It’s hard for us to even begin describing 2015. In addition to our three main locations going strong with classes 7 days a week, we had over 50 seminars and workshops. Over fifty! And our reputation for providing the best in self defense attracted private security companies from across the US to get trained at our HQ, brought us into many local companies and community goodwill events, including several fundraisers and self defense lectures.
We added to our stellar instructor team the now three-time World Champion Flavio Meier, who brings his expertise as a coach and professor of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the mats in Santa Clara. We graduated a new class of certified Krav Maga instructors through our Krav Maga Instructor Certification program, which stands heads above the rest with its material and quality with over 180 hours of training. We stood proudly as our Practitioner, Graduate, and Expert students from across the world kept pushing through, breaking their limits, and graduated a level or more this year!
So what’s to come in 2016?
To begin, you might have noticed a new name showing up around the school. Well, it’s official! We are now:
What does this mean? It means you still get the same high quality training as you have always received from us, but now as Tactica we are formally focusing on more disciplines and systems than just Krav Maga.
With this change, we are forming a new Tactica BJJ Team from the already successful BJJ competitive group led by Flavio Meier. We’re moving our advanced Tactical Firearms, Law Enforcement, Military, and Security Industry training to the Tactica Professional Training Division. Our functional fitness programs are now under Tactica Fitness. And last but not least, we’re moving all civilian self defense including Krav Maga and civilian firearms training to the Tactica Krav Maga Institute.
On top of all of these changes, we are also adding to our elite instructor team the IBA Super Flyweight Champion Bruno Escalante, who now teaches adult and youth Boxing out of our Santa Clara HQ!
Whew! So in summary, we are still Krav Maga Institute and your memberships remain unchanged — but under our new Tactica name, we honor all of the other non-Krav Maga disciplines you have grown to know and love over the last few years. And with that out of the way, let’s get started on making everything bigger and better in 2016!
