Self Defense & High Intensity Fitness Training in Santa Fe & Los Alamos

Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew), is the official system of defensive tactics and self-defense used by the Israel Defense Forces, Israeli National and Military Police, and other anti-terror/special forces units in Israel, and has been taught to Law Enforcement agencies across the U.S.  Krav Maga is especially suited for the general population as a quick and easy-to-learn street survival system, ideal for the busy person concerned about personal safety, who also is looking for a great workout and a lot of fun!

For the first time, this proven self defense and fitness system has come to Santa Fe and Los Alamos, New Mexico!


Krav Maga is not a martial art, it focuses on the martial and not the art. We train for REAL attacks. There are no forms or katas. We try to simulate the stress of an attack by having students perform as close to real attacks as possible. This places the defender under stress, which is what you would feel in a real attack. Therefore, when you learn and train a self-defense technique under stress, with full adrenaline and heart pounding, you will be prepared to use those techniques in a real life situation, where the stress, adrenaline, and fear levels are high.

Our goal is to train students in Krav Maga and raise their fitness level so that they can survive any situation and GO HOME SAFE!

Your first class with New Mexico Krav Maga is always free.
