Who we are
Our Core Values
Our values are built upon mutual trust, encouragement, and accountability. We help our students to push themselves to the best of their abilities, resulting in healthier and more empowered individuals. Our student base is an incredible community of people from all walks of life who motivate one another, share their goals, and hold each other accountable.
Krav Maga Maryland’s mission is to make people from all walks of life the safest, healthiest, strongest, and most confident version of themselves. We do this by providing the very best self-defense and functional fitness classes, group and individual coaching for preventative safety, wellness, nutrition, and mindset coaching.
Krav Maga is not your traditional martial art. It was developed in a hostile environment in which students could not devote many hours to self-defense training. Because of this, the Krav Maga system was designed to bring students to a high level of proficiency in a short period of time. There are no forms (katas), rules, or set combinations as reactions to attacks. Rather, students learn to defend themselves through repetition of techniques, muscle memory, and instinct. Krav Maga training focuses on teaching simple self-protection techniques that are specifically catered to reality-based attack situations.
We know, treadmills are boring. Luckily, all of our classes are an excellent workout. In addition to Krav Maga, we also offer high intensity fitness classes with certified instructors to complement your training. Some of the classes offered include: Heavy Bag, Thai Pads, Strength & Conditioning, Bootcamp Conditioning, KravFit, and more.

“I started at Krav Maga Maryland in March of 2018 through their 6 Week Challenge. I’ve had such great success in building fitness, strength, and confidence here! The instructors are all genuinely interested in seeing each of their students succeed with whatever your goal(s) might be. You can and will be pushed to your limit during any of the classes offered here, but you will be a much stronger person once you get through it.
Personally I’ve really stepped out of my comfort zone by joining KMMD and I’m 100% glad that I did.”

“Been a member for about 3 years and hate when I have to miss a session. The instructors are serious about self-defense and fitness. They are very supportive, and extremely approachable and knowledgeable. The other students become like family as you partner from session to session to practice techniques. I'm a martial artist that has found great value in Krav Maga as a combative, and I certainly feel more confident in my ability protect myself and my family.”

“I really love this gym. I decided to join on a whim, almost a month ago, in the hopes of getting in shape and learning new skills, and this place is wonderful. The instructors encourage you, as do the other students. They want to push you to be successful, without pushing you tIll you break. They encourage you to grow and get more fit and better at the exercises, without putting you down for maybe not being able to do everything right off the bat. I highly recommend this place if you want a fun, challenging environment, with a staff that cares about your development.”
