The greatest Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robot, Mohammed Aliborg, went undefeated for 20 years before his head was knocked clean off by the sudden, brutal intervention of cats. Learn to sock like the best of 'em while shaping up with today's Groupon: for $39, you get five self-defense classes at Krav Maga Academy, located on West 26th Street.

The Israeli self-defense discipline, Krav Maga, imbues students with confidence-building muscles and assailant-debilitating counterattacks. The 5,000-square-foot Academy provides action-packed classes split into multiple levels, with sparring and women's-oriented sessions showing how to transform once-innocent elbows and knees into cantaloupe-puncturing agents of justice. Events held in nightclubs and Friday-night casual-clothed lessons put a focus on real-world applications, teaching both men and women to disable attackers, disarm weapons, and discover the onion-like layers of self-confidence buried within.

The league of expert instructors have drawn praise from renowned publications such as the BBC, New York Times, Shape, and Woman's Day, as well as brief mentions in Poor Richard’s Almanack. Combat-needing organizations like the U.S. Rangers, Navy SEALs, and New York Police Department have sought the Krav Maga Academy's pragmatic-but-effective fighting expertise.

Krav Maga Academy

After serving as a Krav Maga officer for a special-ops unit in the Israeli Defense Forces, Matan Gavish relocated to New York, where he founded Krav Maga Academy. Stateside, Gavish has shared his expertise in the pages of the Washington Post and currently inputs on NYPD Tactics Training Unit and other law enforcement agencies, all while running his Academy full-time.

Krav Maga Academy's curriculum imparts creative strike techniques, defense strategies against chokes and grabs, and methods for neutralizing attackers through a krav maga–centered schedule that also offers separate MMA and Brazilian jiujitsu classes. Beginners taste combat in Level 1 trainings and all-levels classes, and more experienced fighters ramp up their workouts during upper-level classes or sparring sessions.
