Krav Maga, (contact combat in Hebrew), is the official self defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and has been taught to hundreds of law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians in the United States and all over the world.

Krav Maga is a simple, effective self defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques and realistic training scenarios. These natural movements are learned quickly and easily remembered.

Krav Maga’s rapid responses, awareness training and tactical techniques work for people of ALL types and sizes.

Krav Maga uses realistic training scenarios. Practicing aggressive self defense responses in a safe environment. Students learn to deal with almost any violent or threatening situation through the use of hand-to-hand combatives, improvised weapons, and simply knowing when to escape danger by running away.

Krav Maga is another form of life insurance. It is something we need to know NOW to protect ourselves and our families. Violence is not going to go away, we need to be prepared for the unexpected.  Don’t let self defense be an afterthought, start your training now.  Krav Maga, it’s a matter of LIFE.
