#ThrowbackThursday from 8 years ago: Krav Maga – Elbow #6 (Hand Position) Video:
The Vertical Elbow Strike Forward and Upward (Elbow #6) is one of the most difficult elbow strikes to perform properly in Krav Maga. If you’re having trouble getting power and accuracy in this elbow, this video will help you out! It explains the key details to a proper hand position while performing this elbow strike, the pros and cons to having a fist vs. an open hand when doing any type of elbow strike, how this particular elbow is similar to Covering Defenses Against Hook Punches, and more!

#ThrowbackThursday from 4 years ago: Knife Defense against Upward Stab (Control to Disarm Transition Details)
.
From this past Saturday’s Surviving Common Knife Attacks workshop, by far the most difficult technique detail that most participants had trouble learning is addressed in this video.

May 25, 2022

One of the best parts of our Krav Maga training are the friendships you create and keep.
.
Jonathan (Big Jon) and Mike have stayed in touch but haven’t seen each other in person in 20 years! They finally reconnected in person at our knife defenses workshop this past Saturday.
.
I haven’t seen Tom‘s son Matt in my classes since he was 17 years old. He walks through the entrance door for the knife defenses workshop as a 21 year old man. I didn’t even recognize him at first! It was great to see him again!

#ThrowBackThursday from 4 years ago.

In the technical part of this Fight class we worked on several methods to gouge our opponent’s eyes during a fight.

We started the class by reviewing the defense against Bearhug from the Front with Arms Free – Leverage on the Neck (Level 2 technique). This defense involves using our thumbs for eye gouges to leverage our attacker’s neck.

Next we practiced Palming Heel Striking (Level 1) to push our opponent away while simultaneously inserting our fingers or thumbs into the eyes while pushing their face away.

The last technique we practiced was to clinch with our opponent using a Neck or Collar Tie-Up (Level 3) while using our opposite hand to insert our thumb into the opponent’s eye socket. It was explained that this technique should only be used when you feel your life is in danger due to the high chance you can permanently blind your attacker. However, there’s no such thing as “fighting dirty” when your life depends on it!

The beginning of this video shows myself and Tom sparring. I’m able to successfully simulate the Head Tie-Up/Eye Gouge technique during two exchanges. Notice that I use other combatives, especially lower body strikes, such as knees and kicks in conjunction with this eye gouge technique.

Thank you to my students who attended this Fight class! Please contact me if you want feedback on your sparring rounds.

Throwback Thursday from 5 years ago:
.
Last night in our Level 1 Self Defense class, we worked on the defense against a Choke from the Side.
.
We worked on three Combatives that go with this defense:
1. Elbow #4 (Vertical Elbow Strike Backward Low)
2. Elbow #5 (Vertical Elbow Strike Backward)
3. Hammerfist to the Side
.
Elbows #4 and #5 are modified for this defense by delivering them sideways instead of backward.
.
I noticed the Elbow #4 Student Section video has not been uploaded to our Facebook page yet. It explains the difference between delivery the strike with speed vs. power.
.
Please note that when delivering this elbow to the side you would substitute a lean with the body instead of a pivot with the foot.
.
Video description:
The Vertical Elbow Strike Backward Low (Elbow #4) can be delivered in two general ways. One version emphasizes speed. The other version emphasizes power. This video demonstrates the differences between the two versions and the pros and cons of each. Also, it will explain why you would use one version over the other depending on the circumstances in a fight or self-defense situation.

Krav Maga System Principle:
Attack Vulnerable Areas
.
Attack vulnerable areas such as eyes, throat, the groin, the top of the foot, knee, etc.
.
Now, why is it important to strike these areas?
.
Because we need to overcome attackers who are bigger and stronger than us. And these areas represent equalizers.
.

With 911 calls going unanswered or not responded to, more than ever, we all must take responsibility for our own personal protection.
.
One of our students Mike Donovan saw a confrontation out in the parking in front of a Dunkin Donuts a couple of weeks ago. He called 911 to report the incident. It took the police over an hour to respond to the scene.
.
Last week in front of our own Krav Maga training center out in the parking lot, our student Yanique called 911 when she witnessed a female being harassed by a male. She spoke with the female who said she was being threated by her ex-boyfriend who she has a restraining order against. Despite calling 911, the police never showed up!
.
Learn how to protect yourself. You can’t always rely on law enforcement to do it for you!

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training deals with real world threats like attackers armed with handguns.

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 at times but it’s training with us that will make the difference if you find yourself in this sort of life-threatening situation.

Attendance for our self-defense classes were low last night due to Cinco de Mayo. So, after training a couple of defenses against full nelson attacks, we had some extra time at end of our intermediate level class. So we played the “Monkey Around The Tree” grappling game. None of these students had played the game before. Brian was the first one to get all the way around the tree (Greg). Good job Brian! It’s a fun game but is also an excellent conditioning drill for both the monkey and the tree.

