  • review rating 5  Good environment, people are real welcoming. The BJJ classes are awesome, classes might not be large, but it's always quality rolls. Come give it a try, you won't regret it.

  • review rating 5  If you want to learn practical offensive/defensive moves, this is the 'art/technique' AND place for you. They concisely teach you the move and then you immediately do it through repetition. Not only do you learn effective skills, you get a good workout! Due to my military obligation ending, I returned to my home state. Unfortunately the Krav Maga in my home state is not as well run. Too much explanation and not enough practice. Total Defense is the place for you!

  • review rating 5  I've always hated working out at a gym or in public for that matter. So I was really nervous to try Total Defense's Krav Maga program. But I am definitely a convert! The staff totally cares for the gym members. They make self-defense really approachable and provide an amazing workout. I definitely recommend you check it out whether you're looking to learn real-world self defense techniques or just looking for a great workout in a positive environment!

  • review rating 5  I've been taking Krav Maga classes here for few months now and I love this place. Great workout while you learn to defend yourself in real life situations. Instructors are knowledgeable and encouraging and will help you push yourself to get better and train harder.
