Practice Real World Fighting Skills in Intro to Fight
Intro to Fight, our proprietary self-defense sparring class, will help you get to that place of total physical and mental fitness faster. When you’re ready to take your Krav Maga training to the next level, Intro to Fight is the next logical step. It’s brutal, badass, empowering and energizing—all packed into a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment. Whether you’ve been with us for a single month or multiple years, you’ll have fun and feel comfortable while practicing your real world self-defense techniques in this comprehensive class.
You will need gear for this class — all of which can be purchased in our Krav Maga Unyted pro shop if need be, from 16-ounce boxing gloves (men) and 12-ounce gloves (women), to full-face headgear, mouth guards, shin guards and groin protection (men). We promise it’s not scary – the gear you’ll use in Intro to Fight provides another layer of protection while striking and defending.
As you work on Krav Maga skill drills with your partner—throwing and defending against punches, kicks, elbows and knees in realistic combinations you might encounter in a fight—experienced instructors are on hand to teach you to control your power while maintaining proper form. Even beginners can relax and have a good time without worrying about getting hurt.
To keep things interesting, most classes include action and reaction drills in addition to skills practice. And every session wraps up with at least 15 minutes of sparring. The focus is on manageable speed and power when connecting to reduce anxiety and the chance of injury.
Intro to Fight is a must if you want to move up in the Krav Maga Unyted belt system. While our basic Krav Maga classes provide a little bit of everything, we don’t begin incorporating sparring until you reach the green belt level. If you want to test higher than orange, you’ll need the additional fight practice you’ll receive in Intro to Fight. Though your Krav Maga instructor will let you know when he or she thinks you are ready, most students have grasped the basics required by the end of their first month of training.
