Krav Maga Self Defense

Krav Maga Self Defense

Krav Maga is hands-on self defense intended to teach you defend yourself as quickly and efficiently as possible against real-world, modern attacks.

Our total focus is self defense.

In every class, you’ll practice striking (how to punch, kick, knee, elbow, etc) with as much power as possible, while keeping yourself safe. We’ll also cover a capstone self defense for the day.  You’ll learn defenses against attacks such as strangulation, headlocks, bearhugs, fighting from the ground, wrist grabs, arm pulls, sexual assault, multiple attackers, weapons, and many more.

What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is an Israeli self-defense system based on fast, easy-to-learn responses to common, real-world attacks. It draws on techniques from other martial arts and combat sports such as Muay Thai, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Wrestling, and Boxing and combines them with an emphasis on home defense, sexual assault prevention, multiple attackers, attacks with modern weapons, and surprise attacks.

What should I expect in my first Krav Maga class?

Not exclusively for athletes and fighters, Krav Maga is meant for everyone of every size, age, and experience level to walk with strength and confidence out in the world.

A standard, one-hour Krav Maga class at Krav Maga ATX will start off with a short warm-up, usually involving simple calisthenics, partner work, and movement.

Once everyone is warm and ready to train, you’ll practice striking to a pad, learning to use punches, kicks, elbows, and knees to damage an attacker.

As class continues, you’ll be led through hands-on scenarios, learning to defend against attacks such as chokes, headlocks, and incoming strikes so that you can fight back, neutralize the threat, or escape.

Expect a good workout and a lot of scenario and stress-based drills, all done in a safe and welcoming environment for any level of fitness and martial arts experience.

How should I dress? Do I need to bring anything with me to class?

Dress in workout clothes that you feel comfortable moving and sweating in! No shoes allowed on the mats.

Bring a bottle of water.

Long term, we recommend a mouth guard and groin protector for training, but neither are essential for your first class.
