This year, Krav Maga Worldwide is proud to have earned the award for Best Martial Arts Instruction. Since its founding in 1999, Krav Maga Worldwide has strived to provide top notch training in krav maga, self-defense, mixed martial arts, fighting, and fitness throughout the United States. We are honored that LA Weekly readers have recognized our efforts and selected us as the best MMA gym in Los Angeles.

Our Commitment to the Community

At Krav Maga Worldwide, we are committed to providing the people of Los Angeles the training best suited for their needs. We understand that what makes Krav Maga training so unique is the multiple benefits it provides, making it a worthwhile program for people of all fitness levels and walks of life. At Krav Maga Worldwide, we believe in inclusion, trust, and respect. It is with this foundation that virtually any student can feel safe to push themselves and set goals they never before would have thought possible.

Providing the Best MMA Training

For those new to the term, MMA stands for mixed martial arts. The founding of Krav Maga by Imi Lichtenfeld was inspired by a widespread need for self-defense within the Jewish community of his home city. Drawing from a range of self-defense techniques, Lichtenfeld developed a fighting style unique in its speed and practical effectiveness. When the state of Israel was formed in 1948, Lichtenfeld was recruited to train its soldiers in this technique, which would come to be known as Krav Maga.

Today, Krav Maga is a favored fighting style among the top-ranking mixed martial arts experts throughout the world. In fact, it isn’t uncommon to see fighters training at one of our Los Angeles locations. At Krav Maga Worldwide, we are proud to welcome them, whether they’re award-winning champions or novices who are just beginning their training.


Teaching Los Angeles Citizens Self-Defense

While the city of Los Angeles has much to offer in terms of culture, nightlife, outdoor activities, and the arts, residents do have to consider a crime rate comparable with any big city. Most Angelenos are aware that muggings and assaults can happen in any neighborhood, no matter the location, class, or demographic. At Krav Maga Worldwide, one of our key goals is to provide the very best in self-defense training to our students, so they can be prepared for any situation. In a city with a range of self-defense courses available to the public, we couldn’t be more proud to have been selected as the best MMA gym in Los Angeles. We strive to help our students live as safely as possible, and are honored to have earned their trust.

Respecting Fitness as a Way of Life

It’s no secret that Los Angeles is widely regarded as an unusually fitness-conscious city. As such, fitness trends and fads often come and go like the changing of seasons. However, when something comes along that proves truly beneficial, it tends to stick around. Since 1997, Krav Maga Worldwide Training Centers have provided fitness and self-defense training to the people of Los Angeles with no sign of slowing down or fading away.

This is because Krav Maga Worldwide employs a diverse and comprehensive conditioning program that gets students in the best shape of their lives while also teaching them a valuable skill. It isn’t uncommon for students who come seeking self-defense tips to continue long-term for the fitness benefits. To many, Krav Maga Worldwide isn’t just the best training center for martial arts, but the best gym in Los Angeles.

Continuing Our Service to Los Angeles

While we at Krav Maga Worldwide are thrilled to be recognized by LA Weekly readers as the best MMA gym in Los Angeles, we have no intention of resting on our laurels. We continue to offer the best of ourselves to the community, through continued training, seminars, and participation in charity events such as Fight for The Cure.
