Krav Maga has stood the test of time for combative systems, and when it comes to self defense, it reigns supreme. CDK Krav Maga gives you the confidence to protect yourself and your loved ones should the need ever arise.


Confidence is Key. Without it, even a person with the most intricate self defense knowledge will fail. Confidence comes from putting that knowledge to the test, in class, on a regular basis. Come to one of our classes and see for yourself.

About Krav Maga

Krav Maga is an Israeli close combat Self Defense system that uses instinctive movements that are easier to recall during the stress of an attack. It was started in the 1930s in Germany by Jews who were training to defend themselves against the Nazis. As the Nazis army grew to power, the creator of the system Imi Lechtenfeld deployed to Israel.

The System was soon adapted by the  IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) because of it easy to learn but extremely effective techniques and then made its way the United States and is known for being one of the most effective self defense systems to date.

Krav Maga CDK is awesome! I never finish class without feeling like I accomplished something, and I am always learning something new.
