People About Us
My name is Doug and this is my testimonial for Krav Maga Worldwide (KM Worldwide), to put it candidly my experience with KM Worldwide has been fucking incredible. I’m in my 20s and a DC native who has recently moved to the Ft. Lauderdale/Pompano area to start my structural engineering career. Upon arriving to the area, I began shopping for an activity/hobby that allowed me to clear my mind after the intensive design days in the office. It didn’t take long to find the website of the training center (which already had stellar reviews). I contacted Randall Koch (Pompano location owner and lead trainer) to set up my first appointment. I quickly became attached to the training program. Randall is an expert and does an exceptional job training his students. Randall keeps it interesting, he offers a variety of training routines which makes every class different; Randall is competent and has put a lot of work into perfecting his craft, training with him is training with the best (look him up on YouTube if you don’t believe me). The culture of the training center is unrivaled, the training environment is welcoming and supportive; the more advanced students are always willing to help and have become one of my best support systems. If you are a fitness enthusiast and are looking for a valuable/practical training option, check out Randall’s Krav Maga Worldwide Pompano Training Center; Like I said earlier, it is fucking incredible.
I started going to Krav Maga Worldwide two years ago with my daughter. The initial reason for joining was for my daughter to get more confidence, and some exercise, which honestly I needed as well. My wife researched different Krav Maga places in our area, and narrowed it down to one. The research paid off because we definitely chose the right training center for us, Koch Martial Arts. Glenda and Randall are great instructors, and are always giving encouragement. The classes are tough but fun. All techniques are explained thoroughly, and Randall and Glenda even make adjustments that they think will work better for each individual. Although you are being taught in a group, Glenda and Randall will always take the time to give individual attention to any students that asks even during the class. After class you are welcomed to stay and stretch, or work on any problems you may have had during class. The other students are friendly and out going, and those with more experience are always willing to give advice when needed. I highly recommend Koch Martial Arts and Krav Maga worldwide.
I would like to take the time to talk about Krav Maga Worldwide at Koch Martial Arts in Pompano Beach, Fl. (www.facebook.com/kochmartialarts).
I have been involved in various martial arts from approximately 1996 until the present time. I consider myself a student of martial arts in general, I possess a black belt one specific style and I stay current on real world events involving self-defense situations, as well as what it being shown on Youtube and other internet mediums. Therefore, I believe I have a good basis of knowledge to deliver a thorough review of Koch Martial Arts, and of the self-defense system itself.
As an active member of Law Enforcement for over 20 years, I am always striving to obtain the highest levels of training available to me, and this quest has lead me to begin my training in Krav Maga.
When I first decided to pursue another martial art, I considered my options. I knew I needed to supplement what I had already been taught over the years with some “common sense” and real world training, because, quite frankly, my years of training in other (I refer to them as “fantasy based”) styles seemed to lack this “real world” application. I definitely found what I was looking for with KMW Koch Martial Arts.
The style of Krav Maga is one of the, if not, THE most practical styles or martial arts. I say this not just because of my own history of training, but for the absolute beginner as well. Krav Maga blends hand to hand combat, both, in a stand-up situation, as well as ground applications. Krav Maga curriculum includes weapon disarming as well. The materials being taught are extremely straightforward and demonstrated in a very consistent fashion.
The head instructor/owner, Randall, is very knowledgeable in many areas, arts, and seems to have vast experience in real world application of the style he teaches. Randall approaches each self-defense technique instructed with enthusiasm and a great attention to detail.
The classes are full of students from many backgrounds, and a wide variety of ages. Randall injects a sense of fun and comedy into his teaching, but at all times remaining on point with how critical it is to stay focused while training and how serious the overall topic of self-defense is. Randall is very attentive while my fellow students and I train, and is quick to devote time to a student with any questions encountered.
To me, martial arts is a vehicle for developing human potential, and with that in mind, I am very pleased with my choice to train at KMW Koch Martial Arts. I would, and have, recommended the school to anyone wanting to learn self-defense, gain confidence, get fit, and just be around great people!
