WHAT DOES A TYPICAL KRAV MAGA CLASS LOOK LIKE ?
The format of the class may vary depending on the material covered, but typically the format will be as follows:
1 – Opening the class (2-3 mins)
The instructors will ask the students to form a line and will welcome everyone to the training (sometimes we start with 5 deep breaths for concentration), we then bow and say “KIDA” ( Hebrew for “bow”). This is the only formal etiquette in Krav Maga.
2 – Warm up (10 mins)
Some games involving cardio and stretching along with some bodyweight exercises (depending on the lesson subject for that week). This is a great way to get Juniors warmed up while improving their fitness and make sure they won’t get an injury later on.
3 – Main Lesson (20 mins)
Main lesson content will vary from lesson to lesson, working on balance, co-ordination, team work and obviously self-defence in which a game format will be mixed with one to one tuition and cooperation.
4 – Final Exercise (10 mins)
This will give the students a chance to put into practice what they have learnt throughout the lesson, using a decision-making scenario that will give JSKM students plenty of exercise, not to mention have a lot of fun.
5 – Closing the Class (2-3 mins)
The same as the start, we’ll line up, sometimes take 5 deep breaths, the instructor will pick the Excell students of the class and will ask us all to bow saying “KIDA“.
Krav Maga is the most practical and effective self-defence system available to young people today…
“Amazing self-defence training for children, brilliant for fitness, confidence and friendships. I have noticed a difference in my son’s confidence as well his fitness. I can’t wait until my youngest can start!”
