Krav Maga Calgary   -   Where to Learn Krav Maga In Calgary

Speak to anyone about Martial Arts and they will have a personal view on what fighting art is the best. The rapid increase in the popularity of MMA and other cage fighting sports proves that people are fascinated by the martial arts and what is actiually the best art to learn.

One of my favorite martial arts is Krav Maga. Some might say it is not even a martial art, but actually a proper self defense system. Whatever you clasify it as, it really kicks butt (excuse the pun) in attack AND defense.

Krav Maga is a form of physical combat, a ruthless fighting style that include proper hand to hand combat, ground wrestling and powerful striking. You really are tought all facets of self defense.

A friend of mine asked me the other day "where could I learn Krav Maga in Calgary". Strange question I know, but after a long dicussion about the art he was extremely interested. There is not to many training centres in Calgary, but that should not stop you from finding them, or even getting a system of Krav Maga that you can use to teach yourself at home.

Don't just see this style as another fighting style concentrating only on Kata's and grading. You will learn practical methods of self defense, attack and turning a defense into an attack. Not knowing where to learn Krav Maga in Calgary, is defnitely no excuse not to do something. In some countries this art is considered a way of life and people feel empowered by the knowledge that they can defend themselves. I think my friend got the hint.

Some Techniques

Like most other martial arts and fighting styles you will also find proper techniques that form the basis of this style. The style of fighting and the use of everyday items around you makes Krav Maga extremely effective against almost any attack. You are taught to use your first reponse in an attack as part of your defense.

Knowing all the vulnerable areas that can be targetted in an attack usually gives the Krav Maga student the upper hand. You will learn to attack the eyes, the groin, specific joints in the body and so on. Your first reaction is crucial in ensuring you turn your defense into the counter attack.

Krav Maga Calgary

When looking for a training centre in Calgary consider the following. You need to find a gym or fitness centre that have space for the training (an aerobics area and so on). You will find that in most of these types of centres there will be a teacher of Krav Maga or a contact that knows someone.

Self defense fitness classes are usually integrated with other fitness routines and in some centres there are extensive training programs that are targeted to a variaty of age groups. This will include defense against all types of weapon and sharp objects. Anyone interested can be taught.

Krav Maga Online

Don't forget that you can also learn Krav Maga in the comfort of your home. There are a variaty of training systems avaiable online and you can teach yourself at your own pace. These course are extremely effective and should not be discounted in any way.
