KRAV MAGA IS WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT. When it comes to learning how to defend yourself against real-world violence, the material to be covered is endless. Before techniques are practiced under stress, they are broken down into steps that are simple to follow. As training progresses, conditions intensify & the challenging begins. This dynamic format simulates the most realistic way to practice techniques against real-time threats and involve FULL CONTACT. Krav Maga classes include elements of MMA training & fighting sports, (Boxing, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Karate, hand-to-hand combat, grappling, wrestling, close quarters combat, knife fighting, stick fighting & other Tactical Martial Arts techniques), Put simply, the best way to understand what a Krav Maga class is like at Combat Works, is to come & EXPERIENCE IT for yourself.

SPARRING is a method of free-form, full contact fighting with a controlled level of power & speed. You can’t teach a self defense system that means, “CONTACT COMBAT,” without sparring. A CRUCIAL skill for combative self defense, it’s one of the hardest to acquire. This is where you forge your skills. While it IS covered in regular Krav Maga classes, the more exposure-time one has on the mat to practice, the better! These sessions work through boxing elements (punching, kicking), blocking & footwork combinations, conditioning to being hit, exposure to the intensity of attacks, & dealing with the adrenaline that comes with it. Needless to say, this class is as mental as it is physical. *No previous experience required, participation open to Combat Works Members ONLY.
KNIFE WORK addresses one of the most DIFFICULT TYPES of VIOLENCE we train to defend against in Krav Maga. Learning Knife Defense techniques include those against KNIFE ATTACKS (stabs, slashes & hacks) & KNIFE THREATS (hold-ups with a knife, robberies, & other threats within close range). The potential danger posed by a knife means that techniques can NEVER BE TRAINED ENOUGH! Our weekly Krav Maga classes DO work on knife defense regularly as well. KNIFE WORK provides more training time, targeting specific techniques to drill intensely for an extra half hour. *No previous experience required, participation open to Combat Works Members ONLY.
SPECIALIZED WORKSHOPS are our FAVORITE WAY to TRAIN KRAV…THE WAY it’s MEANT TO BE DRILLED!

Plain & simple, the more you train, the higher your chances are for surviving an attack. Workshops cover everything from defense against Pistol & Long-Arms, Knife Attacks & Threats, Bat, Baton & Blunt Objects, Home Invasion, Terrorist Attacks, Active Shooter Scenarios, Improvised Weapons, Close Quarters, Multiple Attackers, &…well…you get picture.
