ACTIVELY ENJOY SELF-DEFENSE

A typical Krav Maga class will last between one hour and one hour and thirty minutes and will incorporate a vigorous warm up followed by the teaching of one or two techniques, and then stress drilling of the techniques. It’s one thing to defend against an attack, but a completely different situation when doing so under low light conditions, exhaustion, impaired vision, or against multiple attackers.

Certifications have been completed under internationally-recognized Krav Maga expert John Whitman, President and Chief of Krav Maga Alliance and co-author of Complete Krav Maga: The Ultimate Guide to Over 230 Self-Defense and CombativeTechniques
