Krav Maga is primarily functional self-defense, however its side benefits are a great cardiovascular workout, toned functional muscles and personal empowerment.
The class is not designed for these benefits; they are by-products of a real fighting system. To survive in battle you must be able to fight while fatigued, to push yourself to your limits and beyond, and that is exactly what happens in a Krav Maga class.
Simply put—the class is intense exercise.
The result? A lean mean fighting machine, weight loss, improved cardiovascular ability and the confidence to know you can fight and not give up.
Unlike aerobic classes the moves are not choreographed to music. We simply have powerful drills which push every aspect of your body; real fighting moves that demand a lot of energy. This is a full body workout. You develop strength and aerobic ability at the same time, which is exactly what you need in a real life situation.
Krav Maga was designed for soldiers who had a short time to learn the techniques; they are simple and based on natural body moves. The result: The system is easy not only for soldiers but also for anybody who wants to learn and does not have the years of desire to learn a complex system.
We have learned that in a real life situation you need explosive power and aggressiveness. In the studio these translate into burning a lot of calories fast.
Krav Maga is also fun to learn and a great way to let off steam. Just ask our students! After only an hour of blasting a pad and learning effective defenses, you’ll come out feeling rejuvenated and happy.
One of the best known aspects of Krav Maga is it’s ability to develop that “Fight Back” attitude. Students develop confidence, self-esteem, and the ability to function in stressful situations.
“It’s better to avoid than run; better to run than to de-escalate; better to de-escalate than fight; better to fight than die.” -Krav Maga Wisdom-
