Yellow Belt Update

The Krav Maga Santa Cruz Yellow Belt class is underway, and the athletes are doing an awesome job! The combination of training at CrossFit Amundson, along with the weekly Warrior Yoga, has greatly accelerated the learning curve of the entire class. The first two weeks have been devoted to learning the foundational Krav Maga combative series, including Hammer Fists, Elbows, and A-Frame Kicks. Plus, a lot of stress and conditioning drills!


To learn more and reserve your spot in the summer Yellow Belt class, please email Info@CrossFitAmundson.com.


Yellow Belt Series starts March 14, 2017!

For the first time in Santa Cruz County, a formal Yellow Belt in Krav Maga, in accordance with Krav Maga Worldwide and the FORCE Training Division, will be offered through Krav Maga Santa Cruz. The Yellow Belt is the foundational level in the journey to more advanced levels of Krav Maga. Check out the flyer for additional details!

Phase A Graduates


Krav Maga Santa Cruz Phase A Graduates


“Congratulations to the Phase A Graduates from Krav Maga Santa Cruz. Since my discovery of Krav Maga and CrossFit, both in December of 2001, I knew one-day I wanted to teach both disciplines under one roof. Watching all of you successfully pass the Phase A Test was a dream come true, and a beautiful union of the mind, body and spirit in action. Congratulations on a huge accomplishment and keep up the inspiring work.” – Greg Amundson

“The most effective way to live is as a warrior. A warrior may worry and think before making any decision, but once he makes it, he goes his way, free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting him. That’s the warrior’s way.” – Castaneda
