Israeli self-defense, or “Krav Maga”, is a self-defense system developed for the military in Israel that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from boxing, savate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jujutsu, wrestling, and grappling, along with realistic fight training. Our Israeli Self Defense classes focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks.
Israeli self-defense has a philosophy emphasizing threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression. “Krav Maga” is used by Israeli Defense Forces, both regular and special forces, and several closely related variations have been developed and adopted by law enforcement and intelligence organizations, Mossad and Shin Bet.
Israeli self defense classes encourages students to avoid confrontation. If this is impossible or unsafe, it promotes finishing a fight as quickly as possible. Drills provide maximum safety to students by the use of protective equipment and the use of reasonable force. Students will learn to defend against all variety of attacks and are taught to counter in the quickest and most efficient way during the Israeli Self Defense Class.

“The best part of my day starts when I walk through the doors of Champion. I actually started working out at Champion because I was horribly bored with the same old gym scene that I could barely tolerate the thought of one more mind-numbing workout. I can’t wait for that day’s boxing fitness class or private lessons with one of their competitive fighters. I’ve lost 30 pounds since joining, because having a workout that’s challenging and enjoyable makes all the difference!”
