FREE! Alpha Krav Maga
Apr 27 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Black belts Bert Witte and Vlad Gotkis will be conducting a Children’s Krav Maga seminar utilizing common techniques taught in Krav Maga classes. Krav Maga is Hebrew for “Contact Combat” and is the official hand to hand fighting system utilized by the Israel Defense Forces. Children who train in a less combative and controlled version of Krav Maga learn how to utilize their reflexive actions to certain physical situations that are designed to allow them to act and react in a self defense situation. Physical drills as well as awareness drills are the main focus of self defense training for Alpha Krav Maga kids.

Additional benefits that kids will get from the study of Krav Maga/Martial Arts:

  • Focus
  • Respect
  • Confidence building
  • Overall character development

Sunday, April 27 • 2:00-3:00pm
Free Seminar!
