Andy Feltovich instructs the following:
Krav Maga- Beginners/intermediate (Levels 1 & 2)
Martial Blade Concepts and Modern Self Defense
This is an advanced course that builds on the foundation laid in other Krav Maga Force self defense and fitness classes. The course focuses on blending empty-hand combatives with modern blade and counter-blade techniques, concealed-carry handguns, improvised weapons, and emergency medicine. Realistic scenarios and in-fight weapon access will be emphasized throughout the course. Although there are no formal prerequisites for the course other than membership at Krav Maga Force, the course will assume background knowledge equivalent to the Krav Maga Alliance Level 1 curriculum.
Participants are REQUIRED to have and bring their own pistol holster, MMA gloves, and eye protection.
It is strongly recommended that participants also bring a mouth guard, groin protection, and shin guards.
Krav Maga - Intermediate (Levels 2 and 3)
StrikeFit (Heavy Bag)
StrikeFit is a kickboxing heavy bag workout that involves proper striking to a heavy bag, focus mitts, and thai pads and is supplemented with strength training, body weight exercises, plyometrics, and mobility work. Not only will you learn real striking and real striking combos, but you will burn lots of calories, get in shape, and have fun doing it.
