Whether you are brand new to Krav Maga or have trained in the past this group is for you! People from all over Northern Virginia now have a chance to train in Krav Maga with certified instructors, have a blast, get fit and learn valuable self-defense skills all at the same time. The Krav Maga System was developed so that any adult regardless of age, gender or size can learn to effectively deal with a violent encounter and learn to manage fear, stress and disadvantage. Krav Maga is heavy on the martial and light on the art. Krav Maga is a principle based system of self-defense. Some of the basic principles of the system are: movement should be based on natural instinct, techniques must address the immediate danger, one defense must work against a variety of attacks, training must include the stress found in a real attack and all movements must be accessible to the average person, not just athletes or martial artists.
