What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Krav Maga is the official self-defense system first developed by the Israeli army in the 1940s and is mainly utilized by the Israel Defense Forces' special units and reconnaissance brigades and recently by regular infantry brigades. Krav Maga uses a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, boxing, and wrestling, along with realistic fight training and has been taught to multiple military units, hundreds of law enforcement and government agencies, as well as thousands of civilians in the United States. Training also covers the study and development of situational awareness to develop an understanding of one's surroundings, learning to understand the psychology of a street confrontation, and identifying potential threats before an attack occurs. It also covers ways to deal with physical and verbal methods to avoid violence whenever possible. Krav Maga teaches mental toughness using controlled scenarios to strengthen mental fortitude in order for students to control the impulse and not do something rash. Instead, attack only when it necessary and as a last resort.

What equipment is provided? Is there anything visitors need to bring? Wear comfortable workout clothes and we provide the rest! Training requires physical activity, kicking and punching targets and doing exercises that require getting down on the floor. We take great pride in keeping our matted floors spotlessly clean and our equipment sanitized, safe and up to date.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I want people to feel confident and know how to protect themselves as well as their friends and family. Krav Maga is a simple and effective self defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements,practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios which encourages students to avoid confrontation. If this is impossible or unsafe, Krav Maga promotes finishing a fight as quickly as possible.
