March 16, 2019 – J4G’s Self Defense Class


Let’s learn how to protect ourselves….  and then have dinner and drinks!

Krav Maga – or contact combat – is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Force, as well as law enforcement agencies around the country. It is a reality-based system that was developed to be used effectively on the streets by men and women of all sizes and uses simple and instinctive movements that are easy to learn and remember, especially under high stress situations. The basic principles of Krav Maga are threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression; in other words, recognize danger at the earliest stages, react without hesitation and with a seamless explosion of violence, and eliminate the danger as quickly as possible by delivering a series of combatives to the vulnerable parts of your attacker’s body. With Krav Maga, you will become a walking human weapon.
