Krav Maga might look like something out of “Fight Club,” but proponents say the philosophy of the fighting system develops skills that translate to the office.
“Krav Maga training develops an individual’s ability to effectively deal with confrontation,” says Danny Zelig, founder of the Tactica Krav Maga Institute, based in San Francisco. “People learn to maintain confidence and mental function without shying away from conflict due to fear of confrontation.”
“Making decisions under stress boosts mental strength and teaches students to focus their efforts and energy on the most important, immediate needs,” he says. Krav Maga develops heightened negotiation and improvisation skills through situational awareness, he says.
“An individual learns to take cues from others during their attempts to de-escalate and negotiate with an aggressor during dangerous situations,” Mr. Zelig says. “A heightened sense of awareness allows leaders to understand their peers, co-workers and upper management and to be in tune and aware of their co-workers’ current mental states by the cues they give.”

Krav Maga has been a fantastic addition to our corporate fitness. I have never had a class be so well-received. From day one, the class attendance was full, and every week the students always came to me with positive feedback. It seemed like every week, they became more and more excited about the class and what they were learning. The fact that the class attracted an equal amount of men and women was wonderful to see, and I was so happy to see so many people coming back to class every single week. They absolutely loved the structure and content of the class and were so excited to learn more.
Alex proved to be an excellent teacher. From day one, she had the ability to not only establish authority in the room, but also approachability. She is clearly a very skilled instructor in her craft, and I feel very fortunate that we were able to experience her talent and skills.
