LEVEL I OVERVIEW

No matter your age, fitness level or gender, begin by learning proper fighting stance and movement. Punches, elbows, kicks and knees will be learned and implemented into your training. You will also learn to defend against punches, chokes, headlocks and wrist-grabs. Krav Maga is physically demanding and will help you develop a strong core, increased endurance, heightened flexibility and soaring confidence.

There is no requirement for students to progress to level II. Your progress is completely dependent on your capabilities and interest. Train as hard and as safely as possible, 2-3 times per week for four months and you should expect to complete the Level I curriculum. At this point, you may qualify to test to proceed to Level II.
