Celebrities Who Do Krav Maga


You’ll quite often find that a lot of people have never heard of Krav Maga, because it is a fairly unknown self-defence sport. Here are a few A-listers who are showing that Krav Maga isn’t only for the military…

Daniel Craig

Famous for his role in a number of the James Bond movies, Daniel Craig was training for the physical aspects that his character required before Casino Royale. With this, he began working with Darren Levine who is the founder of Krav Maga Worldwide. Levine helped Craig build up his now famous stature for the role of 007, noting that many Hollywood stars choose the sport because it can be a fun way of performing an effective workout.

Tyler Perry

As an American actor, comedian, author and many more, Perry trained in Krav Maga for the movie Alex Cross in 2012. He described it as ‘the most intense workout that I’ve ever experienced’ and has even continued it post-movie. He is most famous in the Krav Maga world for a 30 pound weight loss as the sport helped him to shift a lot of the weight.

Hilary Swank

In 2008, Swank mentioned on a red carpet that she was keeping fit with Krav Maga. She was credited as saying ‘you punch, you kick, you also learn how to get out of a choke hold. I love, love it’ showing that Krav Maga really is as the name translates from Hebrew- a contact combat sport.

As these stories prove, Krav Maga can be for anyone and anything. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, train for a movie or just learn some self-defence skills, get in contact with the best personal trainer Tenerife has to offer and do it like the celebrities do!
