Congratulations to Briana Kirchgessner, Jason Vlader, Brian Gjyli, Ethan Foster, Mariana Anzola, and Alex Lvovsky for passing their 3 hour Krav Maga Level 2 Orange Belt test this afternoon!

👀
Don’t assume bad guys will only attack you at night. This attacked happened at 11am out in public in front of other people. Have good situational awareness at all times! The victim did the right thing by immediately fighting back!

January 5, 2022

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense stresses simultaneously defending and counterattacking aggressively as a means of fighting back and overcoming an assault.
👊🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense principles learned at the beginner levels are applicable through the most advanced levels of training, which helps bring students to a high level of proficiency in a short period of time.

RIP Betty White. You will be missed.

December 16, 2021

An important part of our Krav Maga self-defense and fighting program is including realistic training scenarios.
👊🏼
One of many Krav Maga system principles is to “analyze and use the environment as much as possible”.
🪑
In this video my Level 1 private lesson student Carl is practicing a defense against a Choke from the Front. After learning the defense out in our padded training room, I had him practice the defense in our lobby while being attacked over a table.
📹
In the past, I’ve had two students who have worked as bartenders tell me they have been attacked over the bar counter similar to this.

December 15, 2021

Krav Maga Ft. Lauderdale The Gray Man Shirt
Show your support of our Krav Maga Fort Lauderdale training center with this limited edition school shirt.
We’ve had students ask if we have any Krav Maga shirts with a more “subtle” look. So we designed “The Gray Man”.
👕
Free shipping worldwide! Pre-order by December 9. We will ship the shirt out to you in January 2022: https://www.kravmagatraining.com/…/krav-maga-ft…/

December 1, 2021

We did a brief lecture on what Krav Maga is and the “Survival Mindset”. Then we did a more detailed lecture on “Awareness and Avoidance”.
👀
We finished the class by teaching some combatives (striking techniques) such as punches, palm heel strikes, knee strikes, and eye gouges so the ladies who participated would have some basic skills they could use to fight back if they were attacked.
👊🏼
Thank you Talia Lerner for organizing the event! And thank you to Jennifer Penelope Henrietta Kenny for demonstrating all the combatives and giving all the participants a good example of how to perform the techniques correctly and aggressively!
🙏🏼
Hopefully, we’ll be back in the spring to do another class!

November 24, 2021

We’ll be open all Thanksgiving week except for Thursday, November 25.
🦃
It is our training center’s traditional to have extra hard workouts on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving. This way you can overeat guilt free on Thanksgiving Day and then train hard that weekend to burn off all the calories!
🍽
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thank you Mariana Anzola for giving our Krav Maga training center its latest review!

November 16, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense stresses aggressive, no holds barred, counterattacking. We develop the mindset that stopping the ongoing attack is the quickest way to make yourself safe so we train to take the fight to the attacker.
💪🏻
This concept holds true and is reinforced in all levels of Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training from defenses against chokes and grabs to defenses involving weapons. If you are assaulted you cannot simply defend, you have to counterattack aggressively, neutralize the attacker, and go home safe.
💯
Our mission is to empower every person with real skills to make them safer and stronger so they may walk in peace.

November 11, 2021

This is my 20th year being certified as an instructor through Krav Maga Worldwide.
I’m fortunate to have a career that I enjoy and that allows me to be my own boss while helping my community feel more confident, safe, and get in better shape through practical and effective self-defense training.

We forgot to take a picture of these guys after their test. So, JJ, with his excellent Photoshop skills and knowing these students all have a good sense of humor, decided to create this picture using the photo of Veronika, Gene, Mariana, and Victor‘s bodies from their Level 1 test photo. 😄🤣

Full contact fight classes at Krav Maga Worldwide give you the chance to work on your skills against resisting opponents in drills and sparring.
👊🏻
All of the classes in our self-defense, fitness, and fight programs are designed to help you become stronger and safer. Fight classes are often considered the most challenging because they are full contact. Testing yourself against a resisting opponent is a unique challenge that helps students understand how to improve.

Thank you to Nathan Casiello for giving our training center our latest Google review!

October 25, 2021

In a self-defense situation we don’t want a prolonged ground fight. We teach students to fight to an advantageous position, do damage to the opponent, and get out. Many of our instructors are accomplished, high-level, grapplers and ground fighting is an important part of training here.

Congratulations to Ethan Foster and Nathan Casiello who both passed our Krav Maga Level 1 Yellow Belt test tonight!

October 22, 2021

An important Krav Maga system principle is that training must include the stress experienced in real attacks.
👊
One of many ways we implement this training principle is to practice in low-light/night time conditions since it’s common for assaults to happen when it’s dark.
🌙
Last night in our Level 1 (beginner) class our students learned how to defend against a Choke from Behind with a Push. After training all the combatives (striking) techniques on pads and then putting them together with a partner to create an effective defense against this attack, we finished the class by training the defense with the lights off against random classmates.

October 20, 2021

Congratulations to Cliff Hindrichs, Federico Farber, and Anthony Manganaro who were all awarded their Krav Maga Yellow Belt diplomas for passing our Level 1 test on September 4!

October 19, 2021

Whether you are big or small, male or female, young or old, you can use Krav Maga to protect yourself. Almost all members of a family can learn Krav Maga to be safe.
💪🏽
This summer we had the privilege to train the Houser family: Kale and Liz with their two sons Kye and Shea. For two weeks they trained Krav Maga twice a day, six days a week to learn our entire Level 1 (beginner) curriculum. They would do semi-private lessons for just their family in the mornings and then come back to train in our group classes in the evenings.
🗓
The Houser family travels all over the world for Kale’s work. Kale wants his family to be as prepared as possible if something were to endanger their safety. He chose for his family to visit South Florida for two weeks with the specific intent of his family learning Krav Maga at our training center.
🌎
Kale could have chose any Krav Maga or self-defense program in the world for his family to learn from but he specifically chose our program. We are honored he chose us! We respect the hard work the family put into their training. And if his family is ever back in South Florida we would love to work with them again!

