Description

Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery

Krav Maga, which means Hand to Hand Combat in Hebrew, is a training system first developed in the Israeli Defense Forces by Imrich Lichtenfeld, Eli Avikzar and Boaz Aviram. The system was designed to create a close quarter fighter within a short period of time which will prevail, hand to hand, against an enemy with years of martial art or street fighting experience. Krav Maga is built on the principles of human physiology, psychology and reaction time.

Rather than repeatedly drilling in rigid engagement techniques, you will learn to analyze a hostile environment, and stop the opponents capabilities according to his posture, selecting the appropriate action, within split second before the engagement. You will not be taught to defend against a specific weapon or hand strike, rather to counter the opponent's intent before the attack is initiated.

Training begins with techniques to overcome fear, analysis of survival chances in a threat situation and a comprehensive study of reaction time and pressure points. This leads to rapid decision making of taking the best course of action using the tools at hand.

After learning to use the maximum of your mind, you will turn to the physical capabilities of your body, building up techniques that work under extreme exertion. Most techniques are executed using principles of gravity, so even when fear and hyperventilation takes over, you can still mount an effective defense and attack without using great muscle contraction.

In Krav Maga, simplicity is the key

----

No prior experience necessary. You will go through all the basics over 2 months: pressure points, situational awareness, danger analysis, combat technique (hand strikes, kicks, elbows, etc), defenses, and close quarters scenarios (chokes, holds, etc). After your capstone sparring round, you will receive a student certificate and be invited to pursue the rest of the system in monthly seminars and hone your skills in our Wednesday classes.

Tuition is for 8 weekly Monday classes, beginning January 8th. Individual one-off classes not available due to compounding nature of curriculum. Make-up classes may be available if you can not attend one of the classes. Ask instructor for details.

Recommended equipment: mouthguard (SISU brand preferred), cup, boxing (not MMA) gloves.
