KRAV MAGA Reflex Development (RD)
After you complete the Std Krav classes at least 1 time & complete a minimum of 80 classes you are eligible to start attending our Krav Maga Reflex Development (RD) Classes. In these classes you start applying what you have learned in more complex combinations and scenarios involving armed and unarmed attackers. These classes will further refine your reflexes and ability to protect yourself against much larger, stronger and more athletic attackers. Once you complete 4 RD classes in addition to the above requirements you are eligible to test for you yellow-belt.

Some Key Krav Maga Principles Include:
Techniques that are easy to learn, easy to remember, and easy to apply in many situations.
Simple movements that are instinctive and natural to the body.
Effective and efficient techniques used to neutralize the opponent as quickly as possible.
Counter attacking as soon as possible (or attacking preemptively).
Simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers (blocking and striking at the same time).
Bursting in explosively and aggressively to overwhelm the opponent.
Targeting attacks to the body’s most vulnerable points.
Maintaining awareness of surroundings while dealing with the threat.

Techniques are constantly being evaluated and improved. Full contact training and real life lessons form the basis of the constant re-evaluation of techniques. This keeps us on the cutting edge of reality based training. Training may also cover situational awareness to develop an understanding of one’s surroundings, understanding the psychology of a street confrontation, and identifying potential threats before an attack occurs.

Our first time students, lacking any previous training, are often surprised at how easy Krav Maga is to learn. It uses the fewest techniques possible to defend against the most situations. Students include men and women of all ages, fitness levels and backgrounds. Students have a good time while learning Krav Maga, a modern reality based martial arts system proven to work.
