I have known George since I started training with Spartans Academy of Krav Maga in early 2009 and have always found him to be a patient and respectful expert instructor.
He is brilliant at breaking down the Krav Maga self defence system into understandable techniques and demonstrating and coaching these to a wide range of students from young people to those more mature like myself! George is eagle eyed in watching the class, correcting you when needed and providing feedback when you are doing well.

His supportive words help you to get that little 5% extra out of yourself. All this is done with a great sense of fun and humour.

I would wholeheartedly recommend George as an instructor for 1-2-1 or class workouts.
