Our classes are designed for real world, self-defense situations. Krav Maga is a tactical system that will prepare you to protect and defend through awareness, through avoidance and, if necessary, through neutralizing a threat. We aren’t here for just a good workout, and definitely not for promoting violence. We are here to help people protect themselves and their loved ones.

“Owners Jason and Ashley Carrio are the heart of the facility and they make every person who walks through their doors feel empowered after every single class. I may not be the strongest or most technically-gifted student there, but one thing is certain: I feel more empowered, more informed than I was the day before. At the end of the day, I feel like I have learned something that could help me protect myself and my girls. It baffles my mind of how blind I was to situational awareness before taking Krav Maga!!!”
“Expert instruction in from a very family oriented and friendly staff. You get more than just the basic do this then do that. You actually have chances to practice what you’ve learned in different scenarios that you could find yourself in. That is one of the qualities that set this place apart and above a lot of other places offering self defense instruction. Just knowing a move does you no good if you can’t apply it when it counts. There is so much more I can say about that but seeing and experiencing is the only way to really understand and you try it for free before you join. You owe it to yourself and the ones that you love and that love you to at least try this place out.”
“It’s changed our lives!!! My son is 7, and he’s a sweet kid…Really sweet! We worried kids would continue to walk all over him in school. We didn’t think athletics was really “his thing”. Krav has brought out an athleticism in him, and given him so much confidence. He wants to go to every class available…4 classes a week, plus kid fit. He loves it, so I take him! Kid fit has made him a runner. He completed his first 5k this summer. We’re beyond grateful for finding HammerFist Krav Maga.”
