9 Self Defense Classes You Need to Take
1. Krav Maga Practical Self Defense
An Israeli martial art, Krav Maga is about staying alive in a dirty street fight. Unlike the beauty of classic Tae Kwon Do or Karate, this style of fighting is fast and ugly. But the techniques are invaluable if you find yourself fighting for your life.
In most martial arts you respond to an attack with a defensive block, then retaliate with an attack of your own. But that’s all too slow for street fighting. Krav Maga will train you to attack and defend in a single movement, so you can respond faster than your attacker.
