Xtreme Krav Maga is absolutely the best place to train. You also have the added bonus in that you learn the most efficient, fluid and common sense self-defense system there is. The way it is taught makes it a complete system. Steve Sulze and his instructors are extremely well versed on their techniques and make learning fun and challenging. The best part; there are no gym egos here. Everyone helps everyone and you always feel like your training is important to everyone there.... because it is!!!!

The self defense class I took was incredible & I can't wait to get back. Highly recommended!
Kristin Peterson
I was super nervous about starting, especially since you just jump right in to learning. But the staff is AMAZING and will teach you everything you need to know. It's a great mix of Cardio, and Krav Maga in one hour. Couldn't have found a better use to get in shape, AND learn skills that are VERY helpful in today's society.

I am no spring chicken and was apprehensive, but XKM staff is the best. They are friendly and supportive and not intimidating. Absolutely one of the best thing I have done for myself!

XKM was not only friendly in getting me started, they worked with me and others like me who were not at the peak fitness level and treated us as equals. The staff are attentive and respond quickly and the instructors are not only knowledgeable but genuinely love to pass on their knowledge and expertise while embodying the humility and respect that Imi would encourage.

We brought our Girl Scout troop here for a one hour class and learned a lot. Our instructor Patty was great and had a good rapport with our girls.
Sarah Manchester Woldridge
They were so good with teaching our little first grade girl scouts some very valuable self defense techniques! Thank you.
Michael Bianchi
Took the active shooter defense seminar and it was awesome. The guys did a great job of simulating the chaos and realism of an active shooter situation as well as exposing any physical or mental limitations you may have. Everyone should take this class.

The workouts are awesome! It's always something different, fun and challenging. All of the instructors are fantastic. If you want to get serious about fitness- this is your place. If you want to learn self defense, you will find nothing better. The facility is big and accommodating. A must see!!!

While getting ready this morning, I opened a drawer noticed how many of my shirts were "Krav" shirts. It got me thinking about my journey with XKM.January 2016, I participated in a 6 Week Challenge at Xtreme Krav Maga in Fenton. I remember being told that this was " a lifestyle change, not a 6 Week Challenge." Honestly, I scoffed at the idea. In previous years, I had memberships at a handful of gyms. I'd sign up hopeful and by about month 2 I'd lose interest; I assumed this would be the same. A year and half later I'm still punching, elbowing, kneeing, and kicking ass lol. The missing piece that XKM has that traditional gyms didn't is community and built in support system. I feel like I am part of a team and in a sense I am. The girls (& guys) I work out with hold each other accountable. If you skip class or aren't putting in your all, you're getting called out by your team. We strive for growth and push each other to succeed. (Shout out to Cory's Monday/Wednesday 5pm class!)ALL of the instructors are beyond amazing and are truly masters at what they do. It was intimidating walking into my first class; I thought this would be a male dominated gym. However, I've never felt like the instructors differentiated between male/female. They've never babied me nor have they pushed me over my limit. They expect you to work hard and bust your ass; with the best of intentions. After all, unlike running on a treadmill; my Krav workouts could one day save my life. Imi, the founder of Krav Maga designed it "so that one may walk in peace." XKM has given me peace. It is my reset button when life becomes hard. It gives me clarity. It has allowed me to push my body beyond what I thought it was capable of; then further. It has taught me the skills I need to protect myself and hold my head high in an unkind world. Being a part of the Xtreme Krav Maga community is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Thank you to everyone on this journey. �

You will not be disappointed by this place and everyone is friendly, easy going and patient with you. All the teachers are experienced, certified and capable and patient with you. I go there for personal reasons and after attending any one of the beginner classes and even the women's class, I have a weight lifted off of me, a wonderful and unexpected feeling. It's a feeling that you feel like you can face another day and keep going. I feel blessed these guys are here and I hope for a long while. (y)

