Apolaki Krav Maga & Dirty Boxing Academy is the first and only full time Krav Maga school in London. Day time, evening and weekend classes, one to one self defence personal training, intensive martial arts courses and Krav Maga instructor courses.
Established in 2012.
Apolaki Krav Maga & Dirty Boxing is an explosive and dynamic street defence system. We are dedicated to teaching practical personal safety and effective tools against real-life situations.
The foundation of our system is traditional Krav Maga, but through cross-training in other systems such as Kapap, Boxing, Filipino martial arts, Muay Thai, Pencak Silat, Jeet Kune Do and No-Gi submission wrestling, Kelina has created something very special that she wants to share with you. With our own syllabus and grading system, the Apolaki Krav Maga & Dirty Boxing® system is constantly evolving and improving, as any street survival system should be!
