    Krav Maga Level 1

    Amazing!! We had a sub, Victoria, and she was AMAZING. Quite a few people but it kept the energy alive and still plenty of room on the mat. This was my first time and while I didn't know how to do kicks and throw punches but did learn a few other cool self defense tricks. Will be back again

    PT6

    Our class had fewer people so we only had 5 stations with 2 people at each station. Normally it seems to be 6 stations. Each station was 6 minutes long and Victoria did a great job in showing us the moves and coming around to correct everyone. Cardio was light but there were still some. Our class really focused on upper body but other instructors may be different. This is definitely for strengthening and I feel sore today!

    Alessandra was very supportive of me as it was my first time there although it was not my first time kickboxing, many of the moves were different.

    Krav Maga - Upper East Side

    It was a great class but you need to think about how serious you are about leaning Krav Maga before you go. The instructor Mark was super nice and great at inspiring people. The class was relatively small so you could get enough attention. However it is more like a trail on ClassPass. If you are like me who likes to do various workout every month, Krav Maga might not be a good one to add to your routine. The class is not really for beginners, so in order to keep up with the rest you kind of have to sign up for the membership. I read the negative reviews about the promoters before I went, but luckily the one calling me was very polite. But if you only go once or twice a month using classpass, you will not get enough trainings. But try it out, you might be intrigued and sign up for the membership. Who knows :)
