Krav Maga Pittsburgh

Reality based self-defense comes to Pittsburgh

Krav Maga ™ (“contact combat”) is the official self-defense and fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces and hundreds of law enforcement agencies from across the world. Krav Maga has been taught across the world to men, women and children of all walks of life and is now being offered to Pittsburgh.

Krav Maga is perfect for the military and police. However, it is also perfect for your girlfriend, wife, mother, daughter, son, father and...YOU! With Krav Maga you do not need years of training or to become Bruce Lee in order to defend yourself. Simply put, Krav Maga is the simplest and most realistic self defense system ever developed!

Warning: Don't be fooled by imposters! Since our arrival many people and schools are claiming to teach Krav Maga or Krav Maga "like" techinques. We are Pittsburgh's only licensed Krav Maga Worldwide Training Center! We are the only facility offering certified Krav Maga Instructors!

Wright's Gym

Get Real…Keep the makeup, spandex, and attitudes at home! 

We are your "anti" La-Fitness! We are simple and functional. Our club offers a friendly neighborhood feel where you are a name not a number. Many health clubs give you the feeling that you have to prep before you come, already be in shape, and look a certain way. It is ridiculous! We want to help you improve! Funny thing...over the years we have had people from LA come to our Pittsburgh based gym and their reply...Keep being a Pittsburgh Gym!
