For more than a decade, we’ve been committed to building and developing our students to become the best they can possibly be. As a student trains to become a CMA Black Belt Champion, they will experience progress, growth and change in the classroom and in many areas of their lives. Many students have reported to us that their increased level of physical fitness and the confidence they’ve gained through their Martial Arts experience has allowed them to perform better at work, in school and at home. We hope that you will find our staff of Black Belt Instructors to be a very positive influence on your life.

Over the course of your training you will be gradually exposed to a variety of extremely effective blocks, strikes and self-defense techniques that will give you confidence and a very high level of overall physical fitness.

What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is the official self-defense and fighting system used by the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.), Israeli Police and Security Services, and numerous U.S. law enforcement agencies. It is also taught in institutions associated with the Israeli Ministry of Education. Since 1964, Krav Maga has also been taught to civilians all over the world. Krav Maga is comprised of three main parts: self defense, hand to hand combat, and fitness.
Why Krav Maga?
The system is based on your body’s natural instincts, not on elaborate movements.
The system does not require years of training and devotion. It is designed to be learned quickly and to be retained under stress.
The system does not use katas. Class time is devoted to training against real attacks.
Classes are informal; no gis – belts are awarded but not emphasized. Students train wearing shoes, and we sometimes have them train in street clothes.
Krav Maga is the most battle and street tested Self Defense System in the world.
