Krav Maga’s Women’s Self Defense
Classes for women focus on abduction, assault, and rape prevention techniques and tactics. Learn to spot danger signs and how to defend yourself using verbal dissuasions and through physical self defense. This program teaches you how to defend against common chokes, grabs, bearhugs, and other attacks, including fighting on the ground and when confronted by a weapon. We emphasize realistic scenarios and realistic defenses!
The Krav Maga Houston Women Only Program has been carefully developed with valuable input from law enforcement officials, criminal prosecutors, psychologists, physicians, and rape prevention counselors. The program deals specifically with how and where women are commonly attacked. Women are taught how to safely and effectively fend off an attacker with punches, elbows, knees, and kicks.
More importantly, women learn how to defend themselves from worst case scenarios (i.e. where they are already in a choke, bearhug, and headlock, whether standing up or on the ground.)The program incorporates training methods to build womens’ fighting spirit and to train them how to respond both mentally and physically in a time of need, eliminating the danger of “freezing” or “shutting down” in confrontations. Women receive hands on training in actual locations, ATM’s, parking lots, etc. and are attacked by instructors dressed in full protective padding in order to experience what a real attack feels like.
FAST training is extremely powerful for women and is just one of the many training tools we offer at Krav Maga Houston. Over the course of the seminar we learn different threat levels and responses to each threat level from verbal commands and posture to escalating all the way to violence if necessary. What you see in the video to the right is the final day of the seminar and one of the women confronting the attacker with full contact, speed and power! If the video will gets your adrenaline pumping, imagine what being in that moment will do for you!
