    At Apex, the only limitations are the ones you set on yourself–develop confidence and essential self-defense skills, all while getting a great workout.

  • Real-World Defense

Fitness is a much valued component of Krav Maga training and the intense workout often results in weight loss. Our training is specifically for people of ALL fitness levels. It’s designed for YOU!


The goal of Krav Maga is simple principles and brutally effective techniques aimed at dealing with real-world violence. Combining aggression with proven fighting techniques and realistic training drills, our students are better prepared to deal with the stress of a violent encounter.


Fighting skills are an essential component to a realistic self-defense program, but fight/sparring classes are often unstructured and can be intimidating to new students. Our fight program is designed to start you from the ground up.

Law Enforcement

Apex has supplied training to local police officers, Connecticut State Police, Army MP’s, active duty Marines, former Navy SEAL’S, and corrections officers. This program is designed to further prepare personnel to deal with the more intense and realistic threats that they may face in their everyday work environments.

Krav Maga is for Everyone

From our Youth Training Division to fighting and Law Enforcement training, Krav Maga is appropriate for newcomers and practiced martial artists alike. Come in for a FREE intro session and experience it for yourself!
