Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a self-defense and combat system designed for real-world application, emphasizing practical techniques, quick decision-making, and intuitive movements. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its efficiency. It teaches how to prevent, deal with, and overcome all kinds of violence and attacks.

The philosophy behind Krav Maga involves neutralizing threats quickly and effectively, aiming for the most vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body as targets. It also stresses the importance of situational awareness — understanding one's surroundings and identifying potential threats before an attack occurs.

Krav Maga is not just a physical training regimen; it also emphasizes mental toughness, promoting attitudes of perseverance, and fear management. Its straightforward and no-nonsense approach makes it accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, aiming to prepare individuals for any situation that may pose a threat to their safety.

At Valley Self-Defense, all of our instructors have been trained in trauma-informed care by a local trauma-informed educator. We understand that certain moves and techniques can sometimes be empowering and sometimes be traumatic, depending on where you are in your journey of healing. We want to give you confidence, but we don’t want to re-traumatize you. If you have any questions about what we do, please feel free to email us at or text/call us at (651) 877-8236
