On Sunday, February 20, a group of folks that attend the HUB, attended a self-defense course at the Krav Maga Worldwide center here in Fishers, Indiana. For those of you unfamiliar with Krav Maga, it is the hand to hand defense training that the Israeli Defense Force use in Israel today. Krav Maga is an aggressive form of self defense that is easy to learn yet highly effective. Krav Maga emphasizes instinctive movement, practical techniques and realistic training scenarios. The goal is for people to get in shape and Go Home Safe!
Krav is a very realistic, effective form of self-defense. And one 3 hour class does not in any way make you a pro. I think each of us took away something different and maybe feel a tad empowered to defend ourselves in some way. Krav, along with all other self-defense programs, works best to join and practice regularly to create a muscle memory or instinctive reaction to a real life attack.
The facility here in Indy is the only official Krav Maga Worldwide training center in all of Indiana. Not only do they teach the Krav Maga self-defense classes, they offer fitness classes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Weapon and Fight classes. If you live in the area, I highly recommend considering signing up for classes to strengthen your skills and confidence in self protective as well as getting more physically fit. If there is no Krav Maga center near you, check into other types of self-defense training and learn ways to GO HOME SAFE!
