Karate Practice

Krav Maga & Self-Defense Classes 

 

First and third Wednesdays of each month, 6:00-7:00 PM

NAGLY Salem

Krav Maga is a system of self-defense developed by the Israeli military, and first taught to the public by Mr. Imi Lichtenfeld, the system founder. Krav Maga is not a combat sport but rather a simple and effective fighting system designed for self-protection and is intended to be practical and instinctive regardless of age, gender identity, or physical size. 

The program offered at NAGLY will teach students to avoid situations with preventative and de-escalation methods and to respond to common attack scenarios while developing their self-defense capacity. 

Our instructor, Mike Leonard, began practicing Krav Maga in 1994.  Mike holds the rank of sixth-degree black belt (M1) and is a second-generation student to the system founder. 

Open to Middle school-aged youth to age 23, including staff/volunteers

New Drama Club:

"PRISM "

 

Thursdays, 4:00-6:30 PM

Prism is a new, youth-led drama club at NAGLY.  The club will strive to give queer youth the opportunity to explore their own voices, bodies, emotions, and identities through theater arts.   By practicing character development, body movement, and text analysis, youth can develop a deeper sense of empathy, expand their sense of self, and improve body gender euphoria.
