5. Practitioner level test

The date is set: we will conduct our P-level test on June 20th 2020.
Level testing is not mandatory, but it will allow you to have a clear idea of where you stand on the Krav Maga ladder and push yourself further. Questions about level testing? Ask your instructors.

Please note: regular training is necessary in order to properly prepare yourself for the level test.

Location: Sports hall Emanuel Hiel, Freesiadreef 7, Schaerbeek.

6. ESD (Empowerment Self Defense)

On Saturdays 18th and 25th of this month, we conducted our second ESD workshop, with very positive feedback!

12 women of different ages and backgrounds worked on mental, verbal and physical self defense – including awareness, boundary setting and deescalation – for a total of 8 hours. It was fun, exhausting, inspiring, challenging and much more!

Due to great success and demand for more, more workshops will be coming up soon! Stay tuned! Questions about ESD? Contact one of your instructors.

7. Upcoming seminars and Krav Maga camps


May 15/16/17th 2020, SMART Belgium will organize a Krav Maga weekend in the Belgian Ardennes near to pitoresque Han-sur-Lesse.
During 2 nights and 2 days you will experience training outdoors in a beautiful natural environment.
Besides revision of all P-level curriculae (preparation for upcoming level test, June 20th), there will be special trainings, on Krav Maga Graduate and Expert level themes (open to all level students).

On top, we will alternate our Krav Maga training with outdoor activities, such as rappelling, lasergaming, BBQ, campfire and night dropping, to guarantee an exciting weekend.
