Village of East Hills Trustee Clara Pomerantz is bringing the concept of Krav Maga, Israeli self-defense to the village. “It is fun, challenging, and a useful way to stay fit,” she said.
Pomerantz arranged for the instructors to come to the village, scheduled the event and then solicited residents to enroll. She invited children to participate in one class and adults to enroll in another time slot. As the reservations started pouring in, she realized she would even have to add another adult class.
The result was that the course was an overwhelming success and a generous admixture of fun, athleticism and exercise. Now more classes are being added. For information, click on the following link on the village website: http://www.villageofeasthills.org/kravmaga-signup.html.
The instructors are experts in martial arts, fitness and team-building instruction. Their experience comes not only comes from the classroom, but also from their own lengthy military service. Most all the instructors are members of Israel’s elite combat units with wide experience in leadership, instruction, and motivational speaking. They have a passion to share their skills and inspire others.
