New York, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
The Krav Maga Institute, one of the area’s largest and most reputable martial arts schools, offers Israeli self-defense classes to law enforcement, security professionals and ordinary civilians (adults and children) all over New York City, as well as San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Oakland in California. Since its establishment in 1997, Church Street Boxing Gym has been the home to countless professional and amateur fighters. It’s coaching staff is stacked with highly qualified trainers and experienced fighters, some of whom still actively compete. The intense focus on learning and hard work is matched only by the affection and respect coaches and members share in- and outside the ring.
The partnership between the two New York City stalwarts aims to make boxing and Krav Maga more accessible to regular New Yorkers. Anyone can now attain their fitness goals and learn from the best boxing and Krav Maga trainers that the city has to offer. The program equips New Yorkers with the tools they need to get fit, gain confidence and learn important new skills.
"Our mission is to teach effective, modern, reality-based self-defense (authentic Krav Maga) in a supportive and community-based environment while also supporting the fitness goals of our members and improving the quality of their lives," said Patrick Lockton, the founder and owner of Krav Maga Institute. Jenaro Diaz, head coach and owner of Church Street Boxing Gym holds a similar view, “The Krav Maga Institute shares our philosophy and commitment to excellence. Members can expect to learn authentic, effective fight strategy, with the added benefit of getting in the best shape of their lives.”
With this partnership, Diaz and Lockton expect to provide a comprehensive, “one stop shop” that will accommodate anyone willing to learn.
