5D Defensive Training System

Unlike static range training, which conditions you to have tunnel vision and stand still in a critical incident, Scenario Based Training is the world where we begin to combine the legal, mental, hand-to-hand and firearm implementation in simulated scenarios, designed to deepen learning and absorption of skills.

Tactical and Krav Maga Combatives Training

Training you in hand-to-hand strategies and firearms tactics for personal defense against adversaries within extreme close quarters, common structures and vehicles.

Learn Krav Maga and Self-Defense

As the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Mossad, Krav Maga is considered by many to be the most adaptable and efficient hand-to-hand defense system in the world.

Most critical incidents happen within clinching distance to 6 feet, and they happen suddenly, violently and with little to warning. The Integrative Defense Strategies Krav Maga, Ladies Self-Defense and Concealed Carry Combat Series is geared toward integrating the hand-to-hand and firearm defense skills necessary to avoid or stop the threat at these distances.Through the use of intensive and innovative training practices, at Integrative Defense Strategies we employ established tactics and strategies that have been proven effective time and time again in real world critical incidents. If firearms aren't your thing, check out our hands free Krav Maga Program you will be glad you did!
