Krav Maga Moms learn to increase strength, confidence and self defense skills.

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 7th.  Just because we are deep in the middle of a pandemic does not mean that mom should not be honored on this day (and everyday!)  For all the days mom has taken care of you, for all the days your wife has taken great care of the children, here is a great chance to give it back.  There is nothing more important than her safety.  Krav Maga Illinois is offering a discounted rate for one month of reality self defense training or two private lessons for just $120.  You can purchase a coupon now, to be used anytime in the future.

Krav Maga Training is more than Self Defense.  At Krav Maga Illinois you will learn to protect yourself from chokes, and grabs, defend against weapons, and learn combatives such as kicks, punches, elbows, etc.  Along with this physical training, you will also increase your self confidence, build strength, both mentally and physically and get all the skills needed to deal with potentially life threatening situations.  This Krav Maga Training is for almost everyone, and no experience is necessary.  It is the most simplistic and practical style of self defense in the world.

Introduce mom to a new sense of strength and empowerment through Krav Maga Training.  Though we are in the middle of a difficult situation in the world right now, once we are out and about, violence will still be there.  Krav Maga Training is a way of life, violence is NOT going to go away so we must stay prepared. Give yourself and your family peace of mind.  Get them in to train!!! Give us a call at 773/775-5201 to purchase your Mother’s Day coupon. For any questions, please email me at
