Krav Maga – Grading System
A core belief of Krav Maga is that the ability to remain safe and effectively execute self defense techniques under pressure is far more important than receiving a new colour belt. However, we do recognize that aiming for a higher grade can motivate people to train harder and therefore improve.

Beginner levels – P1 to P5
Intermediate and Instructor levels – G1 to G5
Advanced, police and military instructor levels – E1 to E5

Climbing from one level to the next in the Practitioner and Graduate level respectively takes about 4 to 6 months of consistent training.
It takes between one to four years to pass from one Expert
