Krav Maga hits Columbus!

I'd been looking for a krav maga center for months, I asked around with various martial arts practitioners and even called the columbus jewish community center; nada. Then I go to visit the local crossfit affiliate and BAM there it is in the same friggin complex! That's what I get for crossfitting in my barn!

Anyhow I joined today for 12 months after a kick a$$ introductory class. It was exactly what I'd been looking for. Functional, practical, and intense. I have xfit to thank for the ability to actually go all out while keeping up with the class and impressing the instructors with my "hip recruitment," lol. I was extremely impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and dedication to helping the newbie (me).

They offer additional programs in bjj, boxing, mma, weapons defense, taikwondo, and something called Crazyfit (which sounds like some incarnation of Crossfit). Membership is all inclusive, so whatever they offer now or in the future is included at no extra cost! They even have a small workout room with still rings and some other toys that's available for use when there's not a class going on in there. No weights (that I saw) though. :(

While you're there stop by the cf affiliate just around the other side of the building. [url]http://www.roguefitness.com/[/url] (wfs)
Basically put together they are a one stop shop for becoming a total bada$$. :pepper:

If you ever need a place on the West side of town, there has been a Krav Maga gym in Dublin for at least a few years: [url]http://www.coretactix.com/[/url]

I had seen that on the net previously, but it's a bit of a hike for me. Looks like a sweet training center though!

Tim,

Glad you like Ohio Krav Maga. I'm an instructor there as well as a member at Rogue Fitness. I teach the crazyfit class which is pretty much crossfit but I'll throw in some combatives(kicks, punches, knife defenses) in between doing burpees, pull ups, and sprints and yes, we have weights. I'll get them out if the class is small since we only have 1 bar at this time. :)

CoreTactix is a nice place, I had my week long Phase A krav maga instructor training there. Their instructors are top notch as well, Mark (owner of Ohio Krav Maga) trained most of them. ;)

I'm sure I've met you but with all the new people coming in, it's hard to keep everyone straight. I will be there tonight doing BJJ (thursday the 27th) but will be my last day until the 14th..VACATION TIME :D

John

I look forward to seeing you then!

Had my 2nd class last night and will be on a weekly routine now that the holidays are over. All is going swimmingly!
