1. Isn’t Self-Defense and Fighting for Guys?
Training and Self-Defense FAQs
Four Common Questions About Krav Maga for Women
Breaking stereotypes and building strong, confident, beautiful women
Although it varies across cultures, most women are taught to be kind, nurturing, helpful and polite, even to strangers, and, sometimes, even when it is detrimental or dangerous to them. Our goal is to help you learn to push past social programming when it is necessary, and act to protect yourself or a loved one.
KMG strongly believes in empowering women and teaching them practical skills and knowledge with which they can navigate the world. We believe that every person, man or woman, has the right to a self-defense education, regardless of his or her physical abilities and in spite of social rules.
Around the world, KMG has female instructors and experts working together with their male colleagues. These women are skilled and yet make no compromises about their femininity or identities as women. They are mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, aunts, and in-laws: they are beautiful, sexy, confident, motherly, tough, powerful, elegant, and strong. They come from all walks of life but are brought together by the common goal of being able to defend themselves and finding confidence and power through KMG training.
2. Do I really need to learn self-defense? I live in a safe city!
“It’s better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.” – Jackie Joyner-Kersee
From its global involvement in the field of security and safety, KMG understands that the incidences of danger and threats are far more common than people expect. A typical phrase you hear from a victim of an attack or harassment is “I didn’t think it could happen to me.”This is not to say that we encourage paranoia. Far from it. Our goal is to develop emotional perseverance, effective decision-making under stress, trust in natural instincts, becoming less of a target for violence, and living in confidence instead of fear.
3. How hard is it to learn Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is easy to start learning, and designed to be immediately usable
The KMG Krav Maga system of training is built on natural movements and instinctive reactions. Our goal is to give students practical, usable skills in the shortest time possible. Furthermore, our system is designed to be beneficial for women: Our techniques and training are never a contest of strength or power. Our system is designed for dealing with attackers that are bigger and stronger, using techniques, tactics, and determination training.
Although the system is easy to start learning, it takes regular practice over time to really build the muscle memory and train your reactions. The good news is, however, that our training is an investment that goes beyond self-defense and public safety. When you train self-defense, you are training a life skill that goes beyond dealing with dangerous situations: it builds confidence, awareness, discipline, and personal strength for dealing with the challenges of everyday life. Training the way we do empowers and uplifts: it gives us strength of body, mind, and heart.4. Will I get hurt in training?
With KMG Krav Maga, safety is our absolute priority.
All our training is done in safe, controlled environment, with the highest safety standards. We give people the time and space needed to develop their skills and adapt to the learning. Krav Maga is as safe as any other martial arts form. If you follow the instructor’s directions and mind the safety rules, the chances of being injured during a class are as remote and even less than for any other sport.
For all who train with us, we hope you never have to use what we teach you. But if you ever find yourself in a bad situation, we hope you use these skills to save your life.
Come and join us for an afternoon of learning and fun!
