OUR TRAINING METHODS

 

TRAINING MEMBERSHIPS

ETKM’s core training is based on our Krav Maga curriculum.  Sectioned out for Beginners, Advanced, and Elite our students train in 1hr classes that we offer 5 days / week. Developing offensive and defensive skills through technique training, drilling, and pressure testing. 

PRIVATE LESSONS

We accept students of all ablities many of whom need one on one training because of certain cricumstances in their life.  Everything from  scheduling, age restrictions, trial lessons, or wanting more focused training.  We commonly train youth 10-13yrs, Victims of violence, and new students who want to get a good foundation before starting classes. 

PARTNERS IN TRAINING

ETKM has teamed up with Freedom Defense Training as our Firearms and Tactical Medicine training partner.  Paladin Security Solutions is our partner in private security services, training,  and consulting. They are hands down the regional experts in these fields having real world experience and thousands of hours of training citizens, Law Enforcement, Private Security, and Military Personel.  

WORKSHOPS ADD MORE INDEPTH TRAINING

Our workshops are training sessions for our ETKM Students that focus on specific areas of violence that we cover much more in depth than regular classes. Our focus is for our students to be well rounded in self defense as they would see in the real world. It’s not about collecting tons techniques but rather  drilling the principles and the ones you know in different areas of pressure and stress.
