About Krav Maga

Krav Maga was originally developed in Israel by Imi Lichtenfeld as the official system of self-defense and hand-to-hand combat for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Today Krav Maga is known worldwide as the ideal means for defending one’s life or the life of a third party.

Krav Maga emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. The Krav Maga system is utilized by law enforcement agencies, military personnel, and the average citizen looking to learn practical self-defense and get in shape.

Here's What Our Partners and Students Have to Say
Lisa S (Student)
Krav Maga Worldwide is the most effective system I’ve ever practiced. The self-defense and conditioning classes are outstanding. The overall health benefits are amazing! I also feel that as a result of training in this system I have the will and ability to defend myself if necessary.
Shawn A (Student)
I have been doing various Martial Arts for 30 years, Karate, Tae Kwon do, and Hapkido. That for me was like building the body of the spear. Training in Krav Maga Worldwide has put a point on that spear. The training is direct, effective, practical and a lot of fun. The fittness side of Krav Maga Worldwide is second to none, the instructors are professional, knowledgeable and dedicated.
Ryan S (Student)
For what I do, the discipline and principles I have learned through Krav Maga Worldwide are essential. For the dangers of the modern world, this is the only martial art that makes sense. In Krav Maga Worldwide there is no compromise for survival, which makes is absolutely necessary in my field.
Greg D (Student)
Krav Maga Worldwide is great. I think that Krav Maga Worldwide is an amazing system - its simple and practical to any situation.
Hector S (Student)
To begin with I was a skeptic at first and hesitant to try it out until I was convinced by my co-workers to just give it a shot. All it took was that one single try to get me to sign up and continue progressing along. It's a great and easy to learn Self Defense system that doesn't require years of training or study. I truly do feel confident knowing that I can handle myself better out in the streets now if ever needed. Great instructors and classes that keep you motivated. I always look forward to making it to class and learning some new techniques.
Kyle H (Instructor)
Krav Maga Worldwide has really changed my life for the better because I'm in the best shape of my life, and I'm getting to do everything I love while having a great time. Not to mention the compliments I've gotten from my friends and family on my accomplishments. I've never been so dedicated to anything in my life and it feels great!
Miriam S (Instructor)
I became a Krav Maga Worldwide Instructor because I wanted to help people acquire the knowledge and skills that Krav Maga Worldwide provides. Specifically, I love teaching it because it gives people self-defense and fighting skills that are universally effective, regardless of one's size or strength, that can be used if a person is ever forced to fight for his or her life. But more importantly, my goal and personal satisfaction as an instructor is achieved when I see students gain not just the Krav Maga Worldwide skills, but greater self-confidence, a sense of accomplishment, and of course, fantastically increased physical fitness!
Trisha M (Student)
I've been on many different sports teams (gymnastics, track, volleyball, etc.) and worked out almost every day of my life. Still, nothing was ever as hard as Krav Maga Worldwide. I felt challenged and empowered. When I left class, I had never felt more like every muscle in my body had been worked out. Anytime my friends want a good workout, I now highly recommend Krav Maga Worldwide.
