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 methods and several fighting techniques including; Western-style boxing, Thai-boxing, grappling, and wrestling that continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of its practitioners. It follows some very basic principles: Defend and immediately counter attack from a position of disadvantage, using the body's natural reaction, and eliminate the threat by any and all means, "So that one may walk in peace."

Currently in 2016 we've seen society take a turn for the worse. We have seen our younger generation be disrespectful, lazy, obsessed with phones, and in constant need of "safe spaces."Our training is centered around bringing up stronger individuals, with a strong sense of respect, independence, and confidence that they can carry with them through life. At AKMHR we have always stayed on course and have never wavered in bringing up the next generation.
