What We Offer
Originating in the Israeli Defence Force, Krav Maga is a modern tactical martial art system built on simple principles, instinctive movements, and practical techniques. Over the years it has proven to be a highly effective self-defence system in some of the most dangerous environments around the world.
Krav Maga is a modern, brutally effective and practical self-defence system that anyone can learn – using techniques that makes it simple to learn and extremely effective to use.
Why X Fighting
Krav Maga is about more than just learning to fight. At X Fighting, we believe in providing the best self-defence instruction available, focusing on practical training scenarios with high-quality teaching and attention in every session.
We aim to not only equip you with the skills needed to defend yourself – but also the ability to recognise danger signs, respond to the physical and mental stress of an attack, avoid unnecessary risks, and to learn how to de-escalate potentially violent and hostile situations.

Our Head Instructor Saar Markovitch has 12 years’ tactical experience in Krav Maga, having been drafted into the Israeli Army where he served as an Air Force Intelligence Officer.
Following his time in the service, Saar expanded his knowledge under the guidance of some of the disciplines most respected masters; learning the importance of striking, reaction, speed, precision and technicality whilst developing an in-depth understanding of Krav Maga.
“My focus today is sharing that accumulated self-defence knowledge with the right people, with people who look to defend themselves and protect the people around them.” – Saar Markovitch
Don’t just listen to us. Here’s what our students say about X Fighting.
It’s always good to be challenged and you guys never fail to deliver. The Krav Maga experience with X Fighting has been awesome and I’d recommend them to anyone!
– Luke S., Randwick
I started with no experience in self-defence or working out – from the moment I joined I felt welcome at my entry level, and there’s a really strong sense of community from Saar and the team at X Fighting. Since starting Krav Maga I’ve felt stronger, fitter, and have made amazing friends along the way.
– Stacey T., Bondi Beach
