Here's What Makes Texas Krav Maga Different From The Average Martial Arts School...

Being physically and mentally prepared to handle confrontation is why so many people, as well as hundreds of law enforcement agencies and elite military units train in Krav Maga… it works when lives are on the line! 

Krav Maga’s techniques are battlefield-tested and proven to quickly eliminate threats. The moves are all simple to perform and work powerfully with your body’s natural instincts which makes Krav Maga easy to learn, regardless of age, physical ability or experience.

Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. 

How do we do that? Well, unlike traditional martial arts, in Krav Maga there’s no time wasted on katas or forms, ancient rituals, tournaments, impractical weapons, or outdated techniques. All of our time is spent with one goal in mind: Teaching you to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is an effective, modern, and dynamic self-defense and fighting system. It is designed to be practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape, or size. The techniques expand on your natural instincts to develop skills quickly and effectively, while enabling you to address attacks under any scenario. You will learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones, while gaining increased awareness and instinctive reflexes.


Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew) was developed in the 1950s, combining the most effective techniques and philosophy from various martial arts and fight training. It was originally taught to the Israeli Army, and instruction for civilians began in the late 70s. Today, Krav Maga continues to expand, refine, and grow meeting new threats with new, effective solutions.
