How long until I can effectively defend myself?
Like any martial arts or self-defense system to be effective as possible you must continually train. Krav Maga is no different, however; due to Krav Maga's use of natural reactions it does not take long to begin picking up the skills. You will be able to utilize some basic concepts and principles as well as foundational skills within a few weeks to months, due to the level of skill/ learning pace of the individual.
How long are the classes?
Regular Training Classes range from 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Our Intro Class is 45 minutes.
Does Krav Maga have belts/testing?
Yes, Krav Maga does have a belt system. Testing is done every several months where a level belt is given but is not required to wear during class. Students testing are required to re-take the previous level test, and current test when advancing past level 1. Juniors belt testing is every 3 months and all Juniors are required to wear their belts to class.
Is sparring required?
Sparring is not required of beginning students, but becomes a requirement when leveling from level 1 to level 2 and up. When first sparring you will work with one of our more experienced students, or assistant coaches at a manageable level and build from there.
How many classes can I take per week?
You can take as many classes as you want. Our only requirement is 2 days per week so that you can retain the material from the week.
What are the cost of the classes?
The cost of the training depends on what path you choose. For more detailed information and guidance please call us at 757-564-6200
