Chief Instructor

Marc Smith is the founder and Chief Instructor of Ultra Krav Maga. Marc has studied Krav Maga for 10 years and reached Expert level as well as being a fully qualified Fire Arms Special Tactics (F.A.S.T) Instructor.  Marc teaches with an unrelenting passion, engagement and enthusiasm which is driven with the sole aim to help everyone be able to defend themselves (and their loved ones) in times of troubles – so as Imi Lichtenfeld once said “we can walk in peace’.

Marc has studied many forms of combat including Boxing, Judo and Taekwondo before discovering Krav Maga in 2005. Marc immediately fell in love with Krav Maga for its aggression, simplicity and effectiveness.

Marc started his Krav Maga journey with IKMF before moving to KMG – the global governing body of Krav Maga run by Eyal Yanilov to complete his practitioner grades. Upon doing so Marc was hand-selected to undertake the 28 days Intense KMG Instructor Course. After 28 grueling days under the guidance and teachings of Ilya Dunsky (Expert 4) Kvores Tal (Expert 5),  Zeev Cohen (Master 2) and Eyal Yanilov (Master Chief / founder) – Marc emerged with the joint top grade of G2 awarded by Eyal Yanilov himself.

In 2013 Marc successfully undertook his United Association Krav Maga Instructor diploma under the teachings of Tomasz Adamczyk – Chief Head Instructor of United Krav Maga World Association, before becoming the UK Director for CKMI (Combat Krav Maga Association) - widely regarded as the most modern and effective Krav Maga system created.

1-2-1 tuition is available from some of our instructors and covers the entire spectrum of self-defense and fitness to suit all levels of experience and fitness – ideal for those who wish to learn at their own pace privately.