Krav Maga System Principle:
Deal with Secondary Dangers That May Exist Within an Attack.
.
“So, not only do we need to deal with wants in front of us. Making the defense, countering, being super aggressive, eliminating that danger. But once that’s finished, we need to also look around in our surroundings. What could possibly be next? Does this person have a friend? Does he have a third attacker? Etc. So, dealing with the second attacker is something we always need to consider after we have dealt with the first one.”
.
-Michael Margolin, 5th Degree Black Belt

April 18, 2022

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training teaches students to identify the danger in a given situation and act decisively to eliminate the danger so that they can go home safe.
.
This approach applies to both unarmed and armed attacks. We empower students with the skills they need to act decisively, to fight back and win if they are attacked or their life is threatened.

Why It’s Never Too Late To Start Training

It’s NEVER too late to get better and at no point do any of us know everything. Training is for everyone at whatever life stage you’re at and background you come from.

April 8, 2022

Krav Maga System Principle:
Defend and Counterattack Simultaneously (or as soon as possible).
.
When and if possible, delivery your counterattacks simultaneous to your defense.
This is a key principle.
Our attacks must be delivered as early as possible with our defenses. And they need to be aggressive and fierce as well.
We know that nobody has ever won a fight by just defending. The attacker is not going to get frustrated and walk away. So, my defenses have to come with aggressive, fierce counterattacks.
.
– Michael Margolin, 5th Degree Black Belt

Training at Krav Maga Worldwide will make you physically and mentally tougher.

Quick interview I had with CanvasRebel Magazine.


March 28, 2022

Krav Maga System Principle:
Utilize the Body’s Natural Instincts
.
Why? Why is that important?
.
Because we know that under stress, when you’re fearful, when you’re adrenalized, that your body is going to resort to what it’s instinct is.
.
And if we design a technique that’s close to your body’s instinct, that’s what’s likely to come out of your body in a time of need.
.
Not only that, but it’s easier to learn if it’s close to what you do naturally. And you’ll retain it longer.
.
– Michael Margolin, 5th Degree Black Belt


March 25, 2022

Defend and counterattack simultaneously. Turn the tide of the encounter in your favor. Fight back. Win. Go home safe.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training uses instinctive movements that stress simultaneous defense and counterattack. We train to defend ourselves, not to initiate a fight or assault, so turning the encounter in our favor and getting away are the highest priorities.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป
We want everyone to be able to walk in peace so we train to be ready for the worst case scenario. Every day.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Start training with us today!


ย 

March 19, 2022

Identify and Eliminate the Immediate Danger.
.
So, when considering a technique, we’re always looking at what is the immediate danger in this technique and we build our defenses off of that first.
.
So, for example, if someone is choking you, the immediate danger is the thumbs on the choke. If someone has a gun to your head, what’s the immediate danger? It’s being in the line of fire when the gun is fired.
.
So, we know we need to eliminate these dangers first before we continue with the rest of the defense.
.

March 12, 2022

In order to know what to do in a really bad situation or position, you have to train on those positions and stresses.
.
Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training puts students in positions of disadvantage and teaches them the skills to fight back and win from those positions. We can’t always control where the fight goes, and we certainly can’t control when we might find ourselves in a self-defense situation so it’s important to train for things being at their worst.

March 7, 2022

Train from a Position of Disadvantage.
.
We know that violent confrontations don’t happen immediately after you’ve warmed up and you’re ready and prepared. They happen when you’re not expecting it.
.
So, all of our movements, all of our defenses, come from a position of disadvantage. We know that if we can defend from the worst case scenario, from the position of disadvantage, we can also defend when we’re more comfortable. When we’re more ready.
.
Train from a position of disadvantage and then go to the advantage position with an aggressive defense and counterattack.
.

What This Man Learned From 30 Days of Krav Maga Training

March 1, 2022

Don’t Get Hurt
.
Krav Maga is founded on a number of core principles that are going to be important to know as you’re going through your training.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
Our number one core principle is “Don’t Get Hurt”.
This might seem obvious but it has a number of different applications.
๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ
First of all, don’t get hurt means avoiding a confrontation when you can. That means we have to build awareness to know and understand when a confrontation might be imminent.
๐Ÿ‘€
If you can’t avoid the danger, then you need to aggressive as you possibly can be to eliminate the threat. And therefore, you won’t get hurt that way.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
And finally, it means not getting hurt in training. So, we need to make sure that our training methods or drills are realistic but safe as well.
๐Ÿค๐Ÿผ
– Michael Margolin, 5th Degree Black Belt

February 24, 2022

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.

