Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew) is an effective, modern, and dynamic self-defense and fighting system. It is practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape or size. Training in Krav Maga is intended to help avoid and survive worst case scenarios. There are no uniforms, traditions or elaborate choreography. According to Krav Maga Founder Imi Litchenfeld, we train in Krav Maga “so that one may walk in peace.”

Krav Maga Wake Forest (KMWF) is not just martial arts; it is a friendly, supportive community. Krav Maga is the easiest form of self-defense to learn, yet it provides the best results and an intense workout. Staff members are trained at the Krav Maga Institute in Los Angeles, ensuring that all instructors are tested and approved to teach across the various student levels. KM levels mirror a belt system. By level 7, students have achieved the coveted “black belt.” Krav Maga classes are co-ed and offer students the flexibility to rotate in and out of different level classes that they have mastered. Krav Maga also includes military and law enforcement training, further setting it apart as the best self-defense system in the world.

      “Embraced by the FBI and SWAT teams alike, Krav Maga is also a staple of high-end gyms across the globe, where a faster-paced and less-combative version provides a workout that could literally save your life.” TIME magazine