October 12, 2021

There are no rules in an assault or life threatening situation so our system was designed with no rule-set in mind. Do whatever it takes to go home safe is our mentality
💯
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training will give you the skills and the mentality to fight back and win in the worst case scenario. We put ourselves in bad situations, like dealing with armed attackers, so that we have a skill-set that has been trained on repeatedly while under stress.
💪🏻
Self-defense training at a Krav Maga Worldwide certified training center will build your fighting skills and self-defense mentality so that you may walk in peace.

Congratulations to Laura Andrews who was awarded her Krav Maga Orange Belt diploma for passing our Level 2 test on August 21!
💪
The next time you see Laura at our training center be sure to congratulate her and ask her how old she is. If Laura can pass the Level 2 test at her age then there are no excuses for rest of us to not be training and improving!
💯
Be sure to zoom in the picture and see how Laura’s name is printed on her diploma. JJ asked her how she wanted her name printed on her diploma. She said she didn’t care and we could put whatever we want on it. Being the smart-ass instructors we are, we ordered two diplomas for her: One with her real name on it and the one shown in the picture. Laura said she likes the one in this picture better! 😄🤣

Congratulations to Greg Anderson and Ana Solorio who were both awarded their Krav Maga Green Belt diplomas last Saturday for passing their Level 3 test on July 24.

September 16, 2021

We train on groin strikes, throat strikes, eye gouges, and other techniques that would be considered “dirty” or a foul in a sanctioned sport fight because Krav Maga was not created with competition in mind.
💯
It was created to train people who would be fighting for their lives. That’s the mentality we have in our self-defense classes at Krav Maga Worldwide. Do whatever it takes to damage the attacker, get away, and go home safe.
👍🏻
Of course, we offer sport-fighting training in boxing, kickboxing, mma, and jiu-jitsu as well because live sparring on the feet and on the ground is the best practice for building your skill-set. Most of our students however aren’t training for a sanctioned sport fight, they are training to stay ready to fight for their lives, and that’s the mentality (and abilities) that Krav Maga self-defense classes will build in you.

Happy first birthday to our training center mascot Shadow!
🐈
We found her in the bushes in front of our old training center the week of Halloween last year. An all black kitty right before Halloween?! It was meant to be!
🐈‍⬛
After we found her we took her to the veterinarian and they said she was 6 weeks old and put her birthdate down on her records as September 15. So, happy birthday Shadow!
🎂
She has grown a lot since we first got her!

Thank you to Briana Kirchgessner for giving us our newest Google review!

September 8, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training deals with real world threats like attackers armed with guns, knives, or blunt objects.
💯
Krav Maga weapons defenses use instinctive movements to defend and counterattack simultaneously, and stress graining control of a weapon before attempting to take it away.
💪🏻
Drilling on these techniques is intense. It’s scary to consider what is out there but it’s training with us that will make the difference if you find yourself in this sort of life-threatening situation.
👊🏻
We don’t want any of our students to get into a physical altercation of any kind…but if they do, we want them to defend themselves and get home safe.

June 24, 2021

Whether you are comfortable being on the ground and fighting or not, you should be training on the fundamentals of what happens when you hit the ground in a fight.
👊🏻
It doesn’t make sense to only train from superior or dominant positions in a ground fight. You have to know what to do if you find yourself in a spot that you don’t want to be in. Krav Maga Worldwide training will give you the skills and mindset to fight back, win, and go home safe.

We’re lucky enough to have just a few of these pics. Krav Maga Worldwide Chief Instructor Darren Levine training with the creator of Krav Maga, Imi Lichtenfeld.
💯
It’s cool to revisit these pictures every once in a while for a couple of reasons. The first is that it’s Imi and Darren. The second is to show that Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training comes directly from the original source of Krav Maga.
👍🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide certified training centers teach self-defense as it was meant to be taught. Darren received his black belt from Imi himself. Our training and our mission come from Imi Lichtenfeld himself.
💪🏻
Imi tasked Darren with spreading Krav Maga to the rest of the world so that every person could be empowered with the skills they need to defend themselves and walk in peace.

Our former student Doug Innocent stopped by our training center yesterday. We were finally able to award him his Orange Belt diploma from his Level 2 test in 2019. Since he moved to Miami a couple of years ago it’s been hard for him to continue his training with us.
Doug and his buddies came in to record some Krav Maga techniques for a video project he’s working on that has the theme of movement. They recorded Krav Maga techniques that have similar movements to other physical activities.
It was good to see you again Doug!

If you’re like most people, your day-to-day life can be stressful at times. Our Krav Maga training will help you “Stay Calm Under Stress.”
😤
First, Krav Maga training is an intense workout! Any type of exercise will help you relieve stress from your life.
💪🏽
However, Krav Maga training also involves a lot of striking drills. Every time you strike a pad with a punch, elbow, kick, or knee it gives you a constructive way to release that pent up frustration you may experience in your life. When you are stressed out nothing will feel better than hitting something, and hitting it hard!
👊
But what makes our Krav Maga training classes and lessons unique is our emphasis on “replicating reality” (without sacrificing safety). In our self-defense classes you will be put under stress. You will learn how to deal with real-life attacks such as being hit, choked, pinned to the ground, attacked with a weapon, etc. You will learn to perform these defenses while dealing with stresses such as fatigue, distraction, and adrenaline.
💯
Last week I was teaching a private lesson for Rick and he was explaining how he remained calm during a stressful meeting at his work and how Krav Maga helped him with that. After dealing with fellow students trying to punch, kick, choke, and tackle him to the ground he said dealing with stressful things at work didn’t seem like such a big deal in comparison.

