Been going for 8 months! My best take-away is they challenge you while wanting you to succeed. All ages and body types are welcome. Anyone can flexibly practice the moves---they focus on principles and practice---you do not need to be fit like Bruce Lee!

I joined Krav Maga CDK almost 2 years ago and I love it! DJ is a wonderful instructor who brings both deep knowledge and passion for what he does. The instructors he trains are all fantastic, and fellow students are helpful and supportive.

CDK is awesome! The staff and instructors are amazing. DJ the owner is very personable and always sits down and has a chat with every new person to get to know them & understand their goals. The classes are very inclusive and diverse. It has been great for my fitness & my confidence!

Nothing but good things to say about this place. I took my 13 y.o. to a few different places close to my home and I wasn't convinced with any. I was a bit hesitant at first due to the distance from my home but I have to say this place is totally worth the drive. After the first intro class we knew this was it. The energy and the enthusiasm in the room is contagious.
