Sharpening the blade with Vanguard Krav Maga
In addition to the obvious self-defense aspects of the system, Krav Maga offers excellent overall health and wellness benefit
In the world of ever shrinking budgets, personnel allocations, and time to train, law enforcement and military personnel have in many cases been passed the onus to keep themselves current, in shape and properly trained to deal with today’s environment.
Understandably, today’s armed professionals are seeking methods to accomplish multiple tasks in a minimal amount of time.
Enter, Vanguard Krav Maga.
The genius of Vanguard Krav Maga (VKM), its founders, instructors, and practitioners is in their development of this combat-proven system for use by municipal law enforcement personnel.
The developers of VKM were wise to seek the input of United States law enforcement personnel to assist with curriculum development. The VKM system includes the traditional deadly-force applications found in traditional Krav Maga, as well as soft- or empty-handed techniques.
I was pleased to see that the core of what VKM offers is very similar in nature to what our departmental program is centered around. If I was forced to use a minimal amount of words to describe the similarities found in police defensive tactics and Vanguard Krav Maga, I would say “simple and effective.”
In addition to the obvious self-defense aspects of the system, Krav Maga offers excellent overall health and wellness benefit. Many officers who practice the VKM system boast systematic weight loss, improved cardiovascular health, and the confidence to stay in the fight.
Invest in Yourself
For operational security, the VKM Force Training Division offers specific courses that are restricted to law enforcement/military. This allows the individual service member or officer to train absent prying eyes, as well as ask questions and run drills that are job specific and meet their personal needs.
As always, train hard, stay safe, and win the fight.