Yesterday I had a conversation with a potential student who contacted us for information. I asked her what interest her about our Krav Maga self-defense program. She said “I am South African and I live in fear of being attacked and most of all raped. I love to travel and travel by myself often but my fear is holding me back in life.”
I explained to her that our Krav Maga classes will teach her how to protect herself against a variety of threats and violent attacks that may occur in modern society such as street crimes, common battery, robbery, car jackings, sexual assaults, etc. By learning these skills she will not only learn to protect herself but, just as important, feel more confident and feel less fear.
She scheduled a trial class and is looking forward to feeling more empowered and safe.
One the main reasons why Imi Lichtenfeld created Krav Maga is “so one may walk in peace.”
Feel less fear. Have more peace in your life. Start training with us today! First class or lesson is free so you can try it out first before having to sign-up.

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense is a principal based system that is designed to keep things simple. Techniques are easy to learn and to recall under stress.
💯
When dealing with a firearm threat or making a firearm defense our system prioritizes getting out of the line of fire and staying out of the line of fire. As such, defenses against firearms start with redirecting the line of fire, giving the defender an opportunity to counterattack and, ultimately, take the weapon away.
👍🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide’s mission is to give everyone the skills to be safer and stronger.

Good self-defense rests on three pillars: situational awareness, verbal de-escalation, and the hands-on act of defending yourself.
👊🏻
Thank you to the Krav Maga Worldwide affiliate in Houston for sharing this!

Krav Maga Worldwide training deals with fighting back in the worst of situations. Dealing with weapons is about as scary as it gets. If don’t you train tactics and develop a set of skills to use in a life-threatening situation you won’t have a chance to act when you need to.
👊🏻
Training with us will get you in the best shape of your life. It will make you stronger, leaner, healthier. It will also give you the tactics and skills you need to fight back and win if your life is on the line.

“I started as a complete beginner with no experience in KravMaga. Randall is a fantastic instructor who is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cares about his students and the quality of the teaching that he provides. The lessons are invaluable in today’s environment, a great way to stay fit and a lot of fun. If you’re thinking about KravMaga, you can’t go wrong with a professional life Randall.”

“Fort Lauderdale ranked 179th in ‘home and community safety,’ which is measured by metrics like presence of law enforcement, average COVID-19 cases in seven days and the number of aggravated assaults.”

March 4, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense stresses aggressive counterattacking. We develop the mindset that stopping the ongoing attack is the quickest way to make yourself safe so we train to take the fight to the attacker.
💪🏻
This concept holds true and is reinforced in all levels of Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training from defenses against chokes and grabs to defenses involving weapons. If you are assaulted you cannot simply defend, you have to counterattack aggressively, neutralize the attacker, and get out of the situation.
💯
Our mission is to empower every person with real skills to make them safer and stronger so they may walk in peace.

💯
We don’t want anyone who trains with us to get in a fight, or find themselves in a situation where they have to fight for their lives…but if they do, we want them to win and go home safe.

Samantha Pollio and Heidi Weidman were awarded their Krav Maga Yellow Belt diplomas last night for passing the Level 1 test on January 16. Congratulations you two!

February 22, 2021

A common question we get is if we have classes for beginners.

A beginner might be afraid that they can’t keep up in class or may feel intimated training with more experienced and skilled students.

Yes, we do have classes just for beginners! This is called our Level 1 class.

This entry level class introduces basic strikes such as straight punches, elbows, front kicks, and knees – the meat and potatoes of a street fight. You’ll also learn how to deal with common chokes and headlocks.

These techniques offer a clear representation of the principles of Krav Maga – ideas such as explosive movements, instinct-based responses and simultaneous defense-and-counterattack.

Even though we don’t wear belts, our Krav Maga curriculum has a belt system. Students start as White Belts and once they graduate the Level 1 curriculum they become Yellow Belts.

Learn more about our Level 1 curriculum at https://www.kravmagatraining.com/services/level-1/

Our training center kitty Shadow doesn’t understand that this is not what we mean by White Belt training. 

 

February 16, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training teaches students to fight back and do damage to the person who would damage you or others.
💯
In worst case scenarios like facing an armed attacker, your safety might not be assured by running, hiding, or complying. Fighting back means attacking the attacker explosively and aggressively so that we do enough damage to neutralize that person and get away.
💪🏻

Richard Bresler was Rorion Gracie‘s first student in LA, and is widely recognized as the first student of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the USA.
Richard has been been an invaluable part of the Krav Maga Worldwide instructor team at our HQ Training Centers in Los Angeles for over 20 years. His talent as an instructor has helped countless students learn to be safer and stronger. His technical expertise has helped shape the Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense ground fighting curriculum. In short, we’re lucky to have him as part of our team.
His new memoir, “Worth Defending”, chronicles his over 40 years’ involvement with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, including the almost twenty years he spent working closely alongside Rorion Gracie to grow Jiu-Jitsu through the Gracie Garages, the Gracie Academy, and the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
“Worth Defending” includes never-before-published photos from behind the scenes at the first UFC, as well as stories from the early “challenge match” days at the first “Gracie Garage”—in the house that Richard and Rorion shared—and the Gracie Academy. Read the story of the birth of modern MMA from someone who was there every step of the way!
Richard is a truly awesome person and his story is incredibly unique. Check out “Worth Defending” for yourself and grab an extra copy as a holiday gift for a friend or loved one!

