Welcome to Krav Maga United Kingdom Krav Maga Self Defence Manchester!

We are excited to welcome Craig Ridge of KMSD Manchester to the KMUK Network.

Krav Maga Self Defence has been on quite a journey, with founder and Chief Instructor, Tony Bradley sadly passing away in 2020. Thankfully, Craig Ridge, who Tony was training up to become an Instructor, stepped up to save the club and continue Tony’s street-focused realism philosophy.

Craig studied Aikido for 10 years before discovering Krav Maga in 2011 and beginning training at Krav Maga Self Defence (KMSD) in Manchester.  

2021 has been an HUGE year for Craig, taking the Krav Maga Instructor Course Level Two under Krav Maga Master Gheorghe Husar, Craig was awarded instructor status in May through Spartans Academy and the Israeli Martial Arts Federation. Craig is now the Chief Instructor at KMSD and a Licensed Instructor with Spartans Academy of Krav Maga.

CONGRATULATIONS Craig, fantastic work and WELCOME to Krav Maga United Kingdom – we are pleased to have you!
