Krav Maga is the simplest and most effective method of Self Defense and Violence Prevention. Krav Maga provides the individual with the tools necessary to develop and enhance their natural instincts and capabilities.
From both physical and mental aspects, Krav Maga teaches the student how to react to different types of potential and actual physical attack situations - events that are becoming more common in the modern world. This includes physical attacks, choking, and weapon threats involving knives and guns, among others. Understanding the risks, combined with Krav Maga’s practical approach, in most cases allows the trained individual to avoid violence if possible and effective defense if necessary.
Moreover, training in Krav Maga will improve your overall physical fitness, self-confidence, self- control and will instill important life values such as discipline, perseverance, respect for others and the ambition to strive for excellence.
Krav Maga is for people of all ages and sexes and is appropriate for ordinary civilians as well as those in defense and security. Krav Maga will protect you and your children.
We invite you and your family to join us for a free trial class.
The organization was established by Erez Sharabi and his senior students, in order to preserve the principles and spirit of Krav Maga training passed on the by the founder, Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde-Or) and his distinctive student Eli Avikzar. The founders of the organization are currently instructors for Krav Maga and experienced in both civilian and defense fields. The founder’s deep familiarity with the Krav Maga technique inspired them to create a new establishment while preserving Krav Maga’s principles. TKM will strive to develop, enhance and improve the method based on the principles of Krav Maga and the spirit of its founders. Within the organization there are dozens of black belt members certified with both the Wingate Institute and the Israeli Defense Forces.
The activity in the Great Neck branch of TKM New York is divided by age groups and is appropriate for children aged five and older, through adulthood. In keeping with the goal of teaching self-defense skills while elevating the fitness level, the activities are tailored to each age group with appropriate discipline and instruction. At the facility, we strongly believe anyone can do it and we strongly urge everyone to do it, since physical fitness and knowing to defend oneself are invaluable. One sometimes overlooked added benefit for children and teenagers is the confidence boost often required to tackle difficult situations and, if confronted with growing epidemic of bullying, having the tools necessary to extinguish such behavior at the outset. For adults it is a great workout while acquiring very practical tools for unexpected situations which call for self-defense and violence suppression. For students of all ages, it is building comradery with other likeminded concerned members of the community. When people come to try out Krav Maga, what often times makes them stay is the people they train with, both at the student and instructor levels.