Principles of Krav Maga:
1️⃣ Address the Danger
2️⃣ Counter-Attack
3️⃣ Control and Finish
We often arrive at the control position by using the hand, wrist, and forearm to make contact with the attacker and throw knees. While it is possible that the attack will end there, nothing is guaranteed. That’s why we also train movement at the control position from a resisting opponent.

Krav Maga Worldwide Chief Instructor Darren Levine earned his black belt from Imi Lichtenfeld, the man who created and developed Krav Maga for the Israel Defense Forces.
💪🏻
Imi’s vision was that every person, not just soldiers, should learn Krav Maga so they were empowered with the skills to defend themselves and able to “walk in peace”. Imi tasked Darren with helping him make this vision a reality.
👍🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide’s mission at every certified training center is true to Imi’s vision. We’re about making people stronger so they can be safer. We’re about empowering every person with real, effective, self-defense skills.

How To Krav Maga.  😄

February 3, 2021

Our Krav Maga self-defense and fighting program is designed for both men and women.
However, we occasionally get asked if we have programs designed specifically for women.
Yes, we do!
Krav Maga Worldwide Women’s Self-Defense Course: a course specifically designed to address the epidemic of violence against women.
The Women’s Self-Defense course aims to build confidence in women, teach them to avoid potentially dangerous situations, and educate them on how to fight back in the event of an assault.
The course includes four detailed lessons:
– Krav Maga and the Survival Mindset
– Awareness and Avoidance
– Boundaries
– Fighting Back
All of these lessons work together toward the ultimate goal of teaching women how to keep themselves safe.

February 2, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training is about more than just learning to fight. It’s about survival. It’s about knowing what to do, and having the skills to do what you need to, when you absolutely must take action to defend your life or the life of a loved one.
💪🏻
We train for situations like abduction, car-jacking, active shooter events, third party defense, and many more because they’re real, they’re scary, and we want our students to know what to do if they find themselves in the worst of circumstances.
💯
If you don’t train on these sorts of real-world, scary, situations you simply won’t have the skills or tactical knowledge you need to prevail if your life is on the line.
🤷🏻‍♂️
Know what to do so you can fight back and win. Start training with us today.

Pluck defenses are a good introductory technique to Krav Maga because they illustrate so many of Krav Maga’s core principles:
-Instinctual Movement 👀 : Your instinctual response to a choke is to bring your hands towards your throat.
-Effective for Everyone 🧒🧓🧑: Because plucks use ⚡️speed⚡️ and ⚖️ leverage ⚖️ to attack at the weakest part of the choke, anyone can pluck.
-Easy to learn 📝 : You can learn how to capably pluck in less than an hour.
-Practical 💪 : Chokes are a common attack making plucking an essential tool in your self-defense toolbox 🧰

January 25, 2021

Overcoming challenges in the training rooms will give you the ability to overcome challenges in your every day life.
💯
We push each other to get better. We push each other to develop awareness, confidence, and relentlessness so there’s no quitting when circumstances are difficult or uncomfortable. These are all skills that students take with them when training is over and they go home.
👍🏻
Our mission is to give people real skills to make them safer and stronger. That means both physically and mentally.

Do you want this shirt? $30 cash money. Pre-orders from now until February 5. Talk to Randall or JJ. Don’t miss out! Last chance before this design is retired. Maybe. Possibly. We’ll see.

January 19, 2021

Identify the danger. Use your body’s natural reaction. Simultaneously defend and counterattack aggressively.
💯
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense is a principle based system that teaches people to become proficient in hand-to-hand combat in a short period of time. As a self-defense system we do not consider that we are initiating a fight or conflict. In order to end a fight or an assault you must counterattack aggressively and do damage to the person who would do damage to you so you can go home safe.
👍🏻
We don’t want any of our students, from any of our certified training centers around the world, to be in a situation where they must defend themselves….but if they are in that situation we want them to win. Our mission is to give people real skills that will make them safer and stronger.

…and sometimes you’re the nail. We’ve all probably felt a bit more like the nail last year. That’s the challenge. That’s the motivation. How will you know what you are really made of unless you’ve given all that you can?

One of the most difficult aspects of the defense against Bearhug from Behind with a Lift for new Level 3 students is accurately landing the Uppercut Back Kick on the attacker’s groin. This Student Section video explains the correct trajectory for this kick and how to properly train it on pads, shields, bags, etc.

September 24, 2020

We’re not exactly sure where or when this term originated but a front kick to the groin is often referred to as a “Krav Maga Handshake”.
🤷🏻‍♂️
Front kick to the groin is one of the first techniques taught in Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense Level 1. It’s a staple in our system because nobody can condition their groin against taking damage and a kick to the goin is always going to have an effect on an attacker if it lands.
💯
We teach things like groin strikes, eye gouges, throat strikes, and other techniques that would be considered illegal in a sanctioned sport fight. Our philosophy is that nothing is dirty or illegal if it means winning a fight for your life and going home safe.
👍🏻
Training at a Krav Maga Worldwide certified training center has changed the lives of many people….its also saved the lives of many people. Start training with us today.

Our Krav Maga Fitness program integrates a lot of workouts that are specific and functional to our Self Defense and Fighting training.

The workout that is used most often by our students is the Bas Rutten Mixed Martial Arts Workouts.

In regards to Bas’ boxing workout, a common question is what’s the difference when Bas calls out “4” and “3 plus a Right Straight“. This video demonstrates and explains the difference between the two combinations.

September 9, 2020

Congratulations to Steve Servidio for passing his Krav Maga Level 1 (Yellow Belt) test this afternoon!

