You might not want to think about it, but we live in a dangerous world. Every day, there are stories in the news about rape, assault, robbery and murder. And even if you keep away from drugs and are in good standing with your relatives and neighbors, there are always those random occurrences where you become the target of someone’s violence. With just a few hours each week, you can prepare yourself by signing up for a Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense class.
Why Krav Maga?
A self-defense class at Krav Maga Worldwide will increase your mental and physical strength, enabling you to combat potential danger. This martial art and self-defense system was developed for the military in Israel some 70 years ago, and it is still used today both there and in the United States.
One of the most common applications for Krav Maga is for police work. It was developed specifically for street-fighting situations, not to conquer others but to keep from being hurt.
Hit’em Where It Hurts
Let’s say that you suddenly find yourself under attack. Would you know what to do? More importantly, would you know how to stay calm so that you can survive the attack better than your enemy can?
In a Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense class, students are encouraged to avoid confrontation if possible. But if it cannot be avoided, your safety is primary, and knowing what to do is essential. Krav Maga teaches you to finish a fight as quickly as possible, aiming your attack at the enemy’s most vulnerable body parts. Again, avoiding a fight is the best route, but if it comes down to “him or me” - you need to know what to do.
Not Your Sweet Ol’ Grandma’s Self-defense
A Krav Maga Worldwide self defense class doesn’t just include techniques to avoid injury. Krav Maga teaches that attacking the eyes, face, neck, solar plexus, ribs, groin, knee, foot or fingers will bring about the most efficient and effective defense and will save you from getting hurt or killed.
Drill! Drill! Drill!
How do you keep your cool in a hot situation? Consistent drilling in a Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense class gradually builds confidence and a built-in response against attacks. Krav Maga also teaches you to be aware of your surroundings to prevent danger if possible. This awareness involves learning to think straight while you’re in danger and noticing ways of escape and items that could be used as weapons. The drills make your reactions instinctive so that, if you are taken completely unaware, your response kicks in immediately and you take action right away.
