    We love what we do.  We care, we continue to empower our members, and the friendships we’ve made over the past decade bind us still.  We’re an organization that puts people first.  Just ask our students.  For our students, we are more than highly skilled Instructors – we are role models, mentors and friends.

    Our Mission

    Krav Maga New York is home to more than 20 Instructors, most of whom are active law enforcement officers, high ranking, in special ops units, or assigned to defensive tactics training.  Collectively, our Instructors have more than 100 years of law enforcement and defensive tactics experience.

    Our instructors have trained and continue to train with the best Krav Maga, 3rd party protection, weapons, tactics, use of force, and other subject matter experts across the United States and overseas, including Israel.

    Few other Krav Maga Training Center nationwide offer our level of skill, knowledge, professionalism, and experience.

    One of our female members described how at Krav Maga New York there is “… no machismo from these instructors. It’s one thing to be able to teach a technique to someone, but to teach it in a way that makes the person feel empowered, is a unique ability.”

    Our Students

    Krav Maga New York students run a wide range of age, profession and fitness motivations. Our students are kids, teens, college students, men, women, moms, dads, accountants, lawyers, doctors, teachers, specialists, tradesmen, first responders…you name it.

    For both our students and instructors, fitness and self-defense is not a fad. It is something that they choose to make time for, to improve their physical capabilities, gain confidence and have the tactical skills to deal with confrontation. This is what our instructors seek to teach and why our students train with us.

    For all our students, every class represents personal accomplishment, progression and change. After the Trial Class and Beginner Level, the majority of our students train with us long term because they thrive at Krav Maga New York. Our instructors are skilled; we have a supportive and caring culture, and the workout is like no other. The friendships our students make are real, and the skills they gain last a lifetime.

    For our younger students, Krav Maga classes make them stronger, courageous, confident, and Verbal Self Defense is teaching them the life skills that will define their character. Our students find the culture at Krav Maga New York fun, and our younger students value our instructors as mentors.

    Here is what our students say about us:

    Great work Davide. I’m proud to be one of your students. You are building more than students. You are building a Krav Maga family.
    Paul F.

    I had a great time in class. I was happily surprised to see Ed as the instructor. I have known him for over 25 years. He did an excellent job. The class was individually the best I have ever had. That is not an exaggeration. I’ve had hundreds of hours in defensive tactics from organizations ranging from the Army to the State Police. In one hour, I felt that I got more real life practical training than in all the previous courses. I’m looking forward to the next sessions.
    James M.

    I was so impressed with the class. Davide’s teaching style is excellent, the people made me feel so welcome and I am completely surprised at how much I learned in one lesson. I am looking forward to a long journey with Krav Maga.

    This was by far the best course that I attended this year. The instructors were knowledgeable and proficient. The level of training was appropriate. As an instructor myself, I recognized and appreciated the instructors working with the different levels in the class and providing benefits to all the students. Ground fighting is underrated in many Police DT programs. I feel that they should definitely be brought back next year and maybe even expand more into stand up fighting.

    Davide, I want you to know that I will carry what you taught me (in many ways) with me until I am dust… I want to thank you for being in the top 4 teachers that have influenced me in such a positive way in my life to date…. you are special.
    Vinny M.

    It was such a positive atmosphere in class last night. People felt so good and the Instructors were great. So many people were expressing that yesterday. You should know that you have done a great job and your students are very happy.
    Patricia F.

    It only takes one person to change the way Law Enforcement trains and in this area Davide is that one person.
    Mike D.

    What marks a great instructor is his ability to teach in a way that impacts every aspect of a student’s life. That’s what Davide and Chris have done for me. I’m truly thankful.
    Matt N.

    I’ve been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for years and have always wanted to venture into the world of Krav Maga. Thanks to the NYTOA guys, I finally got the opportunity to mix styles! The instructors were amazing and this course is a must for all Police Officers!
    New York Tactical Officers Association (NYTOA) Attendee

    My son and I are LOVING your school! We are just so happy we found you. Your school is our new family and we are both just so content. Thank you for that. Seriously. I literally can’t thank you and your Krav family enough for helping us to heal, let go of the old school, and open our hearts, minds and muscles to the new and improved way of self-defense. Your family is now our family. I am just so grateful.
    Donna L.

    You have built a wonderful institution with KMNY that changes lives Davide, especially with how people think. Not a lot of leaders can say that.
