Krav Maga Teaches You Awareness of Your Surroundings
Designed to be a close combat defense system, Krav Maga gives you the tools to fend off single or multiple attackers. We train through pressure drills one-on-one with partners or in trios. These drills help:
- Train you to keep attackers in your cone of sight
- Grow your awareness of where physical barriers are
- Train your coordination to fight one or multiple attackers
In addition to growing your awareness of your surroundings, you will also increase your reactivity through training with reactive striking and preventative strategies.
