At KMSD, we’ve been innovating Krav Maga at the same location under the same leadership for over 25 years. If you visit elsewhere in San Diego, ask the instructors if they started their training with KMSD. There is a reason they are not here anymore. You’ll soon see why.

And most importantly, if you do plan to visit elsewhere, see us last.

Our KMSD Instructor Certification Course (ICC) is 9 months long.

Our KMSD Assistant Instructor Certification Course (AICC) is 9 months long.

These two types of Instructor Training Courses include something critical which no other Krav Maga training program has: a significant amount of the the Instructor training consists of supervised teaching time in front of full, actual Krav Maga classes.

It’s simply the highest caliber, most comprehensive Krav Maga Instructor Certification Course anywhere in the Krav Maga world. 

“It’s all about the Instructor”. This is a common trueism to keep in mind when you’re looking for a place to train in almost anything, anywhere.

“There is no substitute for experience”. This statement carries over to most things in life.
