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 100thtime! 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, and who stands all of five feet, decided she had enough of being, as the story goes, “threatened, attacked and mugged by thugs because of her size.” 


Because she is a pharmacist, Ms. Bano’s indignities included being “dragged by drug addicts and assaulted.” To keep both herself and her children protected, she started taking Krav Maga lessons. It wasn’t long before Gulshen became a certified Krav Maga instructor and now gives lessons to other young women.


“It’s the only self-defense system that really tackles situations that can happen on the street,” she says. “"I wanted to be in control and know how to protect myself and my loved ones in any situation, and now I know Krav Maga. Your size, age, fitness or background shouldn’t be a barrier. With the right training, you are able to defend yourself and go home safely."


We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
