Being new to the Gilbert area, I wasn't sure what to expect from the summer camp offered by World Champions Alpha Karv Maga (WCAKM). There was a Groupon deal with a few summer camps and chose WCAKM based on reviews online. The camp goes to 3 field trips (Peter Piper Pizza, newly released movies at H... See More
Master Edmondson and his team have gone to great lengths to ensure a fun learning experience and after only a few classes, I'm hooked. I look forward to learning more about Krav Maga from all the coaches here for many years to come.
WE LOVE World Champions! WE moved to AZ almost 3 years ago and being a black belt myself, needless to say I was picky where i wanted my daughters to train. after trying a few schools, we were so happy we found Mr. Edmondson! He is great with the kids and his coaches are all fantastic - it's like one big family! We have found our home!
World Champions Alpha Krav Maga has something for everyone: from absolute beginner to pro martial artist, stay at home mom to military servicemen, ages 3 and up. The staff is friendly, encouraging, and fun. The instruction is individualized to your level, relevant to your goals, challenging, and also fun! There is so much more that I could write about World Champions, but I encourage you to check it out for yourself. There is usually some kind of deal going on – whether it’s a trial through the center, Yelp credits, or Groupon. The staff and students there are fun, helpful, and encouraging – and skilled in their craft! It will be the last place you need to look. It was for me!
Our 14 year old daughter started taking classes here a year ago. I cannot speak highly enough about the the instructors and what they have done for our daughter. She walks into a room with confidence and now knows she has the strength and skill to take on any situation. As parents of a beautiful, tall, and 100 pound young lady...we find comfort in the fact she could protect herself. We're very proud of her and excited as she progresses through the next levels. In addition to great instructors the facilities are very nice and well maintained.
Great place, terrific instructors!
I never thought martial arts were for me until I felt threatened and concerned for my safety. I wanted "self defense on steroids" and what I've gotten so far by taking Krav Maga classes is beyond my expectations!! The confidence gained and calories burned are SO worth it! I highly recommend it to all my Phoenix valley friends!
I'm a lifer! The coaching staff are awesome and treat you like family. They push you to succeed and celebrate when you do. If you have any desire to be better, stronger, leaner, healthier, or if you just want a place to punch out your frustration, JOIN!!
As I keep telling everyone I know, if I had known how much I would love this type of class, I would have signed up a long time ago. The coaches do a fantastic job of accessing each individual student within a class and adapt the curriculum to meet each person's level and ability. I enjoy the classes so much that I try to always make time for them every week.
What a great blend of family and discipline! Master Edmondson, Coach Esposito and his team are awesome! Couldn't have picked a better place for my kids and I to train.
Great place with an excellent staff. I just joined with my daughter(7) and son (6). They look forward to the weekly classes already. I highly recommend Alpha Krav Maga in Gilbert.
I started coming here because i was bored and needed something that would fill my schedule and encourage me to be consistently fit, but it turns out I'm getting more than just a good workout. I'm actually being taught technique and practical skills that im confident in using in the real world. I've been going here for about 5 months now and since the beginning all the coaches have made each class a comfortable experience. It's lit
I'm a lifer! Absolutely love it. I am in law enforcement and I have to say this is the best close quarters combat training I've ever received. It is 100% applicable to LEO's daily operations. I've used several techniques in recent encounters and they were extremely effective. The coaches and classmates are very friendly and it feels as though you join a Krav family when you walk through the door. This is highly recommended!!
I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Joseph Edmondson in Texas at an Alpha Krav Maga instructor camp where he was assisting Sam Sade in teaching. He has dynamite skills and superb instruction. Do something your future self will thank you for by training with Coach Joseph!
Great training and exercise. Coach Joe is very knowledgeable, assesses your fitness level and pushes just a little above that. Makes it a great workout and coach explains the reason for the mechanics and position of the holds/moves, which helps it all make sense. Great clean facility too!
This gym has great instructors and great workouts. I learn something new with every class I go to!
Amazing class this morning. Just don't kick low. 2 weeks in and I have seen and felt a transformation. First workout in a long, long time that I look forward to. Everyone is energetic and supportive.
If you like learning new techniques, working your @$$ off, and having fun all at the same time, come here!
Going here is the best! Everyone feels like part of the family. The coaches know everyone by name, notice when you aren't there and truly miss you, and most importantly, are constantly pushing you and encouraging you to work your hardest AND be proud of what you have accomplished at the end of a particularly tough class. I can't imagine my week without my regular destress sessions now!
I recently moved here and needed motivation to start working out again and I certainly found it here! I love coming here in the mornings to start my day off right, plus now I'm eating healthier thanks to the eating plan.
this gym is on fire!! what a blast we had last night and i cannot wait for tonight!! so thankful to have found them! it's never too late to get fit!
Awesomeness in a can. :) Coaches are great and very nice. Great all round for me and the kiddo.
I started here 2 months ago and love it! Great place and and great instructors! You should try it out!
Ive been training here for about two months and loved it from the first class i took. I liked the atmosphere here so much i enrolled my daughter in TKD and it has become a family affair now . I highly recommend at the very least come and try a class and see for yourself.
This place is amazing you have to try it!best fighting lessons
