Krav Maga and Women’s Self Defense Seminars at Smash Gyms

Smash Gym's staff runs one of the most experienced and innovative self-defense programs in the Bay Area. One of the only self-defense programs in California that uses fully padded mock assailant instructors. This equipment allows the instructors to teach self-defense to students in an safe but realistic adrenalized state which helps them learn how to fight through the "freeze response" that naturally happens when attacked. This also allows the participants to practice real life application of the techniques with 100% full force for a fun, unique and possibly life-saving experience!

Topics often include..

-Full Force Self Defense in realistic scenarios
-Awareness
-Prevention
-Risk reduction
-Risk avoidance; and
-Self-realization of your own physical power

The Smash Gyms Self-Defense program is ran by  some of the most experienced and professional martial arts instructors in the Bay Area. Expert professionals teach every class.

If you want to truly learn a subject you need to see an authority on the matter. If you want to learn how to throw kicks and punches at the highest level you need to find a kickboxing coach. Nothing makes a person ready, aware, ferocious, in shape like taking our self-defense classes. If you want to protect yourself, control and then submit an attacker in a one on one fight you should take BJJ classes. If you want to learn to knife fight then find an expert! None of these fighting styles is an expert in every situation. Every one of them is an expert in many situations though.

 

All women that join our Women's Self-Defense Program also get FREE access to our Women's Only Brazilian Jiu-jitsu classes!

WHY CHOOSE SMASH GYMS AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM AND CAMPS?

Conveniently located on the border of Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, Smash Gyms has amazing kids martial arts and fitness programs. The Kids After School Center was developed at the request of parents wanting an alternative to the typical after care environment. The objective of the After School Martial Arts Program is to create a fun and safe experience every afternoon after school that encourages children to build good relationships, learn martial arts, and demonstrate responsibility by completing their homework assignments.

The children are continuously supervised with adult counselors who provide activity supervision, and professional instructors who teach the martial arts classes. All on-site activities are conducted indoors and children are divided into smaller groups at the appropriate times. The daily routine is punctual and organized. Parents can concentrate on their job with the peace of mind that their children are having fun after school, making good use of their time, and staying healthy from the exercise.

Ultimately, the children will become Blackbelt Leaders and role models. The martial arts curriculum is comprehensive. If your child is attending an after care program now, then usually enrolling in our After School Center is more affordable. Instead of paying tuition for after care, at another location, and then paying tuition again for evening martial arts classes, you can have your after school needs and martial arts lessons combined together. Then, evenings can be saved for quality family time and eliminate the stress of having to manage dinner, homework, evening activities, and bed time schedules.

Less than 5 minutes from Rivermark Plaza in Santa Clara! Major cross streets are Lawrence and Tasman in Sunnyvale. Call us for more information at 408-744-6334.
