Krav Maga for Teens

What can Krav Maga do for you?

San Diego women have found our self-defense classes very rewarding. They feel and act more confident -- even when far away from home. It is naturally, teenagers are feeling confident but are typically more prepared for dangers in or outside of high-school.

IKMCarlsbadCA.com has recently opened its doors to new students and a dozen or so new people are taking environment of our new Carlsbad, California location.

Indeed you are learning a self defense system. However, "you are also getting a good workout", says Benjamin Halcewicz. By attending Krav Maga classes 7 time a week, you are also "staying in shape".

Remember, Krav Maga will teach you real-life techniques -- how to throw a punch, block a punch, avoid a punch, and disarm your attacker -- to help you get out of a dangerous situation.


You will not teach you to fight but rather "how to defense yourself in a fight!" You can use force but NOT retaliation. This is how you will keep yourself and your family safe!

Call (858) 349-8795 and speak with Krav Maga instructor, Benjamin Halcewicz, he is happy to answer any questions you may have.

Women's Self Defense

San Diego women have been forced to research self-defense methods. In the last few years, women have witnessed or heard situations where men have taken advantage of their vulnerability and weakness. Case in point, North Park residents were concerned as the number of attacks in their area increased without leads or an idea of where the perpetrator would attack next.

Since then, women's self defense classes have been offered to show women how to confront their attackers, intruders, or just overly aggressive acquaintances. Whether these guys are armed or not, women cannot leave themselves unprepared.

Benjamin Halcewicz launched IKMCarlsbadCA.com to give Carlsbad female residents a "fighting chance!" His experience in martial arts combined with many years of training in Krav Maga have led him to establish a Krav Maga Gym in Carlsbad, CA. Benjamin now trains men and women alike and teaches them real life self-defense. By working closely with each student, Benjamin can tailor the approach so that each student is empowered and confident in fighting back!

Unlike Martial Arts techniques Krav Maga takes the art of self defense another level. Basically taking the fight into the streets! Are you aware that not all self defense techniques can be used in real-life situations? Karate, for example, often takes the student to get "set" and this could take a few seconds. In some cases, it would not take an attacker that long to disable the victim!

Krav Maga on the other hand is based on real life situations and its techniques focus on disabling the attacker before he ever thinks of moving forward.

All students appreciate the Krav Maga training they have received. Especially women whom as students, have learned how to free themselves from a hold, fight back, and escape from dangerous situations.

How quickly can a woman learn self-defense?

This depends on the individual but also on the person teaching you self-defense. Krav Maga instructor, Benjamin Halcewicz says, "skill development varies due to time, fitness, and the overall dedication that each student has; including their attitude." Though it may take months to master the art of Krav Maga, self confidence starts building up from the very first class.

You are invited to learn Krav Maga in beautiful Carlsbad, CA. For more information, please call Krav Maga instructor Benjamin Halcewicz at (858) 349-8795. You can schedule your first class today!

Teen Attacked Defends Herself

Attack occurred inside her home!

On May 8th, while watching the news, we heard that a 13-year old girl was attacked as she entered her home.

The teenage girl admits, she knew she was being followed home when she left school, but when the predator met her at her front door and began to ask personal questions, she immediately tried to go inside.

Unfortunately, the predator was determined and pushed himself inside the house.

The video surveillance system her parents installed, shows the man grab her while she fought back. Her instincts took over and she is seen slamming her hand into his face. The impact must have been painful because he backed off and took a look outside the door. As he pondered his next move, the girl ran into her parent's closet and texted her dad -- who immediately called 911. Read More on this story here...

The story comes from a quiet neighborhood in West San Jose, California. As you can imagine this type of incident can happen anywhere. In fact, this is the type of true story that should make every parent ask the question "how will my kid defend herself against an attacker or sexual predator?". We can tell you, Krav Maga is the answer!

If you are not familiar with the popular real-life self defense system, we invite you to give Krav Maga instructor Benjamin Halcewicz a call to schedule a "live" demonstration. He can be reached directly at (858) 349-8795 (call or text!).
