I have a special Krav Maga seminar designed for High School and Elementary school students.
Speaking at Manhattan Day School
There are several elements which can each form a separate seminar or, be included in one session.
The Jewish/Israeli Aspect: This aspect is designed to make the students feel prouder to be Jewish, to connect to their Jewish history on a different level. While they may already be studying the Torah or Jewish history, this will give them a new and exciting way to connect.
Did they know about how our forefathers fought? Do they know that Abraham taught martial arts?
I also incorporate stories from everyday life in Israel. This helps the students connect with the people of Israel and gain insight into the daily lives, challenges and heroism of "ordinary" people.
Advanced TORAH PROGRAM: using mepharshim. This program is designed for those who are familiar with Biblical commentary and understand its relevance. This is appropriate for students in Day Schools or Yeshiva high schools. We look at some of the subtle references to fighting and combat in the Torah, Neviim and Ktuvim.
SELF DEFENSE: In all programs we incorporate simple self defense techniques that are easy to learn and apply. The students feel excited to learn techniques actually used by Israeli soldiers and police.
