Stay Away Women’s Self-Defence courses and seminars are suitable for women of all abilities; no previous martial arts or self-defence training is necessary.

Our courses have been designed to deal with the unique threats faced by women. Men and woman are built differently and our courses teach you to use modified counter attacks to fend off attackers.

Women have to confront two main threats: sexual assault and sexual harassment. It’s a common assumption that resisting and counter attacking the attacker may aggravate him and cause him to become more violent.

This assumption is wrong: studies have shown that immediate and aggressive responses including fighting back are effective (Dr Judith Herman, author Trauma and Recovery).

Participants on the courses will learn how to:

  • Overcome the difference in attacker’s size and strength
  • The use of body language
  • Dealing with knife threats
  • Effective counter attacks
  • The use of everyday common objects
  • The essence of danger

Our objective is simple: to ensure that as many women as possible attend these courses and stay safe.

I took the women's self defense class whilst living in Scotland for a year, as I wanted to learn to protect myself better. I liked it so much that I started the regular course until I left Scotland. Now, two years later, I've started taking up classes in The Netherlands again. It may sound cliché, but there's a "krav" vibe that is connected to the sports itself, and you can find it in any country. Krav Maga has made me fitter, stronger and more self-confident. I feel like they should make it a mandatory subject in all schools. But until that has become a reality, taking classes with Robert at SKMS is a great alternative

Gracie Moffat

Learning Krav Maga has allowed me to feel confident in my ability to defend myself and others, whether it's on a night out or travelling alone in a new country. Best decision I've made for my self confidence!

Camilla Damlund

Learning Krav Maga with SKMS is a true confidence builder. Robert and the other trainers are dedicated to making training fun and epic while maintaining a safe environment for all. Couldn't ask for more team spirit, more dedication, or a better Krav Maga experience.

Alyna Karim

I began Krav Maga in 2016, with the pro-active intention to learn some basic self-defence as I started university. The classes are fun, energetic and informative. They have greatly helped to build and improve my self-confidence. Overall I highly recommend learning Krav Maga through SKMS, it was definitely one of the best decisions I made.

Marion Ambrose

Absolutely love SKMS classes! Everyone is super friendly and the trainers are patient and understanding. I've definitely learned some self defence techniques that I hopefully will never need to use, but I feel prepared!
