Vault Defence

Vault is the largest & longest running Krav Maga based self defence school in Northern Ireland, established 2006 by Glyn Ashton.  If you are training Krav Maga in Northern Ireland, your instructor trained under Glyn.

We have a team of 18 instructors who regularly train together to maintain our world-class standard and uniformity.  We operate at venues across NI.

Vault is world-leading in self defence knowledge based directly on a wealth of REAL LIFE experience.  We don’t publicly shout about our credentials…ask our students!  

Our syllabus covers:

Open handed skills



 Bladed weapons

Blunt weapons


Situation Awareness and Resilience

Marauding Attacks

Self Defence Law

What You Need To Start

90min Krav Maga classes are currently £8.00 per class for Vault Belfast, Vault Holywood, Vault Banbridge with other Vault classes in the region of £6.00. 

Our classes are Pay As You Go. On your first night of training, you train at your own risk. However, if you want to come back after your first night, you are required to pay for yearly martial arts insurance which costs £8.00. After your third week we require yearly membership fees of £20 per year.

Much of Vault is run cost-neutral, we do this because we are passionate about our content.

Vault Courses

We understand that not all students can commit to weekly classes and due to various reasons would prefer to condense their training.  The 21-hour (3-day) Impact Survival course (IS3) contains the full Vault Krav Maga core syllabus. This is a straight forward easy to learn system.  Open to experienced and non-experienced individuals.

Other specialised courses (eg VMAD) are run by instructors with elite skill-sets, training and experience that cannot be bought.

Advanced tactical training for those needing tailored packages can also be accommodated.  We are very well aware of the prevalent Walther-Mitty issue re: this type of content elsewhere so please do contact us to discuss training options.
