ABOUT KEHILLAH SELF-DEFENCE

ABOUT KEHILLAH SELF-DEFENCE

Founded by instructor Keenan in 2023  

KSD was founded with the purpose of empowering the religious UK Jewish community through the study of authentic self-defence.

 

What we teach:

We have tailored our self-defence syllabus to combine techniques from 3 core disciplines:

Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a self-defence system predominantly used in Israel that focuses on practical techniques and real-life situations. It emphasises using instinctive movements, making it a popular system for self-protection.

Karate

Karate is a martial art that originated in Japan, which combines physical techniques and character development. You will learn various effective strikes, kicks and blocks.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a ground-based martial art focusing on submission holds,  leverage and control without relying on strikes. 

 OUR CLASSES 

We will adapt our services to meet the unique needs and interests of the community. If you have any specific requests or suggestions for offerings, please feel free to contact us.

Founder and Head Instructor

Keenan

Originally from South Africa, Keenan lived in Israel before settling in the UK

With a career in security and counter-terrorism, he specialises in keeping the Jewish community safe.

Having studied martial arts for almost 3 decades, Keenan is well-versed in the realms of striking, grappling, and self-defence. He has combined these styles to formulate a syllabus that can take an untrained person and make them competent in defending themselves in a short time. 

Keenan's guiding philosophy focuses on equipping trainees with practical skills for real-life scenarios. Accordingly, each technique and drill covered serves a distinct purpose, and every session concludes with live sparring, enabling participants to gain firsthand experience in facing a resisting opponent.
At Kehillah Self-Defence, we don't believe in shortcuts; training is designed to be challenging. Rest assured, you will be learning the real-deal from the best in the business.
