Krav maga is the official fighting style of the Israeli Army, but it seems like US Armed Forces members are enjoying it too. Marc Delnicki and Mark Messare, who served in the US Army and Air National Guard, respectively, draw on decades of martial-arts experience to teach Kelevra Krav Maga’s students how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. Using modern, practical fighting techniques, their krav maga classes impart self-defense skills while also providing an intense, full-body workout. Marc and Mark also lead kids' martial-arts classes, and KFX fitness classes that use scientific research and anatomy knowledge to design workouts.

Each class has a different schedule with its own days, times, and recommended wine pairings.
