At Krav Maga Unyted, we start with our members’ as first priority. Our innovative group classes, whether Krav Maga or Fitness, are designed to be fully scale-able meaning that anyone of any age and ability can come in and take class alongside our most skilled members and athletes. Krav Maga, by it’s very nature, is designed to bring men and women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and athletic ability to a higher level of proficiency in a short amount of time. In our fitness classes, we can modify weight, repetitions, and intensity, or all three, to make the workout suitable to your skill level while maintaining the effectiveness. All of our highly skilled Krav Maga instructors and fitness trainers constantly focus on proper form and technique to ensure maximum power, efficiency, safety, and effectiveness.
Our classes are the most effective form of goal oriented training available, providing results unlike any other self-defense system or fitness workout around. The system of Krav Maga is designed to take the student on a journey with teaching based on principles that are close to our natural reactions and basic movements. By building upon these reactions, we insure that under extreme stress the best techniques come to the surface naturally. We constantly train under stress, whether mental, physical, or both, and put students to the test taking them to a level of performance that they would never expect to achieve. To enhance members’ Krav Maga training, we have designed our entire fitness and fight program around the same principles. No matter what you goals are, Krav Maga Unyted can help you achieve them.
What is Krav Maga?
The most common question we get from people who walk Krav Maga Unyted and see what is going on inside is, “what is Krav Maga?” Krav Maga is a practical martial arts system of self-defense and combat principles developed as a discipline for full contact combat. Designed as a self-defense and offensive system that simultaneously defends against personal attacks of all kinds, while inflicting devastating damage to the opponent,
Krav Maga was initially created by Imi Lichtenfeld during the 1930’s and World War II. As one of the key training and defense systems of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Krav Maga has since evolved to include training for use by special forces and paramilitary teams, as well as police and law enforcement, and the general public. Krav Maga utilizes a system of concepts and principles to quickly and effectively teach individuals of all skill levels practical and applicable self-defense and self-protection skills, for use in situations ranging from combat and fighting to street attacks under high levels of stress.
Founded on real world experience and demands, and based on practical concepts and principles, Krav Maga is primarily focused on the use of natural movements and reactions for defense.
Trainees of Krav Maga are taught in a logical and straightforward fashion, making learning rapid. The natural and intuitive nature of Krav Maga leads to high retention of learned skills, and natural, almost reflexive, deployment in stressful situations. Trainees focus on development of physical fitness and strength while working on principles and technique to overcome and disarm both armed and unarmed attackers, rapidly and effectively resolve ground attacks and fights — all while maintaining a sense of their surroundings and performance under high stress. While weaving in training and physical elements of Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, and Muay Thai, Krav Maga is it’s own systematized martial arts program. Unlike other martial arts programs that emphasize form and technique over outcome, Krav Maga focuses on defending yourself while quickly and effectively devastating your opponent. While initially a military training program, Krav Maga has evolved and expanded to provide training for the general public seeking peace of mind in an increasingly dangerous world, while maintaining it’s prominence as the top training program for special military forces and commando units, advanced law enforcement teams, including SWAT, and private security personnel.

What is Heavybag Training?
Unique to Krav Maga Unyted, Heavybag training combines the best aspects of Performance Training, an intense cardio and strength program, with Krav Maga Combatives (striking techniques), to provide an intense calorie burning fitness experience. This fast-paced 60 minute class provides 35 to 40 minutes of MMA fight inspired punches, kicks, elbows and knees combined with body weight movements to build strength, cardio and muscle endurance. Students are trained in techniques from MMA, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, traditional boxing, and Krav Maga, with an emphasis on speed and constant movement. Students enjoy an intense one – hour workout to great music and energy, and burn between 600 to 1,000 calories per session.
What is Krav Maga Combatives?
Krav Maga Combatives is a high-energy and high-intensity Krav Maga class focused on development of elemental combative and offensive striking development for students of all levels. Krav Maga Combatives students are paired together and utilize Thai pads, punch and kick shields, and focus mitts in high intensity bursts designed to sharpen offensive skills using hands, elbows, knees, and kicks. Krav Maga Combatives is a perfect compliment to both Krav Maga and Performance and Heavybag Training classes, as it helps to increase endurance and fitness levels as well as skill levels that translate throughout our courses. Krav Maga Combatives is recommended to those students who have been training for at least a month and or have prior experience.
What is Intro to Fight?
Intro to Fight is a class designed to take student athletes with little to no prior combat or fight experience to a functional level under stressful situations. This course focuses on development of footwork, vision, punch and kick defenses to build the ability to protect and defend in a street fight or combative attack scenario. In addition, Intro to Fight provides a great workout.
All fight situations are highly controlled with contact, and we train with respect for our partners—no hard hits or bloody noses allowed.
Intro to Fight is an excellent supplement to Krav Maga self-defense classes, greatly improving your effectiveness and ability.
Intro to Fight is recommended to those students who have been training for at least a month and or have prior experience. This class is a must for those students who wish to test for their Green belt and above in the Krav Maga system.
All students are required to have their own fight gear, including 16oz gloves for men or 12 oz for women, headgear, shin guards, a mouthpiece, and groin protection (men). Our Krav Maga Unyted pro shop carries all equipment necessary to participate in this class.
What is the proper footwear for Krav Maga Unyted classes?
At Krav Maga Unyted, we have three training rooms to accommodate our fully packed schedule. Room 1 has a resilient rubberized floor designed specifically to absorb the impact resulting from Performance training strength and conditioning classes. The Room 1 environment lends itself best to shoes that are lightweight and low to the ground for maximum stability and feel of the floor beneath you, and we highly recommend ross-training style shoes to be worn at all times. Rooms 2 and 3 offer floors that are covered wall to wall with high cushion Swain seamless tatami style mats. They are no-shoe environments designed to take advantage of the padding while keeping the floor free from debris and bacteria. Members may train either barefoot or in socks. The no-shoe policy is important as it also provides members the ability to train in ground attacks and defenses in our self-defense classes. Additionally, training either barefoot or with socks provides students the ability to easily pivot when punching and kicking while limiting stress on ankles and knee joints.
