Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. That's a favourite quote of Christopher Wells, an experienced fighter who wants to teach people how to unlock the power of their most devastating body part – their brain.
Chris is teaching Commando Krav Maga, a style of fighting that is based on your natural reactions. Keeping things simple is a guiding principle of Commando Krav Maga; effective rather than cool-looking.

The emphasis for Chris is on information and techniques that you can use in actual fighting situations.
Chris never gives a lesson without framing it in the context of a local setting.
"Okay, you're at a party, some guy says something to your girlfriend, you say something to him, he rushes for you, trying to grab your throat, what do you do?"
That's a typical start to a new lesson from Chris. Be sure to ask him about the dreaded ball tap and its correct use.
There are two classes every week, with separate sessions for men and women.
Chris said one of his goals is to get more women involved in the classes. Although he has experience with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Eskrima, and the S.P.E.A.R System, he chose Commando Krav Maga because it's easy to learn and accessible to almost anyone.
About a third of every class is dedicated to exercise, since, as Chris puts it, "you have to be fit to fight".
