Krav Maga in New Orleans?

I am looking for a gym that teaches Krav Maga in the Greater New Orleans area. I know about the one in Hammond, but that is an hour long drive from where I live.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Krav Maga in New Orleans?

I don't think anyone is doing Krav Maga in New Orleans. There is a Jiu Jitsu place in Metairie, though:

A Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
3848 Veterans Memorial Blvd
Metairie, LA 70002-5671
Phone: (504) 454-7923

I know nothing about the gym and haven't lived in New Orleans for eight years, but you usually can't go wrong with BJJ. There was a truly great boxing gym in Mid City that turned out some good fighters, but I believe they closed after Katrina. Boxing + BJJ= fun and effective.

Are there many people doing Crossfit in New Orleans?

That's awesome that Crossfit will finally make it's way to Louisiana. Too bad you aren't doing it closer to the Metairie area.

I'm not sure if there are a lot of Xfitters in the greater New Orleans area. I have run into a couple at the gym I go to. They are usally easy to spot.

I used to do some boxing before the Hurricane, but the gym I was at got washed away.

Re: Krav Maga in New Orleans?

There are a lot of people getting into around here. I have been training people at the local globo until my place is up and running. I think it is going to take off like wild fire judging by the feedback I've been getting.Where are you training at in town? By the way, the drive from Metairie isn't that bad

Right now I'm going to Anytime Fitness on Vets in Metairie. I like it because it is rarely busy. I do get some strange looks from the guys on the smith machines, but it's all good.

Oh, and Slidell is far enough. You need to open a gym in Metairie.

Re: Krav Maga in New Orleans?

Dont know about Krav but I was in NO for the holidays and went to a bjj open mat at NOLABJJ (www.nolabjj.com)

Great group - safe, intense, skilled, friendly and the place its in has a good selection of stuff that works for xfit workouts.

They teach Muay Thai and street oriented self defense as well but I did not take any of those classes.

Good luck.
