Train in Krav Maga San Diego

Take Your Self-Defense to the Next Level

No one wants to become the victim of a crime. We all want to feel confident in our ability to defend ourselves and our families anytime, anywhere. Many San Diego residents naturally look to martial arts training when they want to develop the physical and mental strength to defend against any kind of attack they might face. But with the many options available, how do you choose the right martial arts style for your self-defense?

One of the most popular self-defense systems available today is Krav Maga. Originally taught to the Israeli military in the 1950s, Krav Maga teaches practical moves that anyone can use in real-life danger situations. Today, it is taught to law enforcement agencies throughout the world as an effective means to prepare their personnel for a wide variety of attacks, for a wide variety of dangerous situations.

San Diego Krav Maga students come in all ages and fitness levels, but they share one common goal: to learn the physical combat skills and self-defense techniques they need to protect themselves and their loved ones.

What is Krav Maga?

Unlike other martial arts, Krav Maga does not have competitions – it’s all about learning a system of survival. Krav Maga is a street fighting system that helps students learn the stances, strikes and fall techniques that they need to defend against the most common threats they might face like muggings, armed and unarmed assaults and multi-person attacks. Training focuses on teaching students to stay calm in the face of a threat, and how to avoid threats all together.

The practical application of Krav Maga training is just one of the reasons why it is a much sought after skillset for military, law enforcement and other international government agencies. Students of Krav Maga learn how to think fast and take action using simple, effective and intuitive self-defense techniques that anyone can learn.

What are the Benefits of Krav Maga Training?

Men, women and children who train in Krav Maga not only learn how to protect themselves and others, they also gain many other valuable benefits that will aid them in leading more successful lives. Some of the primary benefits of Krav Maga self-defense training include:

  • An increase in your self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Greater peace of mind knowing that you can defeat any opponent
  • A full-body workout that strengthens your body and mind
  • A positive and healthy way to relieve stress and anxiety
  • Improved performance in all areas of your life: health, work and relationships
