Ute Hummler

Instructor

Ute started training Krav Maga in late 2017. Having never encountered the world of Martial Arts before, she quickly became fascinated with the explosiveness and efficiency of Krav Maga, the concept of a timeline and that everyone can learn these techniques to defend themselves. She appreciates the physical strengthening and fitness aspect of training, but is even more excited about the fact how Krav Maga is hugely beneficial on a mental and emotional level by becoming able to evaluate and assess potentially difficult and dangerous situations.

This 5 week session will provide women with the tools required to deal with a potential violent situation. You will learn the "soft skills" (ie how to avoid looking like a "victim", listening to your gut, and how to avoid potential dangerous situations) and the "hard skills" (ie learning to strike vulnerable targets, as well as techniques that combat common attacks, such as hair grabs, wrist grabs, chokes, and knife threats) needed to reduce your chance of becoming a victim.

 John and Ute are wonderful. It is clear that they are incredibly passionate about what they do and go above and beyond to empower us each class. Somehow in only an hour, they manage to provide caring and personalized support to each person while also managing the group and teaching new techniques and approaches each class. They not only teach how to defend against a variety of attacks, but also how to minimize risk and understand psychological contexts. I am grateful to have learned from such excellent empowering instructors.

 The introductory class taught by instructor John was a mix of demonstration and scenario based trainings. He taught simple and highly effective self defense moves and increased my situational awareness tremendously. I will be going back for more training, and would highly recommend the course for anyone who has faced a threat or unwanted attention.
