SB Krav Maga
A typical workout at SB Krav Maga can look intimidating at first––chokeholds, plastic training handguns, lightning-fast kicks in the gut––but after closer examination, the images lose their menace. Krav maga, a fighting technique designed by the Israeli army to transform civilians into soldiers as quickly and effectively as possible, focuses on learning self-defense against armed and unarmed assailants. Students jump right into learning the basics, working in small groups to refine techniques such as escaping from chokeholds, fending off multiple attackers, and women's self-defense techniques. Certified instructors instruct students on how to throw punches, elbows, knees, and kicks while minimizing injury. High-intensity cardio drills are sprinkled throughout the classes that focus mostly on performing drills with a partner decked in pads. In classes such as Combat Cardio Fitness, individuals can burn up to 800 calories in a session, making it a great fitness regimen in addition to teaching useful self-defense techniques.
