All students must begin their training in Level 1. Krav. Level 1 focuses on the basics - your fight stance, kicks, strikes, and beginner combatives & defenses. Level 1 provides the baseline of techniques upon which to build and test into Level 2. With regular attendance (3x/week), students can prepare to test into Level 2 in 4-6 months. Level 1 students are also welcome to participate in All Levels, which has the added bonus of higher level techniques built into an L1 class. Our Krav classes go up to Level 5, and students must test into each level. Level 1 students are not required to purchase any special equipment, but we do recommend hand protection such as wraps or MMA gloves, and groin protection for the guys. Level 2 and above requires shin guards, headgear, and boxing gloves, all of which can be purchased at KMCH!
