[KRAV MAGA] It is the most intense, most amazing work-out that I’ve ever experienced in my life, and I kept it up, after the movie, because when it’s all done, it’s so relaxing. Being able to know how to defend yourself was really cool. It was Rob’s idea that I start taking it, for the movie, and I fell in love with it. It also helps me keep my weight down. It’s really intense, and I can kick some ass. I’m getting there!”
- Tyler Perry trained with Krav Maga Worldwide Instructor and Licensee, Eric Sepeda, of Atlanta Krav Maga and Fitness (AKMF), for the movie “Alex Cross” in theaters now.

This is our main program at AKMF. Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time.
Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks.Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.
Each 60 minute class is an excellent workout for all fitness levels. All new students begin in Level 1 classes. You can expect to get in great shape, learn the basic combatives, and self defense. You will spend about 4 months in level 1 before you are invited to take the test for Level 2.

Tyler Perry on Krav Maga
[KRAV MAGA] It is the most intense, most amazing work-out that I’ve ever experienced in my life, and I kept it up, after the movie, because when it’s all done, it’s so relaxing. … It also helps me keep my weight down. It’s really intense, and I can kick some ass. I’m getting there!
ROB COHEN, DIRECTOR “I, ALEX CROSS”
“I wanted the climactic fight of ‘I, Alex Cross’ between Tyler and Matthew Fox to have a true Krav Maga theme…
I asked Krav Maga instructor Eric Sepeda to fly to Cleveland where I was shooting and to help Tyler Perry fight in TRUE Krav Maga style. Not only did he help Perry but was a great help to me and the fight co-ordinator Mark Hicks… The result was a wicked battle royale fought with Krav Maga truth. He did a superlative job.
Easy to remember moves…practical application.

I started going to AKMF about 10 months ago. From day one, I could see that their teachings of self defense and combatives actually work. The instructors are all very knowledgeable and encouraging and always keep you interested and wanting to learn more. Not only have I found a work out that is teaching me how I could save my life or the life of others, it is stress relieving, rigorous, has given me self confidence and I have gone down 5 pant sizes!!! Everyone needs to know this valuable system. It will get you into shape, and can save your life!!!
-Morgan J, Atlanta, GA
Great teachers, great program. No martial art has gotten me in such great shape!
-Matt C, Alpharetta, GA
Practical and immediatly useful.
-A. W, Atlanta, GA
What I found at Atlanta Krav Maga is exactly what I had been seeking – a challenging and intense workout that places a deadly serious emphasis on effective, real world self-defense. There is no watered-down technique here. The instructors are amazing, infinitely patient, and the environment is not intimidating for the everyday average guy like me. It’s very refreshing to train hard in an ego-free environment and have a blast doing it. The workouts never get boring, repetitive, or easy. Every class is interesting and challenging.