1. Functional Warm-Up
2. Body and Injury Evaluation
3. Avoid Bad Habits
4. Make Effective Corrections

August 27, 2020

We train hard, stay ready, and know how to fight back and win in a life-threatening situation.
🔥
If you don’t train to defend against the worst case scenario, like dealing with an armed attacker, how will you know what to do if you ever find yourself in that situation?
🤷🏻‍♂️
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense is about training to fight back and win against real-world dangers. We don’t want anyone in our KMW community to find themselves in a life-threatening situation…bit if they do, we want them to fight back, win, and go home safe.

Walking in peace is the ultimate goal of Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training. That’s what we want for everyone.

Congratulations to Blake Boginsky for passing the Krav Maga Level 1 (Yellow Belt) test this afternoon!

Blake has been taking three lessons a week all summer, as well as practicing on his own, to be proficient enough to pass the Level 1 test.

In our Krav Maga program the youngest we’ll accept a student is 12 years old as long as they are both mentally and physically mature enough to handle the aggressive type of training we do.

Blake just turned 13 last week. He is the youngest student I’ve ever promoted in my 19 years of teaching Krav Maga!

To be honest, 12 and 13 year old students are my least favorite students to teach. They generally don’t put forth much effort, have sloppy techniques, and don’t have a true appreciation of the self-defense and fighting skills they are learning.

But not Blake! He almost always worked hard and showed good focus during his lessons. When I would give him a correction, he would actually implement it. When I would tell him what he needed to practice on in order to improve, he would come back the next lesson showing those improvements. It was obvious to me that he actually put in the work on his own because he always showed improvement when he returned to his next lesson.

His dad Ed signed him up to make sure he wouldn’t be a victim of bullying in school. When they first started he told me how some of the kids at Blake’s school were bigger then he is as an adult! To best prepare Blake for this, he served as his training partner during the lessons. And neither Ed or I went easy on Blake! We worked him hard including many different live self-defense and sparring drills to simulate real fights.

I’m proud of what both Blake and Ed accomplished this summer! They will continue on to Level 2 training during the school year.

Tomorrow we’re going to publish our first video that’s in 4K resolution. However, we’ll see if YouTube actually will give the option to view them in 4K after they our published.🤞🏽

Besides being in 4K resolution, future videos will have a shorter intro and ending so you can watch multiple videos on playlists more efficiently.

Tomorrow’s video is titled Krav Maga – Bearhug from the Front with a Lift (Arms Free Neck Leverage Variation).

August 19, 2020

If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way to get it done. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse not to do it.
💯
There’s nothing more important to each and every Krav Maga Worldwide certified training center than empowering people with the skills they need to be stronger and safer.
💪🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide certified training centers are striving every day, overcoming all sorts of different challenges, to continue to spread the vision that Imi Lichtenfeld had for Krav Maga when he entrusted our Chief Instructor Darren Levine with bringing the system to the world.
👊🏻
Imi wanted every person to be able to walk in peace and that vision is evident in the endurance and effort that Krav Maga Worldwide certified training centers show every day.

I just read this very detailed and informative article titled “Self-defence against knife attacks, evidenced based approach.”  I would recommend all Level 4 and above students, and anyone else with an interest in surviving a knife attack, read this article:

August 14, 2020

In this Krav Maga Fundamentals video we demonstrate the two ways to fix almost all balance issues regardless of the technique you’re performing:

1. Place your feet wider (widen your base).
2. Bend your knees (lower your center of gravity).

August 13, 2020

Tomorrow I’m going to publish the first video to a new playlist or series titled “Krav Maga Fundamentals”.

Krav Maga Fundamentals videos will cover the principles and rules behind almost all techniques in the Krav Maga system and curriculum.

The first video is titled “How To Fix Almost All Balance Issues”.

August 12, 2020

If you hit the ground in a fight and the person you are fighting is still standing, know how to maintain a good position, make damage if possible, and get up. Work to improve your position while maximizing the weapons you have at your disposal.
💯
That’s a metaphor for some of the challenges that Krav Maga Worldwide certified training centers are facing right now. Training conditions aren’t ideal but there’s no stopping, there’s no quitting, there’s no let down in our dedication to bringing the best possible self-defense training to make people safer and stronger.
💪🏻
We often talk about the lessons we learn on the mat being applicable to facing challenges and problem solving in other aspects of our lives. This year has been a great example of that. No giving up. No let down. Fight your way out and survive.

The Krav Maga Worldwide community as a whole has really risen to the challenge of continuing to train and build the skills to be safer and stronger during a time when training conditions haven’t been ideal. All of our certified training centers, their instructors, staff, and members have been an amazing example of the idea that down is NOT out. Keep pushing hard. Walk in peace!

In this Student Section video we address the two most common questions from students in regards to the Inward Angle Knee (Level 3 technique):

1. Why would I use the Inward Angle Knee instead of the Round Knee (Level 1)?
2. How do I get more power in the Inward Angle Knee?

 

August 6, 2020

The videos are in the same order as listed in our curriculum binders.
 
We don’t yet have a video for every technique in the Level 4 curriculum.

 

August 5, 2020

As I told of my Level 3 students last night during their open gym time, I plan on making a lot more Level 3 videos in the near future.

 

August 4, 2020

For our Level 2 students, we now have a YouTube playlist just for them that matches our Level 2 curriculum: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlBPsLOBd690uINUAsqPI1ktaQh7lqAEa
Please note that we don’t yet have a video for every technique listed in the Level 2 curriculum.

