Our goal is teach you the skills to survive real life violent assaults. No one is ever mugged in a boxing ring or octagon. Physical assaults happen on pavement and are generally unexpected and unpredictable.
In this class we learn practical defences to modern attacks. Every level of threat is examined, from someone grabbing your shirt to pulling a knife or a gun. Environmental circumstances are factored in, so whether you are sitting in a booth at a restaurant or withdrawing money from an A.T.M. the Krav Maga practitioner understands the nature of the threat and the most effective counter attack.
Each class starts with a series of warm-up exercises. This is followed with instruction on a technique. Each technique is unpacked and the details practiced to help them become muscle memory.
The techniques are simple yet very effective. They can be considered a blueprint. What you do with the blueprint is Krav Maga. This is why each class ends with drills where students are placed in scenarios where they have to respond correctly to the particular situation. Stress drills depend on muscle memory since there is very little time to think and analyze the situation.
