How do I start Krav Maga Training?
1. New Individuals...your first step is to contact our CFC admin team by calling Combat FIT during its office hours to request a "training evaluation". Speak to a staff member and start the entry process and background check. Or, come by and visit... then watch one class for free.
2. Once you have been evaluated and your application has been submitted, reviewed and cleared, CFC admin will let you know if you qualify for training. A spot in one of the 'No Obligation Foundational Sessions' will be set aside for you. The completion of this session is required prior to Krav Maga training.
3. If you cant make Combat FITs monthly Foundations class or the quarterly JCC session , then we can schedule a private Fast Trac Foundations session to get you started.
Your training application passes, now take Foundations:
Prior to attending our regular Israeli Krav Maga (IKM) courses, you must first complete one of the following "foundation" sessions:
1. Fast Trac Foundations IKM Session : Monthly private class held the first week of each month.
2. LEO Embed class : Train right away in our regular classes. Only for selected Law Enforcement personnel.
3. Jewish Community Center : Quarterly held, slower paced JCC 4-6 week session.
Attending one of the above sessions, will allow new individuals the opportunity of seeing if this type of training is a right fit for them.
Once completed, and if you are accepted to train with us, you can then select to participate in either the 6, or 8 week on-going IKM courses held at the CrossFit Training Facility. Some students may be placed on TPS (temporary probation status) as dictated by higher echelon.
Israeli Krav Maga is a high intensity program that may not be suitable for everyone. Interested individuals...if you have physical limitations or have mental/health issues, then documented clearance is required from your primary health care physician.
CFC reserves the right to refuse instructional services to any individual not adhereing to our training standards or policies. Dismissal may occur at any time.
Also note, that if any substantiated criminal intent, activity or anti-social behavior is collaborated by our investigations staff, then this will preclude you from participating in any of our CFC-Combat FIT or IKM courses.
IKM Foundations Session Description:
This initial class will give an overview of the IKM training program. It provides the basic training methods, safety standards and primary IKM techniques, needed to facilitate the transition of all new students into the beginner P-1 training series. For cost, look below.
During this session behavioral science analysis will be used to assess all new students tempermant, character and motive. Hence, acceptance into the Israeli Krav Maga training program is based on passing the latter and not necessarily the completion of the class.
