Krav Maga Instructor

(083) 234 8393

Pauline has for many years, participated in various sporting codes as a coach and at provincial and national level as player.


She first became aware of the Elite Defence Academy system when her husband was looking for a defence system which would benefit their daughter as she embarked on her university education.


As a family, they began training with Alex Berndl and quickly progressed through the belts. With each session, the desire to empower others, especially women of all ages, grew with passion and excitement.

I started assisting in class and knew this was how I could make the desire a reality.

Pauline is a qualified Level 1 Elite Defence Academy Krav Maga instructor and assists Esmond Jacobs at Pinelands and Rondebosch.
