Q: What makes Krav Maga different than other fighting systems?
A: Krav Maga itself is a Mixed Martial Art (MMA), literally a mix of different martial arts. Originally based on Boxing, Judo, and Wrestling, eventually it incorporated parts of Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu as well. So, in many ways the actual fighting we do is not THAT different, however, what is different is the mindset and intent. Many other fighting systems train with a competition mindset, or perhaps a mindset that focuses on the "art" aspect of the fighting. Krav practitioners don't train for a 3 round 1-on-1 match - they train for violence that happens in much scarier circumstances that take place in 15 seconds, not 15 minutes. Multiple attackers, weapons, crazy people, drugged out attackers, sexual assault, situational dangers, huge size differences, gender differences, hate-driven assault. This stuff makes fighting a much more hectic and terrifying experience, that's Krav Maga's focus, that's Evolve's focus. Fighting that is dependable to work in the most stressful event of your life.
Q: How Do I Get Started?
A: Purchase a trial by clicking >HERE<. Then, as you checkout you will select which class you would like to attend first from our list of beginner level classes. Bring a water bottle, some clothes you can move and sweat in, and come a few minutes early to sign a waiver. (PS. Trying a class with a friend is always a lot of fun!)
OR if you want to come just watch a class first, that's fine too! Just send us an email or text letting us know you're coming!
Q: Where Are You Located?
A: Our gym is located at 188 Boone Docks St, Boone, NC, 28607. This space is shared with High Country Dance Studio and Boone Docks MMA, so you will need to walk around the left side of the building, through the parking lot and to the back. You will see a door in the back of the building which is Evolve's private entrance. (Map and entrance shown below)
