A little about Krav Maga

Krav Maga: pronounced (kräv) (megä´) n. [Heb.] for "contact combat" is the Official Self-Defense System of Israeli Military. Krav Maga is a modern and practical style of Self-Defense. This system has been continually refined and developed in light of actual modern combat and Self-Defense experiences. We encourage the practitioner to adapt techniques for himself or herself and their special abilities. It is a complete system anyone can utilize, regardless of size or strength.

Krav Maga was developed for use in the street. Therefore there are no rules. When an individual is attacked in the street there is no way to know how many opponents or weapons you might encounter, therefore Krav Maga training is based on a system without rules. For this reason there are no competitive tournaments or katas in Krav Maga. The techniques practiced in the style must be in terms of actual defense situations. Not everyone can kick to head so the system is geared towards the average person. Students are taught a variety of possible defensive reactions for each possible attack situation, building upon an actual framework of useable techniques. They are then encouraged to utilize the responses that are appropriate to their capabilities. This allows the student to develop a sense of confidence in their abilities.

Using self defense training and principles to keep you on track for a Safe, Healthy, Successful and Happy Life!

I’ve protected people, money and property for many years and one thing holds true. Planning and practice have kept me safe and ready for the unexpected. Krav Maga is the answer to all those questions you have about being able to defend yourself in a real life situation.

Let me help you get prepared and show you that everyone can defend themselves!

I've made a commitment to be here on the mat ready to support you, push you and help achieve your goals of realistic self-defense training. The principles of Self-Defense are simple...

Do the work - Reap the benefits.

Better conditioning, stress relief, a state of preparedness. Only training can prepare you to dig down deep, stay focused and get you moving.

I have stated my commitment to you and now it's time for you to commit to yourself. Come down and let's get to Work!

About Ed Maisonet

I'm a Krav Maga Instructor and I train under Master Instructor Rhon Mizrachi. My school is part of the Krav Maga Federation, and my Staten Island Krav Maga school is located at 2031 Forest Avenue 2nd floor (Forest Avenue Plaza) Staten Island, New York

I was born and raised on the Lower East Side of NYC. I learned early on that it was my responsibility to stay alert and prepare myself for the challenges that come along with growing up in an urban environment. I have dedicated the remainder of my life to training myself and others about survival/self defense awareness. The information available about safety and self defense is endless, yet most overlook the need and the responsibility they have to themselves and there loved ones to know the basics, about personal safety, fire safety and what to do in an accident.

What I bring to the table is a lifetime of paying attention to detail, my military background, my employment in the security and protection sector and most of all my will to share and educate those around me to be safer and more aware. One can not hope to respond to a life threatening situation if they have not prepared for it. Even the most trained individual can tell you it takes all of your resources, mental and physical, to act under the pressure of a life threatening situation - let alone one that includes bad guys. If you do not have a plan you will most likely do nothing.

So my challenge to you is to Take Action.

Thank you and have a safe day.
