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.
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 young son and I could not be happier with our experience so far. He loves it, which means I love it. The programs are well thought out, The staff is helpful and eager to teach. A great environment to for anyone to learn a valuable skill while having fun. I Highly recommend for any age, gender or level of fitness. You guys Rock!
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’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!
The BEST personal investment I have made in my kids’ lives. It's not just the lessons in self-defense I am referring to (although they are exceptional) BUT rather the personal, intentional investing this like-minded group of instructors and support staff consistently pours into each student every single week. They inspire students to grow mentally and physically.
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!
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.
Parents want the best for their kids! Not all schools are the same. KMMA is EXTRAORDINARY! It is many steps beyond the rest. We were blessed with two kids that are FULL OF ENERGY. KMMA is the perfect fit for them. They are kept moving all the time, and they never sit out waiting for their turn. They get their aerobic activity while learning real life defense skills. My kids are learning real techniques to protect themselves. Most importantly, they are learning how to be good human beings during the class. Academic schools do not have the time to really create a good human being with wholesome values. They can say they do it, but they really do not have time for this with all the state requirements and bureaucracy that must be met. A good human being takes time to nurture and develop. KMMA is truly committed to this task. The way a business will succeed and flourish is by its' leaders. It is a pyramid effect. The philosophy at the top ripples to the bottom. Great leadership is definitely seen from the Grand Master, to the instructors, all the way down to the students. Kids absorb everything they are surrounded by. The instructors at KMMA are exceptional role models for my kids to learn from. They are kind, understanding, and great leaders. Before my kids are promoted to the next level, they must document their self discipline, healthy lifestyle, and the leadership roles they are performing in addition to their regular skills training. The classes are always fun. My kids love KMMA! Before you go anywhere else, try KMMA! You will not regret it, and your kids will be truly happy! Don't miss out on your blessing!

Great environment for families and individual training! I've been very impressed with the culture and quality of instructors at Tampa Krav Maga. My individual instruction has been outstanding, and the class atmosphere is one I'm happy to bring my children to and learn in.
My son and I have been a part of the KMMA family for just over a year now and we love it. Not only do we learn the best self defense techniques on the planet, but we also learn life lessons and wisdom from Mr. Del Castillo and his highly trained staff. Everyday we learn something new, get a good workout and have fun. We will be members for life.
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.
