THE ISRAELI MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
We are the most authentic Israeli martial arts school in Southern California, featuring classes in all major aspects of Israeli self defense and martial arts. We offer elite Israeli martial arts and self defense classes for adults, children, women, families, security teams and Law Enforcement Officials of Los Angeles and Ventura county areas.
The Israeli Martial Arts Academy has been building fighters since 2010.
It is the first American branch of Hisardut (Survival) self defense, created by legendary Jiu-Jitsu Grand Master, Dennis Hanover. An elite style of literal “MMA”, Hisardut is a distillation of the most effective elements of various martial arts, particularly Judo, Karate and Jiu-Jitsu.
The Israeli Martial Arts Academy takes a reality-based approach in all self-defense training – intensive Karate randori drills, to calculated jiu-jitsu pressure holds. In any given class you may thwart chokeholds, practice a hip throw, or disarm knife and gun attacks. The Hisardut system is the art of effective combat.
More than a gym, the Israeli Martial Arts Academy is also a community. Focused on building strength, ability and character, IMAA is committed to a culture of integrity, respect and safety. These classes are intense and command commitment, but whatever your current fitness or ability level, the aim is to build you up – never tear you down (as featured on the History Channel’s “Human Weapon” Krav Maga episode).
The Israeli Martial Arts Academy is centrally located in Westlake Village, convenient to all surrounding Los Angeles and Ventura cities, including: Agoura Hills, Thousand Oaks, Calabasas, Malibu, Simi Valley, Oak Park, and Woodland Hills.
