I have been meaning to write a review from the first day we came to REKM. Reading the reviews below . MI wish I can respond to the gentleman with the one star ! You learned two years from Roy yet you spoke of one day that he was " ticked off ". If I was training someone unappreciative I would be ticked off as well ! Nothing except positive atmosphere with positive pleasant well trained and beautiful staff . Paula is so nice and eager to please , takes more than extra steps to make the arrangement for classes . Gio trains my 14 years son , he was totally against MMA , till we went there , and now my son nags on me to take him train he was getting bullied at school and Gio is teaching him how to defend him self .he boosted his confidence . Thank you so much We really appreciate you . Clean place with reasonable fees $99 for membership . They have different classes but Krav Maga is what they are known for. Give them a try you won't be disappointed !

Hands down the most amazing Krav Maga dojo I've been to in LA...and honestly, ever. And that's coming from someone who's been doing martial arts for 8 years. Sensei Roy is extremely passionate, knowledgeable, and skilled - actually, that's an understatement - at his craft, about his students, and what he does. He very much knows his stuff and us as students couldn't ask for a better instructor and role model let alone be more fortunate to have the opportunity to train with him. The classes are tough and you will most definitely be pushed but it's all in good return. In life, the reality is that if you're not uncomfortable or pushed out of your comfort zone, you won't grow - and what better place to do so than the most kick-ass Krav Maga dojo in LA. An amazing workout and learning invaluable and super practical self-defense skills in one of the cities where it's most needed - ESPECIALLY being a woman? Sign me up! Sensei, the staff, and the students are all wonderful people and very kind, helpful, and welcoming to newbies and veterans alike. Everyone takes the time and makes it a point to help each other out. It's a serious physical and mental workout; but if you're willing to learn and listen, check your ego in at the door, are dedicated and get up and come to class even when you're thinking twice about it, and train with everything you've got, you'll meet and exceed your own expectations and achieve more in a few months than you ever thought possible. REKM makes the journey of physical and mental self-development equally if not even more exciting than the endgame, and I honestly can't wait to see the results of and where my time training here will take me.

Krav, REKM, and Sensei Roy will bring out the fighter in you. Been with REKM for 2 years now and have gained the confidence, the training, and the wits to handle myself in bad situations. This program is not for people who simply want to pay for a martial arts belt. Prepare to have bruises the size of grapefruits, busted knuckles, busted lips, and other badges of true, gritty hard work. The program accommodates every proficiency level and make no mistake--it will push you to work harder and be better.

I love this place! I have trained in other areas of martial arts and contact sports and I get the best all around training at REKM. I started 6 months ago and this is the best decision I have made since I moved to LA. Sensei Roy is tough but it has made me stronger both physically and mentally. I am in much better shape working with him and I know that if I stay here I can only get better. I have met some great friends here as well. This is not a gym. It is a community. Everyone is working hard toward their own goals but has great attitudes and is very welcoming. I recommend joining the will change you for the better.

The owner/instructor Roy is an amazing teacher BUT he has a major temperament and/or psychological issues. I had attended classes for roughly 1 1/2 - 2 years, a while back until... Roy got ticked off because I was going to miss testing for one of the classes. I was not being tested but was just supposed to help out with the testing of the other level (which I would have been happy to do). BUT since the testing date had been rescheduled to a date during which I was to be out of town and already had a flight purchased for, there was no way for me to make it. So in class Roy sparred with me and went extra hard on me intentionally and ended up causing a full fracture + partial dislocation of my right arm. I knew something had happened in the midst of the sparring session but Roy still went on for a couple more minutes (could not get him to stop in the midst of the sparring session). Roy claims to be the only 2-time champion with the Israeli army but when you train your body to be a lethal weapon, you also need to have control of your mind and emotions - which Roy is clearly lacking! So thanks to Roy, I now have a metal plate in my arm. It was a real bummer dealing with the recovery because I was going from sometimes doing 2 super intense classes a day there to not being able to do any upper body workout while my arm healed. I had never sued anyone in my life but felt that this situation would warrant me hiring an attorney. Called the local CA bar association and got referred to an attorney who passed me off to a friend of his because he felt his friend would have a better understanding of the situation since he practiced martial arts. Unfortunately, that attorney never really did anything. But I was able to find out that Krav Maga LA had NO INSURANCE at the time my injury occurred. They had just moved from a leased space which had insurance included within their rent payment to a different space that they were responsible for getting their own insurance for (BUT they had not yet gotten around to it yet)! Plus they claimed that they had NO MONEY and THEY DID NOT PAY A PENNY towards my medical expenses. And to show how organized his brother Tamir, the business manager, is they had even managed to lose the waiver form that I signed when I initially signed up for classes. To ADD INSULT TO INJURY... a while later Tamir contacted me and told me they wanted to do a pay-off to settle things with me. So I drove to Tamir's office in Westwood which he did just to have me sit down and insult me and laugh at me. What a prick! Stay far away from these clowns! I was very forgiving of Roy's temper and lack of control until all this crap happened. A little background on me - I am former military and have done many different types of high intensity sports & workouts including: Football, Wrestling, Karate, Kickboxing, Boxing and more. The fact that they change locations every 1-2 years also seems a bit suspicious to me.

I just began private training recently and have loved every second. The vibe and the people are insanely nice and it makes you want to keep coming back! I highly recommend coming if you are seriously about Krav Maga and being tested to your limit

What an amazing place to boost your skills, confidence and fitness level. The members here are kind, helpful and friendly. I went for a week-long vacation in L.A just to try out the classes. What a great experience! I learned so much in just a week and am eager to continue to train with Krav Maga’s system of training. Sensei Roy is an outstanding teacher, he knows when to step in to step in to challenge you, when to give feedback and when to support your confidence. I wish he was in Vancouver because he has sparked a lifelong change in me. I am so lucky my friend Adina took me there! I recommend everyone to try it out…you will love it and learn a lot about yourself!
