[s123u_spoiler title=”What are Krav Maga Capsules & explain your grading system?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Crime is very vast. A rigid syllabus might not be suited for many people who might be looking for a particular potential crime situation. So, we divide vast crimes situations in smaller parts of capsules focused on a particular crime scenario like – Anti-Assault Capsule, Anti-Kidnapping Capsule, Anti-Rape Capsule, Family Protection Capsule, etc.

Each capsule has a time-line under which you must finish your capsule along with your capsule exam.

  • Rs 3800 fees structure will give you 2 hours each Sat & Sun for 4 weekends (1 month) of time-line. Exams after 8 weeks or two months of training.

  • Rs 7800 fees structure will give you 2 hours each Sat & Sun for 5 weekends (1 month) of time-line. Exams after 5 weeks or every month of training.

  • Rs 7800 per capsule in diploma fees structure will give you around 7 hours of training each day. Multiple capsules diploma will have 7 hours per day into 3-5 days or more days in time-line.

The first introductory capsule for all is Anti-Assault Capsule. After that capsule for example, a teen, directly can switch to Anti-Kidnap Capsule, whereas a family man can choose Family Protection Capsule skipping other capsules. These capsules can also be further customised into more specific scenarios.

Once you pass the first capsule, you are awarded a grade – Warrior Level 1. After the first basic Anti-Assault capsule, you can choose to inter-change your capsules with other basic levels capsules which are based on different crime scenarios or could be a more advance version of your older capsule.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Why notebook, pen & theory in a self defence class?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Krav Maga has a lot of tactics dealing with various crime situations. Maybe hundred & thousands of them. Why? The vastness of crime not only depends the individualistic aspects of each (good or bad) person but also the various angles, combinations & ambiance based scenario, weapons, number of predators, emotional stimulations, etc., they all are in. It’s impossible to learn every tactic in a life time. On top of that crime modus operandi as well as self-defence, which is based on crime usually become obsolete after few months as usually there is some bright criminal mind which changes the whole game plan.

So a more scientific way is to understand and learn the pattern behind the tactics of either the crime or the self-defence. A new recruit will of course be focused on the technical aspects of each tactic he/she is learning. But once you approach advance capsules, your are able to identify the pattern.

Your notebook & pen are a very important old-school tool to help you itch your tactical knowledge every-time you write down. Plus since under the tiredness & stress of the 1-hour cardio workout prior to Krav Maga class, most of the time the human mind only grasp 1/4 of the knowledge that Guru-ji Franklin Joseph shares in his combat science and other elements theory classes. In studio classes, we get around 10 minutes every class, whereas it’s covered extensively more in on-line classes. So repeatedly noting down the points, it will help you gather the pieces of information you acquire more constructively in the end.

[s123u_spoiler title=”I am a girl/boy teen, middle age or old man/woman, can I join Krav Maga?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Definitely, anyone can join Krav Maga self-defence training. Being young or old has little to no effect on your training. Naturally, based on your age, we will design the training module. Krav Maga self-defence tactics are NOT based on size, strength or fitness of the person.

Krav Maga uses human instincts (which every one of you at present have) & combat science to power its tactics. However, the same way, your body will not like a few days of you starting any intense sports activity suddenly, you need to allow 1 to 2 weeks for your body to adjust to Krav Maga way of training.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Do I need big size, strength or perfect fitness to learn Krav Maga?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

The size or your body, muscles or lack of it, strength & fitness or lack of it, DOES NOT matter in a crime situation. NO criminal judges you by the six packs or push-ups & then decide to assault him/her. If you have bigger muscles or look strong, you can be brought down by a 3-inch knife or multiple attackers.

Therefore, even if you don’t maintain or have any fitness or size, strength, you can still learn Krav Maga self-defence. However, we include strength training & pain conditioning drills adapted from old school Karate or Muay Thai a few times in your training. See, we take the best of martial arts in our training too.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Do kids or women have special classes?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Yes, they can opt for special on-line classes especially in covering the psychological aspects of combat science & girl/women self-defence. However, tactically speaking, they must physically train with adults or men in a studio training as in reality most of the time, they will have to encounter adults in a crime situation. In a crime situation, kids or women might be intimidated by the size or strength or even the aggression or bad language of the undesirable person.

