    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.

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 ....
