Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. Created by Imi Lichtenfeld, Krav Maga has become well known for it’s effectiveness.  It is a system of defense, not a traditional martial art. Many civilians around the world have seen positive results from training in Krav Maga. Not only will the training get you in shape, it will empower you while learning new skills.

Poudly affiliated with Elite Training Center in Redondo Beach, California, we are the only current Krav Maga facility in Halifax. 

Our Krav Maga Classes focus on the basic fundamentals of movement, chokes, holds, strikes, defending strikes, kicks, elbows, knees, ground-defense, controlled live-training and Krav-specific conditioning exercises. The component of mind-set in self-defense is often overlooked. We ensure that you have the mental toughness and smarts, to survive a dangerous situation.
