Vanguard Krav Maga®

Vanguard Krav Maga® (VKM) began development in 2009 with the purpose of designing a system that would truly be relevant to people here in the United States. The developers of VKM® experienced the shortcomings of other organizations and revised the curriculum to move away from sport, theory, and tradition to provide a simple and effective system that was truly tailored to modern situations in the United States.

Whether you’re an experienced martial artist or a newcomer to the self defense and fitness world, VKM® offers a positive and exciting workout while learning reality-based self defense. The program is designed for people of all ages, experience, and fitness levels. We invite you to try the program free for two weeks with no obligation.

Guiding Principles of Vanguard Krav Maga®

  1. Simple and effective gross motor skill based techniques
  2. Provide a safe training environment where every-day people of all ages and abilities can develop to their full potential and test the effectiveness of their skills
  3. Teach only reality based scenarios that are relevant to what is seen in the U.S. and true to the principles of Krav Maga – No fake commandos; making “soccer moms” train like a SWAT team member; or “fantasy camps” where you’ll train in situations only seen in the movies.
