Choose Between Two Options

Developed in the late 1940s and later adopted by the Israeli Defense Forces, krav maga condenses lessons learnt on the battlefield into simultaneous offensive and defensive maneuvers. During one-hour classes, students fend off chokes, grapples, and punches often found in real-life attack situations, and mental exercises train their senses to be more aware of their surroundings. Students learn striking and grappling through sparring matches, and stress drills prepare the mind to perform under duress. The system’s simple, explosive maneuvers are designed to work with each person’s natural instincts, instead of their unnatural sixth sense.<p>

Silverback Academy

Practicing martial arts for the past 20 years, Sean "The Silverback" Stoopman has earned master bodyguard instructor certification, a Brazilian jujitsu brown belt, and a first-degree black belt through Israeli Krav International. He now lends his notorious nickname and ample expertise to teaching classes at Silverback Academy with the aid of five other trainers, each with a litany of their own achievements.

The school's disciplines are split among the practical striking, locking, and stress tests of krav maga training, and the competitive submission grappling art of Brazilian jujitsu.

Customer Reviews

Hooked after the first class!
Emily K. · October 4, 2014
Silverback Academy is a great place to learn martial arts! The instructors are very friendly and helpful; in addition the atmosphere is very non-threatening for new inexperienced participants. Even after one lesson you feel like you really learned something that you can take home as opposed to other regimens that spend weeks on simple redundant exercises that provide very little in terms of growth. Would definitely recommend this establishment.
