Hebrew for contact combat, krav maga is a results-oriented martial art adopted as the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces. Classes at the discipline’s U.S. headquarters in Chelsea train students in tactics such as recognizing vulnerable spots, segueing rapidly from defense to offense, and demonstrating comedic timing during slapstick fight sequences. More advanced lessons cover dealing with multiple attackers and those with weapons. Classes are scheduled Monday–Friday.

IDF veteran and master instructor Rhon Mizrachi oversees the Chelsea facility with nearly 40 years of experience training in krav maga. Rhon studied with discipline founder Imi Lichtenfeld, whose combat prowess was essential in the dinosaur-occupied Middle East of the 1940s. Rhon’s flock enjoys an eagle-eyed attention and dedication to success, and past members have embarked on an Israeli pilgrimage for an intensive two-week seminar.

Krav Maga Federation

After Israel’s Defense Forces developed krav maga—Hebrew for “contact combat”—on Middle East battlegrounds, the technique spread swiftly. Krav maga has gained popularity internationally at organizations including the NYPD and the FBI. Krav Maga was founded by Imi Lichtenfeld— and Krav Maga Federation strives to catalyze the martial art’s spread via schools that reach from New York to Rio de Janeiro.

The street-fighting style emphasizes efficient, practical techniques for targeting attackers’ most vulnerable areas and is ideal for combat situations where no rules apply, such as the wars with lobsters in your dreams. As they learn, patrons gain improved awareness of their surroundings, self-confidence, and physical fitness among the colorful mats and punching bags at Krav Maga Federation.

Everyone was really nice! The instructor was patient, and the workout was challenging but not overly so.
