Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No traditional katas or martial arts rituals. More information can be found on the Krav Maga Worldwide site.
Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real time self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.
Krav Maga in both Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Virginia teaches how avoid an assault entirely by self awareness and seeing the danger early. A potential victim’s way of carrying herself or reacting to initial confrontation can dictate an attacker’s willingness to follow through with his plans. “Don’t Be A Target ! and Don’t be a victim” are the words of Martial Arts Master and Krav Maga Insructor Tracy Lee Thomas.
The dynamics teaching concepts of Krav Maga is owned and operated by the only Krav Maga certified licensed academy in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Virginia. Tracy Lee Thomas owns and operates Krav Maga schools in Hampton Roads serving four locations.
