Haganah Classes

Translated, “Defense” in Hebrew, is a hybrid Martial Art created by Israeli Special Forces Commando and Martial Arts Master, Mike Lee Kanarek –

Our Haganah program is designed to help you develop practical self-defense skills right away.  You are exposed to the system’s entire repertoire over a four-month cycle, called a rotation. Rotations consist of a series of agility, strength, and combative exercises to increase physical fitness and proficiency.

Each class starts with aerobic exercises and foundational, precision drills to program your mind-body, muscle memory.  After warmup, you pair-up and train a series of combative moves for engaging in hand-to-hand and weapons-based, real-life street scenarios.  While effective for many situations, Haganah/F.I.G.H.T. is based on a few simple principles:

  • Avoid getting hit
  • Don’t be fancy
  • Defend yourself in the quickest, safest and most effective way
  • Use the opponent’s vulnerable and weak points
  • Use available objects as weapons
  • If forced to fight, no rules, no limits
  • Maximum Efficiency in Minimal Time