Along with that elements like fear, chaos, panic, pain, failure, personal insecurity, etc. also create havoc to his/her ability to defend herself successfully. Being exposed to these elements in a secure environment where every negative aspect is explained & converted into a positive learning holistic approach is a must for a realistic approach to kids or woman self-defence.

Krav Maga combat class is not a play ground, and the kids / teen / adults must maintain & observe safety protocols at all times. Ask Specialist Guru-ji Franklin Joseph to share some video of interviews from girls that had trained in his class along with re-explaining the risk factors in the introductory orientation.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Do I need to join gym to get strength or get thin or learn martial arts first to join Krav Maga?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

No, you do not need to join any weight training strength programs in a gym or get thin if you are over-weight or learn any martial arts before Krav Maga.

In fact, Krav Maga is designed for normal people that have no experience in any fighting skills. However, you can also go to gym for either strength training or weight reduction along with your Krav Maga training.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Do you teach Martial Arts along with Krav Maga?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

No, our specialist Guru-ji Franklin Joseph only teaches Krav Maga self-defence. According to him, Krav Maga self-defence has a radically different mindset, methodology of training, drills & tactics than martial arts. To be blunt, every rule violated in martial arts is what Krav Maga properly instructs you to learn. Where the limitation or rigidity of martial arts ends, Krav Maga expands from that pivotal point. Nobody can restrict you from learning both.

Krav Maga speciality is to build the instinctive response for a critical crisis emergency or threat. Since, crime first assaults is within 1 to 3 precious seconds, getting confused with Krav Maga tactics or martial arts rules & style might be fatal.

A Krav Maga uniform T-shirt is compulsory for the qualifying exam that every one has to give at the end of the capsule. T-shirt uniform is also compulsory for senior members after you reach Warrior level 1. Any dark color jogging trousers or gym shorts should be worn at the bottom. Running shoes must be included inside your bag and worn inside the studio to prevent the training area or studio getting dirty from outside dirt & mud.

Every one must include 1 to 2 litres of normal water bottle along with a small towel is important to carry. Purchase a bigger bag to support you carry your protection gears.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Why Krav Maga does not have daily practice? Why it’s costlier than martial arts?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Krav Maga was created by the Israeli military to support soldiers learn self-defence in hours before a mission. All the tactics of Krav Maga are based on human instincts thus more than 50% of the tactics, the body & mind is at present used to. Few coordination changes are made in Krav Maga to assist a faster learning process which will take not more than 1 to 3 days to get adapted if practiced for few hours. Nobody enjoys years to invest in learning something that can be done in hours.

More-ever, the time-line of crime first assault is 1 to 3 seconds. We cannot create a complicated stunt that can be executed in less than 3 seconds. These simple instinctive tactics represent a much more realistic approach for real crime Krav Maga self-defence. Remember your first bicycle ride practice. Did it last days or years? And now do you need to relearn if you ride another bicycle?

Martial art movements are mostly designed on unnatural movements thus requiring daily practice. And since it will take months to perfect one un-natural movement, the fee structure is very less to sustain the client for years.

At Krav Maga self defence anyone can learn up to four tactics within a capsule in a day with 5-6 hours of practice. So years of training is reduced to hours or days. Hence, the price is concentrated directly in proportion to the time-line saved and vast knowledge acquired in shorter span of time.

[s123u_spoiler title=”I would like to invest long time to perfect Krav Maga, is that possible?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Sports, martial arts, etc. need perfection in its players. So they invest years. A cricketer like Sachin cannot execute a perfect straight drive unless he invests years in practising that shot. So whenever he will get a perfect ball which is appropriate for his straight drive, his cricket instincts will take over & deliver the perfect shot. Sadly, in a crime situation, there is no guarantee that they will attack the way he/she has learned in the class! Therefore, all major crime will always be unpredictable unscripted sudden violent assault.

