What is Krav Maga
Krav Maga is a tactical mixed-martial art and combative self defense system thats put great emphasis on continuous motion, attacks to an assailant’s soft spots (pressure points), and simultaneous defense and attack. It was created so that no experience was needed, and any age, gender or physical ability could be successful at it.
Benefits of Krav Maga
The basic principle of this system is to inflict as much pain to your attacker with the goal of ending the attack as soon as possible. To do that, we use a cardio based training format to build strength, power, flexibility, stamina, endurance and more! You need to exercise! Why not learn how to defend yourself too!
About Matt Numrich
Matthew Numrich is a natural leader and teacher. He graduated from Concordia Univeristy Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. In the beginning, he began studying marital arts and training under Sifu Paul Vunak (under Guru Dan Inosanto) in Bruce Lees’s art of Jeet Kune Do. He founded his own studio in the Chicago suburbs shortly after being certified as one of only a handful of Full Instructors of JKD and the Filipino Martial Arts.
He also holds a Certified Executive Instructor positions under Progressive Fighting Systems, which is the “crème de la crème” in functional Jeet Kune Do. Mr. Numrich has also had the pleasure of training with some of the other elite JKD instructors such as Sifu Larry Hartsell (original student of Bruce Lee) and Thomas Cruse (past instructor of the Navy Seals).
Mr. Numrich has written a manuscript on JKD, in addition to several articles in US and international marital arts magazines. In 2001, he completed the first JKD on DVD instructional series, which is now distributed around the world. Mr. Numrich was used as a public media resource after the attacks of 9/11, in addition to running several out of state seminars. In late 2003, he was invited to teach instructors of the Federal Air Marshal’s Chicago O’Hare office .
He also completed the Jeet Kune Do Self-Defense Matrix, which is the perfect “at home” training companion and a great supplementary program for students at all levels. National publications and experts alike have hailed this program as “unique and ground breaking” as it not only focuses on the content of JKD (what is taught), but the method (how it is taught), resulting in an incredible training tool.

Principles come like second nature
Phx Krav Fit has given me the edge I need when comes to a confrontation. JKD principles are so easy to remember, they come like second nature. This is so important in my line of work.
