Combat F.I.T. Krav Maga 

  Self Defense Training in Real World Environments

The history of Krav Maga

Krav maga was developed as a self-defense system in 1948 by Imi Sde-Or Lichtenfeld. To create such
a practical system, Grandmaster Imi combined the most effective techniques from
Japanese: judo, aikido, jujitsu, with additional moves from American: boxing and wrestling. In
the 1990s, the best moves from: muay thai, Chinese: wing chun, and Brazilian Jujitsu were also
incorporated. While Krav Maga was designed for the Israeli Defense Forces it is now utilized by
Special Forces and law enforcement around the world. Survival-minded civilians now also train
in the Krav maga for its benefits in stress, strength and mental conditioning.

Krav Maga Personal Training

Krav Maga- New Beginners

We conduct special training sessions for brand new beginners at Crossfit (XFT) or other set locations. Our tuesday  IKM (Israeli Style Krav Maga) 'drop-in classes' progressive in nature, are designed for vetted beginners wishing to advance into our other IKM and TKM classes. These tuesday 'open training' drop-ins, are open to those over 25 years of age. In these, Experienced and Advance Level students partake in the training as well. Below is an explanation of this program.

    Our Beginners Israeli Krav Maga (קרב מגע) courses follow the Integrated-Modern Krav Maga training protocols, developed and refined over the years. Civilians with the mental fortitude will experience intense training and conditioning thus preparing them for the reality of violence on the street.

Safety is paramount but reality training always takes precedence. Students learn basic block, kicks and punching as well as escapes from restrictive holds; bear hugs, headlocks and chokes. 

Beginner P1 to Experienced students P2 cover:

-Focused awareness and aggression

-Multi-tasking during confrontations

-Verbal control and VIP protection

-De-escalation and diffusing tactics

-Block, strikes, chokes and holds

-Mob attacks and counter tactics

Privates- One to One Training

This option is only open to those individuals who have passed our entry protocol, scheduled and completed the foundations class.

    These Personal Coaching sessions cover TKM  "theoretical, technical and tactical" krav maga concepts. Most TKM classes are held at CrossFit (XFT) or other predetermined locations.

In these private "Personal Training' TKM sessions we cover: ground fighting, restraint-control tactics, restrictive hold releases and street fighting. VIP protection tactics are also covered. Knife seminars to include improvised weapons are open to select students. Firearm principles are taught in different sessions.

    Combat F.I.T. reserves the right to refuse instructional services, to include personal training in tactics we believe the student is not prepared for. We dictate what you learn. Greenbacks do not influence what we teach. Your skill level, character and humility do.


Personal Training Clients Cover:

-Innocent bystander protection

-Ground fighting and restrictive holds

Corporate Business Sessions

This training option is open to select businesses. Since we operate as a PMA, WE select who we train. Hence the businesses contacting our team must fully understand that our instructors (during tactical trainings): occasionally filter their language, seldom are PC and  will never wear face coverings. If you are good with this then we can work together, otherwise...consider checking out other trainers around Tucson.

So, in these privately run classes, we will send a team of instructors to your location, with gear and a tailor made lesson plan for your group. We will cover foundational movements, beginner tactics, and if requested, more physically oriented training using reality based scenarios. These can range from situations in parking lots, road rage, home invasions and workplace assaults.


Remember, it is YOUR duty to know your people. Israeli Krav Maga as a Combat Art, can be viewed as 'violent'...hence not suitable for everyone. OUR duty is to maintain Krav Maga's integrity and train practitioners in the art of survival under duress.

Group training includes:

-Threat awareness and risk reduction

-Workplace violence deterrence/reaction

-Carjacking prevention and response

How do I sign up for the adult Krav Maga course?

First, request the 'Training Application' by calling our team during our office hours. Once submitted we will then conduct a background check. If you are accepted to train, we will then reserve a spot in our scheduled "Foundations Session". Passing this screening process may grant you the opportunity to attend any of the weekly foundations classes and subsequent IKM courses. The above protocol may seem too exigent to some but, it maintains the integrity of the IKM program and the safety of its students. Note that only honest and humble individuals with strong moral character/ethos are accepted into the IKM training program. Now, if you are a corporate or group coordinator, then please call our team to see if we are a good match for your group.

CFC® Policies - Student Expectations

All those that are accepted to train and enter our facility agree to all CFC Terms and Conditions. All must read, accept and sign a Liability Waiver and Release Form. By accepting the above stated and signing the produced forms, all students are waiving all rights to compensation to potential cases of injury.

Any of the aforementioned will preclude students from participating in any our our IKM, TKM or CFC sessions. All of our CFC consultants and instructors follow and fully adhere to the US Constitutions Equal Protection Laws and civil rights act.

Group Safety Sessions

Many businesses, social groups and synagogues seek unique ways to keep their members informed and safe. If you are an HR benefits representative, member training coordinator or Rabbi then please consider one of our unique "Safety Awareness" or "Personal Empowerment" sessions. Our CFC® Instructors can focus lesson plans according to your training needs. We cover 'soft' instruction on awareness, deterrence and de-escalation tactics. In our more 'hard core' sessions we cover physical self defense techniques, pad striking and reality based scenarios. Keep in mind our instructors operate under our PMA protocols hence they will not wear face coverings nor will they filter their words during tactical trainings. Accepting this, contact our team if you would like to schedule a training session at your location. We book five weeks out so contact us soon.

    Law Enforcement Notice

    Krav Maga for those interested in the Military or Law Enforcement

    Our focus here at Combat Fit is to train our LE students (mostly coming from DHS, CBP and DOC) in unarmed combat. While POST, requires that officers get eight hours of Defense tactics (DT) training quarterly or every two years, the unarmed component of training becomes a 'perishable skill'. Firearms training is the most scheduled and combatives training the most overlooked. Subject restraint, Weapons retention and use are all important factors in the "lethal force" continuum that we cover here at Combat Fit. In addition to the latter training, we often 'condition' our LE students to operate under extreme duress while unarmed. These humble individuals take the initiative to train with us and know that they must endure some of the most rigorous and unique conditioning methods. This with the understanding that this 'conditioning' will benefit them and their decision making skills on the street if they can not use their firearms. At combat fit, we train those LEO's to shift the mindset of relying on their sidearm to that of transitioning from a low level unarmed standpoint. Some of our LE students work undercover (UC) assignments; are correctional officers working in prisons, or they just understand that they may one day be off duty with their families and not carrying. 

    We often challenge our LE students to fight at close range with multiple subjects carrying edged weapons. Potential variables such as a weapon malfunctions and physical injuries are also added into the mix. If your schedule allows, consider a 'drop-in class' and make Krav Maga, one unique training option that will save your life.  Need proof... read this article.

    Current LEO's and CBP please note that our Technical and Tactical Krav Maga courses present certain techniques that may infringe upon your departments tactical and training policies. Now, if decide to train with us here at Combat Fit Krav Maga and your work schedule varies, then consider doing a drop in class as your time permits. Please call our CFC® team to discuss details.
