Krav Maga is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Israeli Anti-terrorist Units, and various branches of the Israeli Security Forces. Krav Maga has been adopted by and taught to many federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, including the F.B.I., U.S. Marshal Service, D.E.A., U.S. Secret Service, and numerous Police Departments. Now the world's most effective fighting system is being offered to civilians.

Be advised, Krav Maga is not a traditional “martial art”, Krav Maga is one of the most effective self-defense systems practiced in the world today. No katas. No rituals. No nonsense! It's combat for a modern world - a system that's heavy on the “martial” and light on the “art”.

Krav Maga’s simple, no-nonsense and realistic approach to personal safety makes it an ideal self-defense solution for men, women and children of all ages and physical abilities. Based on instinctive movements that are quickly learned and easily remembered, Krav Maga is a simple, effective system that emphasizes rapid responses, practical techniques that work for all types and sizes, and realistic training scenarios. Its' powerful, easy to learn techniques can empower you, making you more confident, and giving you the tools to protect yourself and your family.

This reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common strikes, chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. These intense classes train you for real-life situations with Real-World techniques that can be quickly learned and mastered by anyone, regardless of age, size or previous training. There's nothing fancy here, just simple and practical punches, kicks and self-defense methods based on your body's instinctive reactions. Plus, because it's based on a person's natural reactions, it is easy to learn. You can become proficient in months rather than years. Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. No defense tactics program in the world is more battle tested than Krav Maga. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga's practical approach to self defense will make you and your family safer and more secure.

Krav Maga incorporates fitness, self-defense and fighting like no other system. Krav Maga's self-defense classes are a total-body workout that combines kicking, punching, stand up fighting, ground fighting, and defenses against weapons, getting students into prime physical shape, toning muscle and dramatically improving strength and stamina. The total-body workout benefits of the Krav Maga self-defense and fitness system have been featured in publications such as Shape, Men's Fitness, USA Today, US, and SELF, as well as television from CNN and Extra to The Today Show.

We Pride ourselves on having the best reality based training that simulates REAL LIFE CONFRONTATIONS. We don't incorporate any training methods unless they are effective and practical to use in the street.
