Krav Maga is increasingly becoming a popular way for women to learn self-defense and benefit from a full-body workout. Our Krav Maga classes are available in our state of the art fitness facility in Severna Park, Maryland.
Every woman knows the fear of walking alone in a secluded place after dark. It is an unfortunate reality of our world today that women have to take extra measures to keep themselves safe. Because of this, Rockwell Fitness in Severna Park is proud to offer Krav Maga classes to its members. Krav Maga is an incredibly practical way for women aged 10+ to learn self-defense in a safe and approachable setting. Not only does this useful technique teach real-life skills that can, quite literally, save a life, it allows women to feel more confident in their own abilities to defend themselves and therefore feel more at ease as they move through their lives. Originally developed for the Israeli Defense Force, Krav Maga combines Boxing, Wrestling, Karate, Judo and Aikido to create a fighting system that is incredibly practical for real-life situations.
Krav Maga classes are focused on teaching women how to defend themselves based on the ways that women are typically attacked. While learning how to form a proper fist is crucial, Krav Maga students will also become familiar with how to get out of a hold, use a handbag as a weapon and so much more. Not to mention, Krav Maga focuses on attacking the most vulnerable parts of the body, which are undoubtedly the most effective in a real-life scenario. These types of hits are prohibited in other forms of martial arts, making this fighting system the most effective.
“This is a very specialized training used by our own DOJ, LEO’s and Secret Service. Great for anyone looking to learn how to protect themselves from an attacker.”
– Brian, owner of Rockwell Fitness
