I have been training with Sensei Roy Elghanayan for close to three years now and can truly say I am in the best shape of my life. Sensei Roy has pushed me to work harder then I ever thought my body could handle. Here you will learn true lethal self defense skills that are used in the Israeli Special Forces Training. The beginner classes give you basic fundamentals of self defense and prepare you for the intermediate/advanced classes that will train you to defend yourself in a real attack. It is a joy to come to come to class and train with my REKM family. Not only have I made good training partners to practice with, I have made close friends. Everyone pushes each other to be the best they can be. I would recommend this dojo to anyone who wants to learn true authentic krav maga and isn't afraid to be pushed outside of their limits. If you are serious about martial arts, REKM is the place to be!

What defines the character of a person? How would you know what you're capable of if you've never been tested? What if there is a crisis and you have to deal with it to protect not just yourself but a loved one? "How does a bull, when a lion's coming after him, and he has to protect the whole herd-how does he know what powers he's got? He knows because it has taken him a long time to become powerful. Like the bull, a man doesn't become heroic all of a sudden,either. He must train through the winter and make ready"- Epictetus It may sound intense but that is Sensei Roy's passion for the art Krav Maga. He wants you to learn, he wants you train, he wants you to become BETTER than you were yesterday. All you have to do is show up and be ready. I will admit some days are harder than others, but "if it were easy, then everyone would be doing it" ;). That's what separates REKM from other dojos and when you're there, you feel it. If you put in the time, the work and the focus-what you get back is invaluable.

Senei Roy is the BEST! His attention to detail, proper technique, and properly applying the technique of KM is outstanding and in my opinion, second to none. Senei Roy teaches all levels of classes, even the beginner classes, which shows me how much he cares about making sure everyone properly learns KM fundamentals and it helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page. I appreciated my time training with him and the rest of the staff and just wished I could have continued training there. Linda, one of the instructors, is an awesome instructor as well. I appreciated her attention to detail and explaining the reason why actions or motions are executed a certain way. The support staff is awesome as well. Everyone is very helpful. The studio is clean, bright, and a great atmosphere for training. I would highly recommend REKM to anyone looking to train/experience KM. If you are serious about KM, you might as well learn from the best. A huge Thank You to Sensei Roy, Linda, Jess, and the rest of the Staff!

Very good classes.It was my first martial art place to try and I liked it. I got fit in about 2 months and the training provided is very helpful. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Now, I can walk more confident on the street at night :) I recommend this place!

I love this place! I have trained in other areas of martial arts and contact sports and I get the best all around training at REKM. I started 6 months ago and this is the best decision I have made since I moved to LA. Sensei Roy is tough but it has made me stronger both physically and mentally. I am in much better shape working with him and I know that if I stay here I can only get better. I have met some great friends here as well. This is not a gym. It is a community. Everyone is working hard toward their own goals but has great attitudes and is very welcoming. I recommend joining the club....it will change you for the better.

I tried various martial arts & forms of self defense over the course of my life & never stuck with anything because I felt it wasn't practical. The first time I went to REKM, I was kicking & punching a pad held by another person & then doing the same for them. I knew then that this was the place for me. Especially as a woman, it is important to know what it feels like to be hit in a friendly environment so you don't panic if something bad does happen. I like that there are an equal number of men & women here & that there are also women at pretty advanced stages. The dojo also has a shower if you want to clean up right after class & the place is always very clean. I work for Equinox & our facilities are kept very clean, so I know how much work it takes to maintain that. Sensei Roy's qualifications are beyond compare & he teaches many of the classes. One other thing I have to mention is the feeling of family here. Everyone is very welcoming & also steps up to help you learn. I highly recommend REKM for anyone!

Roy Elghanayan's Krav Maga is the rarest of finds in the martial arts world. I will begin with Roy himself, finding a world class martial artist and former hand to hand combat instructor for the Israeli special forces is unique enough, add to that years of teaching experience both before during and after he served in the Israeli military and official certifications as a Krav Maga and Combat Fitness Instructor from Israel's prestigious Wingate Institute and you have the ideal teacher, one who's ability to teach matches his eye-popping abilities and extensive knowledge base. Which leads us to the martial arts system he teaches. Roy teaches the same Krav Maga taught to elite special forces units in the IDF. This alone makes his system fascinating to learn and VERY effective in real life situations. He has taken this system, already renowned the world over for its simplicity and effectiveness, and given it a touch of the exotic by combining it with Israeli Ju Jitsu. This variant of Japanese Ju Jitsu is quite effective in its own right. Taking these two systems and combining them to enhance the effectiveness and versatility of special forces Krav Maga, while still keeping the system simple and easy to teach, is a triumph of martial arts system development. The best way I can describe the system is the it feels "just right". Which is how I feel about his school. REKM in Los Angeles strikes a balance that is difficult to come by when shopping for a martial arts school. It is large enough that you get to practice techniques on both men and women of various size and body structure, yet remains small enough to keep something of a family feel and ensure adequate attention from the instructors (often Roy himself) and avoid leaving the student feeling like they are lost in a crowd. The school is kept clean, there is a small but well-designed bathroom and shower. The changing and storage area has a security camera so you don't have to worry about your belongings while you train. Parking is generally not a problem and the equipment is well maintained and adequate for everything that is taught at the school. In short, REKM in Los Angeles is the school I have been seeking for much of my adult life. Now that I am here you will have to drag me out kicking and screaming because I know if I leave I will never find another one like it. I Hope people find this review informative.

I loved this place! So, not only is the staff amazing and caring and cool, but they actually CARE about their facility and keeping it spotless, including the bathrooms and shower! It seemed as if everyone who walked through the doors showed each other respect and showed respect for the facility as well. They offer a great schedule for everyone to attend classes, and when you aren't in a current class, you can hang out and use the equipment and mats as long as you'd like. I felt comfortable and confident here. I would rather go to REKM than any gym in LA! The only reason why I stopped going to my boxing classes is because I relocated to the Valley...I am only hoping to find a place like REKM out near me to attend!
