The new Krav Maga Fight class begins next week Wednesday, 10/3, at 7:30PM. (Reminder: the Wednesday evening Krav Maga Fundamentals class moves to 6:30PM.) Please read through the details below before attending the class.
Thanks to all who attended last Saturday’s launch of the Krav Maga Scenarios class! We hope it was both fun and informative.
Continuing with defenses from a seated position, this week’s scenario will be…
DEFENDING AGAINST CHOKE/GRAB ATTACKS WHILE SITTING IN A CHAIR
Post requests for future scenarios to the comments below!
All students are welcome to watch the test or participate alongside the students testing. Even if you’re not being graded, the test is an excellent review of the curriculum as well as an intense physical and mental challenge.
We will have prep classes as we near the test. Review the Level 1 Curriculum and bring any questions to class so that we can help you best prepare. You can also post any questions to the comments below.

Saturday morning Krav Maga returns to the schedule this Saturday, 9/22.
This will still be an all-levels class, but we are changing the format to focus on environment- and scenario-based drills. We want to apply Krav Maga principles to “what-if” situations not necessarily directly addressed by the curriculum. The topic for our first training session will be…
DEFENDING PUNCH ATTACKS WHILE SITTING IN A CHAIR
Once we build some momentum with attendance, we’d like to have content for the class driven by students. Perhaps we’ll set up some kind of virtual suggestion box where you can submit your very own 27 Ninjas Questions.
But first, you must come to Saturday morning classes!
How do you take out three armed assailants, bursting into a Florida strip mall casino, their guns out and firing?
To judge by appearances, the guard is not exactly cut and chiseled. (By all means, try Patrick’s sweet potato diet—just not entirely in the form of fries!)
But how many of us could react as quickly and decisively as he did? I’ll go first: not me.
The young man he shot is recovering from his wounds, but is not cooperating with police. Until the other two gentlemen are arrested, police are not releasing the name of the guard.
But they are open with their respect:
‘It’s maybe a job where you sit for hours and something like this may never happen in your career but for it to happen and to react that quickly says something about his mindset,’ Shelley added in admiration of the guard.
‘His reaction may have saved his life and possibly the lives of others in the building.’
I don’t know what training he had. I don’t know if his side-to-side movement was part of that training (better than being a stationary target? improving his angle as the bad guys ducked?), or just nervous energy. But the instant he looked up from the Sudoku or Jumble, he clicked into action mode and didn’t click off until the threat had been neutralized. Completely. Shoes included.
How many times have we heard that instruction in our own training? How much clearer could the consequences be? When you go—if you go—you go all out. Shoes included.
(Legally, a shod foot is considered a dangerous weapon, so think twice about the shoes. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)
