    Krav Maga and Motherhood: A Wonderful Combination!





    I can remember like it was yesterday, the day when my husband and I would finally become parents. Our little girl was born on February 18, 2009. As the months passed and our daughter started to grow, I started to prepare myself to get back into the real world. I finally got the clearance from the doctor to start getting back in shape-something I always did even prior to getting pregnant. So, when I got the all clear, I told myself that I really wanted to find something different. I was born in a martial arts household. My dad was a black belt in Karate and he started my interests in all things self-defense early in life. Becoming a mom became an even greater motivator for me ....

  •  in Troy - Krav Maga Detroit - “If you think you can, you will. If you think you can’t, you’re right.”

    “If you think you can, you will. If you think you can’t, you’re right.”

    “If you think you can, you will. If you think you can’t, you’re right.” For 28 weeks myself and 100 other recruits shouted that mantra every morning at 0530 as we started our day with PT. Every one of those mornings I prayed for God to strengthen me and push me forward. Some of those mornings that prayer was much more desperate than others. As difficult as the Academy was, it was still a bigger challenge for my wife, Jessica Ann . Jess CRUSHED things on the home front: staying on top of our finances, raising our daughter, and growing a new little baby who’s due in July. Without the strength and determination of my wife I would not have succeeded. ....

  •  in Troy - Krav Maga Detroit - I AM NOT A VICTIM.  NOT ME.  NOT TODAY.  NOT EVER.

    I AM NOT A VICTIM. NOT ME. NOT TODAY. NOT EVER.

    Let’s face it. Historically and statistically speaking, women have always been targets and victims of violent crimes. Whether domestic or public – crimes against women happen every day. Scientifically speaking, women do not have the pre-destined strength and size genetics gives to males, and therefore are unfortunately considered easier targets. Well, I’m not here to challenge science – but I am here to change statistics. While women may continue to be the TARGETS of violent crimes, they do NOT have to be VICTIMS. The threat is real. Michigan is ranked number 2 in the nation for human trafficking. SELF-PROTECTION is necessary in the world we live in today. I ....

    No Mind in the Gym

    No Mind in the Gym By John Carra So, I watched the LAST SAMURAI recently, a Tom Cruise Movie from 2003, and there was a scene where Tom Cruise’s character, Nathan Algren, is sparring with Ujio a Samurai Sword-master and is having difficulties. Then Nobutada, the son of Katsumoto the Leader of the Samurai, approaches Nathan and the following conversation ensues. Nobutada:
    Please forgive, too many mind. Nathan Algren:
    Too many mind? Nobutada:
    Hai. Mind the sword, mind the people watch, mind the enemy, too many mind… [pause] No mind. What Nobutada is referring to is the mushin no shin,
    a Zen expression meaning the mind without mind or “no-mindness”. It ....

    Krav Maga Detroit Crew Participates in the First Ever Goruck Constellation

    On April 21, 2017 a few of Krav Maga Detroit students and instructors took part in the very first official GORUCK CONSTELLATION , an overnight urban survival event run by the expert GORUCK Special Forces Cadre. As with other GORUCK events, Constellation 001 was expertly run by some of America’s best. Well over 100 weirdos showed up to kick it off and we all learned a ton and had a blast “operating” in Detroit throughout the night. The knowledge and experience gained in this event is priceless and I’m sure we all hope we will never have to use it, but as the saying goes, it’s “better to have, and not need, than to need, and not have.” Since we ....

  •  in Troy - Krav Maga Detroit - Olympic Lifting Seminar

    Olympic Lifting Seminar

    This workshop is a hands on introduction to the two Olympic lifts; the snatch and the clean and jerk. The goal of this workshop is to safely, effectively, and efficiently learn the basics to executive the two lifts. Explosive power is the dominating trait of successfully executing self defense techniques and combatives especially in a short period of time. While Olympic lifting does not mimic specific combat movements it has been shown to increase movement velocity and rate of force development and thus the ability to produce the greatest force possible in the shortest amount of time. The transfer to sport and self defense is apparent; hit faster, hit harder. While Olympic lifting ....