February 8, 2022

Is it “unfair” to slam your knee into the groin of someone who is trying to hurt you? Is it “dirty” to gouge the eyes or throat of someone who wants to bring harm to your family? Is it “uncool” to train on techniques, like striking to the back of the head, that would be considered illegal in a sanctioned sport fight? We don’t think so. We want anyone who trains with us to be able to fight back and win in a life-threatening situation…regardless of what they have to do.
.
We understand that anyone can use “dirty” techniques in a fight, and of course we don’t poke each other’s eyes out every day in class. When we spar and train full contact we train with gear, and with rules. You cannot improve your skills if you are constantly hurting each other or recovering from injury. Self-defense training however develops the mentality in our students that they can and will use “dirty” tactics to survive. Survival is the roots of Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training. Fight back. Win. Walk in peace.

An important part of our Krav Maga self-defense and fighting program is including realistic training scenarios.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
One of many Krav Maga system principles is to “analyze and use the environment as much as possible”.
๐Ÿช‘
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.

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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.

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!

An important Krav Maga system principle is that training must include the stress experienced in real attacks.
๐Ÿ‘Š
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.
๐ŸŒ™
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.

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!

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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
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.
๐Ÿ—“
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.
๐ŸŒŽ
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
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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.

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! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿคฃ

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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
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.

September 8, 2021

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training deals with real world threats like attackers armed with guns, knives, or blunt objects.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป
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.

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.”
๐Ÿ˜ค
First, Krav Maga training is an intense workout! Any type of exercise will help you relieve stress from your life.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
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!
๐Ÿ‘Š
But what makes our Krav Maga training classes and lessons unique is our emphasis on โ€œreplicating 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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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 Worldwideโ€™s mission is to give everyone the skills to be safer and stronger.

“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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
Our mission is to empower every person with real skills to make them safer and stronger so they may walk in peace.

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 atย 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.ย

Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training teaches students to fight back and do damage to the person who would damage you or others.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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, weโ€™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”โ€”in the house that Richard and Rorion sharedโ€”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!

How To Krav Maga.ย  ๐Ÿ˜„

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 Womenโ€™s Self-Defense Course: a course specifically designed to address the epidemic of violence against women.
The Womenโ€™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. Itโ€™s about survival. Itโ€™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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
We train for situations like abduction, car-jacking, active shooter events, third party defense, and many more because theyโ€™re real, theyโ€™re scary, and we want our students to know what to do if they find themselves in the worst of circumstances.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
If you donโ€™t train on these sorts of real-world, scary, situations you simply wonโ€™t have the skills or tactical knowledge you need to prevail if your life is on the line.

Pluck defenses are a good introductory technique to Krav Maga because they illustrate so many of Krav Magaโ€™s core principles:
-Instinctual Movementย ๐Ÿ‘€ย : Your instinctual response to a choke is to bring your hands towards your throat.
-Effective for Everyoneย ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿง“๐Ÿง‘: Because plucks useย โšก๏ธspeedโšก๏ธย andย โš–๏ธย leverageย โš–๏ธย to attack at the weakest part of the choke, anyone can pluck.
-Easy to learnย ๐Ÿ“ย : You can learn how to capably pluck in less than an hour.
-Practicalย ๐Ÿ’ชย : Chokes are a common attack making plucking an essential tool in your self-defense toolboxย ๐Ÿงฐ

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.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
We donโ€™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 themselvesโ€ฆ.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.

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

Weโ€™re not exactly sure where or when this term originated but a front kick to the groin is often referred to as a โ€œKrav Maga Handshakeโ€.
๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
Front kick to the groin is one of the first techniques taught in Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense Level 1. Itโ€™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.
๐Ÿ’ฏ
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.

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.

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 fightโ€ฆbut 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.

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.

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.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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. Itโ€™s one of the fundamental thingsย that students learn in Level 1.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป
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.

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 this video we answer a common question from our students who ask how to properly do the Left Knee-Right Straight combination that Bas calls out in his Thai Boxing workout.

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.,
ย 
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.

It comes from you.
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป
One of the first things that Krav Maga Worldwide self-defense training teaches and instills in students is fighting spirit. The idea that you wonโ€™t stop. The idea that you wonโ€™t quit. The idea that you will keep fighting back if you are assaultedโ€ฆ.and the ability to manifest that with your physical skills.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
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, itโ€™s a huge source of pride for instructors.๐Ÿ’ฏ
Donโ€™t forget why you started training. Donโ€™t stop pushing to get better. To get stronger and be safer.
๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
Training conditions have changed for the time being but the worldโ€™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:ย  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1967013023593395/

If you want a copy of the Krav Maga Level 2 warm-up audio MP3 file, please contact me. I’ll reply with an email through Dropbox that will contain a download link.
