Read Some Real Reviews

After taking Krav Maga classes for about seven months and then a break, I noticed this set of DVDs and thought to purchase it so that I could continue my training and maintain my skills. I’m very pleased with the program and believe it would be suitable for anyone looking to learn about Krav Maga, continue their Krav training or improve their physical condition.

Each movement or technique is clearly demonstrated and from multiple angles. The instructor also shows how to practice the technique as well as demonstrates its practical application.

Additionally, if you want to improve your cardio and physical conditioning then the prgram will help with that as well which is vital if you plan to take Krav Maga classes.

Again, I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this program and highly recommend it for personal training or as a compliment to taking instructor led classes.

-Andrew M.

This is an excellent Krav Maga DVD set. The 5 disk set contains all of the information and necessary step by step instructions to learn Krav Maga. The think I like the most is the ability to rewind and watch the techniques over and over.

You will learn combatives, weapons defense and much more….. Highly recommended course!

-Glen Chapman

I am a retired Deputy Sheriff and very familiar with self defense techniques! I honestly have to say, in my opinion that the Total Krav Maga Home Study dvd’s are the best out there! The techniques are shown from various angles with clear explanations for each one. They are presented in an easy to understand format. Anyone can do them. My 13yr old daughter and 9yr old son follow the program along with me! If you are looking for a no nonsense, straight to the point, self defense system, that thoroughly explains all techniques from various camera angles, this is the program to choose. One major bonus is, you can practice in the privacy of your own home with your family. Remember, “A Family That Kicks Together, Sticks Together” Best Wishes!!!”


“I bought the DVD set awhile back and I can say it was really helpful and informative! I’m a US Marine and on my down time, I practice with a few of the guys. Sensei Hodge is really descriptive and performs each technique in both normal and slow speeds so your mind can really grasp the concepts. For each technique, he explains the uses and different ways you can practice it before moving on to another technique so it gives you time to fully grasp each move at your own pace. The best part is that not only are you learning the execution of the deadly fighting force of Krav Maga, but you can actually earn rank in the style straight from the instructor. I would highly recommend this DVD set to anyone who wants to practice this style!”

-Lance Corporal Stephen Diaz, USMC

“Great product for the price. He steps you through the movement and gives you examples of exercises you should do to reinforce your learning. He also does a good job of emphasizing that the purpose is to be defensive in nature. This is assuredly not a replacement for taking a course if you are really serious about training in Krav Maga but it does cover a lot of detail. If you are willing to put in the time to practice then I am certain you will be rewarded with a level of preparedness.”


“Ordered the DVDs and am very happy with my purchase. I’ve tried other follow along courses on DVD before and some are not very user friendly and are hard to grasp all the presented info. Not the case with this DVD set, the instructor does an awesome job breaking down each technique into very easily managed and understandable slices or sections. The material covered is great and you get quite a bit of info over the five dvds not just the same concepts rehashed over and over. Material is well organized also which greatly helps. I would order it again in a heart beat. Keep up the good work. Train Hard.”
