Krav Maga Santa Cruz Green Belt: So One May Walk In Peace.
Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and Law Enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real Self Defense in the shortest possible time. In Krav Maga Green Belt Level, you will learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Drills are advanced and teach quick transitions between lethal and non-lethal encounters. Just as important, Krav Maga Green Belt teaches Athletes to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and on the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to Self Defense will make you safer and more secure. Green Belt is the culmination of our Krav Maga Yellow and Orange belt program and will continue to develop these techniques, as well as instilling the Warrior Spirit and a resilient and durable body. Green belt takes approximately 18 months of training to achieve.
