My work with Adam Griffith has been exhausting and exhilarating. He has given to me the confidence to control my fear. KM is a great “ tool” for self confidence in the city.

I have been training with Adam for about 2 years now. He is one of the most technically proficient Krav Maga practitioners I have come across. While skill level is crucial in an instructor, what has impressed me most about Adam is his willingness to work on my specific goals. He has shown flexibility in accommodating my requests in terms of regimen/drills, while still adhering to the training format at Krav Maga Federation. I unreservedly recommend Adam to anybody interested in learning the real core of this often-misunderstood self-defence system.

Adam is amazing. An excellent, supportive instructor, he's helped me progress much faster than I would have otherwise. He can demonstrate and explain concepts in a way that is easy to understand and follow. He can work at my pace, and I've been able to get immediate feedback from the specifics of the form I was working on up to the philosophy of how to approach self-defense in various situations. The training is no-nonsense: direct and practical, there's no fluff. From basic strikes, punches and kicks, to more advanced self-defense such as against choking, grabs, weapons, he can teach it all in a very accessible and practical manner. I feel more comfortable in the street and in uncertain environments thanks to his training.

Adam has been a fantastic instructor. He's patient, flexible, and very knowledgeable. He pushes you to learn more and try your hardest while still making the practice accessable to any level of proficiency.


  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It depends on the individuals goals, but usually we begin with sharpening the weapons, ie: working on punches, kicks, knees and elbows. Next we focus on different scenarios: attack against x,y, or z. And then I usually allow time for questions about specifics and offer suggestions for at home drilling.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have trained in Krav Maga for 14 years, and Brazilian Jui Jitsu for 5 years.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I had always wanted to try martial arts, and when a friend described Krav Maga as a “no nonsense way to win a street fight,” I was hooked!
