    EVKM Takes Home Medals at Local Tournament

    We recently had 5 of our upper level Krav Maga students takepart in a regional Muay Thai tournament. Our team had a great showing, winning 2 gold medals and 1 silver medal! You may be asking, "Why are Krav Maga students taking part in a sports fighting tournament?", which is a really good question! We are definitely not a combat sports fighting school, nor do we have a combat sports program. Our passions as instructors rest solely on the self defense side of things. So then Why? The "Why" is due to what we as self defense practitioners can gain from the experience.

    Krav Maga Disarms with CCTactics

    Charr Cee of CCTactics (Follow her on Instagram @cctactics ) visited EVKM recently to learn some Krav Maga gun defenses. She spent about an hour training with EVKM Chief Instructor Derrek, and they worked on a few different scenarios involving defending against a handgun. When faced with this type of threat, the first response should be to comply and satisfy the attacker's demands if it seems like the most likely route to getting away safely. If a determination is made that escaping unharmed is not certain, attempting a defense may be needed. In our trainingwe follow an order of operations abbreviated to RCAT, Redirect Control Attack Takeaway. In this video, you can see Charr learning ....
