Krav Maga is working with "A Home Away from Homeless"

We have partnered with ‘A Home Away from Homelessness,’ a local non-profit organization, as part of our dedication to give back to the community

Krav Maga San Francisco, a local fitness venue to get fit, have fun and learn self defense, is always searching for ways to give back to the local community. Most recently, Krav Maga San Francisco has been providing an eight-week program that teaches homeless and formerly homeless middle school children from “A Home Away from Homelessness” self-defense techniques. In the process, the program will help them get fit and build their confidence.

“I am surprised at the amount of stress I was holding in,” one of the children, Cindy, said.

Gabby said, “It leaves me feeling calm.”

Gail Foland, owner of Krav Maga San Francisco, is a fourth-generation native of San Francisco and together with her husband, and Krav Maga trainer, Barny, the training facility makes it a point to provide free self-defense for non-profits throughout the community.

“We have partnered with ‘A Home Away from Homelessness,’ a local non-profit organization, as part of our dedication to give back to the community,” Gail Foland, owner of Krav Maga San Francisco, said.

“A Home Away from Homelessness” gives children the opportunity to experience having safe and supportive spaces that respect and foster their strengths and abilities. The organization aims to build confidence, skills and community through educational, social and recreational activities. It will be hosting its 18th Anniversary Gala on May 4 at the War Memorial Green Room.
