Krav Maga is more than just getting into shape; you are learning a skill of self-defense AND you meet some really cool, like-minded people in the process. I joined Krav Maga Raleigh because I was really tired of owning a gym membership and never using it; a workout should be fulfilling both to the body and mind; that's what I have taken from my experience with Krav Maga Raleigh.

I have been a member of KMR for over five years. I have seen it grow and change a lot since the beginning and I can say the same for myself. I have grown more confident, and training keeps me motivated to eat healthier and continue working on my fitness goals. KMR is full of great instructors, students and friends. It's my home away from home, I love it there!

Krav Maga

Krav Maga is the fighting system of the Israeli Military. It emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios to get results from the very first class. Krav Maga is taught to military, law enforcement, and civilians all over the world, and is proven to be the most effective fighting system. Krav Maga is designed to be appropriate for everybody, regardless of gender, size, fitness level, or previous experience.


Women’s Self-Defense

Krav Maga Raleigh offers women’s only workshops and classes that teach women to react and respond to common threats and attacks such as chokes, grabs, and attacks on the ground. Because Krav Maga focuses on the most effective techniques and most efficient training methods, the classes are can take someone with absolutely no experience and, in a matter of hours, give her the physical and mental tools to defend herself.



Krav Maga classes are also a great full body workout. Throwing punches, kicks and knees is a great way to burn calories and build muscle, and because you are blasting pads the whole class, you don’t even notice that you’re getting in incredible shape. In addition to the Krav Maga classes, we have a separate fitness program at Krav Maga Raleigh that focuses on high intensity workouts using a combination of body weight exercises and equipment. These classes are much more than just brute force conditioning, they develop athletic skills and improve movement so you can train harder for longer.
