How much is a class?

All students pay on a monthly basis, this not a contract. It simply saves admin time, so instructors can teach

£35 per month via standing order and you can train as many classes as you want.

What is the difference between KAPAP and Krav Maga?

KAPAP and Krav Maga are two very distinct systems. Please visit the ‘What is KAPAP‘ page for an explanation

What do you teach in class?

KAPAP training is a modern day Close Quarter Battle system or commonly known as a CQB. Training principles have been passed down from the military and special police units (Military ethos).


Training split down to three facets

1. Spirit training: Mental and physical conditioning programme has been designed to ‘Toughen up’ a students mind and body and is essential part of training

2. Close quarter combat training: KAPAP is not a conventional martial art and does not have a syllabus. We teach principles, not techniques as they fail under pressure. Simple drills that build muscle memory and our regularly pressure tested.

Pressure testing is simply increasing adrenaline in the body and asking the student to perform drills. This is a rock solid way of really finding out what works and what doesn’t.

Classes can cover a number of subjects that include defence against knifes, firearms, heavy impact weapons, multiple attackers and street grappling.

3. Pre and post conflict training: This includes awareness, the law and conflict management skills and form an essential part of KAPAP training.

Do you teach children?

Sorry no, I do not teach juniors, KAPAP is not suitable and I would suggest looking at a local Karate, Ji-Jutsi or Judo club.

Mature teenagers may be considered

What do I wear?

Wear whatever you want as long as it’s comfortable to train in. Preferably hard-wearing and not expensive as things have a habit of ripping.

We have got Viking KAPAP t-shirts but you are not obligated to purchase these.

Do you have gradings?

No we don’t have these but I will assess students regularly. We have set drills that we practise religiously, you need to do this to build muscle memory and body conditioning and fitness.

Do you do courses or seminars?

Viking KAPAP is part of the KAPAP UK group and Avi Nardia Academy. We run courses all over the country and internationally, which include KAPAP Level 1 instructor courses, workshops with international instructors and firearms instructor courses in Serbia.

Visit my courses page for an up-to-date diary of Viking KAPAP courses.

Do you run female only classes?

No, we have plenty of females who train with the group and are perfectly at ease with training with the guys.

I would always advise in training with men so you can learn what really works and doesn’t. Body mechanics vary from student to student and you will be denying this in your training, if you don’t.

I’m strict with conduct in the class and an big ego’s and bullies are removed from the group swiftly.

Private classes

Yes I do provide private classes which cost £35 per hour and must be booked and paid for in advance. No booking, no class.

Do I need to buy any training equipment?

Yes, you do need to buy your own boxing gloves as there is nothing worse than gym gloves. Trust me, they smell really bad.

You will also need at some point to purchase your own rattan’s for stick fighting drills.


I have been learning martial arts since the age of 7 and KAPAP is the most simple and realistic form of style I have studied. It’s based on the principles of being able to defend yourself now and not in 5 years time after several belts using logical drills that work. Modern life has shown us that the need for more realistic defence systems has increased and instructor Brett Mackenzie is at the forefront of this creating a very enjoyable class.
