"If I'd known learning to defend myself would be this easy to start I would've done it years ago."
I always painted martial arts classes to be these crazy, tough things (and kind of intimidating too). I mean you wear these uniforms and have to bow to people and it just really didn't seem like my kind of thing.
After starting Krav Maga, I realize it's kind of the “rebel” of martial arts. You DON'T have to wear a uniform - just bring comfy gym clothes. There's also no bowing or anything else that makes martial arts seem unapproachable.
It's totally raw and REAL. You don't learn anything that you don't need. You only learn what you will help you in a real world situation, and nothing less. Honestly, you just show up, have a ton of fun, and immediately start learning how to defend yourself. I mean after day one you already feel more confident.
"I will never be scared again."
The other night I was out with a couple friends. Some guy who had too much to drink came up to us and start talking some serious trash. He seemed really hostile, like he might start a fight with us too.
The thing is, even though I was with 4 other guys... I locked up. It was like I froze. The way the guy was yelling and waving his arms around just caught me off guard, and I was worried for myself and my friends. I felt really embarrassed afterward. Ashamed. As a man, you feel like you should be this “Rambo” guy who can handle himself. I don’t wanna be Rambo or anything, but I at least want to know that I can defend myself.
I haven't been taking Krav Maga for very long. But even with the short amount of time I’ve been learning - I know for a FACT that if anything like that ever happened again, I’d be able to defend myself and my friends.
I don’t mean to say I wanna go around picking fights or anything. But sometimes fights find you. And if another one ever does - I'll feel safe, for myself and whoever I'm with.
"An AWESOME calorie-burning workout!"
I know a lot of people take Krav Maga for self-defense... But to be honest my main goal was to lose some weight. Believe me, you WILL lose weight with this! I can already see the kilos melting right off!
Every class is full of great fat-melting workouts. And as an added bonus, I now know how to defend myself. It’s the best of both worlds. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, or for self-defense, this is the real deal.
Just get started already! You won't regret it!
"This is real-world stuff that anyone can use successfully."
I've tried other forms of martial arts, like Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu. While I think those have their strengths - none of them ever clicked with me. It's kind of like college... where you take a couple years of “pre-requisite” classes before you really start to learn anything.
With those martial arts - I felt like you have to jump through hoops for a few years before you really get to a level where you can take care of yoruself.
What I love about Krav Maga is that from day 1 you learn real-world tactics that you can start using that day. This is the no B.S. path to self-defense.
