Defense in Depth offers Krav Maga

MORGANTOWN — Imagine walking down the street, and someone accosts you with a gun demanding your wallet and all of your money.
How would you respond in such a stressful, frightening situation?
Defense in Depth is now offering four classes per week in a unique style of self-defense, called Krav Maga, which can help address these types of situations.
On Saturday morning, Defense in Depth held a grand opening of its new Krav Maga studio, one of the only ones in West Virginia.
“This is new for Defense in Depth,” said Jeremy Harris, Defense in Depth’s certified Krav Maga instructor. “They do a lot of other cool defense styles here, but Krav Maga is a simple, effective system, and we just wanted to do a big grand opening to let the public know that we’re offering it here.”
As part of the grand opening festivities, a number of free Krav Maga classes were offered, in addition to free food, prizes and giveaways. The free classes included two 90-minute Krav Maga introductory classes, a weapons defense demonstration class and a women’s empowerment class.
“We believe it’s important because unfortunately the world just isn’t as safe as we’d like it to be,” Harris said. “Even here in Morgantown, it wasn’t that long ago that there was a shooting rampage at a gas station. These types of things happen. So the reason it’s important for people to train is so that you can be able to take care of yourself in any situation.”
