Why Krav Combat Academy?
You'll have fun mastering easy-to-learn techniques.
Krav Maga (literally "Contact Combat) is widely regarded as the best self-defense system in the world because of its efficient, no-nonsense tactics, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. That means anyone can learn this stuff, no matter your age, fitness level, or amount of experience.
You'll learn reality-based skills that work on the street.
Krav Maga is different from typical karate and martial arts classes, which tend to focus more on tournaments and sportsmanship. In real life, the person who wants to do you harm is NOT going to be a good sport. You'll learn techniques that will actually work if you're ever faced with the need to defend yourself from violence.
You'll gain strength that's not just physical.
The physical aspect of self-defense is a small part of a much larger equation that includes mental and emotional preparation, and understanding how to prevent violence before it starts. You'll come away feeling confident and empowered, with a new understanding of your inner power and strength.
