The instructors at Raleigh Krav Maga pride themselves on teaching students how to defend themselves while helping them lead healthy lifestyles. Their programs are all rooted in the Israeli self-defense system of Krav Maga. This combat style was designed to help students immobilize armed and unarmed attackers by moving swiftly from a passive state to an aggressive state, much like a Tasmanian devil rudely awakened from a dream of peacefully eating carrion. The instructors teach students to disarm assailants and break out of chokes, headlocks, and grabs, while responding with a fury of punches, elbows, and kicks. To whip their students into fighting condition, instructors train them with drills using heavy bags, focus mitts, and target pads, and promote proper conditioning with fitness classes. They also use the principles of Krav Maga to help women defend themselves against sexual assaults. In their self-defense classes, the instructors cover tactics against chokes, grabs, bear hugs, and weapons assaults.
