M. Pavil

I’ve trained my body a lot over the years, including BJJ. The reason i love Krav Chicago, is beacuse of the intensity, the low-risk of injury, the explosiveness, the results I’ve experienced over a short period of time, the instructors, and the clean facility. Come check out a class!

I can definitely say joining this amazing Krav Maga family was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The instructors are so patient and knowledgeable . I always leave class with new lifesaving tools. Oh! And the body transformation! Cant believe 6 months have passed since joining and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Love it.
