Krav Maga may be a battle-tested art developed for the Israeli Defense Force, but its practical self-defense tactics benefit soldier and civilian alike. This broad appeal is reflected in the teaching staff at the International Krav Maga Federation?certified Krav Maga Institute NYC, which includes an amateur-boxing champion, an active US Marine, and a PhD in genetics. As profiled in the New York Times, they introduce the martial art in beginner-friendly classes, demonstrating how it takes advantage of an individual's natural instincts to create devastating counterattacks meant to incapacitate an opponent as quickly as possible. Techniques include many responses to modern attacks, such as assaults involving guns, knives, or Tumblr pages filled with really gross pictures. In addition to normal classes, instructors also host special workshops that supplement their curriculum.
Recognizing that each client has his or her own abilities, interests, and goals, the team at Work Train Fight takes a highly personalized approach to fitness. They match the specialized skill sets of their nationally certified personal trainers with individuals' desired outcomes and work closely with groups during boot-camp classes?all within a sleek, modern gym with a variety of equipment. So whether exercisers want to lose weight, build muscle strength, or learn to harmonize with the boxing-ring bell, the staff can provide expert guidance and support.
