Got Krav Camp?


I have been taking students out for weekend “krav camp” twice a year for over 16 years now.

It used to be a bit more hard core, at least as far as living arrangements…

we used to actually sleep out in the elements, train in the dirt and stank the whole weekend long.

a lot of the campers used to sleep in the big GP medium tents we had; i used to sleep by the fire under the stars.


Now, for the last several years, we go out to the beautiful Word of Life Retreat.

Our joke is we used to go like the Army and now we go like the Air Force. 🙂

As I have veterans of all the services on my team, it’s a fun reference.


But the quality of training has not diminished.

In fact, we have evolved the weekend activities to include our Blackbelt Retreat and Testing, and all KMMA students are also invited to join the Blackbelts for the Saturday training.

It’s an amazing experience for those that are up to it, and a great way to level up, catch up and/or train up for your own coming Blackbelt weekend!

And this year, as we have so many amazing trainers at camp, we even have beginner and youth slots available!
