Train SMARTER, not harder! Proper rest should be a key part of your workout regimen. Avoid overtraining! http://ow.ly/Kpj3V
Overtraining syndrome occurs in athletes who train beyond the body's ability to recover and results in decreased performance.

Did you know our instructors must have successfully completed, and passed, a rigorous 3 phase course consisting of over 180 hours in order to become certified KMG instructors? Their skills are put to the test as they are pushed physically and mentally! Just like many professional certifications they must maintain their training by completing instructor updates every year. This ensures that they are teaching YOU the most current and effective techniques! We applaud all our instructors and assistant instructors for all the hard work and dedication they have put in over the years! Find out more here: http://ow.ly/Kpm9M

I LOVE Krav Maga and this training facility. I signed up myself and two kids (teen age girl and 23 year old son) for the foundation classes. Krav Maga is the most interesting and challenging self defense there is. The very patient instructors are amazing and give you all the personal attention you need (I seem to need quite a bit). Be warned- you will sweat profusely and be pushed to your limits. You will wake up the next morning with bruises and aches and you will LOVE EVERY SECOND OF IT. Thank you to all the folks at First Defense Krav Maga !

While we're sorry that you woke up aching all over, it sounds like it was worth it, Ellen! We love hearing that you and your two kids are feeling like you're being challenged and that you're learning a lot. Anytime you need any more personal attention, let us know -- that's what we're here for! -The Team at First Defense

After looking for Krav Maga (self-defense) training -and finding only a handful of places offering it- First Defense stood out from all the rest due to their amazing head instructor and positive student atmosphere. I quickly fell in love with everything Krav Maga and everything about this studio. I walked in looking to protect myself and I found an amazing Krav Maga family and am now on the road to being a fully certified Krav Maga instructor thanks to First Defense. Come in and arm yourself, have fun and get a great work out -but most of all sleep easy knowing you are a true fighter.

I take Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and Judo classes at First Defense. All three are led by knowledgeable, practiced, and thorough instructors. It is a great and safe atmosphere for beginner through advanced students. I recommend highly First Defense Martial Arts Center.

I love this school. The school is family oriented and the instruction is amazing. I am a big guy and have already lost 60lbs. :-) Come in for a trial class.
