haganah self defense

The HaganaH F.I.G.H.T. program provides the world’s only complete self-defense system with realistic, practical solutions for worst-case scenario attacks/threats. Students learn defenses against punches, kicks and other strikes, escapes and releases from chokes, bear hugs, head locks and other grappling techniques, defense against knive attacks, handguns threats and other weapons with explosive practical reality based tactics. Hudson Valley HaganaH exposes you to the entire core system in just a 18 week rotation which mirrors the Israeli Defense Forces.

Students are drilled to create a mindset that reacts to a violent assault by immediately switching from a victim to an aggressor. Every touch is designed to create damage. Every tactic has both a defensive and offensive element. Techniques are overlapped to “short-circuit” and overwhelm the attacker. THERE ARE NO RULES of engagement. Every technique builds on instinctive responses.

The HaganaH teaching approach is designed to mirror military style teaching while recognizing the time demands and typical fitness levels of the working adult. The curriculum is simple to learn and presented in a comprehensive realistic manner. All material will ultimately rely on muscle memory so the scenarios are therefore short, sweet, and to the point. Students will not have to memorize 100 different techniques that they will ultimately forget when the time to comes to REACT UNDER STRESS!

The HaganaH F.I.G.H.T. program is taught to civilians, law enforcment and military personnal. Just about anyone can do it, regardless of strength, size, or physical fitness. You’ll get in great shape, have an absolute blast and get the same kind of confidence of the proffessionals. The confidence that comes from knowing you can handle whatever situation you might encounter. It’s confidence that comes out not only in physically threatening situations (which will hopefully never occur) but also in your daily life. We include upgraded and evolved scenario training. Our system is continually enhanced and combat proven!
