Train to be Your Own Personal Protection Specialist.
Combat “Krav Maga” or “contact combat”, is the Israeli tactical combative system derived and developed from the street-fighting skills of Slovakian-Israeli martial artist, Imi Lichtenfeld.
This discipline consists of a mixture of techniques sourced from boxing, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, and grappling. It trains for realistic fighting scenarios alongside defenses against physical attack such as knife, gun, blunt objects, head locks, chokes, and ground encounters.
Its philosophy emphasizes threat neutralization as well as simultaneously aggressive, defensive and offensive maneuvers. Known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks, Krav Maga arms you with the adaptability needed to survive in the most formidable circumstances.
The best way to find out if Combat Krav Maga is right for you is to see it in action, which is why we are inviting you to join us for a free 2-day trial (group sessions). You will be jumping into our regular Combat Krav Maga classes designed for all student levels.
