Philosophy

Our self-defense system is not a martial art. We do not focus on the artistry of movement. We focus on swift action that will destabilize and neutralize opponents. Defensive Fighting Systems’ training consists of skill building and realistic stress inducing scenarios, which are integrated with cardio-reactive physical demands, that are all focused on preparing your mind and body for immediate reactions to danger. 

Our hope is for a violent-free world; we know that this is not always the case. We truly believe everyone, regardless of perceived limitations, should have the opportunity to learn self-defense.  

Defensive Fighting Systems strives to create an environment that is welcoming and inclusive. We do not tolerate inappropriate aggressive behavior. We value our relationship with each member because we believe in building a community of defensive-minded citizens.  The mission of Defensive Fighting Systems is to provide a Krav Maga self-defense training environment that is welcoming and accessible to all, adaptive, and customizable, which strives to meet our members where they are.  We do not bend our member to fit the system; we bend the system to fit the member.
