Des Brown is the Founder Member of the Elite Defence Academy (EDA) in South Africa. During his military service in the 1980's, he served with 32 Battalion and was involved in several operations during the Angolan Bush War.
After completing his military service there, he served for a while as a police reservist. He has also been involved in various martial arts over several years and was introduced to Krav Maga by Jeff Miller of the IKMF. He began teaching a basic Krav Maga class in 2007 and he now runs several classes in various areas.
EDA subscribes to the principles and teaching progression outlined by the IKI in Israel, under Itay Gil and Moshe Katz. Des has ensured that EDA has a constantly growing group of Instructors who are running their own classes, as well as building relationships with other hard-core combat groups, such as FightFit Militia in Sandton and the Combat Coaching group in Kwa Zulu Natal.
His purpose is to make effective Krav Maga accessible to everyone and to be recognized by deeds rather than words. Anyone is welcome, as long as they are prepared to train hard and accept that pain is part of the growth process. “Train hard – Fight easy”
Training Facility: Des and his instructors runs classes in Germiston, Bedfordview, Benoni, Sandton, Randburg, Bryanston and Sunninghill.
