Our Main Goal
Calgary Shalom Krav Maga teaches Israeli self-defense techniques while encouraging the students to remain peacemakers. The head instructor Christopher , is very passionate about and committed to educating his students and giving glory to Jesus in class and in life.
His training emphasis is based on safety and respect while focusing on remaining constantly aware of one's surroundings, de-escalating a situation and remaining safe in real-world situations. Calgary Shalom Krav Maga offers several programs. Private Krav Maga training, a family and kids Krav Maga Ministry, as well as adult Krav Maga classes. The Krav Maga Ministry is based on Biblical teachings, prayer, and being peacemakers.
His main goal is ‘peace’, and is stated in the name. In Hebrew Shalom means peace, and keeping that the focus in all situations is important. Those with serious aggression issues and egos are not welcome. The program training is centered on self-defense that helps to escape a dangerous or life-threatening situation. Krav Maga is an effective method that helps neutralize a threat in a real life conflict.
The first thing that is taught is how to avoid the situation and then, if necessary, physically protect oneself. Krav Maga is a form of self-defense developed for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces that comes from a combination of techniques and martial arts, such as kickboxing, jiu ji and boxing.
Our self-defense program helps participants strengthen their body, learn protective Krav Maga techniques, and challenges the mind. We provide the highest standards for Krav Maga training and have a top-rated instructor. Our program provides real-work Krav Maga defense techniques, combined with spiritual awareness.
We often appeal to those who want to defend themselves without bringing physical harm to others. Unfortunately, some do not believe that this is possible but we are here to prove that it is possible.
Anyone who is peaceable and who is not prone to aggression should attend. They are taught the importance of safety, consideration, and kindness. Students who also enjoy experiencing a more peaceful existence can benefit from our classes, taught in a fun and light atmosphere that encourages peacefulness.
Anyone who is committed to effectively defending him or herself through a non-combative method would greatly benefit from our classes at Calgary Krav Maga Self Defense. After taking the Krav Maga class, chances are that you will realize just how much aggression is necessary with other forms of self-defense classes.
However, you will likely feel better about the techniques that you will learn through our classes because you won’t have to work yourself up to respond appropriately to the situation. The emotions that you feel will be more natural and you will respond in a calm yet strategic manner that has a positive end result for everyone involved.
You will be a lot more confident in your ability to effectively defend yourself without ever making physical contact with someone. In those cases, it does more harm than good.
