he drills into you in his lessons. Everything you learn is based on research from common attacks in the UK and therefore evry single thing you learn will help you survive a street attack.
We train under pressure and against multiple opponents. If you looking for a man test (or woman test) then Krav Maga is the one for you. “Train hard so that you may walk in peace”
Vil Pietersen, St George, Bristol
“I have trained with Bristol Titans on and off over the past two years and would highly recommend the group to anybody. Jim is an amazing instructor who makes you feel welcomed from the second you step foot into the class, he will structure his classes to suit every bodies needs and will support you every step of the way.
Working as a Door Supervisor and having experience in other martial arts such as Judo and Karate, I can definitely say that Krav Maga is the best suited to real life situations, giving you a massive confidence boost in your day to day activities.
Not only is Krav Maga a great method of self defence, it also includes fantastic fitness drills which give you that extra push and determination to work through fatigue and improve your general health.”
Ryan Ali, Kingswood.
“I’ve been practicing martial arts for over 8 years and achieved a black belt in Hung Kuen Kung Fu. But Krav maga truly takes martial arts to the next level. I have found in only a few months of training with Jim my skills have improved I am fitter and stronger and the best part of it all is that its fun.
One of the best things I have found with Krav Maga is that it not only teaches you how to fight but you learn how to avoid fights and the psychology and reasons behind why some people out there want to fight.
I would highly recommend it to anyone whether you’re an experienced martial artist or a complete beginner.”
Mark Sparey, St George, Bristol
“Jim Runs a great class. He’ll push students hard, but balances that with a great sense of humour and supportive manner. If you want to really push your self in a great fighting system – look up Jim. You wont be dissapointed.”
Paul Grey, Director – British Krav Maga Association
“I joined the Bristol Titans a year ago not really knowing what to expect after a bit of time away from the gym and needing to focus on shedding the gained pounds my body had acquired from this I was introuced to Jim Haltons Titans through a friend, a year later it still feels like yesterday.
Since meeting Jim Halton and his Bristol Titans Krav Maga group I have been truly inspired. It has improved my fitness incredibly I have lost over 2 stone in weight and developed a new set of core skills I would never have thought possible. The teaching from Jim is first class and every member of the group are as passionate as he is and no task is to big when it comes to helping others and improving skill sets and pushing you through those final burpees that last sit up.
It has made me more confident and keeps your mind set on appreciating the uncertainty that the streets offer us respecting that at any giving moment the most harmonious of situations could turn hostile in a second and the ability to be able to potentially deal with that threat is something you wont learn anywhere else. Joining Krav Maga is by far one of the best decisions I made in 2013 and 2014 is only just beginning!!!”
Gareth McCarthy, Krav Maga Practitioner
“Jim Halton .. well he has the ability to teach with a humour and a passion for Krav maga which is infectious ..I have never done any sports ,martial arts or fitness in my 46 years on this planet.
Then I start Krav Maga and under Jim’s excellent tuition ,I am fit and fully confident that I could stop an attack on myself and family and push my self to limits I never knew I could achieve .. its even good for us more mature gentlemen /ladies ,but be careful you may be come addicted !!!”
Mark Godwin, Wotten Under Edge, Glos
“When I train with Jim Halton, it’s easy to come away feeling better than before I started, Jim has the ability to lift people to not only improve their Krav Maga and fitness but also to help change their head set on life, not sure how he does it but I come away feeling like a better person and I want to pass that on as well, with out question Jim is a man who makes a positive impact on the lives of people he meets, what more can you ask.”
Dan Tswei, Special Forces Krav Maga Instructor
“Around 5 months ago I started Krav Maga to sharpen my fighting skill. I knew it would be a challenge as I immediately found out. Krav Maga pushes your mental and physical limits, you’re shown that you can keep fighting through what you thought would be impossible.
I’m alot more comfortable in myself. I know I can defend my loved ones. I’m in the best physical condition of my life. Most importantly, I’m happy and always leave a Krav Maga session smiling.
I’d recommend Krav Maga to anyone, everyone!”
Shane Baker, Krav Maga Practitioner
“I have trained for about a year now and get restless when I have to miss a session! I absolutely love Krav Maga and our instructor Jim makes every session a good one (even if I do hate him the next day!!). As a female I felt as though Krav Maga may be a boys club but my fiancé encouraged me to join as he had already been a member for a while.
I have now learnt just how friendly the other members – both make and female – are, and whoever you partner with everyone is encouraging and motivating you to keep going. Coming to Krav Maga has given me confidence in myself to know I could hold my own – but also know how to defuse a situation. I now have a P1 grading to prove it!
I love my Krav family and can’t wait to spend another year with the team!! Go Titans!!”
Jen Williams, Krav Maga Practitioner
“I have been coming to Bristol Titans Krav Maga for just over a year now. Jim has been a brilliant teacher and really knows his stuff. The class is challenging but it is a really good learning environment.
I’ve enjoyed getting fitter and feel more confident generally. I’ve been to other martial arts classes and felt that I would have to do years of practice to be able to use any of the techniques in real life. With Krav I always feel that I am practicing something I could actually use- although obviously I hope I never have to.”
Stephen Forrey, Krav Maga Practitioner
“I’ve been training with Jim Halton and the Titans now for nearly 3 years. In that time i’ve become stronger, faster, fitter and more confident than I ever thought I could be and it’s only going to get better. Krav training is hard, you push yourself but the rewards you get back are unbelievable. Come and give it a go, don’t think about it, just do it!”
Liz Sweet, British Krav Maga Association
