    I first met Lloyd a few years ago at the premier event organised by KMG UK which is their annual P and G camp. I was struck by how friendly and personable he was and by his obvious love for Krav Maga.

    Fast forward a couple of years and I have had the privilege to train with him and spend time with him at various events. He is a great person to be around as he brings his fun-loving, upbeat and positive energy with him, which is contagious.

    Make no mistake though, despite being a friendly, approachable guy he takes his Krav Kaga very seriously!

    Knowing Lloyd for the past 3 years plus and having trained with him as a training partner and as an instructor he has always given 100% to his training and promotes his students to do the same.

    Whether that be a physical demonstration or a verbal instruction the techniques are fully explained and the reasons why Krav Maga is a simple but effective system.

    Lloyd has also taught my 7 year old child previously and as a parent his enthusiasm and energy are something to be witnessed.

    A straight up no nonsense professional.

    Lloyd is a very professional and capable instructor. I saw him go from a very impressive student of Krav Maga, to a highly respected Instructor.

    He trains and corrects pupils in an encouraging way and is also happy to take feedback on his training. Although the concept of Krav Maga is of a serious nature, Lloyd can still make a class enjoyable and fun without undermining the importance of what we were learning.

    Lloyd makes a concious effort to get to know his pupils and his amiable and approachable demeanour makes it very easy to ask questions, no matter how obvious or silly it may seem.

    I have had the pleasure of watching Lloyd teach my daughter Krav Maga for a little over a year and can honestly say he has the perfect balance of fun & discipline in the class.

    I Always knew my daughter was totally safe in his hands and when my daughter did on a few occasions struggle with some moves Lloyd showed patience and understanding and gave her the extra help and confidence to tackle those moves.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!

    Lloyd has been a fantastic Krav Maga instructor to me, instilling confidence in my abilities as well ensuring I am using the correct technique.

    His lessons are always well structured which makes even the most complicated move easy to master. Kida!

    My boys have been doing Krav Maga for about a year and it's the best self defence class they could have gotten into.

    It's built their confidence and self esteem so much and it's thanks to their teacher Lloyd. Watching him work and have patience with my boys was a pleasure to watch.

    One of the best trainers by far. Not only is Lloyd excellent with all the kids he teaches but he is excellent with the parents too. He is willing to listen to opinions and observations and take on board what they are saying... And act on it, if it's beneficial to the child and/or class.

    A genuinely nice man who has the children's best interests at heart.

    Lloyd was a great instructor, he always managed to get through to the kids and teach them what they needed to learn but always made the lesson fun and enjoyable.

    He genuinely cared about the kids and was passionate for them to learn and grow in their strengths.

    I’ve been lucky enough to train with Lloyd both as a training partner and as a student for the last three years and his love for Krav Maga shows, not only when training but when passing that knowledge on as well.

    When teaching he explains the techniques in a way that is easy to understand and with humour, breaking it down so that it’s not an information overload but also why it is done that way.

    Both my kids have also been lucky enough to be taught by him. His teaching style kept the attention of a class of kids focused on him so that they could understand the subject being taught.

    So I can highly recommend Lloyd as an instructor to help you or your children on their self defence journey with Krav Maga

    Lloyd makes learning KMG easy and fun and always helps you when you need it. I am delighted to have been part of his classes,

    The best thing about Lloyd is that he enjoys teaching KMG and he takes it very seriously so makes you feel confident about your self and your leaning.

    I have known Lloyd for about 2 years as a Krav Maga instructor, he has been an excellent instructor to the new students all the way up to the more experience Students, which I have been both.

    He is not only knowledgeable about the subject but his friendly and encouraging manner brings the best out in you.

    I would be more than happy to train with Lloyd and recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

    I first started doing Krav Maga for exercise and due to worries about what I would do if I ran into trouble. I was nervous on my first lesson but everyone was friendly including the instructor and made me feel welcomed. I enjoy the the opportunity to let loose after a stressful day at uni . No two lessons are ever the same ,so you never get bored and time flies as you focus on your techniques. I especially enjoy psychological aspects of self defense I never though of before ,such as de-escalation,which has really opened my eyes. The instructor Lloyd is a stand up guy,very funny and knowledgeable about what he teaches. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in self defense, getting into shape or just simply want to do something new to try Apex Krav Maga !

    I started Krav Maga earlier this year with no knowledge of any self defence. I enjoy every class and have learnt a lot in the time I have been training. The classes have also boosted my confidence. Lloyd is a great Krav Maga instructor making you feel at ease in the classes and confident in each technique. He makes every class very interesting and it’s a brilliant atmosphere. I would recommend these classes to anyone.

    Learning Krav Maga is a big eye opener to how easily you can learn to defend yourself against numerous types of attacks and threatening situations. Whilst classes are tough Lloyd is a great teacher and makes them enjoyable and you definitely walk away from each session knowing you have learnt something new that will stay with you.

    Been at Apex from the start and absolutely love training. Lloyd is an outstanding coach and really gives his all to to ensure that every member gets all they can from each session. Apex is a great club to be part of and training is very intense. Both me and my son are developing a set of very useful, real world ready self defence skills that I hope we will never need but if required will give us the best possible chance of walking away in one piece.

What our Students Say….

"Amazing club. Can't wait for the next lesson! Loads of skills and new experiences in every lesson. Feeling myself a lot more confident and motivated, even staying away from any sport for a long time. Lloyd makes everything look easy and sensible, without boring routines and speeches, tries to answer all your questions, which makes lessons more educational"

"I have always wanted to learn self defence. So when I heard about Krav Maga I jumped at the chance to try. I have been so happy with the way this is taught in a friendly, disciplined and fun environment. I am not only learning something new each week and feeling more confident with myself but have also made great friends."
- Hinta

"Being a Store Detective I get daily confrontations. knowing now, I can better stand my ground, helps me a great deal. The techniques taught are simple but VERY effective, and have been useful, to me personally. My confidence has grown a great deal too, I just want to add that KRAV MAGA, is something I wish I had learnt 10 years ago! Every lesson is a great bonus. Thanks Lloyd."
- Dave

"I joined Apex Krav Maga to protect myself and to avoid dangerous situations whilst backpacking through different countries. But I did not realise I would enjoy Krav Maga so much! Lloyd is an excellent instructor, he makes you feel very comfortable and boosts your confidence through his personable instructor style and sense of humour. He highlights the seriousness of situations and how to de-escalate them before we even need to physically defend ourselves. We have learnt a variety of martial art skills; from basic punches, kicks and how to defend yourself against knife attacks. We also learnt techniques from other martial art skills including filipino boxing. Every lesson is varied and always great fun! I would like to thank Lloyd in particular as he focused several of his lessons to potential backpacking situations including preventing your bag being stolen. I would recommend Apex Krav Maga to anyone. The lessons are very informative whilst also being great fun. Lloyd and the rest of the group are so welcoming and friendly. It has increased my confidence tremendously to go out and explore the world whilst knowing ways to protect myself if needs be."
