No. By starting your Krav Maga journey, you will immediately notice your fitness levels beginning to improve through increased movement and the variety of exercise. Our experienced instructors will ensure that your training is adapted around your requirements and aligns with your goals.
Many do not adhere to traditional fitness programs because they are repetitive by definition. Krav Maga is different. You will always come back for more!
Yes, but space is limited. We advise that you not be present during training as, in most cases, the kids become distracted. Parents can relax and take some valuable time for themselves in designated areas in the Pentagon Centre.
At our Glasgow location, street parking is free after 6pm. There are also a few car parks surrounding the building. More details can be found here: https://www.ironskullgym.uk/how-to-find-us/

These licences start from £20 per year, and more details will be given at your first class. Information on KMG licences can also be found here: https://www.kravmaga.co.uk/pages/licences
When you or your child joins Iron Skull Gym, you will be provided with a detailed guide which outlines the type of equipment required for training, and where you can purchase it. This will ensure that you can have everything you need to make the most of your classes.
Yes. We require that a club t-shirt be worn, and we include one in your first monthly membership.
When it comes to physical activity, there are no absolute guarantees of safety. However, injuries in training are a rare occurrence. Our instructors will ensure that your training is conducted with safety in mind, whilst maintaining realism.
No. Krav Maga is a self-defence system first and foremost. Although sparring does help to build confidence, and we do include it in lessons from time to time, it is entirely optional. Sparring is, however, only accessible after completing your Practitioner Level 1 grade.
As a beginner, you will be a Practitioner in the system. We will focus on the foundational aspects of the Krav Maga curriculum, and ensure that you train with someone of relative experience.
However, members who have progressed in the system already always welcome the opportunity to assist those who are just starting out. This will be a compliment to your training, as well as their own. The training environment is inclusive and supportive.
