The word busy was an understatement. Anna was a 40+ professional woman frustrated with the amount of weight she had accumulated over the years. But who could blame her? She was doing it all on her own without much of a staff to speak of. Anna left the corporate world two and a half years ago to launch her own human resources firm with a focus on diversity recruitment. In between strategizing on her computer and giving presentations around the country, there wasn’t much time to exercise. Krav Maga ads kept populating in her Instagram timeline. That’s when she finally decided to break a destructive pattern.

Krav Maga Benefits
Since launching her own business, Anna had experienced serious bouts of cash flow. The first year was touch and go. She wondered if she would have to leave the big city and go home to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. All the stress was taking its toll. First her hair started falling out then cystic acne began to accumulate on her beautiful face. Anna found that Krav Maga taught her how to perform better under pressure. She became more aware of her surroundings. In addition to losing weight, she learned self defense prevention techniques that would serve her as she travelled from one corner of the earth to the next.
Walk in Peace
Imi Lichtenfeld developed this systematic approach to self defense in Czechoslovakia during the rise of Fascism. He was fed up with being attached by people gorged with hate. He once said, “[. . . I developed Krav Maga . . .] so we can walk in peace.” Anna was due to travel to Detroit, Michigan to give a presentation at Ford Motor Company. She had read that there were 64,000 Black women and girls missing in the United States. Abductions from parking lots and parks were at an all time high. Anna took that information and used it as fuel to prepare for what might come her way.
Affordable Private Lessons
Anna was renting a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a large backyard in Calgary. She had two large boxers as constant companions. Although Anna had a home based business, she faced mounting expenses on her own monthly. She was raised that health is wealth. This time, she actually listened to her mom and put her wellbeing before her bottom line. To her surprise, she discovered that she was able to work Krav Maga private lessons into her budget seamlessly. Instead of picking up a $10 cup of iced Frappuccino daily from Starbucks, she made iced coffee at home.
