Krav Maga has been used in Israel for decades to train military units in unarmed and armed self defense tactics, and has been taught to hundreds of units around the world. The techniques you will learn from Crucible Krav Maga in Plano are based in principles of movement, meaning we can apply them to a variety of situations. 

Krav Maga Defenses

Krav Maga is a reality- based self defense system, that is the official fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and has been used by many US law enforcement agencies. Krav Maga was developed as a means of self-defense during the years of conflict prior to and through World War II. Krav Maga was soon adopted by the IDF as the official training system for their military. Since it's birth, Krav Maga has been continually refined to meet the needs of the modern world, and adapted to modern methods of conflict.

Krav Maga is designed as a system to deal with the full timeline of an attack, addressing the period before conflicts, the conflict itself, and what happens after a conflict occurs (pre-fight, fight, post-fight). It incorporates a variety of tactics, defenses, and attacks to accomplish the overall mission: to keep yourself, your unit and your family safe.

In our Krav Maga program, we teach the system in 3D:

  • Timeline of the attacks
  • Variations of those attacks
  • Environment those attacks can happen in

All of these variables affect what can happen during an attack, and ultimately affect what type of defense you use. We will use all of these, and other training tools, to improve our student's ability to respond to stressful situations.

During class you can expect to learn how to defend:

  • Grabs
  • Chokes
  • Knife threats
  • Knife attacks
  • Pistol threats
  • Bat and long weapon threats
  • Bat and long weapon attacks
  • Rifle attacks
  • All of the above standing, in close quarters, in cars, or on the ground

All of our instructors are certified by and have trained with Eyal Yanilov (Master 3), the highest ranked Krav Maga instructor in the world. 

Krav Maga Strike Lab

Crucible Krav Maga's Strike Lab will guide you through the fundamentals of efficient and powerful striking. The Krav Maga system of self defense involves defending yourself by attacking back as early as possible. Each day our Strike Lab classes content will relate directly to the Krav Maga Defenses class. 

Striking (punching, kicking, knees, elbows, etc.) and movement are fundamental aspects of Krav Maga and fighting in general. If you can strike and move well, it will make every technique you attempt that much more effective. These aspects are so important that we offer a striking course every single day. 

Strike Lab is a high intensity course and can be used as a fitness class as well. 

Ground Lab

Our Ground Lab program (Tuesdays at 8pm) is a deep dive into using Krav Maga on the ground, as well as other advanced techniques from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. Fighting on the ground can be a completely different experience from other positions. In this course we will cover advanced versions of:

  • Take downs
  • Escapes
  • Chokes
  • Ground fighting
  • Advancing your position
  • Multiple attackers

Our Ground Lab class in Plano will quickly improve your overall athleticism, and get your Krav Maga techniques more fluid and crisp.
