Krav Maga Private Lessons with IKM San Diego
Krav Maga (Hebrew for “contact battle”) is the national martial art of Israel, developed in Eastern Europe in the 1930’s and imported into Israel fifteen years later by its creator, Imi Lichtenfeld. Combining elements of wrestling and boxing as well as eastern martial arts, Krav Maga is marked by speed and precision of attack. Since it developed out of street fighting, Krav Maga takes a very pragmatic approach to each combat situation, including elements of psychology and threat management in its instruction. At IKM San Diego, we teach Krav Maga to San Diego residents that are looking for an open class as well as a private lesson environment.

Women are encouraged to study Krav Maga as well. It is sometimes difficult for women to find themselves served in co-ed classes. Hence, special women’s-only self defense classes are available through IKM San Diego. These classes introduce women to Krav Maga technique, while still emphasizing more general instruction in keeping the mind clear under stressful circumstances. Because attitude is of crucial importance in real-life violent encounters, these IKM San Diego classes emphasize pragmatic means for finding safety, disarming the opponent, and refusing to give up during an encounter. Taught by Benjamin Halcewicz, the women’s only self defense classes at IKM San Diego are designed to provide women with a sense of security, self-esteem, and peace of mind by giving them the ability to defend themselves and to assess dangerous situations. IKM San Diego also offers private lessons for women. For more information on Krav Maga private lessons or class schedule contact IKM San Diego at (858) 349-8795.
