We have developed a very effective, easy to learn and retain, self-defense program. This program is solely designed to teach students how to stay safe when facing various dangerous situations. What renders Krav Maga methods unique are techniques that are based on natural instincts and body mechanics. This provides a very fast and easy learning curve for all students regardless of their size or strength. We blend these techniques into interactive and empowering programs that effectively train the body and mind to be more in control of one's safety. The confrontations we deal with in class mirror the real world — muggings, sexual assault, bar fights, shootings, etc. No prior experience is required to begin learning and brute strength and size are irrelevant. It's only natural that once you've gained physical confidence in our classes, that confidence will carry over into other areas of your life. You will develop mental resolve in handling hypothetically threatening situations, strengthen your muscles with strikes and power drills, and gain a better understanding of your body and its instincts. All of this optimizes you as a whole unit and you'll notice the benefits extending far beyond class.
To put things simply: you're fighting for your life. Even though Krav Maga is known for being a self defense system, students must also learn fundamental fighting skills; such as how to properly punch, elbow, kick, etc. It is both an offensive and defensive system. Not getting hurt is the primary goal of Krav Maga. Due to this, we place safety first in our training. Students are encouraged to display explosive aggression and are being "attacked" constantly, but the system was also designed for its practitioners to train without getting hurt. To simulate real-life threats, we often practice controlled stress drills which can entail other students and instructors pushing into you with pads, or surprise attackers trying to grab, stab or mug you at unexpected times. These drills, and many others, are designed to exhaust our bodies and disorient our senses. This allows students to practice techniques under stress. In real life, your attacker isn't going to wait for you to get into the perfect position before assaulting you, so our goal is to prepare you to fight back under unideal circumstances.
