In the Krav Maga business, not all schools are created equal. Krav Maga instructors generally do not have to answer to a state agency or have specific training, but schools belonging to nationally and internationally recognized organizations—such as the American Taekwondo Association (ATA), Krav Maga World Wide require their Krav Maga instructors to become certified in a rigorous curriculum prior to owning or operating a Krav Maga school. These certified instructors must keep their national certifications and qualifications up to date. Master Instructor; Tracy Lee Thomas was certified on September 11 th, 2001 in Jacksonville, Florida. This was during the same time therewere a series of coordinatedsuicide attacksbyal-Qaedaupon theUnited Stateson September 11, 2001.Here’s a checklist to go over when searching for the right Krav Maga school.· Are the school’s CPR certificates up-to-date?· Is the school an active member of a nationally or internationally recognized association, such as the ATA or Krav Maga World Wide?· Does the school have a class management skills certification and a physical skills certification?· How many years of training does the instructor have in Krav Maga? Ask to see the certificates and level of trained ranked by the association.Even after checking these things, it’s a good idea to have a state and federal background check done. Not knowing the history of the business and its instructors is scary.We wish you the best on your journey,Train hard and stay safeis a phrase we have taken serious since 1985,CST Krav MagaTracy Lee Thomaswww.kravmagavirginiabeach.comVirginia Beach Krav Maga Training Facility: 3809 Princess Anne Road Virginia Beach, Virginia 23456 Princess Anne Shoppes (next to Fitness One) Phone: 757-471-9002 Email:Inquiry@atakick.comVirginia Beach Krav Maga Training Facility: 1169 Nimmo Parkway Virginia Beach, Virginia 23456 Parkway Red Mill Commons Shopping Center (next to Pier One Imports) Phone: 757-563-9022 Email:Inquiry@atakick.comChesapeake Krav Maga Training Facility: 236 Carmichael Way Chesapeake, Virginia 23322 Edinburgh Commons Shopping Center (off route 168) Phone:757-432-9022 Email:Inquiry@atakick.comChesapeake Krav Maga Training Facility: 501F Kempsville Road Chesapeake, Virginia 23320 Greenbrier Shoppes Shopping Center (corner of Kempsville Road and Greenbrier Parkway) Phone: 757-382-9022 Email:Inquiry@atakick.com
