    Think you're ready to TEST?

    Quick word about testing - DON’T You read this right. You would have to be more than slightly insane to willingly put yourself through it so ask yourself WHY? Better have a strong answer too because if it’s a weak ass one like “well I’ve been here 3 months and I feel I’m ready” you will get creamed. The test at Krav Maga Detroit has a purpose. We don’t see Krav Maga as a martial art where from day one you are on a schedule to get your black belt. Guys who one day might want to take your life don’t care about your belts or patches or diplomas and neither do we. The test is here to simulate one of the worst days of your life. It’s ....

    Krav Maga – A Lesson in Spiritual Warfare

    Krav Maga – A Lesson in Spiritual Warfare Embarking on any course of self-improvement or self-development takes a lot of hard work, honesty, self-reflection and a great deal of introspection. Krav Maga is no different. Sure, you can learn all of the strikes and self-defense moves available and be relatively well equipped to handle yourself in a physical altercation. Or maybe not. There are no guarantees with learning Krav Maga. That’s why it’s important to train every part of you - not just the physical. You need to also train your spirit. And awaken that warrior within you. Warriors are not born. They’re made. As Sun Tzu put it, ....

  •  Krav Maga MINDSET

    Krav Maga MINDSET

    In Krav Maga we stress mindset. The correct mindset is defined as "a fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person's responses to, and interpretations of situations" So what does this mean and how does it relate to Krav Maga? Well, that goes back to a when and why we would use Krav. Specifically, situations where tensions are high and potentially escalate to physical confrontation. Someone wants to hurt you. Their reasons are irrelevant. If a situation escalates to you needing to defend yourself you need to be able to switch your attitude or disposition appropriately. When we instill and reinforce mindset in class its because this helps you 'respond and ....

  • Fighting Fit

    Fighting Fit
    Why do we stress fitness at a self-defense studio? Aren't you just here to learn the techniques? Well, the answer is very simple. The better shape you are in, the better fighter you will be and the better chance you have to get home safe. Everything we do is for a reason. Sure, some instructors get creative and add their flare to the tried and true format of a Krav Maga class, but it all has a purpose. For example, when we do push-ups we like to keep our elbows close to the body. This is a tricep push up vs. the more common chest push up. The motion is the same as how we throw punches. Elbow down, straight out. A strong pushup means a meaner punch, so we do ....

    It's 2020 and you are looking in the mirror wondering why your pants fit just a little tighter! So you deicide to "diet" by storming the kitchen and throwing all the "bad foods" away.

Training is NOT just running or moving on a cardio machine. It requires all the puzzle pieces in place and a working BALANCE to occur.
