Integrated Fight Seminar: 4/21 | Krav Maga Seattle™

kmseattle.com

We are excited to announce our spring seminar! The Integrated Fight Seminar will be on Saturday 4/21 and is open to KMS members only.
.
The self-defense system of Krav Maga was developed from a variety of martial arts. It draws its influences from Wrestling, Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing, to name a few. The Integrated Fight Seminar will take you back to the roots of Krav Maga, allowing you to better understand and effectively apply the original striking, grappling, and defense techniques that make Krav Maga so effective and powerful.
.
KMS Members: Take your stand-up and ground fighting skills to the next level with in-depth Muay Thai training in the morning and comprehensive ground fighting training in the afternoon.
.
Check out all the details in the blog!

kmseattle.com We are excited to announce our spring seminar: The Integrated Fight Seminar! The seminar will be on Saturday 4/21 and is open to KMS members only.

We are thrilled to partner with the team at Kinetic Sports Rehab to host a mobility workshop on Wednesday 4/18 all about shoulders! This workshop is FREE for KMS Members.

Healthy joints move freely and easily, and you can't perform at your best if mobility restrictions, stability issues, or joint pain are holding you back.

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, which means it's also the most vulnerable to injury. This workshop is designed to gain a deeper understanding of shoulder functionality by teaching methods to eliminate compensations and restore efficient movement patterns. The result? Increased end-range strength so you can fight and move with confidence.

On Wednesday 4/18 from 7pm-8:30pm, join Kinetic Sports Rehab at KMS to learn how to:
• Increase mobility (and why stretching isn’t the answer)
• Condition your joints to become more durable
• Close the gap between passive and active ranges-of-motion
• Improve stability for push, pull, and overhead movements
• Decrease injury risk and improve performance

We look forward to seeing you there!

*KMS Members Only

Self Defense Classes Work. Where Do They Fit in the Age of #MeToo?

seattlemet.com

We are honored to be featured in this fantastic article in Seattle Met Magazine about the importance and efficacy of self-defense training for women, specifically in light of the #metoo and #timesup movements.
.
“[Chau and Cat, co-owners of Krav Maga Seattle] started a Women’s Only program at their South Lake Union gym to cover situational awareness, tactics to reduce vulnerability, and how to avoid a “freeze” when faced with confrontation.”
.
Thank you, Seattle Met, for bringing attention to the importance of women’s self-defense training and why it WORKS. 👊

seattlemet.com Studies—and two very tough Seattle women—have proven that martial-arts-based self-defense moves are effective. Is this the answer to sexual assault?

It takes an extraordinary team of leaders to make KMS what it is today: a place where people from all backgrounds can become safer, stronger, and empowered to live their best life. Today, the KMS coaches and staff took time to celebrate as a team. We are deeply thankful for the top-quality coaching, knowledge, leadership, friendship, support, and so much more that this team brings to our members. 🙏👊

‘It’s either fight or die’: Seattle woman fights off machete-wielding man on New Year’s Day

seattletimes.com

THIS. Ms. Germond is an amazing example of not only surviving a potentially deadly assault, but dominating her attacker. She embodies the self-defense mindset. Here is what she did that made her so successful in this self-defense situation:
1. Situational awareness: She noticed the attacker walking behind her and closing distance between them.
2. Knowing when to fight: When the attacker grabbed Ms. Germond by the throat and she realized that he was not interested in her personal belongings or money, she knew that she had to choose between fighting and dying. She chose to fight.
3. Doing whatever it takes to neutralize the threat: Ms. Germond grabbed the machete by the blade and immediately started using loud verbal commands which alerted her boyfriend to the attack. She put the attacker in a headlock and took him to the ground.
4. Finishing the fight and using her environment: With the help of her boyfriend who had just arrived on the scene, Ms. Germond disarmed the attacker and struck him with a nearby broken off table leg.
.
At Krav Maga Seattle, we ingrain this self-defense mindset in our students in every class that we teach. While there are many benefits of training in Krav Maga, it is first and foremost a self-defense system. It is our mission to give our students the tools and mindset to survive life-threatening attacks such as this.
.
Ms. Germond: we have utmost respect for your actions. Thank you for being a hero within our community.
