Vanguard Krav Maga®

Vanguard Krav Maga® (VKM) began development in 2009 with the purpose of designing a system that would truly be relevant to people here in the United States. The developers of Vanguard Krav Maga® experienced the shortcomings of other organizations and revised the curriculum to move away from sport, theory, and tradition to provide a simple and effective system that was truly tailored to modern situations in the United States.

We understand that everyone has varying physical capabilities and desires for training and that the typical approach to krav maga can place limits on people and their advancement. VANGUARD KRAV MAGA®’s trademarked MT2™ System is revolutionary in the Krav Maga, martial arts, and personal protection industry. Our training methods provide a path for people of all ages and ability levels to advance in the system and reach their full potential. Rank advancement options and guidelines in VANGUARD KRAV MAGA® are clear and defined to maintain integrity and not create a “watered-down” system.

Whether you’re an experienced martial artist or a newcomer to the self defense and fitness world, VANGUARD KRAV MAGA® offers a positive and exciting workout while learning reality-based self defense. The program is designed for people of all ages, experience, and fitness levels.
