Schools & University Programs


Every child needs a chance to thrive in school, and we believe that is best accomplished with good health and confidence. We center our activities on the things that students enjoy the most: being active, having fun, and learning something new and valuable to their existence. In a “classroom” with a social atmosphere, which we create in our programs, students learn even more.

KMCA staff members are all experts in martial arts, fitness and leadership instruction. Our staff is composed of former military personnel with incredible leadership and fitness experience. In addition to working with countless charter schools, our staff works with the NYC Board of Education, SUNY and CUNY university systems. We tailor our programs to the age demographic of our participants.

Our goal is to introduce and develop healthy habits in children while they have fun and to help them become environmentally aware because they are at a vulnerable age at which they are susceptible to bullying and abduction. Our lessons that will be designed specifically for your facility are easy to learn, simple to teach, fun, and effective. We aim to improve the coordination, agility, strength, and flexibility of our participants so that they go on to live healthy and safe lives.

Our school programs combine fast paced, fun fitness activities with games. We make sure our seminars match the needs of our audience and that they’re high energy and versatile to keep the students engaged and excited the entire time. In every facility that we work in, parents rave about this program. Few institutions take the necessary steps to truly develop the health and well being of their members. By bringing in this dynamic, affordable and highly marketable program you will not only thrill your current families, but will be adding an attraction for future students and their parents.

We introduced the Krav Maga program several years ago and since then it has been a tremendous success. Our students love the combination of self defense and fitness that is seamlessly combined into a fun and entertaining program. KMCA has been a wonderful organization to work with and their team is incredible to work with. I would recommend this program to any educational facility!

As head of the Innovate Manhattan Charter School, I would like to confirm and endorse Krav Maga Centers of America which have been part of our schools physical education programming for the last year.  The staff is phenominal with the kids, teaching them self defense, engaging them with dynamic and fun fitness activities, all while building their confidence, character and ability to think under pressure.  Their program is very unique and exciting, it is with full confidence that I recommend it for any school or community center looking for a truly exceptional kids classes and healthy program initiatives.

Here are some things that the kids enjoy during Krav Maga. Students look forward to the Krav Maga session because they are constantly moving and trying new things. As the supervisor, when I walk in and look at the warm up, students are moving, jumping and having a good time. Students like doing the punching bags and doing the body rolls on the mat. Finally, students rave about using the soft gloves and being able to defend themselves with it.

I wanted thank you so much for your involvement with our Personal Safety Expo. It was an incredible event and something that we will be doing on a regular basis. The students learn valuable information on how they can keep themselves safe on and off campus and they thoroughly enjoyed participating in all of your classes and demonstrations.
