Training Background

Glenn Mortelmans started his training Krav Maga in 2001 in London UK.
Glenn trained extensively around the world with various highly ranked Krav Maga institutions. Glenn is a qualified instructor at 5 international institutions.
After returning to South Africa and the need for a realistic and proper Krav Maga club was established, Glenn then created Krav Defence Systems in 2013 in Middelburg South Africa. We have expanded our training in various regions across South Africa since then. Currently our second biggest club is based in Witbank and is run by Instructor Werner Gouws.

We ensure that our training is kept up to date by means of doing regular training and exchange of knowledge in Poland, Ukraine and Israel.
All our instructors are carefully vetted after 2 years of regular training and then entered into our Instructor programme.

We have the highest levels of Krav Maga in South Africa and pride ourselves to be known internationally by our standards, level of expertise and integrity.
We have over a 100 success stories where students used our techniques and our training in real life, and all of them our students “won”