 

August 3, 2020

We added a new Level 1 playlist to our YouTube channel. The playlist includes Level 1 techniques listed in the same order as our training center’s curriculum.
This way our new students can find the techniques they want easier: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlBPsLOBd69353W20zQgFk6SC_DuRFIOg

While performing the defense against a Back Mount – Choke from Behind while Mounted (Level 2 technique), smaller students have trouble getting to their knees against larger training partners to do the standard defense. In this video we show how to do a rotational defense which is a good backup technique for smaller students.

Know how to use your hands to make damage to anyone who would make damage to you.
💯
Here’s a look at some of the fundamental strikes that Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense teaches students in Level 1. We wrote an in-depth blog about fundamental striking with the hands a few months back. The link will be below if you want to learn more.
💪🏻
Basically students in Level 1 learn fundamental striking with the hands that includes straight punches, palm heel strikes, eye gouges, throat strikes, and hammerfists. Students learn how to utilize these strikes in all sorts of directions and learn to find high-value targets on opponents.
🔥
Some of these strikes would be considered illegal or a foul in a sanctioned sport fight…but Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense was created without consideration for rules or fair competition. We teach students to use whatever means necessary to fight back, win, and go home safe.

In this Krav Maga Student Section Self Defense video we discuss five common issues/questions that come up when performing the defense against a Hair Grab with Pull – Impending Knee Strike (Level 3 technique).

Congratulations to Vanessa Wildman for passing the Krav Maga Level 1 (Yellow Belt) test this morning.

She has been training 4-6 hours a week this summer to learn and be able to perform the Level 1 curriculum techniques while under stress.

Her excellent work ethic, natural ability, and mental toughness allowed her to complete and pass the Level 1 curriculum faster then just about any other student I have taught.

She will continue learning techniques from the Level 2 and above curriculum before heading off to Emory University in Atlanta next month. She is now more prepared to protect herself while away in college. She plans on continuing her Krav Maga training when she returns home during college breaks.

It has been a pleasure teaching you so far Vanessa! From everything I’ve seen when training you, you have a very bright future! -Randall

In order to be well-rounded in self-defense striking techniques, students must learn to fight from long range, mid range, and close range (standing and on the ground) and how to throw strikes from all ranges from different angles and in different directions.
💪🏻
The Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense system teaches students to use elbows in seven different directions in order to be effective at making damage against an attacker at close range. It’s one of the fundamental things that students learn in Level 1.
👊🏻
Our mission is to make people stronger and safer. Empowering people with skills to defend themselves in close range scenarios where many assaults happen is essential. When used correctly elbows can deliver fight-ending power and we want all of our students to have this skill so they can protect themselves and go home safe if they are assaulted.

From 1991-1994 I worked part-time, and from 1994-2009 full-time, as a Taekwondo instructor back in my hometown of Newport, Oregon.
I know longer teach Taekwondo because the majority of the techniques and concepts you learn in that style are not practical for self-defense and fighting like our Krav Maga curriculum is.,
 
However, one aspect of Taekwondo, and other traditional martial arts, that I miss teaching was the mental or character skills required to become a true martial artist and a success in life.
I was reminded of this a few years back when I reconnected with a former student through Facebook. His name is Michael and he started training under me in 1994 when he was 5 years old. I taught him over the next 6-7 year where he eventually earned his 1st degree black belt in Taekwondo.
What resonated with me was a message he sent thanking me for being his TKD instructor and that he still remembers to this day and uses many of the character skill lessons he learned in my classes.
That 5 year old is now 31 years old, engaged to his fiance and working as a biology teacher in Baltimore.
This is just one of many examples of former child students, who are all now adults, who have reconnected with me and mention it’s the character lessons they remember and still use to this day in their everyday life.
I still own the character skills curriculum book that I started using as an TKD instructor over 20 years ago. It’s in a massive 4″ binder, contains over 1,000 pages, weighs about 20 lbs., and is broken down into 18 separate character traits and 13 different leadership skills.
It’s these character traits and leadership skills that determine the success of a person in both their martial arts training and in life.
The first character trait is Confidence.
Over the next 2 months I’m going to share the adult version of these Confidence lessons that I use to teach my TKD students through our student only Facebook group.
As adults we already know what Confidence is and what many other character traits are and why they’re important. However, we all could use a reminder from time-to-time, especially when things get difficult with our Krav Maga training or our daily life.

July 6, 2020

It comes from you.
👊🏻
One of the first things that Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training teaches and instills in students is fighting spirit. The idea that you won’t stop. The idea that you won’t quit. The idea that you will keep fighting back if you are assaulted….and the ability to manifest that with your physical skills.
💪🏻
Really, though, the fighting spirit is yours. Krav Maga Worldwide training shows you where it is and how to use it. When students become able to tap into their fighting spirit and apply it in training, it’s a huge source of pride for instructors.💯
Don’t forget why you started training. Don’t stop pushing to get better. To get stronger and be safer.
💪🏻
Training conditions have changed for the time being but the world’s best self-defense system has not. Threats are still out there. Fighting spirit is still in you.

I’ve had several student ask me to record a video of myself doing the Level 2 warm-up drill that we often do at the beginning of class. They want to make sure they are doing it correctly when training on their own during open gym times at our training center or at home.

I just uploaded this video to our student only Facebook group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1967013023593395/

Now’s just a time when we’ll have to prove it more often.

All active students at our training center have free access to the Krav Maga Worldwide Kids Self-Defense program online training at www.KravMagaWorldwideAcademy.com.
I just watched the entire Kids Self-Defense program. I learned a couple new drills and technique details that I haven’t seen before.
 