In the initial stages of learning, the Krav Maga practitioner only learns the coordination behind the instinctive tactics. Here some practice of few days are required. However after few months of different capsules or different levels of tactics, he/she starts to discover the pattern behind the creation of every new tactic they have learnt. And since the principle behind each tactic are nearly the same, with slight manipulation, the pattern allows the practitioner to be able to respond to an unpredictable unscripted sudden assault within the time-line of 1 to 3 seconds of the primary assault.

Here in realistic scenario perfection can never be achieved since being human, our instincts are never perfect. But if we are capable to execute at least 90% of what we have learned within few hours/days of practice within the 1 to 3 second initial time-line of the sudden assault, we have done a successful Krav Maga self-defence.

Another issue is the unlimited vast scope of possible attack scenarios. Even if one knife attack scenario is given to five criminals or bad elements, they will do it from five different angles or sequence or techniques. Multiple it with billions of people because we know even good people can do bad things in a bad situation. So we would need a hundred of years to learn every possible combination of ONE assault done by anybody in the world. So, its best to invest the right amount of time in learning the principle behind the tactics & then hopefully create a good one when the time you need it the most. Quality of the time matters in Krav Maga rather than quantity of time.

Will we get injured if we fight in a real crime? Most likely…. as nothing is perfect in real life – neither the attack nor the defence. That why our first advise to any fight, first defuse it & go home. But if we do the even 50% of the self defence, within the first 1 to 3 seconds, our chance of survival are increased more than even 1% against certain death, it still very very effective self-defence. Best way to understand this is to visit our centre, and talk to present members who will attest to this truely remarkable new & scientific methodology of training. Oh by the way, Israeli military & many other special elite units of police & other agencies use Krav Maga & this very concept of training.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Is Krav Maga better than Karate/Kung-fu or Mixed Martial Arts?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Krav Maga is designed for crime which cheats. Martial Arts is a designed to be ethical, rigid in its style, rules, regulations, requires years of training, has officials referees for tournaments, medals, belts, etc. When two martial artists are in combat, they are only testing skill set, and if a artist get hurt, the bout the stopped by the refree.

Criminals aim is to win the combat by cheating as fast as possible using any dirty unethical methods like weapons or multiple attackers, etc. Except of similarity in punch & kick, Krav Maga & Martial Arts are worlds apart in methodology of training, mindset, subject-line and elements utilized along for tactical executions.

Krav Maga teaches you dirty tactics in an insufficient amount of time to counter the cheat abilities of a criminal. If you absolutely have to compare, in a karate or MMA fight tournament, Krav Maga will lose in seconds as it’s cannot follow rules of that art-form. However, if there are no rules of a street fight, well… Krav Maga is in its most appropriate elements of training & has many tactical advantage to succeed.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Is Krav Maga training designed for urban modern street crime?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Promptly let’s start with a few realistic facts of crime – The first fierce assault will typically happen in 1-3 critical seconds. Second, it will always be unpredictable, unethical, totally dependent on situational ambiance & will NOT show any mercy even if you voluntarily surrender. A classic example – Imagine, driving with your family for dinner, you are unpredictably captured in a terror situation of an active shooter invading your car, forcibly holding your mother hostage at the back seat while shooting indiscriminately innocent people or even your or your loved one with a semi-automatic assault rifle.

Even if you realistically are in perfect fitness, maintaining awesome size & strength advantage, an expert in any traditional martial art, your syllabus will rarely deal with an emotional trauma of a mother being held hostage, psychological trauma to nervously watching a bleeding loved one or a physical trauma of your arm or neck being stabbed or shot by a high power rifle designed to immobilise you & an ambiance based situational scenario of being stuck & confined inside a car where no kicks or punches or stunts can be executed that you typically learned for years inside an open space dojo or a studio. Every critical factor in this nightmarish scenario inevitably goes against his/her years of training or he/she has never been exposed to these criminal elements before.

Our Krav Maga self-defence training includes various other elements apart from Krav Maga to powerfully aid you deal with a violent crime or a criminal activity. Everything that is harmful or a foul in martial arts, is most likely a successful tactic in Krav Maga. Every possible second in our training, you are instructed to deal with unpredictable, unethical violent threats that is taking place in an inhospitable ambience where all the odds are most likely against you. Frankly, speaking there is little to no apt comparison between the diverse worlds of Krav Maga and Martial Arts. Martial Arts are best designed for those who typically prefer being trained in a martial arts environment. We are designed purely and only to adequately & effectively deal with modern crime.

