Krav Maga St. Petersburg Florida – Self Defense School

Welcome to TBKM Krav Maga St. Petersburg, where we provide classes tailored for individuals of all ages in the art of Krav Maga. Our academy prioritizes empowering our students, aiding them in becoming more self-assured and skilled individuals. Through our structured curriculum, we aim to guide each student on their martial arts journey and foster personal development within a nurturing, safe, and inclusive environment.

Krav Maga, our chosen discipline, originated in Israel post-World War II. It integrates techniques from various disciplines such as Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Wrestling, Karate, and others, resulting in a comprehensive approach to self-defense.

At our facility, we provide training for self-defense in various scenarios, including one-on-one, two-on-one, and three-on-one situations. We also offer training for defense against weapons like knives, guns, sticks, and rifles, covering diverse situations such as attacks from different angles, while sitting, in a vehicle, and more. With one of the most comprehensive self-defense programs globally, our academy is recognized as one of the premier institutions in the country.

Whether you’re seeking self-defense skills for yourself, your teenager, or your child, Krav Maga offers a versatile approach to handling defensive situations with confidence. Martial artists of all skill levels are welcome, with regular and advanced classes available, alongside sparring sessions on Wednesdays (requiring protective gear). Join us today to explore the world of Krav Maga St. Petersburg!

Self Defense Classes Largo with Joe Battle


"I have been with Tampa Bay Krav Maga for over 7 years now and this place is an exceptional school. The instruction by coach Joe Battle is second to none. We've learned combat defense including fighting, knives, sticks, rifles, choke and ground defense.

This place is a lot of fun, has superior instruction and everyone feels like family here - highly recommended!
