Meet The Instructor
The head Instructor Christopher at Calgary Shalom Krav Maga has over 10 years experience in Krav Maga, as well as other Martial Arts. His passion is to encourage, empower and build up every student he teaches. Krav Maga is not only an excellent self-defence system, but also a great way to gain confidence and a high level of fitness. Classes are taught on a rotating curriculum, which enables students of every level to effectively learn what they need to know in a class setting.
There are no forms that need to be taught since Krav Maga is a self-defense system and not a martial art. Our students are taught white belt to Level 6 – black belt techniques. Keeping our classes small also allows students to ask questions and keeps everyone under close instruction, so no student gets left behind. Our classes also provide fitness and conditioning through our Cardio Krav Maga circuit training.
This is done with the use of fun and exciting, high-energy music. We train with a strong emphasis on safety and every student’s fitness level is taken into consideration so that we can maximize their conditioning.
Each of our classes starts and ends with a prayer. We encourage all of our students to be an encouragement to each other during class, and seek to build a community through Krav Maga training. At Calgary Shalom Krav Maga, we also focus on the importance of being peacemakers in the world, and treat Krav Maga as the absolute last resort in all situations. Peace before conflict is our motto.
The training curriculum has been prepared by the Global Martial Arts University and was designed for safe and effective learning of the various Krav Maga techniques, taught by a certified Krav Maga instructor.
The system that we teach is good for mind, body, and spirit, which is why it is such a practical form of self-defense. You don’t have to put yourself in a compromising situation that could lead to regrets later. Our instructor is keenly aware of what his students need and he can deliver the training that is best suited to the needs of his individual students.
