KRAV MAGA BODYGUARD – 14/08/2015

One of the specialities of Krav Maga is our ability to apply the self-defense techniques within an operational setting like VIP Protection. Once students have learned how to effectively defend themselves, they move on to more advanced techniques and apply their knowledge in the context of third party protection. This is also one of the main differences with traditional martial arts and something that really sets Krav Maga apart from any other self-defense system.

CORE STRENGTH – 13/08/2015

Krav Maga core exercises are an integral part of our training program. The main reason for this is the movement requirements of our self-defense techniques and their operational application. Isolation exercises and even compound exercises employ specific muscles while core drills put the entire body under pressure and fire all muscles together.

IMPROVING PUSH UPS – 12/08/2015

The push up is the single greatest exercise for conditioning in Krav Maga. All our students know the importance of this exercise and the necessity of constantly keeping up a high push up count. Furthermore, push ups work on the mental aspects of an individual and allows the student to build a stronger mindset. Congratulations to Chris with a whopping 358 push ups!

KRAV MAGA FITNESS – 11/08/2015

It is crucial to employ specific exercise training (S.E.T) when conditioning students for Krav Maga. Unlike martial arts, our self-defense system has specific requirements that need to be worked on so that participants are able to maximize their performance. From our warm up drills to our fitness routines, all exercises at Krav Maga Elite are designed to exponentially improve your capabilities.

NEW “SHADOWBALL” TRAINING – 10/08/2015

Krav Maga Elite had the opportunity to try out an amazing new training tool called the “Shadowball”! This amazing piece of equipment allows participants to build core strength and improve cardiovascular capabilities all while testing their reaction time, hand speed, rhythm, timing, hand-eye coordination and reflexive reactions. This type of training is extremely beneficial to anyone serious about building their reflexive response for Krav Maga, improving their martial arts training or getting an intense workout!

 

For those who practice Krav Maga or have used it in a professional setting, you will appreciate the random and reflexive approach the Shadowball provides in regards to technical conditioning. The Shadowball uses R.T.H.M, otherwise know as “Random Target Hyper-kinetic Motion” to generate a vast array of unpredictable targets, helping it induce a rare form of realism that is missing in traditional workouts. While the Shadowball might have been designed for martial arts and self-defense training, anyone can use this modern tool and turn it into a great cardiovascular workout that can be done anywhere. We challenge you to try it out and keep up with the unpredictable bouncing patterns and the fast pace the Shadowball brings to your fitness workout.

 

Moreover, another great feature of this product is it’s portability and ease of transportation. Simply put it in your backpack and go anywhere to practice! The Shadowball itself is not heavy and the risk of injury is almost inexistent. There is no installation required and you can train either indoors or outdoors. The product was developed by Cedric Salcedo from Avantgarde Sport Inc. using the latest technologies in the field of physical conditioning with the goal of maximizing fitness parameters.

 

To see our students using the Shadowball, go on our Facebook page @ Krav Maga West Island

KRAV MAGA PUSH UPS – 09/08/2015

The uniqueness of Krav Maga requires the development and implementation of counterattack-specific exercises. This particular drill tests wrist and finger strength according to one’s own bodyweight. If an individual cannot perform this exercise at the slow speed of a push up, then this type of counterattack is not cleared for use in a self-defense setting. Moreover, all students should be tested on hard surfaces such as concrete or hardwood floors in order to better simulate hard impact strikes. It is crucial for everyone to know their capabilities and for them to keep testing via these types of performance-based exercises.
