Krav Maga or contact combat is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Force, as well as law enforcement agencies around the country. It is a reality-based system that was developed to be used effectively on the streets by men and women of all sizes and uses simple and instinctive movements that are easy to learn and remember, especially under high stress situations. The basic principles of Krav Maga are threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression; in other words, recognize danger at the earliest stages, react without hesitation and with a seamless explosion of violence, and eliminate the danger as quickly as possible by delivering a series of combatives to the vulnerable parts of your attacker’s body. With Krav Maga, you will become a walking human weapon.
Objective: To survive by whatever means necessary and become a master of controlled violence and chaos.
Krav Maga Force offers reality based self-defense, as well as, a variety of bootcamps and fitness programs that will train students to defend themselves, using the combatives, techniques, and principles of krav maga, a self-defense system, based on hand-to-hand combat utilized by Israeli military and adopted by law enforcement agencies in the United States. This training will provide students with an efficient and effective means of recognizing danger, addressing it immediately, and neutralizing the threat quickly by focusing on the vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body. Through hard work and dedicated training, students will develop the physical ability to defend themselves, along with an increased mental strength, self-confidence, and the mindset necessary to survive a violent attack, by whatever means necessary.

I’ve trained at Krav Maga Force for almost a year. Tony and the other instructors are all great! They provide personalized instruction to help you become both physically and mentally stronger. I leave every class feeling strong and empowered. As a smaller woman, I have never felt more confident that I could defend myself if need be. I would recommend classes here to everyone I know.

Dropped in on the recommendation of one of my teachers here in the Detroit area. Great crew, great class. Didn’t even mind the burpees. Tony is a friendly and very helpful instructor. Walked us through some techniques in an easy to understand manner. I’ll definitely come back when I’m in town.

I've trained for several years on the west coast when work brought me to Chicago for a week. Krav Maga Force was gracious enough to let me drop in on their classes while I was here, and I was impressed by the great vibe of their classes. The instructor s are enthusiast ic and encouraging, and there was clear camaraderie among the students. It was tough and fierce and they really emphasized the fighting spirit and not giving up - one of the core tenets of Krav Maga. Don't be off-put by the aggressiveness if you are trying it for the first time - this is what will help to keep you alive and keep you safe! You can't give up when your life and well-being are on the line! Just start at your own pace and then ramp it up as your endurance builds over time.

I have been training at Krav Maga Force for about two years now and I have to say that things have changed, continuing to be more progressive, more enlightened, and even more engaged with their students and community. All the instructors have a love for teaching us how to protect ourselves, they don't allow us to give up on ourselves or each other. This has fostered a community of friendship who train with purpose and forward momentum toward a goal of everyone going home safe. Please don't miss out on Krav Maga Force if you are looking to learn self defense!

The woman's group at my company booked a private class and it was fantastic! Tony and the other instructor provided a truly memorable experience and we will definitely be returning in the new year for another session. I know we all walked out of there a little taller. Until next time! Thanks again!

I cannot do justice to this place in a review, it is beyond top notch! I have had the pleasure and blessing to be a part of this school for a few years and I have to say I am very grateful for these professionals. The owner/ head instructor brings so much experience and passion to each and every student. Tony teaches real world real life self defense in a very easy to understand manner. All of the the instructors are extremely well qualified and bring intensity and reality into the classroom. I also have to give a shout out to the students as well, they are kind and supportive, Everyone has your back! KRAV MAGA FORCE RULES!!!

I can't express how much I LOVE this place!! Great energy and even better instructors!! They push you to your limit if not beyond which I appreciate so much! You leave drenched in sweat after each class. Whether you're having a stressful or wonderful day, a pair of gloves and a punching bag is never a bad idea!

I joined Krav Maga Force after 8 years in the Marine Corps. I have had the opportunity to study under the Marine Corps Martial Arts system and the US Army Combatives program. I studied Muay Thai and western boxing at civilian schools and studied Krav Maga at 2 different schools before Krav Maga Force.
What makes Krav Maga Force stand out is their dedication and emphasis on real world training. It is also very important to me that Tony, as well as other instructors, are veteran police officers and can draw on their real-world experience to guide and teach based on what really works under stress. The instructors work hard to provide a safe, but intense training environment. They are friendly, knowledgeable and articulate teachers, but can still push students hard to get used to the stresses they will encounter in a real-world confrontation. I was very happy to find a school that focuses on real world applied self-defense.
