Non-Firearms & Self-Defense Courses

At On Guard Defense Training Center, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with using a firearm for personal protection.  But that doesn't mean you shouldn't arm yourself with information, skills and the tools necessary to protect yourself from being an easy target.

Krav Maga

Krav Maga is the official Hand-to-Hand Combat System of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and combines multiple techniques from boxing, judo, aikido, wrestling and Muay Thai.  Krav students will learn practical defensive skills that prepare them to protect themselves and their loved ones in real-world situations.

Scott King, Owner & Lead Instructor of Southern Ohio Krav Maga,  teaches students how to defend against common strikes, chokes & grabs and how to go on the offensive using punches, palm strikes, hammer fists, kicks, elbows & more!

Men, women and youth ages 12 and older benefit from Krav by learning valuable self-defense techniques while getting a great workout! 

On Guard Defense is proud to partner with Southern Ohio Krav Maga to offer our clients yet another defensive tool for their toolkits.  Join us this spring as we kick off weekly Krav sessions.
