Krav Maga is the official self defense system of the IDF... Israeli Defense
Forces, and has been taught to hundreds of law enforcement agencies and
thousands of civilians in the United States.
Originally Developed for the Israeli Military. Krav Maga is Now the Preferred System for U.S. Military and Law enforcement.
Pinellas Krav Maga is the ONLY Official and Authentic Krav Maga WorldWide School in the Tampa Bay Area!
Are you interested in learning and practicing the most realistic and
practical self-protection systems in the world? Do you need or want a
nonstop, total mind and body conditioning in a FUN and SUPER supportive environment?
Krav Maga is NOT a traditional martial art. No
katas. NO traditional weapons. No rituals.
Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based
system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible
time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as
well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks.
Just as important, Pinellas Krav Maga teaches people to function during
the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the
battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self
defense will make you safer and more secure.
Krav Maga is a linear system as opposed to many martial arts which
are circular in nature. Krav Maga is easy to learn and more importantly
retain as it is based on principles and methodologies not techniques. Under stress the
mind can become confused and consequently freeze under severe stress so
Krav Maga is based on instinctive reactions which do not require
Krav Maga training prepares students to deal with the worst case
scenarios. The system is designed so that the set of principles which
are the fundamentals of every technique apply to several potential
attacks/scenarios. It is because of this approach that trainees reach a
high level of proficiency, mentally and technically, in a relatively
short time. Krav-Maga is a modern method characterized by a logical and
practical approach. It is an easy to perform, natural, and effective
system featuring simple movements and “reflexive” behavior.
The ultimate goal is to keep the trainee safe from harm and to give
him or her the ability, confidence and security to defend themselves
"The essence of Krav Maga can be understood by defining some of these principles"
- Techniques should be movements based on natural instincts & body mechanics
- Techniques must address the immediate danger
- One defense must work against variety of attacks
- The system should be integrated so that movements learned in one
area of the system (combatives) complement, rather than contradict,
movements in another area (self protection).
- Techniques must be accessible to the average person, not just athletes or previously trained.
- Techniques must work from a position of disadvantage or poor state of readiness
- Training must include the stress/duress experienced in real attacks
Using basic techniques in various combinations, students develop an awareness and ability to defend against surprise attacks, often through the modification of material and improvisation. Combat training generates implicit awareness and sensitivity in the everyday interactions that take place on the street.
Krav Maga does not exclusively rely on strength or power; in true self-defense situations the attacker will be bigger, stronger and better prepared for conflict; from the outset students are trained to strike vulnerable targets rather than trying to match opponent strength against strength. Students are constantly amazed by the pride and empowerment that accompany training in Krav Maga.
Our training programs challenge students to realize their physical fitness goals, and allow them to exceed their expectations. Differences in personal conditioning and ability are respected, and each student is encouraged to maximize his or her own unique capability, with a focus on speed, endurance, and accuracy. Through Krav Maga training, all students develop the coordination necessary for effective self-defense.
