Krav Maga is the Israeli martial art which teaches self defense and fitness. Students of Krav Maga are taught a series of strategies to assess and respond to common situations, such as facing a bully. Teens are always taught to first and foremost to get away, to get help, and to try to deescalate the situation. When that fails, students practice a technique that includes a warning strike followed by escape, and finally, they learn how to stand up for themselves and how to counterattack if a sitation escalates and becomes threatening. Teens are empowered and gain confidence when they rehearse how to handle real-life situations. Exercises and self defense practice in class incoporporate balance, coordination, energy, and other key elements of fitness along with life skills such as confidence, teamwork, respect, discipline, and respect. In lieu of a full martial arts uniform, students will be asked to wear a class t-shirt that the instructor will furish for $10.00 on the first day of class. Students should also wear shorts, leggings, or loose, comfortable athletic pants, and comfortable athletic shoes or sneakers with their class t-shirt.

Duels? Bah! Fighting isn t always to civilized. Sometimes it s an unfair fight with two or more opponents attacking one person. Sometimes the Musketeers are outnumbered by the Cardinal s Guards, and sometimes it s a full-out battle! We re used to focusing our attention on just one other person in our fight, now we have to really focus on spatial awareness and timing when sharing the stage with multiple fighters. Students will work in both small groups as well as large ones. Everybody dies, no one gets hurt!
