What We Teach


As a self-defense system, Krav Maga (“close combat” in Hebrew) is well-known for its brutal counter-attacks, training for multiple attackers, and the ability to end fights quickly. Unlike many traditional martial arts, Krav Maga focuses on efficiency and practical applications over acrobatic kicks or convoluted grappling.


Fitness is a key component of being able to defend yourself and taking care of your body as a whole. With personalized assessment and training, your classes will be tailored to your current fitness level and will challenge you and push you to the best shape of your life. This training is a full body workout that will make you stronger, leaner, and faster.



The best way to win a fight is to avoid it in the first place. Alongside the rest of your training, classes will educate you in situational awareness, fighting tactics, following your instincts, how to identify and avoid dangerous situations, and how to de-escalate conflicts effectively before they become violent.
