Israeli Krav Maga is designed to prepare civilians to defend against any type of street confrontation. Awareness training is paramount with de-escalation & avoidance tactics heavily emphasized. Designed to teach students to defend against both unarmed and armed assailants wielding any type of weapon, including edged, impact or a firearm. Multiple opponent strategies and tactics are also emphasized.
Training focuses on real-life, street-proven self-defense techniques, while integrating extensive fitness conditioning to further hone one’s skill sets. Our goal is to teach students to be proficient in self-defense in the shortest time possible, while providing strong technique retention and dynamic training scenarios.
Open training classes are available for men, women and teens (age 13 and up). Law Enforcement & Military Personnel are welcome also.
The Juniors program effectively teaches children, ages 7-12, self-defense and anti-bullying techniques. The curriculum is designed to help motivate children through exercise, beginner conditioning drills, and personal safety education (i.e. verbal de-escalation training). The objective of the class is to build the child’s discipline and self-esteem. Introducing children to the dedication, discipline, and motivation required to be successful martial artists will have a direct and positive impact on any other future endeavors. Students will build a strong foundation in Krav Maga as they are introduced to basic blocks, the proper use of measured force counter-attacks, hold escapes, groundwork, street safety tips, anti-bullying tactics and awareness strategies.
Students will also be introduced to practical and effective fitness drills and general health and well-being tips. We believe that having a strong foundation of skill sets as a child leads to empowerment and confidence in any endeavor the child wishes to pursue.
Our specialized Women’s Self-Defense seminar has been designed to prepare women both physically and mentally to react and defend in life-threatening situations. The seminar covers a select few topics drawn from the open class curriculum across wide variety of scenarios both inside and outside (vehicles, dark parking lot, etc.) of our training facility. Training will introduce you to the tools needed to fend off a would-be attacker and allow you to feel safe, secure and empowered in your everyday life.
During this seminar we cover techniques such as releases from grabs, chokes and bear hugs, striking defenses, weapon disarming and ground survival techniques. Emphasis is placed on preparation to defend under stress – effectively eliminating the “shutting down and freezing” reaction.
Women of all ages, sizes and physical abilities are invited to participate.
This program is offered on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 1:00pm to 2:30pm with a $35 enrollment fee.*
*Please note: You must be at least 13 years of age to participate. When enrolling, please enter your date of birth.
Jiu jitsu training is more rigorous than many other martial arts, owing to the intensely physical nature of grappling. A typical session includes cardiovascular training, stretching, breathing work and a resistance workout.
Jiu jitsu students throw, sweep and trip each other dozens of times during every class. To make it through training without injury, beginning students learn how to fall down without getting hurt.
Battlefield techniques form the basis of all jiu-jitsu training. What you learn in this martial art is applicable if you are ever attacked. Skilled jiu-jitsu practitioners are capable of defending themselves — and those they love — from a dangerous assailant.
An impatient jiu-jitsu player is an unsuccessful jiu-jitsu player. This is because timing and rhythm are vital to the physics behind jiu-jitsu technique. Executing a lock or throw at the right moment feels effortless. Practicing in this context builds patience and self-discipline and helps reduce stress.
A typical jiu-jitsu session includes exercising to near exhaustion, becoming frustrated with complex techniques and accumulating a moderate collection of dings and bruises. Despite this — or perhaps because of it – jiu-jitsu is fun.
Yoga’s many poses are what allows its practitioners to be so flexible, stretching muscles and making movements more fluid. Flexibility not only aids martial arts students in submissions and moves, like high kicks but also reduces the risk of injury.
Take one look at a yoga pose like the Natarajasana, or Lord of the Dance, and it’s clear that yoga can help with balance. Balance is helpful in all aspects of the martial arts, especially in footwork and stances.
Holding a yoga pose stresses the core muscles, which translates to stronger kicks and punches, and an overall increase in power for everything else.
Whether it’s due to holding the demanding poses, better focus, or because breathing and mindfulness exercises lead to better oxygen circulation, yoga can give a gigantic boost to endurance, both physical and mental.
Practicing yoga can improve control over muscles, which leads to a reduced occurrence of injuries. Performing yoga after a martial arts class may also relax muscles and help with healing!