For our students who are parents, I would suggest teaching your children these lessons. Not only will they be more prepared to deal with bullies, but you will also stay sharp on your own Krav Maga training. Many of the techniques taught in the kids program are similar to what is taught in the adult program.
The Kids Self-Defense program is over 85 minutes long and is divided into 5 sections:

These videos are available to download through our Facebook Active Students Only Group.  If you’re an active student you can request to join the group.
Here’s how you can practice your Level 1, 2 or 3 defenses against Straight Punches at home without a partner.
I created six videos you can use to practice your Straight Punch defenses:
  • Straight Punches with left hand only.
  • Straight Punches with right hand only.
  • Straight Punches alternating from left to right hand.
  • Straight Punches done randomly with left and right hand.
  • Left/Right Straight Punch combination (for Level 3 defenses)
  • Shows examples of how to use the videos to practice your defenses against Straight Punches.
Each video is about one minute long.
You can download each video and play them on whatever device you want.
I like to use VLC media player for the videos because they have a lot of useful features.
You can download this VLC media player for free: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
Here’s a list of training tips for these videos:
  • If your technique or timing is not quit right practice left or right hand only. Then move on to alternating from left to right hand before moving on to random attacks.
  • If your technique or timing is off you can slow down the video by right clicking the video in VLC media player, go to Playback, then Speed, then select Slower (fine) or Slower.
  • If the speed is to slow and you need more of a challenge, do step #2 but select Faster (fine) or Faster.
  • If you want to train your defenses against an opponent who stands in the Southpaw (right foot in front) Stance, go to the top menu and select Tools, Effects and Filters, Video Effects, Geometry, Transform, Flip horizontally. Detailed instructions: https://www.vlchelp.com/rotating-video-in-vlc-media-player/
  • To train for longer than 1 minute rounds, put the video to play on a loop. Click the loop button towards the bottom of VLC media player. Instructions: https://videoconverter.wondershare.com/vlc/loop-videos-using-vlc.html
In the near future, I’ll come up with more videos for practicing defenses against other punches and kicks.

Krav Maga – Full Nelson: Leverage The Fingers (Importance of Pinching Your Elbows)

In this Self-Defense Student Section video we go over the following reasons why pinching your elbows to your ribs while performing the Defense against a Full Nelson: Leveraging the Fingers (Level 3 technique) is important:

1. Preventing the Full Nelson from being fully locked in the first place. (Position of Prevention).
2. Preventing the Full Nelson from being re-applied after you Leverage the Fingers.
3. Making the actual escape from the Full Nelson and transition to counterattacks easier.

Thank you to Ed Weiner with Pro-Tech Air for installing an ultraviolet (UV) light to our training center’s air conditioning unit.

UV light sterilizes mold, bacteria, and viruses. Just another step we’ve taken to keep our training center as clean and disinfected as possible.

This is the best video I found on YouTube explaining how indoor air quality is improved when using UV light with your HVAC.

I’m doing a little spring cleaning and took out all the martial arts and boxing equipment out of my storage unit and put it in the box truck.

I use to resell martial arts and boxing equipment online for a living. This is my remaining inventory from this business.

I’m giving away for FREE any of this equipment to my students who want it!

There are gloves, shin/instep guards, forearm guards, kicks, mouthguards, groin protectors, martial arts uniforms, training pads, and martial arts weapons (and yes, JJ, wooden swords).

Let me know if you want to come on down and take a look at the inventory and take home some of the equipment to help you with your training at home. I promise to stay 6 feet away. 😀

Ed was not nice enough to stop by and drop off some palettes that I needed. He was able to find some good items that he and his daughter can use to practice at home.

.
.
Krav Maga Worldwide Family,

 

Now that many students are unable to come into your school, we know that one of your biggest challenges is to continue to provide them with high-quality training. That’s our challenge too. We developed a solution we’d like to share with you, which will help foster your students’ growth and development in the Krav Maga system even when they’re training at home.

As briefly outlined in yesterday’s email, we created a series of online video lessons that parallel KMW’s curriculum (Levels 1, 2, 3, and Advanced), so members stay engaged in their training and enrolled with you.

As you may know, several years ago we launched an online training resource – Krav Maga Worldwide Academy. This week, we created a special “Subject” on the Academy called KMW Insider that’s FREE and available only for KMW students around the globe.

KMW Insider provides your students with regularly updated online lessons for each KM level (noted above), as well fitness classes and other helpful resources. For your kid members (or students who have kids at home) we’ve opened up the online Krav Maga Kids Self-Defense course for FREE on the Academy. In addition, for students who want to purchase other courses from the Academy, they’re welcome to do so with a 35% discount coupon code – KMWStudent.

Details on how your students can register and receive access to these online resources are included in the student email template below.

We encourage you to invite your active students to participate in KMW Insider and the Kids Self-Defense course, FREE OF CHARGE, as a thank you for supporting you during this difficult time.

Please note: This online service is exclusively for active KMW students. For this reason, we request that you do not share this information on social media, but rather send it to your active students individually via email or private group messages. To make that easier, we’ve included an email template below you can use when informing your students.

Thank you all for your continued dedication to providing the best in reality-based self defense training.

Stay safe. Stay strong.

The Krav Maga Worldwide HQ Team.

March 20, 2020

I received this email late last night from Krav Maga Worldwide Headquarters. I’ll give everyone an update when I get more details.  As of March 20, we are not closed yet.  -Randall

Dear KMW Affiliates and Instructors,

The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to unprecedented challenges; not just for KMW school owners and instructors but also for our communities, near and far.

As Krav Maga instructors, we know how to respond to threats in simple and effective ways. We know how to adapt to circumstances and our environment. We know how to fight!

Over the past week, we’ve had a team of 10 key KMW personnel working around the clock to bring you new tools to help your students continue to progress while they can’t train at your school.

