Israeli Self Defense
Krav Maga (Hebrew for “contact combat”) is the official self defense and fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It has been recognized as the most efficient self-defense system for real-life situations, emphasizing practical defenses against real attacks. Since 1964, Krav Maga has been taught to hundreds of U.S. law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians.
Krav Maga is a simple, effective self defense system emphasizing instinctive movements, practical techniques and realistic training scenarios. Plus, because it’s based on a person’s natural reactions, it is easy to learn. You can become proficient in months rather than years. The Krav Maga system incorporates fitness, self-defense and fighting like no other system.
Krav Maga’s top-rated Fitness classes compliment training by toning muscle and dramatically improving strength and stamina. Krav Maga’s self defense classes are a total-body workout that combines kicking, punching, street fighting, ground fighting, and defenses against weapons, all while getting students into prime physical shape. The total-body workout benefits of the Krav Maga self defense and fitness system have been featured in publications such as Shape, Men’s Fitness, USA Today, US, and SELF, as well as television from CNN and Extra to The Today Show.
How is Krav Maga Different from other Martial Arts?
Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals. No nonsense . Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. You’ll learn to defend against common chokes and grabs from all angles, punches and kicks, and weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, Krav Maga will teach you to function under the stress, shock, and adrenaline rush of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in today’s streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self-defense will make you safer and more secure. And believe it or not, you’ll have so much fun working out, you won’t be able to wait for your next class!
