Krav Maga is designed for today's reality. It is unlikely that in modern day Israel you will be attacked with a Samurai sword or a pair of nunchuks. As such, with limited training time, we do not focus on defending against those weapons. Similarly there is no record of anyone in Israel being attacked with a Chinese broad sword or with Ninja throwing stars. Guns, knives, and sticks, on the other hand, are very much a part of our reality.

It is our belief that in order to properly defend against a weapon you must have a basic understanding of how that weapon works. You have to have experience from the other side, you need to be the attacker.
Therefore when we do our knife defense training we not only practice defending against a knife attack but we also take a turn as the attacker. When it comes to hand guns we believe every student over the age of 18 should have a basic understanding of how a gun works.
All of our shooting instructors are combat veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces, with vast real life eexperience and teaching experience.

We should be familiar with the sound, the smoke, the surprise of the bullet, the flying cartridges and the general feel of a gun. We believe that the first time you handle a gun should not be when some street thug or terrorist points one at you.
