Defend Yourself: Krav Maga Night

The events of the past few weeks have caused people to reach out about learning self defense, so we listened! In partnership with The Chevra, Jewish Graduate Student Network, & Tribe 12 we invite 20s/30s in Philly’s Jewish community to this hands-on primer of Gracie jiu-jitsu and Krav Maga street survival tactics. This class is a taste of a *8 -week course that we’ll be offering in the fall!

Our (badass) instructors are U.S. Army Cavalry Scout Brandon Williams who brings 5+ years of commando Krav Maga training and Louis DeAndre, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt with 5+ years of judo and 7+ years MMA training.

6:30pm: Arrival, stretching, chatting
7-8pm: One-hour self defense class

No experience required! Please bring a water bottle and dress in gym/comfy clothes and sneakers. When you arrive at the 12th Street Gym, someone will greet you at the entrance and direct you to the class.

Space is limited! $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
