Our Krav Maga program is a belt and level system. The levels are: Beginner’s Level and Advanced Level. The belt ranking is: White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Brown and Black. While the belts are good to recognize what a student has achieved, the emphasis is really about what you are learning. While we want students to train to get their Black Belts, we would rather see a person train hard what they have learned and not focus on the belts. The Beginner’s Level is the real starting point and gives you the opportunity to see if this is the right program for you; it is your orientation, if you will. During this level, which is typically 4 months, a student will get the foundation they need to train the rest of the levels. Topics covered in this level are: punches, kicks, stances, punch defenses, kick defenses, releasing from chokes and wrist grab, and how to fall properly. The upper levels are exclusive to our students who pass the Yellow Belt test and are invited to Advanced Level. This is our main program, and we only allow students who show control and desire to come to this level. During these upper levels, topics cover: punches, kicks, punch defenses, kick defenses, releases from chokes/bearhugs/hair grabs/ground attacks, defenses against knife threats/attacks, defenses against stick attacks, defenses against gun threats, and more options to rolls and breaking falls.
