Real World Self-Defense

Learn authentic Krav Maga from the South Bay's original training institute! Vanguard Krav Maga® is a self defense fighting system that emphasizes the importance of environmental awareness and de-escalation to avoid physical confrontation at all costs. As a last resort, our system teaches you how to swiftly and aggressively react and escape to safety.  Krav Maga focuses on evasion and only resorts to physical violence if there is an immediate threat.

The #1 Rule in Krav Maga is AWARENESS

Inflict the most damage, with the least amount of effort

The best way to defend is quickly— learn the best places to strike an attacker in any given situation to quickly neutralize any life-threatening situation.

Effectively throw punches, kicks (combative) to neutralize any threat

Everything in Krav Maga is a STRIKE! In every class basic combatives are harnessed and improved for maximum damage with minimal effort.

Critical Thinking Skills to de-escalate any life-threatening situation

The #1 Rule in Krav Maga is AWARENESS. In addition to teaching self defense techniques, we also teach you critical thinking skills to become more aware of your environment, teaching you what to look out for, common signs of danger, etc. 

Learn the principles of disarming common weapons

With all the YouTube videos out there, it’s easy to see that there are many ways to disarm a weapon. However, you only need to know three basic principles to effectively disarm any weapon.
