Krav Maga is not a competitive martial art; it is a combat system developed and tested on the battlefield and the street. It is a no-nonsense, reality based self-defense system that is designed to efficiently deal with violent street confrontations.
Impact Krav Maga Self-Defense is a school for people who want ongoing Krav Maga education. It is the only school in San Diego officially affiliated with Krav Maga Global (KMG), an Israeli Federation headed by Eyal Yanilov, the highest ranking Krav Maga Instructor in the world and the founder of modern Krav Maga.
Impact Krav Maga Self-Defense is dedicated to providing the most realistic Krav Maga training available. We therefore teach the most current, up-to-date Krav Maga techniques, principles and fighting tactics that are continuously tested, proven, and updated by Eyal Yanilov. We utilize the most current research-supported instructional methodologies available. We do not subject students to rote memorization drills or other outdated approaches to teaching. We teach students how to think, not just how to go through the motions. We offer a safe and friendly training environment, a small student to instructor ratio and a serious approach to self-defense and fighting. We provide technical, physical and tactical training that educates students on how to successfully defend themselves and family against violent street attacks.
Our instructors are certified by Eyal Yanilov, and continue their Krav Maga training under his tutelage. As per Impact regulations, all instructors must annually renew their instructor certifications in order to maintain Active Krav Maga Instructor status. Therefore, our instructors regularly train and are routinely tested by Eyal Yanilov to adhere to the set requirements. Furthermore, Impact instructors regularly cross train in other fighting systems, such as boxing, jiu jitsu and Muay Thai. Ultimately, this ensures that Impact offers its students the highest standard of Krav Maga, self defense and combat instruction.
