Krav Maga KC | SELF-DEFENSE
2023

SELF-DEFENSE

Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It's also the preferred system for the U.S.Military and of Law Enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest time possible.

Our program teaches you to defend against common chokes, grabs, bear hugs, as well as weapons (such as guns, knives, and sticks). Just as important, Krav Maga teaches people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.

In addition to learning self-defense, you will condition, tone and build your body. The self-defense program includes high-intensity drills, training situations, obstacle courses and endurance conditioning all designed to get you in fighting shape. With the Krav Maga Self-Defense program, you will become physically and mentally prepared to handle any confrontation.
