First TIME AT SGS KRAV MAGA?
It can be hard to walk into a new place for the first time. We’ve all been there. But the first step of any journey is the most difficult, but it’s that first step that can change your life for the better.
We are an invitation-based gym that prides itself on our strong sense of community. We come from all backgrounds and different ages. You can expect to train with people, not with egos.
Here’s what you can expect and what you need to bring.
Come in about 10-15 minutes earlier and sign in at the front desk.
Wear whatever you are OK to sweat in and bring covered shoes that you don’t wear outside. Since we train on mats, we want to keep them as clean as possible. If you don’t have a pair of training shoes, that’s fine, just give your regular trainers a once-over either at the gym or before.
There are bathrooms and a change room at the back of gym if you need it.
Wait for class to begin. There is a waiting area for students and someone is sure to strike up a conversation with you if you don’t strike one up first.
We are a friendly bunch.
Join the line when the instructor calls everyone in.
Hands in front, and say ‘Kida’ – this is how we greet one another at the beginning of every session.
Our classes are structured. There will be a series of warm-up exercises, stretching, and games designed specifically to introduce or teach an aspect of the technique of the day.
Every training session is different.
Class could cover striking fundamentals, knife attacks or gun threat defenses, or escapes from wrist grabs or choke releases from the ground. While it’s diverse, all techniques are relevant to real-life self-defense.
There will be a summary drill at the end of the class. A certain element of stress (physical, mental or both) is placed on you as you execute techniques. Just do your best. Every single person you train with – from expert to intermediate – once walked into their first class and first summary drill!
