PUBLIC TRAINING CLASSES
Israeli Krav Maga is designed to prepare civilians to defend against any type of street confrontation. Awareness training is paramount and de-escalation/avoidance tactics are heavily emphasized. IKM self-defense teaches students to defend against unarmed and armed assailants wielding any type if weapon, including edged, impact or a firearm. Multiple opponent strategies and tactics are also emphasized. Our training focuses on real-life, street-proven self-defense techniques, while integrating extensive fitness conditioning to further hone one's skill sets.
We train Men, Women and Teens, age 13 and up. Our goal is to teach students to be proficient in self-defense in the shortest time possible, while providing strong technique retention and dynamic training scenarios.
Public training classes are open to Civilians, Law Enforcement & Military Personnel.
WOMEN’S SELF-DEFENSE SEMINARS
L.A.C.E. - Ladies Awareness, Confidence & Empowerment - "A Girls Guide to Kicking Butt!"
Our specialized Women’s Self-Defense program - L.A.C.E. - has been designed to prepare women both physically and mentally, to react and defend themselves if ever put in a real life threatening situation. The training covers a wide variety of scenarios both inside and outside (vehicles, dark parking lot, etc.) of our training facility. The women who attend these seminars are taught the most effective, street proven self-defense techniques such as: releases from grabs, chokes and bear hugs, striking defenses, weapon disarming and ground survival techniques. We place an emphasis on preparing women to be able to defend themselves under stress - eliminating the “shutting down and freezing” reaction.
Training will provide you with the tools to fend off a would-be attacker, while feeling safe, secure and empowered in your everyday life. Krav Maga relies on one's natural instincts & reflexes, and is an easy to learn self-defense system for women of all ages, sizes and physical abilities.
This program is offered on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, from 7:45–9:15p at the Cherry Hill Training Center. $25 for non-members (free for members). For more information, please contact: 856-428-5728
JUNIOR KRAV MAGA
The Junior Krav Maga program effectively teaches children, ages 7-12, self-defense and anti-bullying techniques. The curriculum is designed to help motivate children through exercise, beginner conditioning drills, and personal safety education (i.e. verbal de-escalation training). The objective of the class is to build the child’s discipline and self-esteem. Introducing children to the dedication, discipline, and motivation required to be successful martial artists will have a direct and positive impact on any other future endeavourers. Students will build a strong foundation in Krav Maga as they are introduced to basic blocks, the proper use of measured force counter-attacks, hold escapes, groundwork, street safety tips, anti-bullying tactics and awareness strategies.
Students will also be introduced to practical and effective fitness drills and general health and well-being tips. We believe that having a strong foundation of skill sets as a child leads to empowerment and confidence in any endeavor the child wishes to pursue.
Junior Krav Maga classes are offered at the Cherry Hill Training Center on Monday’s and Wednesday’s from 4:30–5:15p. For more information, please contact: 856-428-5728
