Developed by Israeli Defense Forces as a combat method for soldiers, krav maga’s simple self-defense techniques now protect both militia and everyday men met with everyday dangers. Krav Maga L.A. teaches a graduated curriculum of beginning to advanced classes as part of its weekly schedule. After mastering the basic form of standup sparring, students invest in ground-work basics, which help them to escape from floor-based brawls by kipping up, pinning an opponent, or disappearing in a puff of smoke. Krav Maga L.A. cross-trains fighters with KM Cardio and jump-rope training sessions to torch fat and KM Power to colonize flatten façades with lean muscle. Students can further enrich their self-defense prowess by attending one of the studio’s classes held in a real-world location, testing moves to effectively fend off parking-lot assailants, bar hooligans, or summons servers.
Krav Maga L.A.
Perhaps the only thing as impressive as Roy Elghanayan’s reign as a two-time Israeli Krav Maga National Champion is the students with whom he’s shared his incredible skill. He first was hand-chosen to devise the Israeli Special Forces’ training program. In 2011, the Argentinean Marines enlisted him to teach the sport to their soldiers. He even trained actress Jessica Chastain for her role in the movie The Debt. Today, he continues to travel the world to teach Krav Maga and works out of his studio, Krav Maga L.A.
Krav maga is a more rigorous form of self-defense developed by the Israeli military when they realized that ancient martial arts would translate to modern battlefields. Roy and his staff helm classes for both adults and children as part of a six-day schedule that divides students by their skill level. Beginners’ classes corral 18 participants or less so that instructors can easily oversee technique while still having enough bodies to build a human pyramid if morale is low. With continued practice, the instructors at Krav Maga L.A. hope to imbue their students with the physical and mental skill to escape threatening situations should they ever arise.
