First, we have a new Assistant Organizer in the Alexandria/Arlington area. Look for some new meetups around there in the near future.
Second, while not Krav Maga related, there is an amazing opportunity to train with one of the best Judo players in the country. The 4-week basics course led by Jeff Steel, the 2010 National Masters Champion, will be a great experience for beginners and advanced practitioners. Beginners get a great introduction to the art. Experienced Judoka will be able to re-evaluate their game and re-visit their fundamentals.
That's it for now. We'll make more announcements about the group as we schedule our next meetups.
Take care & looking forward to seeing you all in class soon,
Learn and practice practical self-defense and striking skills. Krav Maga is known for its use of instinctual movements and reality-based drills and scenarios.
The basic premise of Krav Maga is "don't get hurt." This means out on the street as well as in the training hall. We take care of our partners during training and while we try to make training as realistic as possible, we do so with concern for their safety.
There is balance in our training and we acknowledge that developing our mental capabilities is just as important as developing our physical techniques. Controlling emotions, dealing with stress, and improving our physical techniques are all parts that make up the whole of the Krav Maga system.
