KravZone is Bay Area’s Krav Maga Center

What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga was developed in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as an extremely practical and efficient way to defend and counterattack. It has since evolved into a disciplined self-defense training system that is continuously refined by the IDF and taught in military and law enforcement organizations around the world. Krav Maga was adopted by many law enforcement agencies worldwide and became very popular due to Krav Maga’s efficiency and easy learning curve.

Krav Maga is a unique form of combat training intended to build mental and physical aspects of a person’s self defense mechanism. Krav Maga originated from various forms of fighting techniques combined to derive a practical street fighting style. Krav Maga is a very practical technique suited for everyone – men and women, youth and adult.

Why KravZone?

At KravZone we believe in hard work and non-compromised training, but also in friendship and teamwork! We train together with no ego or competition and our goal is to make our community stronger and healthier. As a beginner student, you will gain real skills and advantages to face hostile situations within a few months.  As an advanced student, KravZone will bring you to the highest level of martial arts, and you will be able to face any kind of fighter or style.

EXPERT ORIGINS: KravZone was founded by a former head of hand-to-hand combat training in the Lotar – the Counter Terror School of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Shlomi Katz trained the IDF Special Forces for over a decade. After his service, Shlomi coached many Krav Maga fighters and MMA fighters.  Among his students are many national full-contact champions and world champions in Pankration MMA.

KravZone, Bay Area’s Krav Maga center, provides training in self defense, fitness and mixed martial arts to the South Bay Area including Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Palo Alto and San Jose. Training programs cover preschoolers through adults, and beginners through professionals.

We keep in touch and stay up to date with the relevant organizations. We keep refining our style and methods to face new challenges and always strive to improve and get better as teachers and fighters. We are the formal reps of Wingate Institute so our instructors can be certified by the most recognized Krav Maga center in the world.

KravZone is the official representative of Wingate Institute. The Wingate Institute is Israel’s National Center for Physical Education and Sports. KravZone’s instructors led the Krav Maga training of Israeli Special Forces for over 20 years.

We are a non-competitive school. This means that all of our students get the same focus and priorities and we train without ego or competition between our students.

Our wide background in martial arts (pankration, karate , BJJ, kickboxing, and sambo ) allows us to elevate our advanced students to the highest levels in martial arts.

KravZone is more than a krav maga and martial arts dojo, it is a second home for many who practice together in a safe, respectful, friendly and ego-free environment. This wonderful community creates a great atmosphere. Each class becomes a fun adventure. Our students reach high levels of Krav Maga within a short period of time, but they keep practicing at KravZone for many years.
