krav maga

Krav Maga /krɑːv məˈɡɑː/ is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient + brutal counter-attacks. Krav has a philosophy emphasizing threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive & offensive maneuvers, and aggression. Rogue’s dynamic curriculum is a revitalized take on Krav Maga, refocusing on the principles of self-defense and the immediacy required of combat.

Krav is a mindset. It's a system that operates off of principles, not just techniques. This systematic approach allows us to evolve. At Rogue, we firmly believe in absorbing what is useful and letting go of what isn't but knowing WHY it isn't. We train because we want to be equipped to protect ourselves + loved ones, no matter what the situation.
