XKM Springfield head instructor and owner, Kevin Williams, says that “Krav Maga gives students the tools they need to win in a potentially deadly encounter and gives them the confidence to act appropriately when necessary.
We operate in the extremely high stress environment of a real life attack, and teach students how to function under those conditions. When things go very badly, what we teach ensures they will go home to their families.”
Since 1981, when Krav Maga was adopted as the official defensive tactics system of the Illinois State Police, the system has been taught to thousands of law enforcement officers, US military forces, and civilians in the United States.
You learn techniques ranging from chokes and head locks to how to incapacitate a subject armed with a gun or knife. The training is scenario based and constantly evolving based on the specific needs of the community.
Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer, more secure, and “proficient in a matter of months”, says XKM STL owner, Steve Sulze.
XKM – Xtreme Krav Maga Springfield offers Krav Maga and fitness training to civilians and law enforcement personnel in the Bi-State area at its training centers in Missouri and Illinois and has become the area’s expert on reality based self defense and fitness training.
Israeli Self Defense
Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals. No Non-Sense!
Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bear hugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks.
Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure. …more
