About us

Welcome to Keller Self Defense and Krav Maga


What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is the Hebrew term for “Contact Combat”. It is a self-defense system developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient and brutal counter attacks. In Krav Maga, we not only focus on fighting techniques but we also focus a lot on situational awareness, and the psychology of both the attacker and the defender in a real world confrontation and we provide training methods that help students be able to react in a time of crisis or confrontation.

Krav Maga is designed to be practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape, or size. There is no sport involved, it is all about surviving and its based on simplicity and realism .

One of the key aspects of Krav Maga that makes it so effective is the training methods used. Once you learn a self defense technique then you will run through various stress inducing drills designed to help you overcome freezing or locking up.