I always thought my leg workouts were the toughest for me until I started doing Krav Maga. Awesome workout and requires a nap afterwards �
Becky Ringkamp-Wells
First week of class, and it is great. I am being challenged every step of the way while getting any aggression out as well. lol Steve is the instructor in this class but I can see that all of the Instructors are well trained and lead challenging classes. This is a great place to learn self defense while working out at the same time, They also have yoga and target toning classes that I will also be taking advantage of as it is also included. The instructors want you to stay motivated and let you know that you can come in at anytime to workout. If you have to miss your class for what ever reason you can go to another class that day. There is no babysitting for children (or adults) but they do have classes for children as well, which is a great way to get the kids into a good habit that they will take with them all their lives. I do recommend you getting gloves to protect your hands but this is done barefoot on mats.

Great workshop Great workout this week. Enjoying and not enjoying the work...lol

Today was my first experience with Krav Maga and I loved it. I think it's something all women need to do. Steve our instructor was amazing and I can't wait to go back!
Erin Lynn Attkisson-Dorsey
This place is unlike any other place I've been. You aren't just a client here. You feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. People genuinely care about you. You aren't lost in the shuffle. Everyone is humble. I've not met anyone with an "I'm better than you" attitude. This is the place to be. If you haven't tried it, you are missing out.

Attended a runner's self-defense class and learned practical skills I feel I will be able to apply easily in any situation where I may feel my safety is threatened. The instructor provided a good mix of information with hands-on practice of skills. He also threw in enough humor to help participants relax and be able to focus during the serious stuff. Highly recommend xkm-stl!

Amazing group of instructors. There is no pressure to be a "kickass MMA or Krav Maga type". They all truly have a passion to improve their customers skill to defend yourself in a possible violent encounter. The owner is a great guy and really pushes for quality control in everything he does. Please if you are worried about these changing times go see these guys they are great people.

What 5, Nice people, helpful instructors, forgiving spar partners, self punishing workouts, terrific facility, wonderful with kids, my 9 year old daughter loves it, excellent workshops like CCW, Intro to guns for women, tactical gun defense. My only regret, I wish I had known about it years ago.

Participated in a group class at CF26 and will absolutely be trying out the facility in Fenton. Steve is passionate and extremely knowledgeable on the topics of self-defense and Krav Maga and very effectively teaches skills that can be used to protect yourself in a variety of situations. He also emphasizes the importance of awareness in all situations you may find yourself in, which I believe is one of the most important parts of protecting yourself. Very valuable, I recommend it to anyone and everyone. Can't wait to get into more of the classes.

This is literally a second home to me. From the first day I walked into Xtreme Krav Maga, I was treated with nothing but respect. All of the instructors worked with me patiently and took my safety and fitness very seriously. They train for real life situations. Every trainer I have worked with genuinely wants to make sure you leave better equipped to make it home safely. I have been a member of a number of gyms and I never felt more welcomed at any other facility! Plus it doesn't hurt I am in the best shape I have ever been in AND was able to lose all of my baby weight 3 months after having my daughter. Yeah... this place is great!read more

Steve and all of his staff are incredibly professional. They not only care about your fitness and ability to self-defend, but they care about you as a person. They meet you at whatever level you are at. The gym members treat each other like family along with the staff. You won't find a better atmosphere anywhere. The facility is always clean. The staff is top notch and well educated in the latest form and techniques. They critique you in an educational way and don't make you feel bad if you weren't able to do it right the first time. They also take the time to explain why something works or doesn't work so that if your life depends on it, you can rely on your training. If you aren't training at Xtreme Krav Maga, then you aren't training.read more

Xtreme Krav Maga is without a doubt the best gym to learn REAL self defense. All skill levels are welcome and all skill levels feel welcomed. No egos to contend with either. No matter how shy or awkward you feel, this is the gym to attend. Steve Sulze and all of his trainers take your safety and security very seriously. Thanks Xtreme, for providing such a great place.... not to mention I have made many friends here.read more

