The ultimate goal of self-defense is to avoid, prevent or de-escalate situations before they become dangerous. Awareness & attention skills are essential for our younger students in helping them make effective decisions in regards to their personal safety.


Krav Maga is one of the most practical self-defense systems in the world. Not all problems are avoidable and should a situation occur where you need to get physical, these classes will offer basic techniques and tactics that will help you solve the problem and get to safety quickly.

“Our son had an extremely positive experience. . . Thank you so much for creating and maintaining a positive and professional environment for our son. Your instruction and facility were many steps beyond the basics: from your personal and group communications during each class, and from your instructional props and the training floor, the whole experience was several steps above a basic professional level that [we] anticipated or hoped for our son.”
