help lead to personal success in life. Learning these Life Skills are just as important as breaking boards or
kicking high. What good is physical fitness and the ability to defend yourself if you aren't prepared to live your
life and be successful while doing so. The programs have even more of a positive impact when parents
discuss and reinforce the monthly themes at home with their children. Life skills discussed include confidence,

Krav Maga is an Israeli self-defense and fighting system used by law enforcement agencies, police, militaries
and anti-terrorism units worldwide. Krav Maga is a highly evolved system of combat that consists of a wide
combination of techniques sourced from Aikido, Judo, boxing and wrestling along with realistic fight training.
Developed and continually enhanced during years of conflict, Krav Maga emphasizes easy to learn and
extremely efficient techniques that have been battle tested in real life confrontations. Students learn to defend
themselves against hostile actions, to avoid injuries and to quickly overcome their assailant through the use of
MMA (mixed martial arts). Krav Maga defenses address a variety of aggressive acts, such as: punches,
chokes, bear hugs, headlocks, grabs, ground attacks. In addition, you learn how to defense yourself against
multiple assailants, assailants armed with firearms, edged weapons, or blunt objects. Furthermore, techniques
used in Krav Maga are based on instinctive movements and utilize gross motor skills. Students apply the
principles and techniques in a multitude of situations, even unfamiliar or adverse circumstances such as dark
surrounding. Another situation might be when you’re sitting or laying down with limited freedom of
movement. Most of all you will perform and train under extreme stress and fatigue. In addition, Krav Maga
incorporates specialized training methods used to challenge students physically and mentally. This type of
training also strengthens the spirit and develops the ability to deal with violent confrontations under stress.