Tomorrow, we’ll be announcing details of a robust online training resource that will be FREE for students of active Krav Maga Worldwide affiliates. This online training will help ensure your students can continue their Krav Maga training while at home.

We will send you details that you can give to your students about how to access this online resource.

Please be on the lookout for additional details tomorrow.

Be safe. Be strong.

The Krav Maga Worldwide Team

Our members and the experience they have training with is what motivates us.

Choke out the coronavirus!

March 18, 2020

JJ and I have spoke to most of our students directly since the Coronavirus situation has started. We are a small, tight knit training center so it has been easy to stay in direct contact with most of our students.

However, I still want to give you all an update on how we’re dealing with the Coronavirus situation to make sure we are all the same page and to avoid any confusion or misunderstandings.

Our training center is open with our regularly scheduled lessons. We will continue to stay open unless ordered to close.

I have made the decision to stay open for the following reasons:

⦁ Unlike most gyms, we keep our student count to less than 10 people which meets most recommended guidelines. Our average group class is about 4 students. That number is even less since the Coronavirus outbreak.
⦁ Due to poor hygience habits and being constantly around each other, kids are the biggest source of catching a virus. With that in mind, we do not teach children under 12 years old. Almost all our students are adults except for 6 of them. And those 6 students who are under 18 , none of them train in any of our public small group classes. They either take private lessons or semi-private lessons with their family or another friend.
⦁ More than 90% of our students are adults. And as adults they can make the best decision for themselves and their family whether it is in their best interest to continue training or not.
⦁ None of our students are under contract. Every student membership is month-to-month. So students have the option to freeze their program until they’re ready to return. No one is required to continue their membership just because I decided to keep the training center open.
⦁ Well before the Coronavirus outbreak, we cleaned and disinfected our training center 7 days a week. And we will continue to do so.

I have some thoughts in regards to training:

⦁ If you feel comfortable to continue training with others, we will maintain the same class schedule. A class will only be canceled if we don’t have the minimum 2 students.
⦁ If you feel more comfortable with the 6 foot distance rule, we can easily have 3 students training at the same time on the heavy bags and maintain this distance. We can do this for our smaller group lessons by request. Or you can train with classmates on your own without an instructor by scheduling open gym times at www.KravMagaCalendar.com.
⦁ If you don’t feel comfortable training with others, consider taking private lessons. All my current private lesson students are still training with me as of this date. And it’s easy for myself and the student to stay 6 feet away from each other during the lesson if requested. You can schedule a private lesson at www.KravMagaCalendar.com or by contacting me.
⦁ If you don’t feel comfortable training with anyone, take advantage of the open gym times and workout at our training center on your own. We have time slots between 6am to 10pm, 7 days a week. Check for available time slots at www.KravMagaCalendar.com. If you have trouble navigating the calendar please contact me so I can assist you. Maintain your fitness level and Krav Maga skills with open gym times. As always, please clean all the equipment you use (cleaning supplies are in the closet) after you finish your workout.
⦁ Watch the instructional videos posted on our YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/KravMagaOnline. Many martial arts schools are now offering their students live classes online to try and maintain their memberships and keep their business afloat. I’m not even going to bother with this because all our students already have access to hundreds of hours of instructional videos for free on our YouTube channel. Our Student Section playlist currently has 171 different instructional videos, including every single technique listed in the Level 1 curriculum. And JJ and I will continue to add one or two new videos each week.
⦁ In our Facebook student only group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1967013023593395, I will start uploading videos on training tips and suggestions when working out alone either at home or at our training center during open gym times. These videos should be helpful to keep you staying sharp if you are unable or unwilling to train with partners. And before you complain to me that this unfair because you are not on Facebook: It takes 5 minutes to create a Facebook account and just use it exclusively for our student group. I know we already have some students who have done this.

Finally, just stay in contact with us if you have any needs or concerns. JJ and I are both easy to get a hold of via phone call, text, email, Facebook/Instagram message, or posting in our Facebook student group. Don’t be shy and just contact us if you need anything at all. We are here for you!

Thank you everyone for your support!

From the ISR Matrix Clutch seminar this past weekend. I learned a lot and liked how the techniques are organized in an effective system. Everyone else also spoke positively of the seminar. I look forward to learning more in the future and integrating the techniques in our Krav Maga curriculum.

Krav Maga Fitness – Bas Rutten All-Around Fighting Workout (Switching Stances Variation)

Our Krav Maga Fitness program integrates a lot of workouts that are specific and functional to our Self Defense and Fighting training.

The workout that is used most often by our students is the Bas Rutten Mixed Martial Arts Workouts.

This workout shows you how to switch from orthodox stance (left foot in front) to southpaw stance (right foot in front) for each striking combination.

There’s two ways when to switch stances:

1. Switch stances after each striking combination.
2. Switch stances only after you sprawl (defense).

This video shows a combination of both variations listed above.

This is a more challenging workout for those who already feel very comfortable doing the workout from the orthodox stance. It teaches you how to seamlessly throw combinations from both orthodox and southpaw stances.

Train Hard. Stay Ready. Act Decisively.

February 27, 2020

Train for the worst situations possible.
🔥
Know what to do when things are bad. Train in a such a way that you are able to maintain focus and act decisively in the toughest of times.
👊🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide training is about being able to react, fight back, win and go home safe. We’re never training from the position of being the attacker. We train for self-defense, not offense, so we must consider the worst circumstances and how to overcome them.
💪🏻
Krav Maga Worldwide training makes people safer and stronger. Physically and mentally. It’s about being ready. Staying ready and having the skills to fight back, win, and go home safe. Every time.
