Jace has been involved in martial arts for over 15 years. She started in Tae Kwon Do and MMA (Mixed Martial arts) earlier in her training career with certifications in personal training and nutrition. She moved on to Krav Maga and Fit to Fight with a love for self defense. " It wasn't enough to fight my own weight class anymore. I didn't feel confident that even with all my training, that I would be able to defend myself on the street. I wanted to have that situational awareness and be able to defend myself in dangerous situations, where I knew the people would be bigger, meaner and even armed. I wanted to be able to protect my children. Krav Maga gave me the tools, I brought the passion and I now have that confidence. The training isn't easy but it's everything to me." CQSD Krav Maga is affiliated with Fit-to-Fight ® owned and operated by Ryan Hoover and Jeff Jimmo. Two men who understood that Krav Maga is a life style. They have introduced the missing links in preparedness, endurance and getting back up with their certifications in Sparology, From The Ground Up, Hard and Ready and their Krav Maga expert levels.
CQSD KRAV MAGA
Close Quarters Self Defense Krav Maga brings effective self defense techniques to anyone wanting to learn the self defense system developed by Imi Lichtenfeld currently used by the Israeli Defense Forces. By focusing on self defense rather than on a sport oriented martial art, CQSD KRAV MAGA provides a system that is effective on the street. The muscle memory and threat responses learned, better prepares the student to deal with dangerous altercations. In street violence there is no such thing as taping out like in MMA or Jiujitsu, there are no rules when it comes to only one person at a time, no rest periods or fighting for points. With the instruction of Krav Maga and Fit to Fight, a program designed to enhance all aspects of self defense training, the students will emerge confident that they have the tools necessary to protect themselves and their families.
Close Quarters Self Defense Krav Maga is in the strong belief that in order to prevent children from being victimized they need to show a powerful front by being confident in their demeanor. We have created a Self-Esteem / Krav Maga program called KIDS FORTITUDE, specifically designed for children, to boost their self esteem and confidence, making them less susceptible to bullying while learning self defense from the Krav Maga system.
CQSD KRAV MAGA will teach you proven, quick resolution, self defense techniques in response to violent altercations. The students are given practical techniques that they can use from the very first class.
