I have a new course, Krav Maga Basics and Beyond!

I am very excited to share my latest course on Curious, Krav Maga Basics and Beyond!

Consisting of 2+ hours of content, made in conjunction with police and military combat instructors, this course delves into the techniques and history of the Israeli Defense Force's martial art, Krav Maga. Learn from in-depth treatments of self-defense scenarios ranging from empty hand attacks (e.g. kicks and chokes) to defenses from weapons such as knives, bats, and handguns.

Let me know what you think of the course. And remember, I'm here if you have any questions!
