Former: Corrections Officer, Firefighter/EMT, 911 Dispatcher
Level 1 Certified Instructor, Blue Belt – Krav Maga Federation of America
As a Military/Law Enforcement professional who has trained in various martial arts and forms of self defense, I’ve found that Krav Maga is a no-nonsense approach to obtain awareness and confidence in today’s world. I have yet to find a more easy to learn or practical form of self-defense.
Being a Krav Maga assistant/practitioner has taken my experience to a whole new level. Seeing the student’s progress with their strength, technique and confidence is incredibly inspiring, and I learn so much by working with them and seeing everyone progress. I have been very fortunate in dealing with the very best instructors around, and hope to pay that knowledge of self-defense forward.
Brandon served in the U.S. Army as an Infantryman for 7 years with several combat tours in the Middle East. Upon discharge, he worked for the Virginia Department of Corrections and attained the rank of Sergent.
Martial Arts and Self Defense experience include Krav Maga, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and the U.S. Army's Combatives Program.
The core foundation of Krav Maga utilizes natural movements and reactions’ for defense, combined with an immediate and decisive counterattack. One of the key principals of Krav Maga is to perform both defensive and offensive combatives simultaneously.
Our training program teaches the techniques of Krav Maga as originally taught by Imi Lichtenfeld while incorporating the science of neurological strikes that are an integral part of the curriculum developed by Alain Cohen in his Krav Maga Security program. The instructors at Urban Defense Krav Maga are officially certified instructors under the Krav Maga Federation of America, authorized by the Israeli Sport Ministry Wingate Institute so you can be confident that you are receiving the most authentic and up to date training available. We are fully committed to our students and to our community to provide the highest level of training and instruction.

Yes. UDKM incorporates extensive ground-fighting techniques into its curriculum. While we don’t encourage taking an assailant to the ground, during a confrontation there is a high probability that the fight may end up on the ground. We don’t train for submissions or tap-out, our training will emphasize ending the confrontation as quickly as possible by executing joint dislocations or worse.
*As with all techniques covered in your training, it is the responsibility of each individual to understand and abide by the laws on the use of reasonable and excessive force and disengage once the threat of danger has been eliminated.
Yes and no. We do not have beverage or snack machines so bring your own beverage or snacks to class. (No alcohol permitted on premises).
As your training progresses, you will have the option to participate in light sparring sessions. To participate in these sparring sessions you will be required to purchase your own headgear, shin guards, sparring gloves and a mouth guard. Men are highly encouraged to wear a cup (groin protection). You may also wear chest a protector if desired.
*Talk to us about special student discounts on all sparring gear.
Wear clothing that you don’t mind getting pulled, stretched or otherwise dirty. You will sweat in class so light but strong clothing is recommended. Generally a heavy cotton t-shirt and sweat pants will suffice. Women are encouraged to wear a sports style bra under their shirt.
You are permitted to wear knee, wrist or elbow wraps/pads etc… as long as they don’t have a hard plastic or metal shell.
Outdoor shoes are not permitted on the mats. You must have a separate pair of wrestling/mat shoes to train on the mats. This is to protect our mats from damage and to help keep them clean. You may also wear socks or you may go barefoot.
*When you become an active student, you are required to wear the UDKM standard uniform which consists of a black UDKM t-shirt (which you will be given) and black long sweat or running pants.
No. Krav Maga is for everyone. Krav Maga was designed for anyone to learn self defense quickly and easily regardless of your physical stature or those who have no self defense training. Krav Maga utilizes basic and instinctive techniques and teaches the use of these techniques in advanced applications to neutralize the threat quickly.
You’ll find your training at Urban Defense Krav Maga to be both fun and rewarding leaving you with a greater sense of self confidence and awareness.

Yes and no. Krav Maga is not a martial art but a self-defense system. There are no katas or choreographed routines. Krav Maga utilizes simultaneous counter-offensives using ‘Retzev’ (continuous combat motion) as its core foundation. Krav Maga, much like MMA incorporates aspects from other martial art systems into its curriculum. Krav Maga utilizes techniques from Boxing, Wrestling, Judo, Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu but Krav Maga has no rules. Krav Maga teaches instinctive defense techniques against armed and unarmed assailants, both standing and from the ground and also teaches the use of improvised weapons.
A very good question that we hear all the time but before I tell you what you’ll learn, let me first respond by saying this… Depending on your commitment you will learn a wide range of skills and techniques. We will teach you many things but its up to you to put fourth the time and effort to train on a regular basis. As with any martial art or self-defense system, your training should be a way-of-life, not something you do occasionally to pass the time. We understand that everyone is busy juggling careers, kids, school etc… and we’re not saying you need to train 5 days a week or even 3 days a week (although it helps) but it should be something you’re serious about and you should make every effort to train on a regular basis.
As a general overview, you will be taught and train in some of the following:
Situational awareness (i.e., avoidance, when and how to escalate and/or de-escalate)
How to strike on many angles using fists, elbows, open hand, forearms and fingers
How to kick on many angles using feet, shin and knees
Defense against strikes
Defense against kicks
Rolls and Falls (trust us, these are important)
Offensive and defensive techniques from the ground (e.g, strikes, kicks, chokes, escapes, arm-bars, knee/ankle locks, small joint manipulation etc…)
Defense against multiple forms of chokes (front, side and rear)
Defense against multiple forms of wrist grabs
Defense against multiple forms of headlocks
Defense against multiple forms of “bear hugs” (front and rear)
Defense against various gun threats (front, side and rear)
Defense against long weapon threats (e.g., stick, pipe, bat, machete etc…)
Defense against multiple forms of knife threats
Defense against single and multiple attackers
Remember, we want and will teach you everything you need to help protect yourself and your loved ones but in the end its really up to you. You get out of it only what you put into it.
