KRAV MAGA - Weapon Retention

This program is well-integrated, meaning that similar defensive principles apply to a variety of hostile situations.  Therefore, the system can be learned in a relatively short period of instruction.  The system is designed to train large numbers of personnel at one time.  The techniques are easy to retain with minimal review and can be performed under extreme stress.  The Krav Maga System has been overwhelmingly praised by defensive tactics instructors from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies as well as hand to hand combat trainers from special units of the military.  These sessions will concentrate on Weapon retention and weapon takeaways.
