Krav Maga for Teens

12 to 16 years old

Come and see why so many people are hooked on krav maga!

Children and teenagers are often more likely to experience physical attacks and verbal confrontations. Teenagers live in a middle stage between childhood and adulthood, where they start to face more challenges by themselves with less adult support. Therefore, practical self-defense training will help them deal with situations that they may run into in their everyday lives.

Common situations that we practice how to deal with include slaps, punches, kicks, shirt grabbing, neck grabbing, and being thrown to the ground.

We also train on how to stand up to bullies, avoiding fights and solving conflicts verbally, as well as getting away, and what to do after getting away.

We are dedicated to helping youths succeed on their own terms. In krav maga they will be part of a group, but progress as an individual. They will learn how to challenge themselves and to work with a partner to help each other succeed. We believe that this makes a good foundation for teenagers to experience mastery and success in their activities, and through that, build real and lasting confidence.

Stay safe - Keep fit - Have Fun!
