Tampa Bay Krav Maga Reviews and Testimonials

A few testimonials from our students to help give you an idea of what to expect when you train with TBKM.

​The Real Deal! Brian and Joe are world class, knowledgeable instructors with a passion for the study. They are definitely some of the best people I know. Great facility, great people, great attitudes. I would recommend anyone and everyone, whatever skill level.

Outstanding Real Life Training in Krav Maga! The entire staff at Tampa Bay Krav Maga is excellent. Brian and Joe undoubtedly have the elite Krav Maga skills, but most importantly they have great abilities as instructors. They take the time to make sure students not only know how to perform the techniques, but also understand the rational behind them. You will find no better Krav Maga instruction than at Tampa Bay Krav Maga.

If you want to feel a little safer in certain situations; Get physically fit; then this is the place to go! I brought my daughters to this program to learn how to defend themselves. Little did I know they had a woman’s self defense course just about to start. I signed us all up, including myself, and I just turned 60!

The instructors are excellent; hold high rankings, and are very patient. I personally had past issues with regard to physical harm. Brian and Joe both worked with me so I would feel safe in their environment. I highly recommend the Women’s Survival Course and the Basic Krav Maga. They also, of course, have other levels of sparring which I really like and ground work is a favorite of mine. I highly suggest their Kickboxing class if you want a killer workout. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Tampa Bay Krav Maga is the BEST place to learn real survival skills in the Tampa Bay area. Brian and Joe are excellent instructors who are patient, helpful, encouraging, and make their students safety a top priority. the students at TBKM are also very welcoming and helpful to new students. My 7 year old son and I have been training with them fro about 6 months now and i would never go anywhere else. Joe and Brian are extremely well trained because they are taught by Eyal Yanilov, the head of Krav Maga Global (who studied with the founder of Krav Maga).

They offer special seminars and bring in top Krav trainers from all around the world as guest instructors, which makes them the most dynamic place to learn Krav Maga. they even offer free seminars a few times a year that are open to the public because they want the community to be a safer place to live, which says a great deal about their character. I am very impressed with them and I encourage you to give them a try. I guarantee you’ll be glad you did!

Krav Maga is the real deal when it comes to self defense; and Brian and Joe are outstanding instructors. They take their craft seriously, continuously refining themselves with the most experienced Master and Experts in the world. You will learn techniques and increase your stamina and confidence.

They also add a good bit of levity, so there is no intimidation factor. Everyone is welcome. I’ve been with them for over a year and am looking forward to continuing my education with them. Your life may never be on the line in a confrontation, but if it ever is, you will wish you had studied at Tampa Bay Krav Maga!

This place is amazing! This is the best self defense school around. Anyone can do it no matter the age or fitness level. They have morning classes and night classes to fit difficult schedules. The owners/instructors are super nice and not scary at all. They run women courses through the year and other seminars as well. Don’t put off checking it out.


Krav maga is the best self defense system I have ever encountered, out of dozens. The teachers at Tampa Bay Krav Maga ae as dedicated and professional, and caring as you could possibly want from any teacher. If you want to learn self defense, this is, hands down, THE best place to go in Pinellas County and the entire Tampa Bay area.

Although I have never been to Tampa Bay Krav Maga, I did take classes for over a year at one of their previous dojos before I went away to college. The instructor, Brian, is AMAZING, as a person and as a teacher! You will learn everything you need to learn to be confident in yourself and laugh along the way!

You will find your strength in his workout classes and learn how to get away from attackers with guns, knives, or deadly hands. I DEFINITELY recommend taking one of his classes! Not only did Brian help me discover my confidence, he also helped me perform a community service project. We taught a self defense seminar and raised a lot of money for the Salvation Army Domestic Violence Shelter. It was a HUGE success!