[s123u_spoiler title=”I might or am facing bullies or bad people in my life, can Krav Maga help me defeat them?” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

NO self-defence whether from Karate, Kung-fu or Krav Maga will work if you blindly get into a crime situation & try to punch / kick your way out of it. Criminals also know that and that’s why they plan & come prepared either psychologically or physically with weapons, etc.

If you’re facing any serious issues with criminals or bad elements, first approach the local authorities or lawyers or NGO to support your case. Krav Maga can help you escape the situation by prevention and avoidance of the threat in the first place and if nothing else works, then maybe help you escape by elimination of the threat by using deadly force. However, violence is never a good answer to violent criminals as they usually have the backup & free time to plan another fatal attack on you with more weapons or more manpower.

Plus, being violent on the street will put you in law & order situation with the law enforcement (police). If you seriously injury someone or kill someone, no matter what is the valid reason, you will have to face serious judicial enquiry & maybe punishment (jail) and invest a lot of money in lawyers, police or medical expenses for that person or yours plus you may even ruin your career by having a permanent criminal record on your resume. In my experience, violence has rarely helped me make my life better, in fact it has been more difficult to face the consequences of hurting someone.

Krav Maga self-defence is not a magic wand to make your problems disappear; it’s a tool, if you use the knowledge of Krav Maga wisely, it helps a lot more in real life. Only for absolutely genuine unpredictable fatal threats, pure violent Krav Maga is the best system to help you survive & escape.

A combat class always has a certain risk factor involved in injuries ranging from a sprain, strains to fractures. In the orientation as well in the class, Guru-ji Franklin Joseph regularly ensures safety is maintained all the time with proper safety gears & discipline in training. Still rare accidents do happen. We accept that reality, the minute we enter a combat zone i.e., training area. Hence, there will be no extension in time-lines or fees refund for any kind of injuries that one get either inside or outside the class.

There is a positive skill set to learn when dealing with injuries or failures in Krav Maga self-defence training. Let’s imagine you have sprained your right arm. Specialist Guru-ji Franklin Joseph will always recommend you to still attend the class and aim in participating using your left arm and both legs.

The reason is to encourage ‘we never quit mental attitude’ is to deal with a possible street crime in which getting hurt is part of your reality. Guru-ji Franklin Joseph recalls one time with a 104 fever & an injured leg after pain conditioning, he walked 3 kilometres to & fro from his studio & lied down all day just to observe training of his Krav Maga class. Every second in training, we learn something new, either about ourselves or about our enemy.

Specialist Guru-ji Franklin Joseph has no martial arts background, but he has survived 22-25 years in petty gangs and abusive circumstances of street crime, where he gradually converted his terrible experiences into positive knowledge. He understands how these criminals think & how they utilise elements like fear, chaos, panic, pain, failure, personal insecurity, etc. to execute crime.

Using his experience, he merges Israeli Military Krav Maga self-defence tactics with knowledge of Combat Science, Guerrilla Hit Run Deception strategy, Neurobehavioural Crisis Management, Conflict Situational Awareness, De-escalation Drills along with some aspects of Rapid Action Cognetive Linguistic & Body Language, Criminal Profiling and Crime Psychology, etc., added to his methodology of self-defence training.

[s123u_spoiler title=”Explain your motto: ‘Power is Knowledge – forged in Fear, Pain & Failure'” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]

Criminals know how to exploit because they observe and use the loopholes created by weakness in knowledge or lack of preparation in normal people. If we educate ourselves with how to plug most of the loopholes, then we are better prepared to deal with crime.

Few of the elements used by criminals are fear, pain & failure. Most of us consider these elements as negative if we start believing in these elements.

Once you are training in Krav Maga self-defence, you will learn how to extract information from these so-called negative elements and use them to your advantage to prevent, avoid or even escape the majority of crime threats.
