Step One

Register for a Krav Maga Induction

Your first step is to register for an induction. An induction is an introduction to Krav Maga seminar and must be your first class (unless you have prior relevant experience at a reputable Krav Maga school). An induction lasts approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and covers some of the core principles of Krav Maga, effective striking methods, principles of self defense, preventing attacks, multiple attackers, stress drills, health and safety and some basic techniques. It helps ensure you get the most out of your classes and gives you a solid foundation to start classes confidently and without getting hurt or hurting others.

Step Two

Krav Maga Induction

After your induction, potential members are either:

– Invited to become a member of the KMI NYC family
– Not invited (if we’re not a good match for each other) or
– Invited to wait list if we are at capacity.

We strictly cap our memberships in order to ensure the highest quality training and also to ensure we have the right students (it helps ensure we are all a good match for one another: the right level of commitment, same goals and positive attitude). We cannot therefore always invite every student to join as a member after an induction.

Step Three

Register For Your First Month

If you are invited to join or wait list, please do so by registering for your first month of membership by clicking on the green GET STARTED button on our home page. Buying your membership online either ensures your status as a member (if you have been invited) or, if informed beforehand that you’re eligible to be admitted as a member but there is a wait list, it guarantees your position on the wait list. The waiting time can vary and be anything between 1 week or 1 month to 3 months. If you decide to cancel your position on the wait list you get a 100% refund.
