Krav Maga Frequently Asked Questions
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is the best method of self defense that now has expanded from the Israeli Military by the creator and founder Imi Lichtenfeld to military and police forces throughout the world and even to civilians and kids now.
Who can do Krav Maga?
Anyone ages 4-99 is fully capable of learning Krav Maga. Whether you’re in shape, have disabilities, or injured, you can still learn Krav Maga! How? Because the goal of Krav Maga is to train you to be able to defend yourself in a real life situation in imperfect circumstances and ensure that you survive without hurting yourself in the process.
How long are classes?
Classes are generally an hour to an hour and a half long each.
How long until I become proficient at Krav Maga?
The answer to this is complicated. We have to define proficient first. If you want to know simple, effective methods, you could learn how within a few months. However, if you want to be able to respond to nearly every situation that could happen to you, and then be able to react appropriately, then expect to spend at least a year, if not several. You will learn something valuable every class!
Do you use a belt system?
No. Rather than the traditional belt system used by many martial arts systems we do not use a belt system. Krav Maga is not a martial art, but a self defense school and instead uses a patch system that you can see below.
