Welcome to the Jon Hegan Academy
The Jon Hegan academy in Upminster was the longest established International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF) School in the UK. Opened in October 1997, many senior instructors within the IKMF and other federations have trained at the academy or privately under Jon Hegan. No other Krav Maga school in the UK can offer the same level of experience in reality based combat or the broad range of martial arts qualifications amongst its instructors.
Krav Maga, taught at the Jon Hegan Academy, is the most up to date, cutting-edge self-defence and hand-to-hand combat system available. It has gained international recognition from Police and military combat instructors as well experts in martial arts as an innovative, effective and highly practical self-defence and fighting method. Krav Maga techniques cover virtually any self defence situation including; fighting on the ground, against multiple attackers and people armed with knives and firearms.
