    Women’s Safety Awareness with Krav Maga: It’s More than Just the Month of April

    Guest Post By EVKM Student Abby Huot In the early summer of 2015, I was filling up a water bottle in the kitchen of an acquaintance’s house. After denying an advance by this man, I suddenly was grabbed from behind by my throat with one hand and my hair by the other. He hissed something vile into my ear, and my stomach sunk into the bottoms of my feet with deep, paralyzing, primal fear as I was flung like a ragdoll onto the tile floor. I want you to close your eyes for a moment and imagine being grabbed and thrown this way when you least expect it. What would you do? Man or woman, it doesn’t matter: would you know what to do? Untrained and unprepared for anything like ....

    The Little Things Matter In Krav Maga Training

    Guest Post By EVKM Student Abby Huot When you’re trying to get in the best shape of your life, it’s important to remember that everything is aggregate in terms of your goal. We all know we need to eat well, drink a gallon of water or more, and get plenty of sleep. Those are easy, and yet, so many people skip those simple steps. But what about even smaller ones? Do those matter too? The answer is resounding “YES!”. Corner-cutting and getting sloppy almost always creates more problems later down the line. Sure, you can get away with it for a while, but it almost always catches up to us whether it’s in work performance, relationships, or even keeping your ....

    I'll Start Later: A Look At Why We Procrastinate

    We tend to assign descriptors like laziness to the concept of procrastination, but it really is closer to weak impulse control and not thinking about our thinking. Procrastination doesn’t inherently infer laziness. In fact, much of the concept of procrastination can be explained by looking at a cognitive bias called the Present Bias. ( Read more about how Cognitive Biases get in the way of your goal) Present Bias is our inherent tendency to put more value on rewards that are closer to the present time, even when the more distant reward would be much better. An example: If given the choice between $100 today or $200 a year from today, most people would take the $100 today. ....

    Beyond Punches and Kicks: Krav Maga and Situational Awareness

    Guest Post By EVKM Student Abby Huot I’m three months into training in Krav Maga at this point, and I can’t believe how fast it’s gone. I started on November 4 th and I’m just entering my fourth month already- where has the time gone? One of the things that surprises me the most about practicing Krav Maga is the peace of mind it gives me when I’m out in public. I don’t feel invincible by any means, but I definitely don’t feel the level of vulnerability that I used to feel, especially at night. In class, it is constantly stressed and mentioned that the thing that matters the most when it comes to practicing Krav Maga and self defense is ....

    Get Safe and Stay Healthy: Injury Prevention Tips

    Guest Post by EVKM Instructor Dr. Sara Ullenbruch, PT, DPT Hi everyone! I’m Sara, I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy who has been practicing for over 4 years, and I am also one of the Krav Maga instructors at EVKM. As a physical therapist, I use Applied Functional Science to help restore my patient's normal biomechanics and resolve/reduce injury. Basically, I remind your body how it should be moving to resolve compensations and poor movement patterns. Our bodies move in 3 planes of motions; forward and back (sagittal plane) side to side (frontal plane), rationally (transverse plane). With certain injuries or activities, some planes ofmovement will become limited and those ....

    Waiting (and Waiting) On Motivation? Why Motivation Doesn't Work!

    Did you know that researchers have mostly concluded that intrinsic (self) motivation doesn't exist? ?? That may sound shocking to hear but think about it for a minute: Have you ever said that you were feeling motivated to do something and then you never did it? You felt really motivated to lose those extra pounds but then ended up adding on even more? Had a surge of motivation to learn Krav Maga so you would be able to defend yourself and then never even made it into a class to try it out? Intrinsicvs Extrinsic Motivation
    There are two general categories of motivation, the previously mentioned IntrinsicMotivation, and ExtrinsicMotivation. Intrinsic is the self-motivation, the ....

    Goal Setting for Your Krav Maga Journey

    Guest Post By EVKM Student Abby Huot Social media is overloaded with inspirational quotes about goal-setting and “ fitspirations ” every day of the week, and you probably see it in your own feed regularly. If you’re looking for mere inspirational entertainment, feel free to look there. If you’re looking for real advice for goal-setting as a seasoned athlete, but someone new to Krav Maga and EVKM , you’re in the right place. Krav Maga is one of the most physical things I’ve ever done in my life, if not THE most physical activity I’ve been a part of. I’m a former collegiate swimmer, I’ve done a triathlon, 5ks, mud runs, obstacle ....
