• Krav Maga for Civilians

    Krav Maga was originally developed for the military sector. This is the reason why standard Krav Maga training is addressed to as "civilian". 

    The Civilian Krav Maga training courses provided here are Civilian (adults) & Women's Krav Maga.

    You can take Krav Maga a couple times a week and still learn quickly and efficiently. This is due to the fact that Krav Maga training is known being easy to learn thanks to the fact that it relies on our natural responses and reflexes. You are not having to reconfigure your instincts; only to condition them a little to be effective defenses.  

  • Women's Self Defense Classes

    Women's Krav Maga techniques were developed by the IKMF as a part of the growing demand for women in the civilian realm to be able to defend themselves against attackers, especially muggers, and rapists. This program tackles the issues of differences between the attacker and the woman; it focuses on women’s size, strength, and mental condition while under attack. 

    These women-only self defense classes enable women of all ages to learn, in a relative short period, central self defense techniques specifically designated to provide them with defense tools while attacked.

  • Krav Maga Could Save Your Life

    In a world where random acts of violence, deliberate assaults, and crazy people are harming innocents, learning to defend one's self has become a necessity rather than a hobby. The knowledge, skill, and actual ability to act when forced into a dangerous situation can help save lives. Whether it's you, your friend, or family member, be prepared to take any threat head on.

  • At CounterStrike Krav Maga, your local IKMF (International Krav Maga Federation) training center was created for the purpose of teaching you (yes, you specifically) not only to defend yourself against those that would do you harm, but to strike back. Thus, the name CounterStrike. No matter your background, CounterStrike Krav Maga in Pelham, AL outside of Birmingham can teach you defend yourself effectively faster than any other system available. We guarantee it!

  • I had the occasion to assist Nate with a workshop recently. His expertise is considerable. His teaching ability is focused, assured and complete. His communication skills are above board and his passion is obvious. The facility was outfitted appropriately and his students were respectful and professional. I would work with him again, and I would recommend him to anyone seeking this type of training.
