Nashville Krav Maga opened its doors in June 2012 offering premier self-defense training in Krav Maga. We have since grown our goal of being the leader in self-defense by offering a complete Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program. By combining two of the greatest self-defense disciplines in the world, Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we continue the goal of becoming a preeminent, full-service training center, dedicated to providing the finest Krav Maga, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and fitness instruction in the Middle Tennessee area.

At Nashville Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we pride ourselves on having reality-based training that simulates real life confrontations. We don’t incorporate any techniques or training methods unless they are simple. proven, and effective for everyday situations. We’ve spent a great deal of time, energy, and effort perfecting exercises that help develop an aggressive fighting spirit without sacrificing student safety.

In January 2016 we moved to Franklin, Tennessee. This allowed us to further our objective of reaching the community and to provide premium self-defense training for adults and children alike. We offer well over 30 instructional hours per week of group classes in self-defense and fitness to hundreds of clients wanting to become safer and increase their fitness. Additionally, NKM&BJJ provides group training to law enforcement agencies, women’s groups, and other community groups.


Nashville Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu believe every individual on the planet is unique, has a specific purpose, and cannot be replaced. No one should walk in fear or feel as though they “can’t”. There is only one you and you are worth being saved! To accomplish that goal, we address self-defense in a three-pronged attack: fitness, “fighting spirit”, and technical instruction. Ultimately, the only person responsible for your safety and quality of life is YOU! Our goal is to bring out the YOU that is inside so that each of us can reach our full potential and positively impact our friends, families, and communities. Sign up for a class today!
