St. Johns Krav Maga is a gym (not a dojo or studio) founded by Police SWAT Operators where we prepare our athletes (that's you) for real world self-defense and fitness. Your whole family will be comfortable at our gym, and we coach people from all walks of life. We forge elite fitness in CrossFit, the sport of fitness, but don't be afraid to jump in, regardless of your level of physical fitness. We scale every workout of the day (WOD) to be appropriate for the individual performing the WOD. Unlike a big globogym, you won't walk in and mill about without direction, because every class is run and coached by a CrossFit Trainer. Real results from real effort.
Krav Maga is the official defensive tactics program of the Israeli Defense Force, and we are proud to have two of only seventeen black belts in the United States Krav Maga Association at our gym. Five other members of our coaching staff are now nearing the end of their grueling year of preparation to test for black belt in early 2014.
Team Ares is our competition team, and we train athletes to compete in Kickboxing, Grappling and Mixed Martial Arts. Our sport fighting classes are taught by amateur and professional fighters who love to coach and help you reach your goals. You don't have to be a fighter to train like one! There's no expectation that you'll have to strap on the gloves and throw down, but you'll learn a lot and develop a great set of physical and mental tools while getting in great shape and having a blast!
