The Hebrew term Krav Maga literally means "Contact Combat." Originally developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in 1948. Krav Maga is a hard hitting, simple to use system of advanced conflict resolution, when other methods have failed. Krav Maga utilizes several techniques from; Western-style boxing, Thai-boxing, Grappling, Wrestling and other Self Defense Disciplines. We are constantly continuing to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of its practitioners. Krav Maga follows some very basic principles: Defend and immediately counter attack from a position of disadvantage, using the body's natural reaction, and neutralize the threat by any and all means, "So that one may walk in peace."

Alpha Krav Maga Hampton Roads teaches practical techniques for realistic altercations. There is no ‘flashy’ showmanship with Krav Maga, it is simple, effective, and violent.  AKM has trained me to prepare for, real-life, self-defense scenarios and get home alive.

This is my first martial arts training and thanks to Alpha Krav Maga, I've discovered a new passion for it. I want to highlight the instructors that they are the best in helping you get better. They are very respectful and will motivate you to be the best person you can be. It is definitely a gym where your hard work will pay off and where you will see a difference in your mental fitness as well as your physical.

Over the past two decades I have been enrolled in many self-defense disciplines. This is the most straight forward no nonsense defense course I have been in. There is no talk of self-discipline by standing on one leg for half an hour, or focusing your chi through guided meditation, or shouting out commands in Japanese to seem more mystical. This focuses on what you need to do to survive when someone is attacking you.
