Since I started at FDKM I've become much more confident that I can defend myself, I've gotten quicker, stronger, and more fit than I've been since I was a kid. The instructors prioritize safety and correct technique and will work with you individually to modify techniques and exercises as appropriate. . . I can't recommend this place enough." -D.D.

What would you do if you became a victim of violence?

Have you ever thought about trying out self-defense classes but didn't know where to start? Have you seen Krav Maga on TV & movies and wanted to try out the moves for yourself? Are you hesitant to jump into regular classes because you feel you need to be more fit or have a limited schedule or . . .?

In the First Defense Krav Maga Foundations Course, you'll have a unique opportunity to learn methods of prevention, de-escalation and a wide range of life-saving self-defense techniques in a structured, 4-week format. This course can be a stand-alone experience, but we find that most participants use it as as stepping stone for entry into our more expansive program where will continue to build on the techniques, tactics, and mental capacities you'll be introduced to throughout the 4 weeks.

Meyrav Elbow"I LOVE Krav Maga and this training facility. I signed up myself and two kids (teen age girl and 23 year old son) for the foundation classes. Krav Maga is the most interesting and challenging self defense there is. The very patient instructors are amazing and give you all the personal attention you need (I seem to need quite a bit). Be warned- you will sweat profusely and be pushed to your limits. You will wake up the next morning with bruises and aches and you will LOVE EVERY SECOND OF IT. . .!" - E.M.
