New Problems Call for New Solutions

Krav Maga is, at its core, a problem solving system. Here at FDKM, we've taken that principle to heart and created an unique approach to teaching the fundamentals of Krav Maga and self-defense.

Our Hybrid Introduction to Krav Maga Course uses a blended learning model giving students a mixture of online and in-person instruction and the flexibility of self-paced learning.

How It Works

FDKM's Hybrid Introduction to Krav Maga Course includes both online and classroom (virtual or in-person) instruction. We've taken our popular Introduction to Krav Maga course, where we teach you the fundamental techniques and tactics of the system, and supplemented it with additional material custom designed for an online learning environment.


Once you have registered for the course, you will receive:

  • Access to the first course in the FDKM Academy - Principles of Krav Maga
  • Access to the first set of technique videos
  • A personal, online introductory lesson with our Head Instructor, Nick Masi, where together you will set your goals for the course and develop your roadmap for achieving them.


You will continue to gain access to additional online components, such as presentations on self-defense concepts and video resources. As you progress through the material, you will continue weekly, online lessons/check-ins with Nick. There will also be opportunities to join online training classes (as well as classroom training when we are given the OK to be open).

´╗┐PHASE 3

Once you have completed the Hybrid Introduction Course material, there are a number of ways to continuing your training at FDKM and continue developing the skills you learned. We will offer both online and classroom (when allowed) training opportunities in both individual/private, semi-private, and group format. We will also continue to develop new online resources, that will both support and supplement your Krav Maga and self-defense skills.
