Self defense is frequently taught in variety of levels; from choreographed martial arts techniques designed to improve performance, to one of the latest catch-phrase niche markets known as reality based -a primarily mat based dojo environment incorporating multiple styles of martial arts, sometimes Krav Maga.
What makes Shaan Saar Krav Maga so different is not only our stress tested approach to Scenario Based Training but the multi-faceted, evidence based approach to understanding and response to violence and violence prevention education. We combine intensive concept training which incorporates the most biomechanically effective martial arts self defense and military survival concepts with carefully crafted mock-ups, designed to learn, practice, test and overcome. Students are offered a variety of lecture based education elements fro conflict management, de-escalation, survival negotiation; as well as education for use of force, reporting and more! Self defense doesn't just begin when one has been attacked and it certainly doesn't end there as well; we explore a variety of topics through our intersectional self-defense™ system.
To ensure every student is actually able to use what they learn efficiently we layer in Resilience Training. Our methods help to create the necessary mindset for not only protecting oneself but to move past our own individual hypo and hyper-arousal states which can inhibit the ability to rise to the level of our training.
Students learn to transcend fear, move quickly and efficiently with skill in order to protect themselves and loved ones with one of the most important and practical life skills a person could possess. We work tirelessly to ensure content is relevant to our ever changing world and develop course formats and learning options that make learning viable for even the busiest professional.
