  • Reopening Guidelines and Measures

    IN-PERSON CLASSES RESTARTING MONDAY MAY 11th
    The State and County have agreed to ease restrictions to an Orange or Moderate-Risk level and are allowing certain businesses to open on a limited level and aFKM we have been busy planning a return to training in the gym. As we move forward know that we are taking many precautions to ensure the safety of our members and their families as well as society as a whole, and we plan to adjust our training methodology, class times, degree of contact, and more as needed to maintain everyone's safety. Please keep in mind this is a very fluid situation and things can change quickly, as we've seen, so we ask for your patience as we move forward. ....

  • COVID-19 Virus Update

    To all of our Fortified Krav Maga Family: After much deliberation and discussion, we have decided to close and cancel ALL classes starting Tomorrow March 16th until Saturday March 21st. At that point we will re-evaluate the situation and decide whether to close for a longer duration. This is the hardest decision I have ever had to make as the leader of our gym. I did not make this decision unilaterally. As a group our primary focus always has been student safety. We are fortu nate to have so many doctors, scientists and professors as students and friends who have all also advised us to close until the situation is contained and we feel that it is safe for everyone to return to the mats. ....

  • My Thoughts on Weapon Defenses

    Defending weapons is a huge part of Krav Maga. I've always said Krav Maga is like Mixed Martial Arts with no rules and weapons. As fun as it is to train defending weapons, it should not be taken lightly. Here are some of my thoughts on the subject. 1.

This particular position is terrible and I would never willingly put myself there willingly like in the training video. I will stand and fight. 4. I understand a ....

    Is Krav Maga for Kids?

    “Is Krav Maga for Kids?” It’s a common question I receive from parents. If you search Krav Maga on the internet you will find videos of intense training scenarios, instructors explaining the importance of aggression while fighting, and violent techniques. Which begs the question “Is Krav Maga for Kids?” The short answer is yes, but it isn’t taught the same for children as it is for adults. Let me explain. First we need to define what Krav Maga is and how it’s different from other martial arts. Krav Maga was the official fighting system of the Israeli Military. Everything we do in Krav Maga is focused on self-defense. Some systems ....

  • Is Your Self-Defense Training a "Junk Food Diet?"

    Is Your Self-Defense Training a "Junk Food Diet?"

    Is your Self-Defense Training a “Junk Food Diet?” Several years back I was having lunch with a friend and associate of mine. We discussed what the priorities are when it comes to self-defense and talked about listing those priorities in “Food Pyramid” form, so to speak. I wanted to take a minute to go over what I think the priorities of self-defense are. First we need to discuss what self-defense is. The definition is “ the defense of one's person or interests, especially through the use of physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of violent crime.” I would take it one step further and say that self-defense is ....
