"Krav Maga is not a self-defense system, it’s a survival system. The goal is not to defend against an attack, it's to survive it. Whether one attacker or multiple attackers, whether they have a bat, knife or gun; Krav Maga teaches you to survive the attack by being more violent and more aggressive than your attacker so you can protect yourself and get out. It sounds harsh and violent because it is. It has to be or you won't survive. It wasn't created to be pretty. It was created to inflict an extensive amount of damage in the shortest amount of time so one can escape… so one can survive." -DC Pacheco, Chief Instructor
