My name is Hank and I have practiced Krav Maga off and on for the last few years.
I have attended three different studios and by far, Krav Maga experts in Boise was the best.
I worked Security in a hospital, and frequently encountered many physical altercations.
Without August’s training, I would not have been able to safely handle those situations which ranged from a grumpy grandma who forgot where she was, to the fit male who decided to take PCP for the first time.
August’s classes cover a wide range of defense techniques including groundwork, striking and weapon disarmament. The majority of violent altercations ended up on the ground. The ground is a dangerous place to find yourself.
On my last day of work at the hospital, a confused and depressed patient attempted to stab himself with a pen. When I went to grab it, he tried to stab me instead. I used a knife disarm technique and quickly took the pen away.
Without the proper training, I would not have been able to safely handle the situation without injury to myself or the patient. Even though it was just a pen, anything can be used as a weapon when in the hands of a trained or determined individual.
I highly advocate for, and recommend every first responder take Krav Maga with KME, because this is an uncertain world we live in.
