Private lessons are a great way to build your confidence, before joining a group class, or expedite
“A great place to learn self-defense and fighting techniques! The people treat you like family (activities outside of classes) and everyone is encouraging (no egos, everyone is here to learn and get better). Omar and Margaret (and all the students) have really created a place that will bring the best out of you!!“
“They do a great job accommodating all experience levels, working you hard, and celebrating progress no matter your starting point. The owners, Omar and Margaret, make you feel important as soon as you walk in and have created such a positive and encouraging environment.“
Your First Class is on Us
Where Does Krav Maga Come From?
Krav Maga was designed for the Israeli special forces. It combines the most effective techniques from Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, Judo, and others, while cutting out all the fluff.
To make sure we’re being true to the system, all of our instructors are certified by Krav Maga Worldwide.
how intense are the classes?
Krav Maga is full of explosive and aggressive movements. We do our best to train at full-power to build that into our muscle memory. That being said, most everything we do can be modified or skipped, depending on injuries, fitness, or comfort levels.
This isn’t bootcamp and we aren’t going to yell at you if you need a break. Self defense is for everyone!
What do i wear to class?
We’re pretty informal! Wear whatever you’re comfortable working out and (in non-Covid times) grappling with a partner in.
Please note that shoes and socks are not recommended on the mats.
Does Krav Maga Have a Belt System?
Yes! You won’t see us actually wearing the belts (Krav Maga isn’t that formal), but there is a belt system that corresponds to a set curriculum.
Students start out as a white belt, regardless of experience in other styles of martial arts, and will be invited to test for their next level as their skills progress. Ask us for more details!
how old do you have to be to join a class?
Right now, we’re only providing adult classes.
That being said, students as young as 12 are welcome to join an adult class with a parent or guardian’s permission.
Do i need previous experience to participate?
Zero experience required!
People with a background in martial arts might pick things up a little more quickly, but because Krav Maga is so different, they still have a lot to learn. Our Level 1 classes are designed for beginners.
