I have trained in this location for a number of years in Krav Maga. The instructors create a safe and encouraging environment for all ages, skill levels, and levels of conditioning. They have an obvious level of proficiency in the curriculum that has been published by the Krav Maga Alliance while still being able to expand with tips on how maneuvers may be applied more effectively. Krav Maga is the quickest route from knowing absolutely nothing about defending yourself to becoming an able combatant in a variety of situations, and each level builds upon the previous one (from learning how to throw a proper punch in level 1 through defending from an armed assailant on the other side of a countertop in levels 5 and 6).Beyond the high quality of instruction, the sense of team and camaraderie that I experience with my fellow students is built quickly and strongly. This is because it is a unique experience that you are sharing with these people and you have to trust them to practice safely just as they must trust you. Class after class of sweating, training and sparring with the same people is a relationship that you can only know if you've been party to it. I have built friendships with these people that I see twice a week for an hour far more quickly than I do with people at work that I see every day for 8 hours.

This team is absolutely amazing! They care about my daughter and push her to help her grow. We have moved, but still continue to make the drive as this has been such a good experience for us.

I’ve been with Kovars at a different location, but i’ve taken up BJJ recently with their program, it’s fun and has a great learning environment, great place to make friends as well.

Excellent place to come in train. Teresa is a very knowledgeable and fun instructor. She does an amazing job helping us drill technique and learn application of different Krav skills. Best gym ever, would highly recommend to anyone looking to get into Krav Maga for self defense skills. Will be a student for life and looking forward to continue the journey to black belt at this gym.

I went there from maybe 2016 to 2020. Loved all of my instructors and I learned a lot.

Such an encouraging program for my 3rd grader. We have been going since he was 6. The instructors work magic with him and he is always happier when he leaves and repeats some great lessons about being a good person outside of class. I would highly recommend.
