Why Join Krav Maga Dallas?

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!

Do I need to be Fit to do Krav Maga?

  • Quite the opposite! The vast majority of our members are "regular" people just like you! Men and women (and kids!) who wish to gain confidence, learn practical self-defense, and feel a little bit more comfortable with their safety during these tense, uncertain times. Whether you are fighting to overcome past trauma, build confidence or learn a life skill that you hope never to use, our instructors have got your back!

What makes Krav Maga Dallas different?

  • I think it's probably our goofy, down-to-earth coaching team! Our instructors are devoted to your personal safety in the realest sense of the words, and will stretch your comfort zone to help you get results...but we will make sure you have fun doing it too! No matter your background, ability or personal beliefs, all you need is a positive attitude and an open mind to be successful at KMD!
