Krav Maga

Hi All

I do Crossfit inconjunction with Krav Maga.

Is there anyone else that does Krav Maga and Crossfit?

Re: Krav Maga

I did Krav Maga for a while, then they arrested me for negligent manslaughter with a deadly weapon because I had killed all of my training partners...

Re: Krav Maga

Yes. I do both.
Actually I came from Krav Maga to CrossFit

Some of my clients asked me what they could do for specific Krav Maga Fitness. As I asked inside a closed Facebook group for Krav Maga Instructors, one guy from the IDF told me about CrossFit....
That´s when it all started.....

Re: Krav Maga

I take a Krav class at least 2x per week in conjunction with a regular CrossFit routine. This means, in essence, that two days per week I'm doing two conditioning sessions in a day. At 44, I've found that this kind of volume requires a little creativity with CrossFit programing since a typical 1 hour Krav class involves a lot of conditioning and, particularly, extra stress to the shoulders and hip flexors on account of all the drills that include hand strikes and kicking.

You also want to make sure to take care of your hands (wear wraps and gloves) and pay special attention when learning proper technique with open hand strikes and punching. Sprained fingers/thumbs/wrists take a long time to heal and can really sideline your CrossFit training since any "sprain pains" in the fingers/thumbs/wrist will impact your hook grip, front rack position, etc.

I know Skip Chase, the former owner of Mount Baker CrossFit in Burlington, WA used to also offer Krav Maga classes at his box. I think he's still on this message board.

Re: Krav Maga

We've been teaching Krav Maga and CrossFit for years at our locations and it's a great fit to diversify your offering. Over the last year we've been traveling to other CF gyms who are interested in hosting workshops for their members in order to see if Krav is a good fit for their community. Feel free to email me if you'd like more info. We love meeting new box owners and making our community safer and healthier!

I am a Krav Maga Global Instructor and I do CrossFit, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Praying Mantis Kung Fu. I enjoy everything that each of those bring to the table and it ALL has improved my health and fitness. Plus, all of the above are just fun!

Re: Krav Maga

We actually do open classes once a week Krav Maga + Crossfit for a while now trying to integrate both into one training routine. See the group on fb with lots of photos
