Highly recommended. Excellent Real-World self-defense training. Many years of experience in the world of martial arts and very impressive black belt retention compared to other schools in the area. This is a dojo that caters to adults and children. When I was looking for a school for my son, I specifically looked for one that had significant adult student enrollment. To me, it is a measure of how real, how serious and how effective the school is. It’s not just child’s play, it’s the real deal.

We are loving the family class at Tampa Krav Maga! When Grand Master Steve presented my three children and I with our white belts, he had the perfect words of encouragement for each one of us. The environment is welcoming and fun, with knowledgeable instructors who are excited to teach. I love it, and we are all looking forward to gaining skills, discipline and focus, while having a good time together. Thank you so much!

My family has 3 generations studying KMMA with Shihan Stephen Del Castillo. We think this is a grand opportunity for all age groups to study with the fine staff assembled here.

I love everything about this place! I went for a free women's self-defense class and then was offered a two week trial of their Krav Maga classes and I loved them! This style of martial arts is so much better than the karate I took as a kid! There are no katas or routines to learn; it's all about self-defense. You hit your attacker with everything you've got and get home safely. You can do these techniques whether you're a 300 pound man or a 100 pound grandmother. I was concerned, at first, that I wouldn't be able to do this sort of thing because of my back and neck problems, but I was encouraged to work at my own pace and everyone has been very accommodating. I've been going for just over two months now and I can already stand a lot longer than I could before and I'm getting stronger with every class! I've found that many of the other adults have similar limitations or old injuries and we've all been able to do these classes. If you're not sure if you can do it, do a two week free trial and find out! You might be surprised. I also love the welcoming, family atmosphere here! The instructors all learned my name right away and have welcomed me to every class. They use a lot of positive reinforcement and high fives, so I always feel good there. Finally, I love what I'm learning there! I can already defend myself from chokes, headlocks and some knife attacks and I also know how to hit back hard and fast! As a single woman, I love knowing that I can defend myself if attacked! That alone is invaluable! I feel stronger and more self-confident and that feeling has carried over into my everyday life. I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone take these classes!

I've been attending class at KMMA for several years and I can tell you that it is a great place to train. The staff are friendly and professional. It is great for all ages, male or female, there is something for everyone at every level. If you are considering getting started or a seasoned martial artist go a visit. You will not be disappointed.

This is an absolutely great place to train. The staff is very knowledgeable and very helpful and it’s just an all-around fantastic atmosphere. I cannot say enough good things about KMMA. It’s run by great people who really love the martial arts and love to teach people. You absolutely cannot go wrong training at KMMA.

If you are around me for more than 5 minutes, you will hear me talk about Tampa Krav Maga. I recommend it to everyone. KMMA has been life-changing for myself and my children; my original intent was to give my homeschool boys an opportunity to learn and perfect a skill - but it is so much more. The instructors are incredible, the skills practiced are empowering, the personal growth is phenomenal! We have made new friends and feel connected like extended family to the staff and fellow trainees.

I’ve been involved in the martial arts for several years now and I am very picky about where I train. I know that a great martial arts master has the protentional to influence every single thing that I do. Not only will they protect my life by teaching me certain self-defense skills but the way in which I deliver those skills, my attitude and my demeanor will be impacted by my teacher. I chose to train at Krav Maga Martial Arts (KMMA) in Land O’Lakes because when Grand Master Steve Del Castillo teaches, he’s not just delivering a product or service… he is reinforcing a lifestyle and providing leadership training that will be with me for the rest of my life. Some people may be a little intimidated by the aggressive nature of Krav Maga as self-defense training. At KMMA, students can train in a way that provides them real world experience that comes from practice however KMMA delivers the lessons in a way that I can still give my best; whether sparring or practicing without being intimidated because of the aggressive nature of Krav Maga. Families train here alongside individuals including business people, college students and people of all ages. Personally, I travel a lot for my job and when I couldn’t take a class, I really missed it and could not get the same impact of just simply training on my own. Now and since the Covid19 response, KMMA offers a virtual alternative to training which I have to admit has kept me in shape and connected to the leadership lessons I utilize every day. If you have been curious about Krav Maga…the virtual class is a great way to step into the dojo…. of course, if you go in-person you will be welcomed and will feel comfortable to try new things….and maybe even train with me too!

This place is amazing!!! Truly one of a kind!!! From the moment you step into the dojo everyone is friendly, positive and make you feel like you're family. The self-defense and personal development they teach they has a real life application that the instructors have gained through experience and wisdom. I have gained so much from my time here and I'm proud to say that I am a member for life!!! I would definitely recommend it to any of my family and friends!!!

I have never felt better about my health and my capacity to keep myself and my family safe than since I joined the KMMA family. My son an I have worked with all the instructors and I can honestly say that they have all taught us something different about ourselves and our capabilities. I could not ask for a better group of people to influence our lives and encourage us to always reach higher than we think possible. Thank you
