We operate from the perspective that awareness is paramount and avoidance is best. We acknowledge that not every situation will have a self defense solution but we also know that there might be a time where we have to engage… and its better to be prepared. That’s why we train with Krav Maga. Krav Maga is not a martial art. It is not a sport. Krav Maga is a self defense philosophy emphasizing aggression, and simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers. Our sole purpose in teaching Krav Maga is so that we can create a distance of time and space from our assailant in order to escape.
We teach from an empty hands perspective, meaning we teach self defense without the use of weapons. Our program is designed with the acknowledgement that many are obtaining permits to carry concealed firearms and many of us have done so and carry on a daily basis. However, the use of lethal force or even brandishing a lethal weapon is not always the best choice. For the gap between not being able to do anything and firing a weapon in self defense, we established the Impact 360 Memphis – Center for Personal Safety and Self-Defense.
All of our instructors are 3rd 4th & 6th degree blacks belts in Karate and Taekwondo with 2 black belt candidates in Krav Maga. We have instructors that are certified to teach Military and Law Enforcement in Krav Maga.
Come join us. We think you will find it fun and exciting and leave with a new level of confidence and empowerment.
