Krav Maga (contact combat) was developed for the Israeli military and is the official system of self-defense and hand-to-hand combat of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), the Israeli National Police and other security services. Krav Maga was founded and formed by Imi Lichtenfeld and continues to advance and be modified by the top instructors of the IDF.

Krav Maga is a preferred system for military, law enforcement and security professionals. Krav Maga is also taught to civilian men, women and children and is one of the most effective forms of self-defense and realistic training in the world. Krav Maga is deployed by the IDF, including Special Forces Units, Israeli Police and Security Branches and by many other elite units in North America, South America, Europe, and around the world.

Krav Maga is a hardcore system of self-defense techniques, including multiple attacker defenses and defense against impact weapons, knives and firearms. Realistic scenarios are emphasized in training as an important part of the curriculum.

Krav Maga provides the most efficient form of defense against dangerous situations, hostile threats and surviving violent encounters. Physical attacks addressed in training include avoiding and defending against common grabs, strikes and chokes, multiple attackers and assailants armed with weapons. Krav Maga offers methods that may be applied in hostage situations and skills for responding to protect others in danger.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide leading edge protection and fitness training for individuals, families and professionals to detect, evade and stop evolving threats making communities safer and healthier. This mission is achieved through teaching realistic self-defense, firearms, combat fitness training and tactics in a safe responsible environment where individuals can extend their full potential. We serve as a countering force against the cycle of violence in the lives of individuals and families.

Training and coaching is designed to motivate and inspire individuals to survive and reach a life of balance, faith, physical, mental and spiritual fitness.

Nothing less than total commitment and a warrior mindset will prevail during violent encounters. When it comes to violence, intimidation, criminal attacks, sexual assault and trafficking, national statistics indicate a clear need for preparation when citizens may face a hostile encounter.


Train smart and be prepared to mitigate a hostile attack. Our accelerated methods develop a total warrior mindset and effective skills to detect, evade, de-escalate and stop violent threats.