I've worked out at the XKM gym for a little over 2 years now. It's definitely been a worth while experience. Not only have I gained knowledge in self defense and the protection of my loved ones, I also feel I've gained an additional family. The instructors are amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated to getting you home safely. I know this experience has changed my life for the better and I'm sure it will be the same for anyone who takes the leap to come to a class.read more

Being only 14, starting at nine years of age, Steve Sulze has been one of my instructors for 5 years, and there hasn’t been a class where I was bored in, he always brings excitement, flair, and a sense of seriousness to all of his classes. He’s optimistic, passionate, determined, and he’ll push you beyond your limits, furthering your potential. He’s cool and confident while teaching, and teaches us to ensure we can walk in peace. When he teaches us, he doesn’t want us thinking about the strikes or defenses, he wants to teach us the correct technique to perform it using muscle memory. Over the course of my five years at Krav, Steve has helped me discover that there’s more to it than the basics and fancy, cool looking self defenses, but there’s a purpose to every little thing that we do, and Steve has opened that window to not only me, but everyone he was taught. Without his teaching and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today, physically, mentally, or confidence wise without Steve coaching and pushing me, and being the great friend that he is.read more

I was in town and wanted to get in a krav workout (I live in DC and have been training for 4 years). Steve and the staff made me feel very welcomed and invited me to train with their beginner and intermediate class. It's a really great (big) space for classes. Everyone (staff and students) were very friendly. Highly recommend to anyone looking to learn self-defense and/or get in shape!!read more

We planned a private corporate self-defense course at this location. Steve was very easy to work with in terms of planning the event. The 3 hour seminar led by Patti was amazing. She was so professional, nice, and made the women feel empowered. I liked how you are thrown right into combative skill learning with your partners for two hours. The skills were then applied in practical exercises where you can actually recall and react from what you’ve learned. Then we had a one hour session of self-defense. I learned useful skills and feel more equipped. I would highly recommend the class.read more

I’ve been training at Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness for over 2 years, and since day 1 they have been one of the most welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable gyms I’ve ever attended. I came in with literally zero knowledge of Krav Maga and fighting and I never felt judged or uncomfortable. The instructors are patient and skilled and take the time to make the class a challenge for all skill levels. You can train as hard as you want to achieve your personal goals. Not only do I now feel more confident, but the classes are a great work out for the whole body. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn self defense or improve their overall health. There are classes for all skill levels and also classes focusing on certain activities, such as ground fighting, women’s self defense, and fitness. I guarantee you’ll never get bored.read more

Xtreme Krav Maga St. Louis – Reviews

Our Customers experience:



rebecca-rose“Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness changed my life.  A few years ago I started looking into what type of self defense was considered the best for women and came across Krav Maga.

When I searched for a training facility in my area I found Xtreme Krav Maga in Fenton.  When I looked on the website I noticed that they had a Women’s Self Defense Seminar scheduled. I signed up right away.  I was completely hooked!  But I knew that I would never be able to learn properly if I didn’t start to focus on my health and my fitness level.  It has been a long road with some detours.

In the end Krav Maga and the instructors at Xtreme Krav Maga are what kept me on the path to being in the best shape I have ever been in.  I tell everyone about Xtreme Krav Maga and I encourage anyone who thinks they can’t do it, to keep fighting.” – Rebecca Rose, Level 2


August Member of the month - Greg Mantle

“I started Krav in June because I wanted to get back into shape and needed a fun and competitive way to do it since traditional workout methods couldn’t keep my attention.

I had heard great things about Xtreme Krav Maga so I went in to try it and loved it. I’m down 35 pounds in about 6 weeks and my endurance is up.

I have started sparring classes also and my end goal is to drop 100 pounds in a year and possibly compete in an amateur MMA fight.” – Greg Mantle, Level 1


“After hearing about Xtreme Krav Maga and Fitness from some friends and doing some research on Krav Maga, I decided to come down and take the free class.

