Krav maga dispenses with the elaborate choreography and hierarchy of belts that mark other martial arts in favor of on-the-ground techniques designed for realistic self-defense situations. All the instructors at International Krav Maga New York have been certified by Gabi Noah at the World Krav Maga Center in Israel, where the system was developed for the use of the Israeli Defense Forces. From the first day of class, students take away tactics to defend themselves from assailants and aggressive billboards for male body spray. In adaptable hand-to-hand combat exercises, men, women, kids, and individuals of varying abilities learn techniques to slip out of hand grabs, bear hugs, take-downs, and other threats in drills and scenarios that also improve strength and flexibility.
In addition to their martial arts sessions, the gym also hosts exclusive fitness classes developed by expert trainer Angie Lee. A trainer for Equinox Fitness Clubs and Reebok Sports Club, Angie first earned acclaim for signature classes including Strengthworks, Athleticworks, and Pilatesworks. Now, she continues to hone her expertise with classes that blend traditional strength and cardio work with martial arts fundamentals. Designed exclusively for International Krav Maga New York, Fightworks classes help students unleash their inner fighter with cardio work drawn from kickboxing's punishing strikes. FightworksS&C combines familiar kettlebell, rope, and free weight exercises with authentic combat conditioning drills derived from different martial arts disciplines from around the world.
