Developed in the late 1940s and later adopted by the Israeli Defense Forces, krav maga condenses lessons learned on the battlefield into simultaneous offensive and defensive maneuvers. During one-hour classes, students fend off chokes, grapples, and punches often found in real-life attack situations, and mental exercises train their senses to be more aware of their surroundings. Students learn striking and grappling through sparring matches, and stress drills prepare the mind to perform under duress. The system's simple, explosive maneuvers are designed to work with each person's natural instincts, instead of their unnatural sixth sense.
Practicing martial arts for the past 20 years, Sean "The Silverback" Stoopman has earned master bodyguard instructor certification, a Brazilian jujitsu brown belt, and a first-degree black belt through Israeli Krav International. He now lends his notorious nickname and ample expertise to teaching classes at Silverback Academy with the aid of five other trainers, each with a litany of their own achievements.
The school's disciplines are split among the practical striking, locking, and stress tests of krav maga training, and the competitive submission grappling art of Brazilian jujitsu.
