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

I was in Bernado class for almost 6 months. Sadly, because of work reason, I have to move. I have learned a lot from SwiftKick. I came in as a kickboxing background student and came out as a martial arts student. I have learned more defense skills, move technique, and kick skills. If I can stay longer, I believe I can learn more skills. All instructors are very nice and reachable. For adult class, your classmates are great instructor, too.read more

We are so happy we signed our Liam up with Swiftkick Marital Arts in RB. We started 2 months ago with our 9yr old and he has made such great progress and actually loves going 3 times a week. If he is in a bad mood going he comes out of there super happy. He smiles through the whole class. We just signed up our 7 year old this weekend and he is so far loving it also. The staff are absolutely amazing with the kids.read more
We are so grateful that we found Swiftkick Martial Arts. We were introduced by the after school program they offered on our schools campus. After just 7 weeks of training, through that program, we already saw a difference in our children’s behavior, attitudes and confidence. We knew we needed to continue. We appreciate the flexibility of the program and the great leadership offered by the coaches in each class. We now have all three of our kids in the program. We feel good about investing into their health, their character and their safety.read more

My son has been practicing at SwiftKick Martial Arts for about two years. We have been nothing but pleased with the level of instruction, the professionalism of the teachers and staff, and the difference it has made in our son's life. We love how there are always many instructors available to help a child, give them a little motivation, or keep them focused. The teachers know all of the kids, by name, and they engage them personally by knowing who they are and what they are interested in. One thing I remember from our first day, was that Mr. Smith knew that my child was new, he knew his name and he welcomed him. That little personal touch can make an uneasy child more comfortable, that little thing, has stayed with me all this time and I think it is what makes SwiftKick so special.read more

My 5 year old and 8 year old started at SwiftKick about a year ago and have loved it. I have watched them become more focused, gain strength and coordination and have fun doing it! About 9 months ago, my husband and I decided to join. I have become more confident and love the fact that I am getting great exercise and learning important self defense skills. There are plenty of class times to choose from throughout the week and all of the instructors are knowledgeable and kind. I would highly recommend SwiftKick for the entire family!read more

Our oldest daughter has been a part of Swiftkick for 4 years and she loves it. It has given her tons of confidence and let her grow as a leader. The coaches definitely engage with our kids and take an individualized approach with teaching them. While our kids have grown and have a great time there, if there is one thing that they can improve upon, it's that having more classes especially at the more advanced level would be awesome!read more

My son has been a student at SwiftKick for over 10 years. The awesome thing about SwiftKick Martial Arts is while they teach self-defense, they also teach self-control. The entire staff are incredibly patient, and mix in fun activities to get students (adult and children alike) to be active, learn self-control, and have a ton of fun doing it. A few years ago, after seeing how much fun our son was having, my wife and I also started and have been loving it ever since!read more

Jiu Jitsu Training: Smart Self-Defense for Our Modern World

Are you interested in learning more about Jiu Jitsu training in Carlsbad? As one of the foundational styles used by professional MMA fighters, it is no wonder that Jiu Jitsu has continued to increase in popularity in recent years in Southern California and across the world.

Students of Jiu Jitsu learn how to effectively defend themselves against larger, stronger opponents. Because of this, Jiu Jitsu appeals to men, women and children who want to feel confident in their ability to defeat any kind of attack, from any kind of attacker.

At SwiftKick Martial Arts Carlsbad, we use valuable aspects of Jiu Jitsu training in our applied mixed martial arts programs. Our curriculum aims to provide a well-rounded martial arts education that can be used by anyone in functional, real world settings. With our unique training programs, children and adults will learn a variety of practical martial arts skills that they can take from the mat to any self-defense situation or physical altercation they might face.

When you are up against an attacker, wouldn’t you like to feel confident that you can overpower them and defend yourself and those you love?

Jiu Jitsu training helps students to decrease their fear and increase their confidence that they can protect what matters most. Like other styles of martial arts, Jiu Jitsu training empowers people to better understand their bodies, their physical and mental abilities and their belief in themselves in the face of even the most extreme adversity.

Why Train in Jiu Jitsu?

Jiu Jitsu primarily focuses on ground training techniques. Using an understanding of proper timing, leverage, positioning and moves such as locks, chokes, throws and other take down tactics, students will gain the skills to hold their ground against even the most aggressive of opponents. Jiu Jitsu training involves live sparring where students can apply the skills they are learning on a moving, resisting opponent to simulate a real world threat. This makes Jiu Jitsu one of the most effective martial arts styles out there today.

Live training not only allows students to gain a better mastery of the skills, but with the removal of dangerous elements such as strikes and kicks, students can train with minimal risk of injury and less fear. At SwiftKick Carlsbad, we strive to give all of our students the most effective, functional martial arts training in a fun, positive and supportive environment. We believe that martial arts training does not end when you leave the studio. It is a way of life.

Advantages of Carlsbad Jiu Jitsu Training

Even if you are not looking to become a serious Jiu Jitsu competitor, you’ll find that the study of Jiu Jitsu offers students many benefits above and beyond its powerful self-defense techniques. It provides a set of physical tactics as well as important character building skills that students can bring with them anywhere, from the classroom to the boardroom and anywhere else you are expected to perform at a high level.

The beneficial effects that training in Jiu Jitsu can provide students of all ages include:

  • Increased ability to solve problems in stressful situations
  • Gains in self-confidence and your ability to defend against any opponent
  • Greater trust in yourself that you can persevere when the odds are against you
  • A sense of camaraderie and a larger feeling of community
  • More self-discipline and a greater mastery of the value of hard work
  • Substantial gains in physical fitness, strength, flexibility and balance
  • The satisfaction of knowing that you can always improve yourself
