Welcome to Krav Maga Houston

Krav Maga is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and has been taught to over 500 law enforcement agencies and tens of thousands of civilians in these United States alone.

Krav Maga is a simple, effective self-defense system - utilizing 1) instinctive movements, 2) practical techniques, and 3) realistic training scenarios to prepare you for any self-defense situation.

Krav Maga is the most battle-tested system in the world and offers practitioners REAL SOLUTIONS to REAL WORLD THREATS, as well as, a great physical workout. Krav Maga is called “the best skill-building workout on the planet” for a reason!
