The self-defense system of krav maga is most closely associated with the Israeli Defense Forces, which has taught the efficient and easy-to-learn combat technique to its members since the 1940s. The system is also popular among civilians, who in the Bay Area can learn beginner through professional level defensive moves from instructors led by veteran Master Shlomi Katz, who was head of krav maga training for the counter terror school of the IDF. In addition to learning krav maga, students can opt for training in other martial arts—MMA for adults and karate for kids—as well as intense fitness classes that combine cross-training, MMA conditioning, weight training, TRX resistance, and more.

A bicycle is like any metallic organism whose parts come loose and whose chains decay under the stress of the outside world. Calmar Bicycles is staffed by friendly and highly knowledgeable cycle pros who are certified when it comes to massaging a peddler to a state of road-ready confidence. A standard tune-up entails a complete inspection and adjustment of a bike’s derailleurs, a brake adjustment for quicker and easier stopping, and a scrutinous look at all critical fasteners. Then a bike’s bearing assemblies go under the knife to crispen crucial connections before wheels are removed for a true truing, cables are lubricated to achieve minimal resistance, and a light cleaning makes the curious creature blue-ribbon ready.
