  • My White Belt Story

    My White Belt Story

    If you are still reading, Awesome! So, I finally got the courage to make an appointment. The day of my trial, I wasn’t sure anymore about my decision. I was nervous. I almost regret making it. I started driving and I told myself that I just need to get to the next traffic light, and if I want to, I could then turn around and go back home. When I got to the light, I told myself that I could go one more light. Then I hopped on the freeway and told myself I could turn back at the next exit. I played this game until I got there. I finally parked. I sat in my car. I could still go back home, I thought. But I made it this far so I may as well go in. I didn’t know ....

  • 6 Ways Krav Maga can set your child up for success

    6 ways Krav Maga can help set your child up for success 1. Setting Goals As students advance in training, they increase in our belt ranking system.

  • Ongoing Hygiene Inspections

    Ongoing Hygiene Inspections

    On March 16, 2020, all gyms were closed under New York State Executive order 202.3. To reopen, Krav Maga New York had do demonstrate compliance with CDC and Department of Health guidelines. Prior to our scheduled re-opening we added cleaning protocols, established traffic flows, attendance limits, check in procedures, social distancing guidelines and a mask mandate. We automated our HVAC system, identified fresh air needs, purchased recommended air filters, set ventilation schedules, and invested in commercial grade ultraviolet germicidal irradiation technology. Recognizing that the Department of Health would likely inspect our facility only once, upon re-opening we looked for ....

    Exercise and The COVID Pandemic
    The human immune system is a highly intricate network of cells and molecules designed to keep the host free from infection and disease.
