Krav Maga at Tip of Spear

Tip of Spear is the only facility in Alberta that offers civilian self-defense training using the most effective method available: IKMF Krav Maga.  (To learn more, go to What is IKMF Krav Maga.)  This program develops proven personal protection, numerous life skills such as confidence and self-awareness, and physical fitness.  It is open to the public, ages 13 (parental consent required) and up. 


Here is everything you need to know about training with us at Tip of Spear. One question we often get is whether or not someone is good enough, fit enough, or has enough experience to start. Our answer is always: wherever you are at is perfect. All students are encouraged to work at their pace, while continually challenging themselves. Students will never be forced to do something they don't feel comfortable doing. We are here to learn, grow and get better, in our fitness, skills, awareness and confidence!


"Dave is a great teacher in every aspect. He talks to you like a person and has no sense of "I'm better then you". Great person to help educate and build confidence! I highly reccommend him for anything!"

- Amanda M.

"I have always enjoyed combat fitness but this class is different than any class I’ve ever taken. You learn defence manoeuvres for specific real life situations and play games that improve your reaction time and help you feel more comfortable using them. It’s also a great work out and Dave is an amazing instructor! I’m always looking forward to my next class! You’ll feel empowered, fitter, and just have tons of fun."

- Agatha M.

Types of Classes Offered


Weekly Beginner and Advanced Classes (P1 to G1)

This class is split into two groups: one section for people who are first starting out with IKMF Krav Maga, and those who have passed their advanced levels.

Whether you have done little to none before, or have done other martial arts or sports, all students are welcome to start in the beginner class. It is open to the public, ages 13 and up (parental consent required for minors).


Classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Purchase an Unlimited Pass to attend these.

"Honestly the best instruction I’ve ever had the honour of receiving in any combative. The instructor and his assistants are extremely knowledgeable and very good at teaching the theory and how to put it to use in the real world. My wife and I have both been taking the courses together since October and always look forward to going."

- Lee W.

These seminars give a solid understanding on the foundational fundamentals of protecting yourself, including developing self-awareness and confidence.

Students are welcome to come once, or to keep coming to each seminar to keep their skills sharp.

The seminars are 3 hours long, and offered once a month on Saturday mornings. Attend these by booking each seminar individually by date.
