Premier Martial Arts incorporates a combination of techniques found in four effective disciplines: Krav Maga, Kickboxing, Submission Grappling and Kali which provide students with a realistic personal protection and fitness system for a modern world.
Israeli Krav Maga – Real World Self Protection
Krav Maga is a generic Hebrew word meaning “contact fighting.” The word, maga, means “contact” and the word, krav, means “battle” or “fight”. In Krav Maga, there are no rules. Krav Maga is a self defense and fighting system, not a sport. All the techniques focus on strategies and effectiveness in real-life conditions and situations.
The attacks and defenses in Krav Maga training are designed generally for close quarter, possibly life threatening situations. The goal of training is to neutralize attacks, counter attack for self protection purposes and escape rapidly and safely as possible. Though self protection is the main goal of Krav Maga, the techniques, conditioning and drills make Krav Maga the ideal training for self defense, fighting, or fitness.
Knowing that self protection and fighting are totally different situations, our Kickboxing curriculum teaches our students techniques used in all ranges of realistic stand up fighting while getting them in the best shape of their lives. Premier’s kickboxing curriculum incorporates the punching techniques of western boxing with the kicking, kneeing, and elbow strikes of muay thai kickboxing. This combination makes for dynamic fitness training while training in the world’s best striking system.
Submission Grappling teaches our students how to defend themselves in the event that they are “taken to the ground” in an altercation. Through learning throws, joint locks, and submission holds students will be better able to defend themselves while standing up in close range or in the event that they are on the ground.
In modern world self protection, the need for weapon defense and weapons training is a reality. Whether confronted with an attacker wielding a knife, stick or teaching our student how to properly defend themselves with these weapons, the art of Kali gives the Premier Martial Arts student the knowledge needed to survive.
By combining these realistic and effective systems of the martial arts a student will be better able to defend themselves in any situation they may conceivably find themselves. Where most systems of martial arts focus mainly on one area of technique, our mixed martial arts approach allows us to train a well rounded student of self protection.
