FITNESS FRIDAY: KRAV MAGA
Today, instead of focusing on sports, I am going to take a moment to mention something near and dear to my heart: fitness. As a personal trainer and fitness instructor, I often look for new workouts and plans to make exercise fun and easy. I recently discovered Krav Maga and wanted to share it with my readers. This online academy is one of the best things to happen to me since Apolo Ohno won Dancing With The Stars, so to say I am happy is a complete understatement.
Leading self-defense organization, Krav Maga Worldwide™, has announced the arrival of its first-ever online academy at KravMaga.com/Academy. Krav Maga Worldwide™ Academy members are now able to learn life-saving self-defense from the comfort of their homes. Krav Maga Worldwide™ Academy provides users with interactive lessons and courses that allow them to move at their own pace through immersive, in-depth instruction taught by top Krav Maga Worldwide Instructors™. Among the classes available are courses designed for learning core techniques of Krav Maga, courses designed for kids and anti-bullying, as well as special seminars such as defenses against gun threats, the latter taught by Darren Levine, a 6th degree black belt and Chief Instructor of Krav Maga Worldwide™.
Krav Maga Worldwide™ Academy was created to provide the most effective virtual Krav Maga training to anyone with an Internet connection. Each lesson features in-depth HD videos, slides, printouts, peer-to-peer chat and many other learning tools. Students can move forward in their Krav Maga education at their own speed when and where they want. With moderated forums, instructor feedback, and a comprehensive curriculum, individuals can learn and advance in their life–saving self-defense education from their desktop or mobile device.
The first course, Introduction to Krav Maga, is offered at no charge to registered users. Introduction to Krav Maga is designed to educate individuals on the history and philosophy behind Krav Maga. During the course, they will learn about the origin of Krav Maga and basic principles used throughout Krav Maga. This course also gives students information on how to properly train in Krav Maga.
Upon completing Introduction to Krav Maga, students can move on to the Krav Maga technique courses. Core Krav Maga teaches individuals important techniques used in Krav Maga. The topics covered include: Stances and Movement, Punches, Elbows, Kicks and Knees, Punch Defenses, Ground Fighting, and Self Defense techniques.
The Kid’s Program is designed to help children and parents learn how to handle bullying. As bullying is a major issue for today’s youth, it is crucial for kids to learn how to deal with situations in which they are being intimidated. The techniques and tools in these lessons will help children avoid, diffuse, and, as a last resort, defend themselves against bullying threats.
