So They May Walk in Peace

Today I am grateful that I know that my kids, and every Blackbelt Leader we develop through my Blackbelt Leadership program at Krav Maga Martial Arts, is prepared to walk in peace.

    The original quote, “so that one may walk in peace”, was written by the founder of Krav Maga, Imi Lichtenfeld.

I am grateful for the practical self defense system that he developed and passed on to my teacher, Eyal Yanilov, who taught me.

   The self defense techniques, principles and training methods of krav maga are  the core of the our KMMA system, and prepare students to survive violent attack.

The knowledge that they can defend themselves is one of the reasons that my kids, and other KMMA Blackbelt Leaders, may walk in peace.

But physical violence is only one of the many threats to our children’s well being today.

   They are under attack mentally, spiritually and virtually as well.

I am grateful that we prepare children to survive and thrive in every situation, and empower them to lead, where they’re at and into their futures.

The Blackbelt Leadership Program instills the confidence and competence, discipline, focus, and leadership skills, attributes and attitudes so that our kids may walk in peace- in spite of the circumstances.

     And many of them are training with their parents, so the whole family can do the same.

Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
