We're sorry... this event is closed.

It's a well known fact that most physical altercations end up on the ground. Possessing the ability to defend yourself should you end up there could mean the difference between life and death. In this class, we will cover misc techniques but also outline the differences between the streets and the mat. All interested parties are welcome… no previous Krav Maga experience is required. Please "READ MORE" and check out the description below.

One of the most popular chokes ever used is the "Matador de Leao" (Lion Killer)... more commonly referred to as the rear naked choke. If properly applied, the defender has approximately 5-15 seconds before they are put to sleep. In this class, we will not only cover how to PROPERLY apply the rear naked choke, but we will also demonstrate techniques to defend against it if you are attacked with this potentially lethal technique. We will also learn how to defend ourselves from someone punching you from the mount position.
