    Expectations vs. Reality: Your First Month at Krav Maga Maryland

    For someone who has never tried Krav Maga, it can seem intimidating at first – we get that. If you do a quick Google search for Krav Maga, you’ll probably find videos of fit men and women doing what look to be advanced moves, punches, throws, and just looking all-around scary. But that’s not the full story. Nor is what you’ll walk in and do in your first class. Whether you’re coming from a martial arts background, gym/fitness background, or no background at all, here’s a glimpse into what your first day, weeks, and month at Krav Maga Maryland could look like – if you just take the leap: First, you’ll talk to a Krav Maga Maryland ....

    Training into the Unthinkable

    “Breaking News: Mass Shooting.” It’s becoming an all too familiar headline. Whether it’s at a school, an office building, or a mall, it can feel like nowhere is safe. In addition to the obvious and immediate fear of personal safety, there’s a deeper fear that stays with you beyond the headline… the fear of the unknown. “What if” it happens when I’m at the movies with my family? “What if” that happened at my child’s school? “What if” that happened at my workplace? But when you’ve trained for the unthinkable, you will worry about the “what if’s” a little bit less. You’ll just ....

    De-Conflicting the Burden of Leadership at Muster 002

    By: Jeff Mount |

    Chief Instructor & Director of Operations

    Two months ago, I went to Echelon Front’s Muster 002 in New York City. I could tell you that it was a 2-day leadership conference led by Jocko Willinck and Leif Babin, two Navy SEALs who made up the leadership of Task Unit Bruiser which saw some of the most violent action in Ramadi, Iraq. The company (Echelon Front), the book Extreme Ownership, the Jocko podcast, and the MUSTER 002 are all avenues to teach the practical leadership skills gained from those combat experiences. I could tell you those facts, but it doesn’t come close to the heart of what it was like to be there. 450 leaders from 19 ....

  • Student Stories - Taka Hayakawa

    Our students at Krav Maga Maryland come from all different walks of life. We asked them to share their stories of how Krav Maga has helped their change their lives for the better. By: Taka Hayakawa
    I grew up in Japan, where some of the most popular martial arts have originated. Martial arts such as judo and kendo were part of the public school curriculum. My grandfather was a kendo instructor, and as a child, I remember watching him take care of his antique katana and admiring the strength that it represented. After finishing my education, I did not get involved in any martial arts for nearly 20 years. What drew me back to the arts of “fighting” was the birth of my first ....

    Our students at Krav Maga Maryland come from all different walks of life. We asked them to share their stories of how Krav Maga has helped their change their lives for the better.
    By: Mike Erdely
    In November 2012, I realized I was drinking too much. I was almost 300 pounds, had nothing in my life outside of work and watching TV, and I was looking 40 right in the face. I decided to make a change. I quit drinking first. That was hard, but after a couple of months I wanted to make more improvements to my life. I started to count my calories. And I started getting on an exercise bike. At first I could only manage about 7 minutes at a time. After a couple days, I was riding twice a day, ....

    Our students at Krav Maga Maryland come from all different walks of life. We asked them to share their stories of how Krav Maga has helped their change their lives for the better. By: Kevin Reilly
    I’ve been in and out of Krav Maga Maryland since it first opened in 2005 in Owings Mills. I am a 65 year old retired high school physical education teacher and coach. I’ve spent my entire life around exercise & sports. As I have aged, I have found it more and more difficult to find the means and motivation to exercise. Some joint issues have greatly added to that difficulty. Krav Maga has helped me tremendously in my efforts to continue to be active. I wanted to provide this ....

    Write It Down

    I was reminded yesterday by Jim Thomas during a sales training the importance of writing down your goals, your motivation, and the things that drive you. I’m not good with moderation, however. So instead of writing it down in a notebook, I had to contract a sign company to write it on the walls of our training rooms. They’re that important to me. I love being surrounded by the wisdom of these warriors. It connects me to experiences – fears overcome, battles fought, lessons learned – that are far greater than myself. I have always been drawn to words more than pictures. When I train, words are what rattle around in my head and keep me going. While I get ....

    5 Myths About Active Shooters Debunked


    A natural response to a scary, chaotic situation is to try to make sense of it. In the instance of an Active Shooter event, most people start with the shooter. Here are 5 common myths you’ve probably heard before – and the truths to help you prepare for and stay safe in the event of an Active Shooter situation.

    Myth: Perpetrators have low self-esteem
    . I’ve been hearing about this one since 1999, when Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 12 people and then themselves at Columbine High School. This was the first time there was a public scramble to provide answers for such a tragedy, and everything from violent video games and movies to Marilyn Manson to gun laws took ....