From the first time I walked in the door, everyone was kind and informative, as well as interested in helping obtain my personal goals of better overall fitness and a career in law enforcement. After taking the class, I was completely blown away at the levels of intensity and knowledge acquired in just one class.  I instantly became hooked.
One of the biggest points that has helped me along during my journey are the instructors. Every instructor has been very patient and willing to answer any questions I have. Every class presents a learning experience, even if you have already gone through a similar class.
After recently passing the milestone “Level 1 Test”, I cannot be happier with my progress. I am gaining vast amounts of information from the training, getting stronger and losing weight in the process. The most important lesson that I have learned is to get out of your comfort zone. Push yourself to go further and to never give up or quit. Xtreme Krav Maga has made me realize that it truly is mind over matter.”
-Dan Wunderlich, Level 2


“My Dad told me that there was a martial art\self defense system from Israel that I should look into.  I became very interested in learning more after doing some internet research.  Once I decided that Krav Maga was something I wanted to pursue, Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness St. Louis was my next stop.

I started at XKM with 3 goals- to lose weight, to learn to protect myself and to keep my brother at bay.  After just a few months I am making progress towards all of these goals.
At XKM I like that we can get hands on experience and get a great workout.  It is also nice to be able to hit the pads after a hard day!”
-Jacob Sherill, Level 1


“Two years ago, I saw an episode of Fight Science on the National Geographic channel about Krav Maga. I have an injured back, I have never studied martial arts before and I have always thought of myself as mainly a weapons type of guy.  At the time I thought Krav Maga looked really bad ass but I didn’t think it would work for me.  I was mostly interested in it for my daughter.

I found Xtreme Krav Maga online and my daughter started attending classes. After a few months of watching, I decided to try a class for myself.  We did gun defenses and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Now I take conditioning classes, beginner/intermediate/advanced Krav Maga and MMA classes.  My back has never felt better.  If I don’t make a class I feel like I’m missing out on something cool ”
-Nick Clubb, Level 3


“I signed up for the free class and found it to be one of the most physically challenging and informative classes I had ever attended.  I was hooked immediately, drawn to the no non-sense style of self defense and physical conditioning.  I am in the best physical condition I have ever been in my life thanks to the excellent instructors and their efforts to help us achieve our optimum levels.”

-Kent Butzin, Level 3



“In the short time I have been training my cardio has gone through the roof, I’ve lost 25 pounds overall and am still losing.  Back pain that has bothered me for years is gone. I’ve trained with some great people and made some amazing friends. Being at XKM is my favorite part of the day.”

-Kevin McCracken, Level 3

“I’ve been training with Steve and his guys for a year now and can honestly say they are the best in the business.  They are the ultimate professionals and have a great way to tailoring their instruction toward a diverse clientele that ranges from soccer moms to law enforcement and military professionals.  Steve is a certified Krav Maga law enforcement instructor which is very rare and allows him to teach techniques that directly apply to our mission.”

-Brad  – U.S. Secret Service

“Thank you to all of you for such a wonderful self defense seminar that you held. I am so stoked about joining! I am thrilled that I have some knowledge to take with me when I am in some of the not so nice scenarios that I encountered when traveling last year. Thank you for sharing that knowledge with me and know for sure you have an excited newbie!”

-Kim Pumphrey-Dunman, Seminar Attendee

“The instructors at Xtreme Krav Maga truly care about their students and have established a safe learning environment that feels like a second home to me. The camaraderie seen between the students attests to the great environment the instructors have developed.  The systems taught have given me so many more tools to use in the event of an altercation, allowing me to walk more confidently. The instructors prepare students for the real world by motivating and pushing us to excel when dealing with tough situations. In summary, Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness has created a unique, safe and fun training environment that everyone can be a part of.”

-Charles W. Gandy, Level 2

“Xtreme Krav Maga has helped me to build my strength, stamina, energy, and self confidence.  All things I don’t think I could have done on my own.  Steve and Nick are knowledgeable and thorough instructors that push you to your full potential.  I really enjoy the light and friendly atmosphere of the classes as well as the cleanliness of the facility.”

-Tom Flowers, Level 3
