  • NO MEAN PEOPLE: We have a pretty strict no jerk policy. If you are quick to anger, judge or complain, please do not apply.
  • EGOS: Everyone has an ego. It protects our sense of self-worth. That said...if you are not committed to personal growth and humbly admitting when you're wrong so there is opportunity for growth, this is not the place for you.
  • PUPPIES: I'm not sure a person who doesn't like puppies can be trusted so better not apply if you don't like puppies.
These rules seem silly but we're serious about them. Kind People, Open Minds, Hard Workers...these are the types of people we are looking for. If you are one of them, please consider joining our community!

What is Krav Maga?

What will your transformation be like???
Non-Scale Victories!!
The primary goal of our program is simple:  "To Create the Happiest, Healthiest, Fittest and Safest Version of You Possible!".  Weight loss is not listed in that description.  Weight loss (or muscle gain) is a product of healthy habits established over a long period of coaching.  See the power of healthy habit building in our non-scale victories!!!
BT isn't just a gym. BT's Krav Maga gave me the skills to change my body but it also changed my mental strength and drive. Everyone can do this. 
"Nothing in life is guaranteed...but at least now I have a plan.  If I'm caught in a bad spot, I'm grateful to have some potentially life saving tools. And if not, at least I get a kick-ass workout each time that I enjoy!" - Kyle
BT's CrossFit and Krav Maga classes got my butt back into shape but more importantly, taught me how to eat correctly. My proudest moments were learning to control my eating and complete an 11 mile run! And Bonus.....Thanks to Blue Titan, I crushed the police academy and now have my dream career. 

For starters, we have a full-time cleaning crew so there is no toe fungus on our mats! 🤣 (pretty solid first reason to join right?!?)

Krav Maga is the most effective, practical, and realistic self-defense system on earth. True Statement. But people don't join just for our Krav Maga...they join because nobody offers a better overall experience, ANYWHERE!

It's not just the clean mats, fans that belong on the front of an airplane, or our bathrooms that are fully stocked with Febreze so you don't have to wait or suffer after entering the potty after Taco Tuesdays.

It's the smile you will have on your face after you leave, even though we fully understand learning self-defense can be scary, especially if you have had a prior tragic experience. It's a great workout you will get without struggling to turn your head to the left when changing lanes in traffic because of a tweaked neck.

It's the totality of the experience that is second to none, that can only be created after nearly 2 decades of learning from my own mistakes along the way.

Don't Just take our word, hear it from our members!

I started here because one of the older members told me I didn’t have to be superman to do this. That’s the thing about this place, you don’t have to be a superhero or a bodybuilder or have years of experience, you just have to be yourself. You come here to be the best you. To be honest with you, I didn’t come here for self-defense, I needed something to get me off the couch. And I’m learning something valuable and I’m meeting wonderful people. I can talk about things here that I can’t with other people I know, we have a connection.

- Martin M.

I came for the Krav classes and stayed for the people. The instructors are patient with students and work hard to challenge and build a strong self-defense foundation for beginners. I look forward to going to class every day.

- Aileen H.

What is excellent about Krav Maga Dallas is that you have a supportive staff and an encouraging group of members- the whole environment itself is welcoming and supportive and encouraging to all types of folks there’s a wide variety of folks and the people are excellent from the people who come to train and all the trainers are excellent. That’s why I choose to train at Krav Maga Dallas. It’s a top-notch culture!
