With that knowledge, where do you begin? How do you effectively and confidently learn to defend yourself, and practically speaking, how do you fit this into your already jam packed schedule?
Our Women’s Only Krav Maga program is just that. Our techniques are easy to understand and practice, you don’t have to wear a uniform, you will be working with other women who have the same goals as you, and its a one hour class held several times a week so you can fit it into your schedule.
Tues & Thurs: 6:30pm-7:00pm
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is is a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces that derived from a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, wrestling, aikido, judo and karate, along with realistic fight training.
It is simple and it is powerful.
What is class like?
We spend an hour together working through a certain theme each week (ex. Gun defense, choke defense, punching and kicking) and your instructor will demonstrate and walk you through how to do each technique. We try to create a friendly and comfortable environment to grow and learn.
What do I wear?
We have no uniforms, so wear athletic pants and a comfy t shirt. We do not wear shoes on the mats, so if you are uncomfortable being barefooted (don’t worry we clean the mats daily), you can wear socks.
I am not in shape, will this be too hard for me?
No! We have students of all physical abilities. Will it be challenging at times? Yes. But that is healthy and good for all of us. No one will be staring at you or watching if you have to modify moves, we are on your team and rooting for you to grow and improve with the rest of us!
Can I try it first before I sign up?
YES. We offer two free trial classes for you to “try before you buy.” We hope you will be hooked after just one, but we love for people to come and see what we are all about!
