Krav Maga School NYC

What makes our Krav Maga school NYC the real deal?

Here are the top 9 qualifications to look out for:

  1. The Vast Experience Krav Maga schools must have experienced instructors with several years of self defense training background. One of the key elements that experienced fighters have is their ability to evolve and continue to add tool to their “fighting tool box.”
  2. The Source Connection Krav Maga school NYC that are connected to an Israeli source of trainers are more likely to be properly trained. To be a good instructor, you don’t need to be born in Israel, but there’s no doubt that someone who understands the Krav Maga mentality – because it’s a part of their culture – would be able to pass on the knowledge more effectively.
  3. The True Expert Less than 1% of all practitioners work their way up to an Expert level. It’s a process that can take between 6-10 years. If your instructors are at that level, your Krav Maga school is more likely to be legit. Trainers must live up to what they expect from their students. Their knowledge, and physical ability to perform it under stress is what makes them experts. At Krav Maga Experts we hire only the best of the best.
  4. The Legit Certification You should ask the instructors where they got their training and certifications. What were the prerequisites to join the certification program? How long was their Instructor’s Course? The answer should be easy to find; it starts with the person who answers the phone and continues to the company’s website. Instructors’ training resumes should be available.
  5. The Fitness ‘Add-On’ Fitness is a benefit of Krav Maga training, not the objective. You will get fit when you train hard anyway. The class must be structured to allow you learn self defense skills safely. A great part of being a fighter is fit. Fighting is very physically demanding. Being a good fighter requires being quick, strong, aggressive and accurate. All of the above (and more) are the qualities you will possess if you train hard.
  6. The Teaching Skill Trainers can be highly skilled, but their skill is not an indication of their ability to teach well. Teaching is a profession, not a gig. Every student has different needs and ability to learn. Professional instructors will find the best approach to teaching you how to maximize your training, safely.
  7. The Adaptive Curriculum Krav Maga is intended to keep us safe – in real life. Threats are a changing factor depending on when and where we are. 50 years ago in Israel, we faced different threats than we do in New York City of 2017. So the self defense that we teach must correlate with the necessities of our time. This fact is crucial to understand when you make the distinction between ‘sports fighting’ and ‘realistic street fighting.’ A curriculum with techniques that do not evolve and change over time cannot, by definition, teach us real self defense.
  8. The Simplicity Element What sets Krav Maga apart from other forms of self-defense is the focus on realistic scenarios and our current lifestyle. It’s the ability apply a single move to a variety of circumstances. Our Krav Maga school NYC has to keep up with the highest standards, where everyone is busy and can hardly spare two hours a week to train. Krav Maga training must be efficient and relatively easy to learn.
  9. The Creative Mind Teaching students to fight in different locations is important too – literally – get out of their comfort zone. Training is staircases, uneven grounds, fighting in the dark and even defend themselves against several aggressors at once all contribute to their ability to implement and apply their knowledge.
