krav maga levels

The system is designed for men, women, and children of all ages, shapes and sizes, and is limited only in ones mind as the body is subjected to exhausting, demanding conditions.

The main focus revolves around techniques that are easy, effective and efficient. It is the Official Hand-to-Hand Combat System of the Israeli Defense Forces. Developed for the Israeli military, it is used by civilians and law enforcement agencies worldwide. This realism-based system is designed to teach practical self-defence, ranging widely from regular to worst case scenarios, in the shortest possible span of time.

Learn to defend against common strikes, chokes, grabs and bear hugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, sticks and bats. Learn to adjust to different levels of confrontations including shock and surprise attacks, violent encounters and many other situations.


Level 1

Our Level 1 class is designed for new and beginner students. This entry-level class offers instruction in the basics of Krav Maga self defence. Fighting stances and movement, punches, knees, elbows and kicks included in our stand up and ground fighting positions. Students will learn to defend against punches, chokes, grabs and headlocks. Students train on average 2-3 hours weekly.

Level 2 ( Yellow Belt Students )

In level 2, students continue application and development of techniques learned in level 1. Level 2 classes incorporate more intricate striking, a variety of chokes, headlocks and bearhugs and defences with counterattacks. Sparring and ground fighting basics (also included in our fighting/sparring classes), are also introduced in Level 2 helping students sharpen their striking and defensive skills.

Level 3 ( Orange Belt Students )

Krav Maga level 3 classes are a culmination of the previous levels. Students hone application of their skills and their understanding of Krav Maga self defence. Students learn more advanced self-defense techniques involving defense against weapons such as guns and sticks.

Level 4 ( Green Belt Students )

Krav Maga level 4 class brings together the mindset and skill set of the previous levels. More in depth tactics and advanced techniques teach students the realities of high-threat weapon defenses, more complex multiple attacker scenarios  and application of more advanced ground fighting defences.

Level 5 ( Blue And Brown Belt Students )

Advanced Krav Maga level 5 class is our most advanced class. Students learn and effectively apply our curriculum of fighting, ground fighting, third-party protection, and a large variety of weapons defences.

Testing through our system

All Active monthly members are eligible for testing. A minimum of 70-80 Level1 and 70-80 Level 2 classes within a 6-12 month training period is a prerequisite for testing eligibility. Level 3, 4 and 5 also require a minimum of 90 or more classes within a 9-16 months training period. On the testing day, a review will be performed by all participants and an evaluation by the testing Instructor(s). *More details and/or restrictions may apply


Krav Maga attempts to simplify fighting and make it more reflexive by introducing only a small number of stances.


Highly emphasized on basic strikes which are useful in almost every situation.


While Krav Maga does use kicks, it focuses on efficient, low-risk kicks. More advanced and risky kicks are taught at high levels, but use of them is discouraged. They are primarily just taught so that practitioners are able to recognize them in case they are facing an opponent with a background in kick-heavy martial arts, such as Taekwondo.


Krav Maga uses all of the tools available, including the head. All uses of the head are covered at the Green Belt level.

Blocking Techniques

 Our practitioners are taught to go from defending to attacking as quickly as possible, and most blocking techniques are designed to facilitate this.

Throws and Take-downs

Throws are not covered much in Krav Maga, because the system stresses staying off the ground.

Ground Fighting

While we stress staying off the ground at all costs, it accepts that you may eventually have no choice but to fight there.

Gun and Knife Defenses

In addition to the illustrated techniques, realistic defenses against guns and knifes are an integral part of our training.
