    To kick off the New Year, the team at Redfin released a blog post on The Most Popular Fitness Trends in All 50 States ,
    highlighting each state's trending way to get fit in 2018. The post states that: " We’ve put together a list of the hottest fitness trend in each state and D.C. by analyzing several factors so you know what your neighbors are up to. Yoga, Crossfit, and Peloton are among the most popular workouts in nearly every state, but some are hotbeds of Clubbercise (dancing like nobody’s watching), Jukari (a Cirque du Soleil-inspired workout) and Goat Yoga (which is exactly what it sounds like: yoga with baby goats).

    7 Reasons To Take Krav Maga Classes at EVKM

    Been thining about checking out some Krav Maga or self defense classes? Here are 7 reasons why you should go for it!
    1. Beginners Are Welcome:
    The vast majority of the new members at EVKM have never trained in any type of self-defense previously, and that is awesome. Krav Maga is for everyone and anyone, and our classes have all ages and body sizes. The techniques in Krav Maga are based on your body’s natural instincts, which makes it easier to learn, and we purposefully avoid techniques that rely on size or strength since we assume our potential attacker will be bigger and stronger than us. We even have classes just for beginners so that you can start out with others who are ....

  • Kids Self Defense in Tempe - EVKM Self Defense & Fitness - Big Changes After Two Months Of Krav Maga Classes in Tempe

    Big Changes After Two Months Of Krav Maga Classes in Tempe


    Guest Post by Abby Huot I’m officially two months into my krav maga training and I can’t lie, the last month has been a little bit of a mess. I went home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, then was home a few days and had to head to Las Vegas for a convention. I’ve been home since Sunday and I’m now attending another convention in Phoenix for the next few days. My training has been on and off mainly because I’ve been away from EVKM and it’s made me feel a tad rusty, which is pretty sad when you’re still fairly new to krav maga. Still, I can tell how much I’ve progressed. My hits are faster, my kicks are higher, and I’m remembering ....

    How Your Brain Is Trying To Keep You From Your Goals (And How To Overcome It)

    O ur brain is wired in some really cool ways with a primary function of survival. But not so cool is that these same wirings could also be keeping us from reaching our goals and our potential. A failure to recognize and understand how our brain may be working against us can lead to very frustrating cycles of false starts and failures. Let's talk quickly about cognitive biases. Basically, we all have these little errors in our judgment and thinking that come from our tendencies to make assumptions instead of gathering and analyzing relevant data. Some are better at realizing our own cognitive biases and judgment errors than others, and then take specific steps to ....

    My First Krav Maga Class and the Start of a New Adventure!

    This post is from Abby, a student at EVKM Self Defense & Fitness. She recently started the EVKM Krav Maga program after moving to Arizona from Minnesota. She is going to be sharing her Krav Maga journey and adventures, along with tips and advice she learns along the way to stay motivated and consistent with her training. I joined EVKM in early November of 2017. I’m nearly two months into training under Derrek and all of his amazing instructors and believe it or not, my life has altered completely in a very a short period of time. Before I go into how I walked through the doors of EVKM, it’s important that I explain my background and how I got here as someone completely ....

  • Kids Self Defense in Tempe - EVKM Self Defense & Fitness - How You Do Anything

    How You Do Anything

    This quote was on Joe Rogan's Instagram feed , and it is something to stop and think about and fully process. How you do anything, is how you do everything. How you handle any challenge/setback/frustration, is probably how you handle every challenge/setback/frustration. How you handle any relationship, is probably how you handle every relationship. Details matter! It is important to be honest about how you do the “anything” if you ever want to change and affect the "everything". So let's apply this to self defense . How you handle any repetition/situation/class/drill is how you handle every repetition/situation/class/drill. Focus and be intentional about the details! ....

    This last Saturday, we were invited to Burton Barr Central Library in downtown Phoenix to talk about self defense and Krav Maga. Our Chief Instructor Derrek Hofrichter talked about how to stay safe by avoiding bad situations in the first place by practicing situational awareness. He showed how understanding, using, and reading body language can be a huge assistance as part of self defense training. He also demonstrated how to defend against common types of attacks. Afterwards, the audience had many questions about other self defense scenarios and how Krav Maga differes from other approaches and techniques. Was a great event with a huge turnout, we are very thankful to the Phoenix ....

  • Choosing Self Defense

    Choosing a Self Defense Program
    When seeking to learn how to defend ourselves, there is no shortage of trainers, dojos, gyms, and classes offering to teach self defense. Here are some things to consider in choosing a self defense program. 1. Pick Your Style: While nearly every martial art or fighting system has self defense benefits, many have goals and objectives beyond merely protecting oneself. Most martial arts fall into the sports fighting category, meaning tournaments, sparring matches, and ultimately rules and procedures that influence the techniques that are taught. True self defense training should be against realistic attacks, and not just attacks from a certain fighting ....
