Many people think that self-defense classes are meant to teach you how to fight, but that's only in the worst case scenario. In reality, self defense actually means doing everything in your power to avoid getting into a fight.
That's where we come in.
Although combat technique is an important part of our self-defense courses, we also teach a wide array of skills that can help you steer clear of a fight in the first place. For example, verbal de-escalation can be a very effective technique in fending off a would-be attacker.
But the most important thing you can take away from our classes is the self-confidence that comes from training in realistic scenarios. Our classes are taught in an extremely supportive environment and training is tailored to help each individual be prepared to encounter an actual assault.
Regardless of your size, speed or athletic skills, we can provide you with training on how to:
Avoid being a target
Assess your surroundings
React to a confrontation
Conduct yourself in a crisis
Anticipate your attacker's next move
Breaking an attacker's grasp
How, when, and where to strike if assaulted
This course is designed to prepare you for an assault, but it also gives you the tools you need to avoid the fight altogether. So whether you want to learn how to fight, or more importantly, how to avoid fighting, we can help.

Super nice instructor. I’m currently taking his classes and he is very great for beginners and is very patient. He knows what he’s doing and enjoys it as well. Fantastic class:)

I've trained at a handful of Krav Maga schools and this one is exceptionally good.

A style of training is only as good as the instructor teaching it. Steven is the REAL DEAL. He has actual experience with real world conflict, while many instructors out there do not. He is also the only International Krav Maga Federation certified instructor in Phoenix. You will learn practical techniques and have fun with each class!

I highly recommend Maccabees Krav Maga! When I started taking classes with instructor Steven Comas, I had no background in martial arts or self defense. Instructor Steven Comas does an excellent job of explaining and demonstrating techniques.
The classes are interactive and very practical. The instructor is always trying to improve his teaching and organize his classes so that his students get the most benefit out of it. He gives individual feedback when needed so that you can learn the techniques correctly. You will walk out of this class feeling better prepared to fight when you must and escape when you can.

The instructor is very knowledgeable about what he is teaching and helps you on your technique.
I enjoy learning Krav Maga and I believe it teaches you how to protect yourself better than the other martial arts for real life situations.
I’ve reviewed Jui Jitsu, wing chung, tai kwon do, karate and Krav Maga for about 4 months and in the end I chose Krav Maga.

My experience at Maccabees Krav Maga has been nothing but EXTRAORDINARY! Instructor Steven is EXCELLENT at his craft! I've been a student at Maccabees Krav Maga since the inception and I've had nothing but a great experience. Instructor Steven is patient and you can tell he really enjoys teaching the Men, Women and Children and is passionate about making sure every student gets his undivided attention during class, he makes learning Krav Maga FUN... yet he trains you to be able to defend yourself, in any situation.
I HIGHLY recommend that if you haven't signed up for membership at Maccabees Krav Maga, that you do so ASAP!
Everyday you are not a member of this school, you are jeopardizing your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
I'm a member FOR LIFE! You will be too, once you join!

This place recently opened. Steven is great with the kids in the children's class and engages them with techniques and fun activities to keep them moving and learning. The adult class was amazing as well. Steven created a positive learning environment and gave us a great workout in addition to the lessons. He's easy to work with and accommodating. Great place led by a talented instructor.
