Krav Maga focuses on simple and effective techniques that work under the stress of real combat. We take a flexible approach that takes into account differences in size and strength, as well as any physical limitations you may have.
We provide realistic training on how weapons may be used against you and how you can defend yourself from an armed attack. Guns, knives, sticks, or objects that can be utilized as improvised weapons are covered in our program.
An important component of self defense is having the physical fitness to fight back against an attacker. We start wherever you are and build your fitness from there. It is hard to fight when you are out of breath, so we work to build up your conditioning and endurance.
Simple, instinctive, aggressive, effective
Our Krav Maga Fundamentals classes will train you in simple techniques that you can use to defend yourself from harm. At least in the early stages of your training, if it isn’t simple then it isn’t going to work against a real attack. While we do expand your skill set to more difficult techniques when you move into the Advanced Krav Maga program, your foundation has to be based on simple principles of defense that you can apply across a wide range of situations. We provide you with a core skill set that you can use against multiple attacks before moving your training to a more advanced level.
One of the reasons Krav Maga is so effective is that it bases its defensive techniques on instinctive responses to an attack. We take your natural reflexes and build upon them to give you a fighting skill set you can learn quickly. Your brain already has a built-in programming that we can build upon to teach you how to protect yourself.
In Krav Maga, we teach our students to take their fear and turn it into anger and aggression. We encourage students to get away from being in a defensive mindset, and instead learn how to go on the offense when someone is trying to physically harm them. If you stay in a defensive mindset of just responding to attacks, the attacker has no reason to stop and eventually you will lose. Our students are taught to address the immediate danger from the attack, but to also turn the tables and violently counterattack the person trying to harm them. While it is best to avoid fighting and to deescalate conflict whenever possible, if you are forced to fight then you should fight to win. Our students do drills in every class that help them develop the ability to flip the switch and turn on the aggression when they need it.
In Krav Maga, we use whatever works. We are not hung up on the origins of a technique, our only concern is whether it will get the job done. At our school, we test every technique we teach to see if it really works against resistance and under stress. The most effective techniques are usually the ones based on the basic principles of Krav Maga, where we rely on instinctive responses and a standard framework of skills that can be applied in a wide variety of situations. We also realize that not every person can do every technique, whether due to size or disability or other physical limitation, so we are always happy to find ways to modify a technique to make it work for each individual. We don’t care whether the technique looks pretty, we just want it to get the job done.
