KAPAP Level 1 Instructor Course®

I’m proud to announce that Sam Markey Chief KAPAP UK instructor will be teaching a KAPAP level 1 self-defence instructor course. KAPAP was brought to the UK in 2003 by Sam who travelled and trained with Avi Nardia so several years in the USA. He is Avi Nardia’s highest ranking and most advanced instructor and has been steadily building a great reputation in the self-defence world.

This is an introductionary course in firearms, teaching firearms handling and want to do if you ever faced with the threat in the UK and even more so when travelling abroad.



KAPAP self defence seminars and workshops

These seminars are open to anyone wanting to learn modern realistic self-defence.  Kapap UK also offer seminars and instructor courses around the UK & Ireland.




I just completed the level 1 kapap course, I’ve been doing different types of martial arts and self defence for many years, and I was very impressed with the course.

Sam took the 5 day course, his knowledge and style of teaching made everyone comfortable which made the learners learn the kapap techniques more easily.

The system covers a wide variety of techniques both empty hand aswell as weapons, single attacks to multiple attacks, the kapap leaves no stone unturned. I would recommend it to anyone.

The KAPAP ethos of family, no bull and big ego’s is positively refreshing to say the least. Sam has an amazing amount of knowledge and I have nothing but admiration for his teaching style.

Since starting my own small KAPAP club in Great Yarmouth support from Sam and other members of the KAPAP UK community has been absolutely brilliant and I can’t thank them enough for this.
