What is Krav Maga?
Empty Hand Self Defense
Learn simple and effective empty hand self-defense against armed and unarmed predators. This is a very unique art which was originally developed in the late 1930s to teach unarmed Israelis to defend themselves against armed soldiers. It was later taught to Israeli Special Forces and is their official hand to hand combat method.
It is important to have options! Learn to effectively use an edged tool as a means of self-defense. In this class, we will cover elements of Military Tactical Knife, Apache Knife Fighting, and Filipino Knife Fighting.
