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 interpret the situation' appropriately. It reminds you of what's important and what you are fighting for.


Your life?

Your Family?


You have to be in it to win it. Some of our favorite ways to promote the correct mindset is through some quotes like "Do whatever you have to do to get home safe", "Make them pay for ever thinking it was okay to put their hands on you", "attack the attack" and lastly "You have to be just as aggressive, if not more aggressive than your attacker"!


If you ever find yourself in that situation, you need to be ready to go. There is no time for hesitation, no second-guessing. Training your body and your mind so one may walk in peace!
