Fantastic school, fantastic instructors and life skills I have taken with me to the other side of the planet. If you are looking for a great way to get fit, make great friends and learn a skill that may just save your life one day go see the team at KMDI Sydney.
I've been with the KMDI for around 3 months now. It is the best decision I have made. The instructors and staff are friendly, funny, professional and always encouraging no matter how hard they push you. They teach you a lot and always give good reasoning behind every technique you learn. The students as well have all been nothing but supportive, friendly. The work is hard but very rewarding and I've seen improvement already in the short time that's passed. If you stick with it, you will get hooked. Something that I'd recommend to anyone looking for useful self-defense skills and getting fit simultaneously.
Very cool place to train. Atmosphere is laid back but focused and the people are super chill. Couldn't ask for a better place.
Amazing! going to continue to come back! signed up on the spot!
I have been going for around 2 months now and I love it. You never know when you might need Krav Maga, its good knowledge to have but also good for fitness. All the teachers are really good. They explain everything well along with the reasoning behind certain moves (which i find useful) and they correct you if your doing something wrong. I also love doing the combatives classes. I am still out of my comfort zone but at KMDI everyone is welcoming, friendly and motivated. :)
