Krav Maga Northern Beaches
They teach a modern self-defense system which has originated in Israel and is now one of the most widely used disciplines for its swift moves to immediately subdue any aggressor.
Krav Maga will teach you how to defend yourself against an attacker. No matter where you live, attacks can happen out of nowhere, putting you in a situation where you are at risk. Krav Maga prepares you to defend yourself against an attacker who doesn’t play by the rules. You’ll be taught specialised techniques that utilise striking and attacking vulnerable points. Students learn how to use their own bodies as well as common objects as weapons to ensure their personal safety.
Real-Life Training Scenarios
Unlike other martial arts and self-defence training, Krav Maga prepares you for the real world – a place where there is rarely a fair fight.
More often than not, when in a real confrontation you will face multiple attackers, armed attackers, or bigger and stronger assailants. From the very beginning of your Krav Maga training, you will learn how to defend and deal with attacks when you are highly disadvantaged. It is this training that helps you build your strength and your agility while also sending your fitness and confidence through the roof.
Simplicity Is Key
In the unfortunate event of an attack, your body releases a shot of adrenalin. This causes side effects such as impaired judgment, tunnel vision, and increased heart rate. In this heightened state, it is very hard to remember 20 complex moves from your last self-defence or martial art lesson! That is where Krav Maga differs from other techniques – it is built upon a few simple techniques that can be instinctively applied in a wide range of common situations. This will help you fend off would-be attackers as soon as the need arises.

They are now providing online classes to make sure that you stay fit and train effectively at the comfort and safety of your home.

From Monday 6th April, there were a number of government-mandated changes to the way childcare services operate.
The good news for families is that, from Monday 6 April, they are entitled to free childcare for the next few months. Some childcare centres have decided not to take new enrolments.
As a brand-new service at Frenchs Forest, MindChamps Early Learning is able to offer positions to new families wanting to enrol.
MindChamps have spent over 20 years developing – and teaching – effective strategies for parents and educators. They are based on their Champion Mindset philosophy – which includes the principle of turning ‘setbacks into setups’.
During this time children are the most important factor in the equation, and their educators do everything they can to ensure that this critical period in their development is catered for in an optimal manner.
