Welcome!

Welcome to the DPA Krav Maga International Blog! The purpose of this blog is to keep students, parents or guardians informed in regards to class schedules, cancellations, belt promotions or other events. I also will be offering online training for anyone who is interested in training from home or do not have access to a martial arts facility. DPA Krav Maga is a self defense based martial art for all ages. Our system is not designed for combat sports tournaments or mixed martial arts (MMA). We train for the purpose of self defense, when the only viable option is to save yourself or loved ones from harm. DPA represents Dynamic Personal Achievement. Our motto is to develop respect for one's self and others in conjunction with a state of health and wellness; achieved through the martial arts.

Every belt promotion certificate includes the following creed which we expect all our students to follow.


"I pledge to use my training purely for self defense and never for aggression. I will practice situational awareness to avoid conflict at all times. Only when there are no options of escape will I turn to my martial art. Honour your rank, peers, fellow martial artists and yourself. May your belts forever uphold the standards established by DPAKMI as we continue to aim for solidarity and mastery in the art."

Thank you for visiting our blog! If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a distance learning student of DPAKMI please feel free to contact me at deanalyward@gmail.com.
