Benefits of Krav Maga:
Increased Perception & Awareness
First you will learn how to spot trouble a mile away, and how to avoid it. You will learn to use simple and effective movements in various combinations to fend off any violent attacks. This means that through your training you will improve your ability to adjust to new situations through improvisation training, an important and unique feature of this system. Of course, this requires using your “head” as well as your body, and thus our Krav Maga training programs address your thought process as well as physical action.
Gain More Confidence
Improvisation also allows for limitations in your physical abilities. Not everyone can bring his or her leg up to a 180-degree angle, and therefore the system is geared towards teaching people from all walks of life, from those who aren't very athletic, to those of you who train all day long.
As a student you are taught a variety of possible defensive reactions for each possible attack or situation you can face, building upon an actual framework of use-able techniques. You are then encouraged to utilise the responses that are appropriate for you. This is a process that you will find builds huge confidence in your ability.
Physical fitness is closely interwoven into the system, your workout always includes a number of cardiovascular and strength building exercises, as well as stretching to increase your flexibility.
Emphasis is put on developing attributes that will enhance your ability to survive such as speed, endurance, strength, accuracy and coordination.
Krav Maga is a system for those of you seeking some serious self-defence training. It also caters well for those of you who come from a martial arts background, and it's common for martial artists to fall in love with this amazing system.
