Krav Maga systems on the whole are fairly basic, being designed to get people to handle a lot of situations very quickly. Originally the idea was to create a self-defense system rather than a fighting system; meaning quick defenses and escapes etc followed by immediate disengagement. An approach that is ideally suited for training soldiers in non-specialized infantry units and who have little time in their training schedule to spare for actual hand-to-hand combat.
Our program is far more comprehensive than the majority of Krav Maga programs that are taught outside of Israel. Our aim is to build an individual's fighting skills e.g. balance, stability and effective movement etc so that a student can survive those situations where disengagement is not an option. Within Israel this is how Krav Maga is taught, unfortunately outside of Israel this side of self-defense is rarely taught or developed. In fact in some schools that teach Krav Maga, classes may be little more than a workout, with a few self-defense techniques thrown in.
The first 6 months of our program is dedicated to getting you able to defend yourself in the shortest possible time against the most common and realistic street attacks e.g. we don't spend a lot of time dealing with unrealistic attacks such as static chokes etc and instead concentrate on those types of assault which a person is most likely to face, such as muggings, face-to-face disputes etc.
At the same time we start to develop actual fighting skills, like range control, generation of power etc that enable people to become truly comprehensive fighters. These skills take a little more time.
We have a variety of plans/packages and options that we find are best described in person (we have pricing plans that are specific to students, law enforcement, military etc and we offer a variety of discounts making it difficult to describe on a web page or try to explain them all over the phone). When you come down for a no-obligations free class we will happily explain all your options to you and find the one that fits your particular situation and needs. We also believe that when you experience a class you will be in a better position to assess the value of our training to you.

When you first come and train with us, we suggest you wear loose fitting training clothes. We are a fully matted gym and so we request that you train barefoot or that you wear dedicated mat shoes e.g. wrestling boots, martial arts shoes etc. When you join the center/academy you will be given the academy/center uniform to wear. If you wish to spar you will need to purchase sparring equipment however this type of training isn't introduced until later in your training so there is no immediate need to purchase.
Krav Maga is a combat system and there is always the chance of some pain/discomfort and the possibility of injury. However we don't use pain as a teaching tool and we do as much as is physically possible to avoid training in such a way.
Our studio is fully matted and when we do engage in contact there are strict rules enforced to make sure that there are no injuries. Our school has an excellent safety record and we do everything we can to maintain this
Whatever your fitness level is at present you will be able to take part in a Krav Maga class. In our "Beginners Krav Maga" classes we will work with you to help build up your fitness and stamina. Through the use of fighting games, drills and pad work you will soon see improvements to your fitness.
