    The Safe Way to Get Fit

    Krav Maga . The first time you came across those two words, you probably thought they sound exotic and mysterious, right? In fact, what they represent is quite simple and straightforward. The words Krav Maga literally translate to contact-combat . The experience, though, translates to much more than that - a full transformation of mindset, body and attitude not achievable anywhere else. As students learn how to defend themselves in real-life situations, they get the bonus of getting in great physical shape. But wait – there’s more! Krav Maga also focuses the mind, relieves stress, builds confidence. Krav Maga moves are not complicated to learn. Our ....

    Krav Maga Street Smart

    At KMNY, we are proud of our widespread appeal to “everyday people.” As our website says, “No matter your age, ability, or fitness level,” we welcome you with open arms into our friendly family of instructors and students. We love nothing more than seeing all types of folks walk through our doors, whether it’s for the first time or for the 100 th time! That’s why we got a big kick (pun absolutely intended) out of reading about a very cool lady across the pond in England who embodies the “everyday people” we embrace. A woman by the name of Gulshen Bano, who hails from a United Kingdom town just outside the city of Birmingham, ....

    The Art of Self Defense

    “The Art of Self-Defense” is being called a “dark horse” for best summer movie. It’s a feel good dark comedy that has the potential to make you feel great. One reviewer called it “a strong early contender for best film of the year”, and after After 21 reviews on film fan site Rotten Tomatoes , it had a 95% percent approval rating. Show biz news Variety describes the movie this way : In this machismo-critiquing cult comedy, Jesse Eisenberg plays a wimp whose desire to man up compels him to join an off-kilter karate studio. And yeah, the movie is funny and clever and dark, and it pokes fun at “toxic masculinity.” ....

    Women's Self Defense Krav Maga Style- Part 4 Putting It All Together: Sheep or Sheepdog?

    Congratulations. If you have made it this far and you are still reading our Women’s Self Defense article series, you have at least taken the initiative to learn more about your own self-defense. That is the first step in making yourself more prepared to deal with the violent world we live in and moving along the continuum from sheep to Sheepdog. If you have read my 3 previous Women’s Self Defense articles and have not tuned me out yet, I am guessing that you have at least accepted the possibility that you may be involved in a violent confrontation someday. In our previous articles we discussed Situational Awareness; The Predator Optic and the Attack Cycle; and The Switch: The ....

    Women's Self Defense Krav Maga Style- Part 3- The "Switch" (The Attack and Your Response)

    Authors Note: This article deals with the situation where you are being threatened with violence or actually being physically attacked by a predator. By this point your Situational Awareness has been outmaneuvered and you are being threatened or you are taking damage. The opportunity for avoidance is lost, your reaction time is compressed, the fight is on. Many experts offer opinions on whether or not victims should fight back or comply with a predator. I do not presume to decide for any person which course of conduct is “best”. That is your decision. I do offer my own philosophy that if you are going to fight there are two thresholds to consider seriously: If a predator tries ....

    The Predator Optic and The Attack Cycle- Ladies Only Self Defense Classes| Lethal Ladies, Part 2

    Authors Note: This article deals with real world violence, not the sanitized violence of TV shows. I have been involved in the investigation of over 100 homicides and countless assaults and rapes. When violent assaults occur on the street, they are immediate, ferocious and bloody. I have described this difference between what we think violence will look like and what it actually does look like as comparing a drawing to a photograph. This article deals with the reality, not the drawing. Forewarned is Forearmed. Unlike the animal kingdom where predators will attack primarily for food, territory or self-defense, human predators can have several different motivations. In this article we ....

    Situational Awareness | Women's Self Defense- Lethal Ladies, Part 1

    We often hear about “Situational Awareness” and the role it can play in Women’s Self Defense. When I train women clients in Krav Maga, I always include a running dialogue about awareness, predator optics, victim selection and strategies to minimize our “attractiveness” as victims. Awareness skills are not as common as you might think among the general population and need to be developed through practice and exercise, just like any other skill. We increase our ability to notice things in our environment by purposely doing so and making it habit. After some training in what to look for, I give my trainees “homework” to both sharpen their observation ....

    A while back, a local news representative was looking for a new fitness adventure and ended up at our door. She concluded – based on the title she used for her article – that Krav Maga lessons offer a killer work out and life skills. Here’s some of what the she had to say: I’m all for strengthening my core, toning my muscles and getting my heart pumping, but when a fitness instructor looks at me and says now I’m going to choke you, I’m out the door. At least, I thought I’d be, but then I signed up for Krav Maga lesson. The self-defense martial art combines quick instinctive strikes and kicks with real life situations (hence, the chocking ....
