Finally, Krav Maga in Baton Rouge.  I have read about Krav Maga in articles, seen it on TV and in Movies, but Krav Maga seemed to be only found in the big cities (New York, LA, Houston, etc.).  When I found that Baton Rouge had it's own KM instruction, I had to see if i liked it.  After my first class, I signed up.  The Instructors are first class.  They not only have the knowledge of the defense system, but have a passion to teach it to all types of people.  I am a 40 year old male who has had ankle reconstructive surgery.  I was incredibly out of shape and let's just say a bit over weight.  I had concerns about my overall health and participating in Krav Maga, however I found that KM is for those who are in shape and out of shape.  And let me say that it's a workout for both.   KM is also very practical as far combatives and martial arts go.  While some martial arts take a lifetime to become proficient, KM can be picked up in a short period of time.  Baton Rouge Krav Maga is the real deal.  There are a lot of Krav Maga pretenders out there who use the name but teach what they want (I ran into one of these guys out in Denham Springs).  Baton Rouge Krav Maga is affiliated with Krav Maga World Wide.  KMWW ensures that those who are associated with them teach Krav Maga and not some version of it.  Give Baton Rouge Krav Maga a call and try out a class.  You won't regret it.

Self Defense


If you want to get fit and learn how to defend yourself, Krav Maga is the most practical and


effective form of training.

Originally developed for the Israeli Military. Now the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement.

  • Punches, elbows, knees and kicks
• Defend against various grabs and holds
• Realistic training drills

Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals.

Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.


This a one time orientation class to introduce you to Krav Maga.
