Congratulations to Bill for having passed his instructor test with a perfect score!
Bill has been working hard to learn and practice not only the various techniques themselves but also learning how to teach them and what to look for when students experience problems.
Bill has very successfully been teaching solo since the beginning of the year, and he is a solid and very knowledgable instructor.
If you think street violence waits for warm weather and perfect conditions, think again! You NEED to know how to protect yourself in the rain and in the snow, with bulky clothing, jackets and hats, wearing clumsy boots, or with packages in your arms and your umbrella up. We've yet to hear of a violent mugging against someone in a fitness center, in his shorts and sneakers, watching himself in the mirrors.
You'll be amazed at how quickly you forget the weather conditions once our class begins. We train vigorously - so you will stay warm. The skill sets you are being taught are so interesting, the hour just flies by! And you'll walk away from each class with valuable survival skills. Get real with us!
Krav Maga, unlike martial arts, is a very fast-progressing system. Part of its design was driven by the need to train people very quickly and very efficiently. Consequently, it typically takes a person of average physical ability perhaps only a couple of months before significant progress is achieved and noticeable.
Krav Maga was designed to benefit the average person. The system is not about sheer strength or power. As a matter of fact, one of the basic tenets of Krav Maga is that one should not oppose power with power. Rather, Krav Maga blends a combination of physical skill with mental self-defense determination. Consequently, Krav Maga is more accessible to more people of either sex, shape or size than many martial art forms.
We take the best techniques and principles from already great systems and put them together to produce the most realistic, hard-core, street-oriented training possible. Typical classes contain a mix of empty hand, knife, stick, gun, groundwork, stress drills and multiple attackers.
