Krav Maga, Karate, Kickboxing: Self-Defense Classes In the City

Editors posted on 07 October

Ten-Second Takeaway

Every time we open the newspaper or an online news portal these days, there’s a crime here, a robbery there. As much as we love our Dilli, there’s no denying it can be a tough place to live in. Here’s how we look at it—either we constantly look over our shoulders fearfully, or we take control, learn to defend ourselves, and walk boldly.

We vote for the latter.

Krav Maga India

Founded by Imrich Sde-Or, this centre boasts a range of self-defense techniques, Krav Maga being their area of expertise. All of the programmes have been formulated keeping civilians {men, women and children alike} in mind, with techniques that could be life-savers in real life scenarios.

Jeet Kune Do Athletic Association

Arun Sharma heads the India sector of this centre, which specialises in all forms of martial art and functional fitness. They don’t define Jeet Kune Do as a style, rather as a metamorphosis that the body goes through. They’ve also worked this into their programmes, making the martial arts a part of your very core.
