Krav Maga at KMLI’s internationally certified instructors, including the Black Belt chief instructor, stand well-versed in Krav Maga, the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces to arm fighters with explosive counter-attacks and the decisiveness to act in diverse real-life situations by honing the body’s natural instincts. Developing core muscles and balance while also focusing on weight training, classes prime personages for an array of attacks, including those from an armed attacker, or a group of assailants. The defensive tactics taught in each session scale to fighters of all ages, genders, athletic abilities, and sizes, and the graduated class system promotes students once they fully grasp increasingly difficult techniques.
With continued Krav Maga practice, martial artists often note muted stress levels and a boost in self-confidence, physical fitness, and the amount a punching bag winces when they walk by. Krav Maga at KMLI’s six-day schedule corrals classes by skill level, convening in the evening during the week and in the morning on weekends.
KMLI's Blitz Krav Maga
To earn a black belt in Krav Maga—the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces, or IDF—Dr. Michael Blitz studied under the style's foremost experts, including Grandmaster Haim Zut and U.S. Chief Instructor Darren Levine. After more than 16 years of practice and 500 hours of instructor training, he was eager and willing to pass on the techniques to others. He has trained military security personnel in the U.S. and New Zealand as well U.S. Air Marshals, police officers, and civilians and taught New York City corrections officers at multiple correctional facilities. Under his supervision, only nationally and internationally certified instructors helm Krav Maga classes at KMLI (Kombat Masters of Long Island).
Dr. Blitz's impressive resumé underscores the real-life relevancy of his class curriculum. Grouped by skill level, the Krav Maga lessons condition physiques as they impart self-defense strategies, emphasizing explosive and decisive maneuvers. The techniques are meant to guard against single, multiple, armed, and unarmed assailants, a goal that rallies Blitz and his team to raise the empowering cry, "Refuse to be a victim." Some of these techniques have been displayed when KMLI's Blitz Krav Maga was featured on News 12 Long Island.
