What You'll Get
Modern self-defense began when muggers caught on to their victims' cunning offers to appraise the value of their crowbars. Fend off attackers even without a disarming personality with today's Groupon to Krav Fit. Choose between the following options:
• For $34, you get one month of kids' self-defense classes (a $69.99 value).
• For $50, you get one month of adults' self-defense or fitness classes (a $119.99 value).
Krav Fit founder Devin Shirley and his team of certified instructors empower students with self-defense and fitness classes inspired by Krav Maga, the self-defense system famously developed by the Israeli military. In the Krav Kids program, students age 5–12 bolster their confidence while learning discipline, respect, and the basic principles of Krav Maga. In the course of one month, youngsters can track their progress through the custom-designed curriculum, conquering personal goals of getting fit, learning how to defend themselves, and putting more power behind their spitball launches.
Adults opting for self-defense classes will occupy the facility’s 5,200 square feet of muscle-magnifying space as teachers demonstrate how to neutralize reality-based threats using prop knives, baseball bats, clubs, and fake guns. The studio sometimes dims the lights or blares music to simulate potentially disorienting circumstances and to give attractive neighbors the impression that it’s always partying. Students get in the mood for attack repellence with a warm-up of stretching, plyometrics, and shadowboxing.
During the month-long membership, adult customers can also shape their soul carriages with the Krav Fit program, which uses Krav Maga tactics for an intense cardio and conditioning workout. Anaerobic weight training builds strength, while punching and kicking stimulates heart rates and forces invisible spirits to watch their step. Strength-boosting students should wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and actual thinking caps. Classes are held mornings and evenings, six days a week (see class descriptions and schedules here).

About Krav Fit
The padded floor reaches from wall to wall, providing maximum space for Krav Fit’s students to learn optimal self-defense skills. The Krav Kids program teaches basic moves while instilling a sense of discipline and respect, and the adult program tosses in more difficult moves, like weight training and parallel parking. Instructors also teach individuals in law enforcement and the military.
