Who will be my instructor?


DG set up CATSDG Krav Maga to help make self-defence more accessible to normal people. Simple, down-to-earth and effective self-defence for normal people living their daily lives.

DG is a qualified Urban Krav Maga Instructor, and a licensed Instructor with the British Combat Association.

He trained intensively with the founders of Urban Krav Maga whose lineage stems back to Eyal Yanilov and the founder of Krav Maga, Imi Lichtenfeld in Israel:

DG applied himself strongly to our training over a prolonged period; he worked really hard to turn himself into a better instructor and practitioner. 

This hard work is now reflected in his knowledge and teaching ability. We’re very glad to have him in the organisation.
