I have never post any review in google before because I was not confident with my English as a foreigner. But I'll try to share some of my experience in FMC now because it might help someone for their decision making hopefully.I have been training in FMC(including former IDF CBD) for more than one year. I love the gym and enjoy every class I attended. Like many other gyms they have professional instructors, friendly members and top facilities. And I found there are quite a few most amazing parts I got in FMC which are probably hard to find elsewhere.1. FMC provides classes for both modern martial arts/sports fighting(like kick-boxing, bjj) and self defence (Krav Maga) so one of the benefits for members is we can train both kinds of techniques and learn their differences. There are many doubts, discussions and debates regarding if "fighting sports" can be effective in a real situation. You can find all the answers here! Josh always explains in detail what limitations the sports techniques have and how to convert them and what should be aware of when applying to a real situation. Much of the knowledge are directly from his personal street fights experience (unfortunately:)).2. Josh is extremely responsible as a instructor. Many instructors in other places just give some instructions and then look around without giving more guidance even seeing some mistakes. Many times as a beginner we are only able to get guidance from training parters if we are lucky enough. But in FMC apart from senior partners' guides, each time after technique demo Josh always walks by everyone and corrects every mistake he finds and points out the corrections/improvements by demo against the specific personal issues. So even in a 45 mins class I can get personal guides several times.3. During the 15 months training I am feeling the classes are keeping evolving. The classes provided, timetable, techniques structure and distribution, teaching style and even techniques themselves are continue to got improved and optimised. And Josh likes to listen to students' feedback and always encourage us to give him our thoughts. I am a person truly believe in evolving and continuous improvements and I can see FMC is taking their job very serious.So I highly recommend FMC.

I did FMC's one week free trial and went mainly to the Krav Maga sessions. Gotta say, the Krav Maga sessions were pretty damn good. They were extremely practical. When we did the exercises, Josh (the main instructor) made sure our partners simulated real life attacks (and put proper force into them - while still being safe!). This might sound scary to some, but it's done in a controlled environment. And unless you get exposed to these situations with decent force behind the attacks, you're not going to learn how to properly defend yourself in real life. Every time I stepped out of Josh's classes I feel like I learnt something very practical and valuable for my self defence.Another thing to keep in mind, particularly for women who want to learn self defence; I found it *really* valuable to partner up with a guy. You learn what it's like to have someone decently heavier and stronger attack you/get on top of you. I learnt how hard you have to fight back, and how important your technique is to get them off and defend yourself. They'll also give you advice on what is working and what's not so you can better defend yourself.Super valuable classes and I would 100% recommend them. The other classes also looked really interesting. I think it's good to upskill yourself in the other trainings so you can put them all together to make your defence stronger. I'll want to try BJJ next.Thanks Josh and FMC for the week so far! It's been fun and a great learning experience.

I trained here whilst travelling after recommendation from a guy I trained with at a Thai Boxing camp in Thailand. The gym has great facilities and as it's accessible 24 hours I had no excuse. The best training was in the day, Josh (one of the coaches) is a legend is a legend legend in Melbourne and a very humble guy. With a few pointers he's made my left roundhouse super fast and unstoppable! Will definitely be back when I get back travelling.

I joined last December and started with no background in martial arts or any form of fighting; it was definitely an intimidating thought for me at first, however once I visited the gym and had my first class, my mindset was changed. The instructors are well experienced and are more than welcoming - not only do they help everyone get the most out of each class, they also motivate you to want to improve. There's great energy in every class, making you feel energised and look forward to the following one. The best quality about FMC is that they welcome all demographics: every level of experience, a wide age range, and provide a comfortable training environment for all. I also believe that the pricing is great for such quality classes in a convenient location.

Which is a little problem for my wife...but not for my body and my mind! Very happy to have discovered that place! Highly recommended.

The effort and the enthusiasm that the FMC team puts into their teaching cannot be found in many places these days.From the moment I stepped into the gym I was welcomed like a family. Everybody in the gym including the instructors and the students helped me achieve my best during each session. OSS
