We teach realistic Israeli Krav Maga Self-Defense in private and group lessons to adults and teens. We specialize in individuals with little to no experience. This is not a fitness class as some Krav Maga classes have become.
Krav Maga is the Israeli self-defense system originally used by the Israeli Defense Forces. It is now widely taught to law enforcement and civilians alike, due to its inherent instinctive responses that are both effective and easy to learn. Krav Maga was developed as a realistic street defense, designed to be learned by practically anyone, regardless of physical conditioning. It was not designed to be utilized in a competitive context; therefore there are no rules or uniforms.
The student will learn the easiest skills to defend themselves under all circumstances that will work in stressful situations. The curriculum is relatively brief and only the principles that have proven to work in real-life scenarios are taught. The curriculum covers combatives such as hand and elbow strikes, knee and leg kicks; defense against chokes, headlocks, as well as some elementary ground escape concepts. In addition, weapon disarms are included.
