Youth Krav Maga

Best Kids Krav Maga Program Near Allen


In today’s world, it’s more important than ever for kids to feel safe and confident. Our Youth Krav Maga program empowers children with the skills they need to thrive. Krav Maga, a self-defense system designed for real-world effectiveness, equips your child with practical techniques to stay safe and protected. But our program goes beyond physical defense. It builds character, teaches valuable discipline, and fosters confidence that will resonate in all areas of your child’s life.

Anatomy of a class

Here's what to expect

1. A fun and engaging warmup to start the class off!
2. Expert lead instruction on how and when to use combatives such as punches, kicks, knees, and elbows.
3. Dedicated time to learn defenses against common attacks used against children both in and outside schools, such as headlocks, punches, and bear hugs.
4. A final ending drill to test the information retained throughout the class. 

We do not use any forms or katas in class. Our youth program focuses on working one-on-one with your training partners to help each other improve, build social skills, and foster meaningful friendships! Far from just teaching kids how to fight, our classes maintain a focus on the de-escalation of violence and that our students should fight only when absolutely necessary. 

Putting this all together in every class is how we effectively develop the muscle memory and mindset needed to survive a real-world attack. Our certified instructors are there to provide guidance, individual feedback, and a safe training environment for our students. 


We motivate students to improve their overall level of fitness through games and circuit training routines that improve aerobic endurance, strength, speed, agility and coordination. Youth Krav Maga will also feature different themes that focus on respect, discipline, teamwork, goal setting, leadership and more to help make them ready for all aspects life. Let us partner with you to help your child grow up safe, strong and confident.

Promote anti-bullying strategies

Inherent to our training is a set of comprehensive anti-bullying strategies, teaching students how to de-escalate situations, set boundaries, and assert themselves with confidence.

What do people say about us?

  • …after I had Reese, I wanted to find things that we could do together. He isn’t into soccer or sports or anything like that but he likes this and this is something we can do together. And what better way to exercise? You’re learning something valuable and getting into shape.

  • KMD is awesome. The instructors are all very knowledgeable and friendly. My son and I have been taking classes together, and we have been having a great time and are learning a lot. I also feel their pricing model is very reasonable. I would totally recommend for anyone interested in learning self defense.

  • Krav Maga Dallas is one of, if not THE best. They have a well rounded program for all ages and is one of the few Krav places that is certified by Krav Maga Worldwide,which is the organization that brought Krav to the US by the originator. Can’t say enough about how awesome the owner and staff are!!
