Ask a Trainer #3 with Nathan Cross

Ask an expert your Krav Maga questions

Nathan Cross is a Level 1 Instructor who heads our North Palmerston, New Zealand school. Nathan is very passionate about helping his community, to learn to be safe and protect themselves should the need arise. This week, Nathan answers #AskaTrainer 3

Jakub asks: What would you suggest students can do to improve their Krav Maga? Besides regular classes - are there other things one can do outside / in their own time to get better or should be conscious of?

Nathan answers: A great thing about Krav Maga is that it is not just a fighting style. As a system that focuses on self defence you do not need to practice sparring or fighting every day to be enhancing your Krav Maga skills and to increase your capability to defend yourself. When you walk down

You Think You Don’t Need Self Defence? Think Again!

In a perfect world we would not be having this conversation. In a perfect world people would not have to defend themselves against an attack, especially women. In a perfect world women should not have to worry about assault, sexual harassment or rape.

Unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world. You know it, you see it everyday in the news and even if we try to ignore it or to be optimistic and to think it will never happen to you, the reality is, you can’t be sure of it.

In a culture of domestic violence, assault and rape, self-defence for women should be a priority.

 Yes, it outrages you and us too, that women should be taught how to defend themselves, when in fact the root of the problem is the abuser, the attacker, the rapist. They are the ones that should be taught not to do all those things.

 But until that perfect world comes you can take control and you can arm yourself with the ability to fight back and protect yourself and the ones you love.

Secondly, are there training options for students who want to gain skills and knowledge within a specific area of interest? (For example getting better at weapon defence, ground fighting, etc).

Daniela: When you begin self-defence training, I always start with context. I explain:
