Our system is built with Krav Maga as its core, but we also teach and train other martial arts to supplement and improve our Krav Maga program and to enable our students to be well-rounded martial artists. Our Core Krav Maga focuses on simple and effective techniques that can be developed into instinctive responses to an attack. Our Advanced Krav Maga curriculum takes those foundational skills and builds on them to include defense against guns, knives, sticks, multiple attackers, and other challenging scenarios. Our American Karate program provides an expanded skill set of offensive and defensive techniques that can be incorporated into a student’s Krav Maga training, and the skills developed from our Kali program in Filipino Martial Arts blend seamlessly into our Krav Maga training as well. We utilize kickboxing to develop timing, distance, reflexes, and the ability to use fighting combinations fluidly and without hesitation. In all of our martial arts programs, we maintain a strong emphasis on developing realistic skills that can actually be used for self-defense.
While all martial arts programs claim to be effective for self-defense, Krav Maga is a proven system that actually works. Originally developed for use by the Israeli military, Krav Maga has evolved as a civilian adaptation of those military fighting principles to situations that an ordinary person may encounter in daily life. The setting and application may be different, but the philosophy, mindset, and implementation remain the same.
In our program, we encourage students to get away from the nice-sounding concept of self-defense. Instead, we teach students to go on the offense to attack someone who is trying to physically harm them. This shift in thinking is important. If you stay in a defensive mindset of just responding to the attacks someone is making against you, the attacker has no reason to stop and eventually you will lose. Our students are taught to address the immediate danger of whatever attack is launched at them, but then to turn the tables and violently counterattack the person trying to harm them. We attack and attack and continue to attack until the attacker either runs away or is physically defeated. Once the threat is neutralized, we teach to escape the danger zone and call the authorities for assistance. Our training drills are designed to teach how to overcome fear and exhaustion through attacking relentlessly and with full force until the threat is over.
At Precision Krav Maga, we train our students to develop self-confidence in all aspects of life, to maintain situational awareness, to set personal boundaries and assertively enforce them, to find ways to avoid being in dangerous situations, to defuse confrontations without resorting to violence, to stand up to bullies, and to handle the fear and adrenal response that comes from being attacked. We constantly remind our students that the best way to win a fight is to never be in a fight in the first place, and that simply maintaining awareness of their surroundings may be all it takes to cause a criminal to choose a different victim. Some find Krav Maga training to be a therapeutic way to deal with stress, fear, anger, PTSD, and other lingering trauma from past experiences. It is a fantastic way to release tension and escape from mental burdens. Learning Krav Maga is a lot of fun, it provides a great workout, and it may save your life one day.
We understand that some people have physical limitations that interfere with their ability to perform certain techniques in the ideal manner. Krav Maga is a flexible and adaptive fighting system that adjusts not only for the situation, but for the person in that situation. We will work with you to adapt or adjust techniques as necessary to accommodate your physical concerns. Several of our students perform modified versions of certain movements due to physical limitations. Do not let a physical restriction keep you away from learning Krav Maga.
