What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga, (Hebrew for "hand-to-hand combat." Krav meaning "combat" and Maga meaning "contact"or "touch"), is the official self defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and has been taught to hundreds of law enforcement agencies, military, and thousands of civilians in the around the world. Krav Maga is a simple, effective self defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression that can all be learned in a short amount of time.

This street oriented self defense program is favored by law enforcement agencies across the United States. While experienced fighters and law enforcement officers have consistently praised its highly practical applications, the System also appeals to beginners because of its simple, no-nonsense approach to personal safety. In fact, Krav Maga is the ideal self defense system for men, women, and children of all ages and physical abilities. The techniques that have been extensively taught to police and military, techniques they have used to save their own lives, are the same skills we’ll teach you.

Our instructional staff are all certified and include experts and internationally recognized, award winning military and police force trainers.
