SELF-DEFENSE (KRAV MAGA)

We believe that effective self defense should be an integral part of all martial arts training. We integrate a comprehensive self defense curriculum into our Karate and Muay Thai classes.

If you are looking for a quick way to learn to keep yourself safe without learning a traditional martial art, then our quarterly self defense seminar might be the right option. Open to both women and men, we try to teach you useful self-defense strategies and techniques. We try to keep this very serious topic real but also a little light hearted.

We also offer private training for individual, groups and businesses.

KRAV MAGA

Krav Maga ("contact-combat") is a self-defense system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, boxing and wrestling, along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient and counter-attacks. It was derived from street-fighting skills developed by Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler as a means of defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in the mid-to-late 1930s. In the late 1940s, following his migration to Israel, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF, who went on to develop the system that became known as Krav Maga. It has since been refined for civilian, police and military applications.
