Learn Krav Maga Self Defense - Everywhere!

Krav Maga is designed to adapt to various circumstances in various settings.  We generally train in studios but we don’t limit ourselves to these places.  Why? Assaults can occur anytime, anywhere.  

Here are some of the places you can learn Krav Maga.

Your Office:  Many of us spend a significant portion of our lives at the office.  Learn viable escape routes, common objects in the office you can use to defend yourself with, defending in a setting with chairs, tables, cubicles……

Your Home:  Home invasions are particularly disturbing because they occur where you should feel safest and might involve vulnerable people you care about – spouse, kids….  Learn how to escape, use common objects and prepare your family.

Public Transit, Cars and Parking Lots:  On the subway, streetcar, train....   Road rage, carjacking, underground/above-ground parking lot assaults.  There are many ways to better prepare and defend in these settings.

Restaurants, Cafes, Bars:  Owners, employees, patrons have trained in these settings that can be crowded and include many obstacles – chairs, tables etc…

Schools/Campus:  Students learn to protect themselves in a setting where they spend much of their time. Bullying, campus safety....

Outside:  Parks, parking lots, anywhere.  It is beneficial to train where you have to consider sunlight, various surfaces (gravel, grass, stairs, snow…), outdoor clothing……

Essentially, Krav Maga can be taught everywhere.  In fact, we recommend training in as many settings as possible.

After all, we don't choose where assaults happen.  

Stay Safe,
