Intro Fight
This beginning level fight class is designed for those members who want to experience fighting in a step-by-step, methodical, non intimidating fashion. The members will learn the essential strikes, blocks, and movements of Krav Maga street fighting and will be brought along slowly until they are accustomed to the contact that occurs in a fight. There will be some degree of contact in every class, beginning with minimal contact the first few weeks and ending with full sparring by the end of the course. The class format is different from the other classes at The Center in that it has a start and end date and lasts 10 weeks. Members are encouraged to start class on the first day because each week builds on the previous week.

Fight
This class is designed for members who understand the basic mechanics of fighting: movement, basic punches, kicks, combinations, and defenses against attacks. In Fight 1 you will continue to sharpen these skills in a faster paced environment than the Intro Fight class, with more sparring and a slightly higher level of contact.

Advanced Fight
This class is for members who have gone through Intro Fight and Fight 1 or have previous fighting experience. Training focuses on advanced combinations, feints, fighting in the clinch, takedowns, ground fighting, and fighting multiple opponents. Sparring at this level is more freestyle, with takedowns and grappling permissible in most scenarios.

Intro Ground Fight
To be a complete fighter you must know how to fight on the ground.

Members will learn escapes from various holds and positions as well as offensive moves such as joint locks and submissions.
