Situational Awareness Situational Awareness


Our student Amy Horn shares a conversation she had with her friend Mike who's a police officer in Miami.

They discussed various street incidents he had been called to and she asked if any of these situations could have been prevented or if the severity of the attacks could have been minimized.

Mike's answer "Yeah-situational awareness."

This article discusses the following:
  • What situational awareness is.
  • Two types of situational awareness (subconscious and conscious).
  • Two main things to look for when using situational awareness.
  • How situational awareness applies to Krav Maga.
  • An incident Amy was in where she successfully used both situational awareness and Krav Maga.

"Use of Force" law has applications in both in civil and criminal contexts.

We Only Seek Advise After Failure We Only Seek Advise After Failure

In 1964, the day after Lyndon Johnson's landslide victory in the 1964 U.S. Presidential election, a cartoon ran that to this day teaches us something about advice.

The cartoon, drawn by two-time Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist, Bill Mauldin (October, 29, 1921 - January 22, 2003) showed Johnson's opponent Barry Goldwater writing a letter. The caption read, "Dear Abby".

The lesson: It is too often only after we experience failure that we seek advice...

Viewing a Crime in Progress Viewing a Crime in Progress

How to Help Safely!

Someone sent me a video clip of a segment from the TODAY show called "Protecting Your Kids." The clip showed several simulated abduction scenarios in which a security specialist played the role of a child abductor and a seven-year old girl posed as the potential abductee. The purpose of the staged scenarios, which took place in broad daylight on a heavily-trafficked New York City street, was to see if people passing by would take action, and if so, what action...

Krav Maga Worldwide Fitness Top Ten Threats to Men and Women

Krav Maga training is a good workout! Students come to learn to protect themselves but also get in shape due to the training drills and exercises in a Krav Maga class. We teach Levels 1-5 of the Krav Maga Worldwide(TM) curriculum. The physical activities in each level is progressive. Level 1 classes are designed for beginners to start getting in shape, regardless of the fitness level they start with. However, the higher the level, the more physically challenging the training and testings become. The more physically fit a person is the more capable they are of defending and dealing with the stress and exhaustion of an actual attack.

A consistent exercise program and awareness training, like our Krav Maga classes, will help prevent the Top Ten Health Threats to Women in the United States listed below...

"My name is I.G. and I am a 10 years veteran Federal Law Enforcement Agent. Currently I am a second level student in the Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Beach. After a few close calls on the job, I began to look for Krav Maga classes. I was looking for a place where the instructors really care about their students and did not put business profit above the integrity of this honored self-defense technique.

I am so happy that I found Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Beach because it combines a family environment, strict regiment of tactical techniques and instructors that really care about us and our learning process. Randall, Glenda, and the rest of the instructors share a great deal of knowledge and made me feel part of a family from day one. From a Law Enforcement stand point, Krav Maga has taken my confidence to work the streets to new levels. I am so pleased with them that I am bringing the rest of my family to Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Beach so they can walk the streets safely too.

I recommend Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Beach not just to the community but to any Law Enforcement Officer that wants to have an extra tool in their bag and increase their chances of facing a close contact challenge in a successful manner. I also recommend Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Beach to young ladies, so they can learn how to defend themselves from close contact attacks and do not become victims of predators.

Thanks Randall and Glenda"

""For me, Krav Maga has been a great experience. I like Krav Maga because it's realistic and a powerful way of fighting."

-Gabby

"I always wanted my kids to be able to defend themselves, and enrolled them at a very early age in Tae Kwon Do, Gabby excelled and received her Black Belt before the age of 12. I noticed along the way I didnt think the training she was receiving would translate in a real world situation, or God forbid an attack by a bigger or stronger opponent. She also lost interest quickly and after getting her Black Belt asked if she could stop going. Enter Krav Maga. I first stumbled across it online while researching self defense techniques. I found Krav Maga worldwide Pompano beach and went to see a class. I immediately liked it for myself and thought I could get Gabby to attend with me. I thought if I was going with her, she would be more involved and dedicated. Well its been a fantastic experience to date. Not only do we both love the way Randall teaches the techniques, no nonsense...all real, but its been a great way for my daughter and I to bond and spend quality time together. My favorite time of the week is the car ride home after class just her and I, talking about what we learned, and just everyday stuff. I highly recommend Krav Maga Worldwide, Pompano Beach for anyone interested in learning real world self defense techniques."

"My daughter & I trained with Koch's Martial Arts in Newport on the Oregon coast. We took Krav Maga and other self defense classes for several years. I felt the training was so valuable I had Koch Martial Arts do a class at my Real Estate Company . As President of the Board of Windermere, DCP I wanted my agents to have some self defense awareness. The agents were impressed with the training skills. I would recommend Koch's Martial Arts."
