I have read quite a bit on Krav Maga but have not been able to find anything about teens. I have a daughter that is 15 years old 5"8 and about 150lbs. She is very aggressive and I feel as though this would be a very good confidence builder as well as good training for her. I plan to take the class with her in the hopes that we would practice together as not to slow down anyone elses. What are your thoughts? Is this too much to expose her too?
Thank you all for responding. I have contacted my local Krav Maga place and I am going to take a class tomorrow night first and then see what I think. The instuctor said that he would accept her because of her height and stature. I still appreciate your thoughts on this matter.
Okay.........I can hardly lift my arms to type today...I took the class and it was awesome. Right up my alley. The instructors were just great. Excellent work out!! I was concentating so much on the moves that I barely noticed that I was sweating like a pig! Loved it! I really think that this class will be fine for my 15 year old thanks to the instructors being flexable. I will report back in after our class on this monday and update. Thanks again for your input!
Okay.......My daughter made it through the class!! Man is this perfect for her. She never stopped once she kept going and trying. She LOVED it!! Wanted to stay and try another class!! I think this worked out for 1 main reason....The instructors were amazing with her. They treated her like an adult and never gave up on her once. She recieved so much attention and direction from the instructors that you couldn't help but want to work hard at it.
So we joined and are going to try to stick with a 2 times a week routine. and as for me well I now have a new addiction! Just love everything about krav maga!
