Gideon Hajioff

Krav Maga

Gideon founded Dynamic Self Defence in 2001 with nearly 40 years training experience in security and self defence.

Disciplines include:

Gideon started training in Krav Maga in 1983 and became an Instructor in 1987. He taught specialist units in all aspects of security such as close protection, anti-terrorist and self defence for 30 years.

He started training in Taekwondo in 1973 in which he gained his 3rd Degree Black Belt. He then trained in Boxing and subsequently gained his 5th Degree Black Belt in Choi Kwang Do. For the last 3 years he has been training in-depth in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

He holds a 3rd Degree in civilian Krav Maga and the equivalent of a 5th Degree in security Krav Maga.

Gideon’s vision has always been that no single discipline has all the answers for self defence. Therefore he planned to build a cross-training Academy that would take the most applicable disciplines that could feed into the Krav Maga training – ie Boxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After opening his first civilian self defence classes over 32 years ago, he planned and implemented his vision which fully came into fruition with opening of the Dynamic Self Defence Academy in 2016.

In search for knowledge, Gideon qualified with a first Chinese Medicine Degree in Europe, where he gained a deeper understanding of the human body whilst studying Feldenkrais method and also he qualified as a Craniosacral therapist.

With his accumulated knowledge, he brings experience and understanding through his training to his students. He has a strong passion for fitness and conditioning to enable him to continue a high level of training in his mid-fifties.
