What Our Students Say:

“Krav Maga is so much fun. The classes are a great workout as well as teaching you to defend yourself in an increasingly uncertain world. George is a fantastic and knowledgeable instructor. I highly recommend USA Professional Karate!” – Mr. CK

“Every class is my favorite class, honestly. This is the best part of my day.” – Ms. NS

“Honestly, I’ve never felt more complete as a person than when I started taking classes.” – Ms. KC

“Great class - you are going to need more room soon” – Dr. JP

“I’ve never stuck with a structured fitness class as long as I have this time with KM and it’s something I look forward to every week... and use what we do outside of the studio... I knew what I could do if I needed to defend myself. I have a new confidence now when I walk around by myself.” – Ms. AK




What Is Krav Maga?

The literal translation from Hebrew to English is "contact combat" or "close combat". Krav Maga is the most effective, real world, self-defense system. It was originally developed for the Israeli military and is now the preferred system for U.S. military units and law enforcement agencies. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach extremely effective self-defense in the shortest possible time.

With Krav Maga you learn how to defend against common chokes, grabs, and strikes as well as even more serious threats involving weapons. Our instructors teach people how to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Although Krav Maga training is intense and aggressive, there is no experience necessary to begin. Every class is a fun and vigorous workout that will challenge you, build confidence and keep you physically fit. Join us and get strong, confident and safe!
