Krav Maga* with Gil Woodbridge (Ages 16+)

Krav Maga is a military self-defense and fighting system developed for the Israeli army; it incorporates techniques from Boxing, Wrestling, Aikido, Judo, Karate, and more. And at the JCC, it incorporates FUN!

Led by Krav Maga expert and experienced educator, Gil Woodbridge, our IKM Krav Maga program advances its self-defense martial arts content from the Wingate Sports College in Israel, which sees sports as being not only a field of competition and individual fulfillment, but also as an educational tool.

The secret to our popularity lies not only in the type of techniques that are taught, but also in the full range of movement that is encouraged. In our new method there is no “wrong way to move,” which provides a “carefree” environment for the child to be fully expressive. Classes are built in a fun and interactive way that keeps your child engaged throughout the duration of the session.

Mind/Body Studio, New Building
