Increased Self-Defense Skills
Training for martial arts can be daunting, and requires dedication and practice to succeed. Successful training requires discipline and focus; working out alongside people with the same goals helps immensely with building self-confidence.
Krav Maga teaches its students to trust their instincts and improvise during real-life combat situations, distinguishing it from traditional martial arts. When striking an attacker, instructors in Krav Maga typically target sensitive areas such as the groin, throat and eyes in order to quickly inflict pain that will hamper his/her ability to function normally.

Our Chief Instructor draws upon his extensive knowledge in Krav Maga as well as other martial arts disciplines to provide cutting-edge disarming techniques to their students.
Imi Lichtenfeld created Krav Maga when asked by the Israeli Defense Forces to train hand-to-hand combat. Realizing he needed an approach that could provide effective training for real world fighting rather than competition fighting, Imi developed simple techniques and practical skills which ultimately became Krav Maga.
A Sense of Community
At a krav maga school, you’ll become part of an intimate community of students all working hard towards improving their own self-defense and physical fitness. Being around others who share this goal makes training more enjoyable while providing additional motivation – which may explain why such classes have such widespread appeal among men, women and children of all ages.
Krav Maga is designed for realistic situations and strives to quickly neutralize attackers. The techniques are straightforward and effective against people of all sizes or ages. Krav maga training emphasizes taking an attacker by surprise, striking at weak spots such as eyes, throats, groins, knees torso and arms – all areas which could potentially pose potential threats in close combat situations.
Imi Lichtenfeld created Krav Maga because the Haganah needed quickly train soldiers in hand-to-hand combat. He sought an easy system that would build fighting spirit among new recruits quickly. Instead of following traditional martial arts’ ceremonial practices, Imi focused instead on principles which would enable his troops to fight under less than ideal conditions like dizziness, protecting someone else or facing armed opponents.
Its impact was immediate: law enforcement and military units adopted this fast-paced, no-nonsense form of combat instruction worldwide, teaching lawful self-defence around the globe and favoring it as part of their training regimens. While not technically considered sport martial art, many MMA fighters have adopted elements from this system to enhance their own combat effectiveness.
By taking Krav Maga classes, you’ll gain the skills needed to react to danger and fight back effectively – an exercise which will build both confidence and self-esteem while giving a sense of safety for both children and adults alike.
Krav maga is an effective self-defense system that’s accessible for everyone to learn quickly and effortlessly. Its aim is to reduce reaction time while striking at weak points on an opponent and it features common moves which will be recognized by most.
Imi Lichtenfeld initially devised it in order to protect Israel against various threats, as the chief instructor for its Defense Forces. He needed an easy system that was quick to learn and memorized even under extreme stress – in real-life scenarios like bar fights or sexual assault attempts, for instance.
Krav maga has quickly become one of the world’s most widely practiced forms of physical training, taught in schools and training centers worldwide as well as Hollywood (where actors and stunt professionals use it for character training). Krav maga offers an intense yet rewarding form of physical exercise which teaches self-protection techniques, builds confidence, strengthens bodies, increases fitness levels, relieves stress levels, and even promotes mental well-being!
