Making People Confident, Strong, and Safe . . .

We are the most established Karate school in the greater Pittsburgh area, having first opened our doors on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill in March, 1981. Sensei George Mowod and staff teach American Freestyle Karate, which is a combination of different styles of karate and various martial arts mixed with sport kickboxing, American boxing, and weapon's training and defense, to produce immediate and practical application of the martial arts. We have a friendly, respectful, family atmosphere where we emphasize character development, physical fitness and self-defense. Our teaching methods employ up-to-date & scientifically proven means of learning such as positive reinforcement, goal setting, and use of stripes, belts, merit patches and rewards to motivate, encourage and maintain the interest of every student. As a result, we see hundreds of students reaching their highest potential in life. Our children's program is second to none and includes a variety of specific classes for children based on age and experience level.

If you are looking for a way to strengthen your body, sharpen your mind, and boost your confidence, you’ve come to the right place! Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and is widely regarded as the best self-defense system because of its efficient, no-nonsense, tactics that emphasize instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. As an Official Krav Maga Worldwide™ Training Center, we teach the absolute best way to learn to defend yourself against real-world dangers. We are committed to empowering people to be safe, healthy and confident. Come in for a FREE trial class today and you will see why Krav Maga is the best self-defense system and why Krav Maga Worldwide™ is the industry leader in reality based “Self-Defense, Fighting, and Fitness”.
