We are a dedicated Krav Maga school with 20 years of Krav Maga teaching experience, and our staff includes some of the highest ranked instructors in the world.
Krav Maga is the official defensive tactics system of the Israeli Defense Force. Their soldiers are men and women aged 18 to 51, so their fighting system focuses on techniques that are:
- Based on instinctive movements, so they are easy to learn and easy to remember under stress
- Not dependent on size, strength, or special physical ability, so Krav Maga techniques can be used effectively by men and women of all ages
Krav Maga is the most practical, fastest-growing self defense system in the United States, used by hundreds of U.S. law enforcement agencies and military units, and practiced by thousands of adults across the country.
No matter what your age or physical ability, Krav Maga was designed to bring you to a high level of proficiency quickly!
