AUSTRIAN KRAV MAGA ASSOCIATION (AKMA)
No other self-defense system has recently attracted as much attention as Krav Maga. Within a few years, Krav maga has developed into a tried and tested system to be used in all relevant areas of self-defnse, security management and personal security, as well as in police forces and the military. Krav Maga’s cornerstones are professional organisation, perfect training environments and the assignment of highly qualified trainers and instructors.
Having been founded in 2000, the Austrian Krav Maga Association is the first and largest (15 locations all over Austria) internationally acknowledged Krav Maga Association in the country. The AKMA is a member organisation of the Krav Maga Concept International.
The AKMA is an independent Krav Maga Association with the aim to professionally spread Krav Maga thanks to well trained and qualified instructors. Most of our instructors have – in addition to their Krav Maga qualifications – officially recognised certifications for other martial arts styles, and also have year-long experience in other martial arts.

Krav Maga is a polished self-defense system, which, due to its special training and methodical configuration, guarantees maximum success. Krav Maga is a “living” system, which always considers a person’s needs, and can therefore be adapted depending on size, gender, professional needs… AKMA’s consequent development and training methods – within legal boundaries – will help you in dangerous situations.
