WHAT IS KRAV MAGA?
Krav Maga is a principles-based system of self-defense that leverages the body’s instinctive response to attacks while delivering a simultaneous or near-simultaneous counter-attack as efficiently and effectively as possible. The fact that Krav Maga bases each technique on the body’s natural instinctive responses makes it easy to learn and recall under stress, a critical element when it comes to effectively dealing with a sudden violent encounter.
Krav Maga roughly translates as “contact combat” in Hebrew and is the hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Force. Krav Maga blends the most practical aspects of various fighting styles such as western boxing, wrestling, Judo, Jui Jitsu and Muay Thai. As an open self-defense system rather than traditional martial arts, Krav Maga evolves to address the ever-changing world of modern violence rather than holding to traditions or techniques that may no longer be relevant for the challenges of the day.
Our students learn how to protect themselves and their loved ones against violence, or as they like to say – “to kick ass and get in the best shape of my life!” They learn to be confident, not-to-be-messed-with individuals. They have fun and meet new friends, learning Krav Maga while working out in a cooperative, safe, often intense and motivating environment. We welcome you to join us today!
WHY TRAIN KRAV MAGA?
Krav Maga was developed to prepare regular people, all shapes and sizes, to deal with sudden violent attacks effectively. Krav Maga techniques are simple to perform because they are designed to work powerfully with your body’s instinctive reactions, making Krav Maga easier to master, even for people without any previous martial arts training. Krav Maga improves both your physical fitness and mental toughness providing you with the peace of mind that comes from increased capability and confidence.
