The self-defense system of krav maga is most closely associated with the Israeli Defense Forces, which has taught the efficient and easy-to-learn combat technique to its members since the 1940s. The system is also popular among civilians, who in the Bay Area can learn beginner through professional level defensive moves from instructors led by veteran Master Shlomi Katz, who was head of krav maga training for the counter terror school of the IDF. In addition to learning krav maga, students can opt for training in other martial arts—MMA for adults and karate for kids—as well as intense fitness classes that combine cross-training, MMA conditioning, weight training, TRX resistance, and more.

Q&A with Rachell, Fitness Instructor

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We get to know each student personally; they are not just dollar signs. Each client becomes part of the IMC community, where they are surrounded by an outstanding support group of staff members and other students. Also, our instructors live healthy lifestyles; they practice what they preach.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Rewarding, challenging, and fun?but most of all, inspirational.
