Krav Maga for kids is exploding in popularity around the world and for good reason.

Krav Maga helps kids to gain confidence, awareness and ability in an engaging and high energy atmosphere.
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga (pronounced Krav MaGAH) is a modern form of self-defence and evasion. Krav Maga is Hebrew for “CloseCombat”.
You might be surprised to learn, but Krav Maga has its roots in the old Czechloslovakia!
Krav Maga was created in Bratislava in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld to defend against increasing attacks on his neighbours in Pre-World War II Europe. It combines the most effective techniques and philosophies from various martial arts and fights training.
The CEO of Paypal described Krav Maga: “Part of the Krav Maga philosophy is that the best way to win a fight is not to get into a fight. We spend a lot of time figuring out how to de-escalate situations and win through the avoidance of conflict. When conflict is unavoidable, Krav Maga teaches us how to use everything at our disposal to neutralize a threat while remaining calm under pressure.
