EFFECTIVE FOR MEN & WOMEN
Krav maga was developed in Israel where men and women – big and tall, short and small – all serve mandatory military service. With this reality in mind, Krav Maga was developed from inception to be explicitly accessible and effective for men and women of all shapes and sizes – addressing threats that both men and women face on the battlefield and in everyday life. At Krav Maga Houston, our staff has worked with thousands of men and women and understand the differences that exist as men and women approach self defense training.
