Q: What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is the self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It was designed for the IDF over 60 years ago an has been battle tested ever since. It is used by police and military around the world. It is the very best self-defense system ever created and is also a great workout.

Q: Do you have self-defense classes for women?

Our classes are integrated. Although women do have some special needs, we teach them the same techniques as men. Some Krav Maga techniques address attacks that women are more prone to suffering, such as being choked. It is important for women to train together with men, because that is who they will be facing if they are ever attacked.

Q: Will your classes help me tone up?

Absolutely! The combination of cardio, resistance training and proper diet (which we will help you with!) will help you to tone up very quickly.

Q: Will I have to fight or compete in tournaments?

No student at our school is ever forced to fight or compete, that’s totally up to the student.

Q: How many classes per week should I attend?

We have classes 6 days a week so the amount of classes you take is based on your own personal schedule. Most of our members train 2-3 times per week and see great results.

Q: Do I need to ‘get in shape’ before I start you classes?

A common misunderstanding is that you need to be ‘in shape’ before starting any martial arts training. This is completely false. Our classes are designed to allow our members to train ‘at their own pace’ while at the same time, giving the advanced student the opportunity to challenge themselves.
