Martial Arts - Self Defense
Moti Horenstein Mixed Martial Arts
The MHKA name …signifies the purpose of our academy: linking the world's most effective martial arts styles, linking the three critical elements of self-defense training, striking, weapons, and linking together the energy of the mind, body, and spirit which leads to overall personal development and well being.
as any wise architect will tell you, a building is only as good as its foundation. The grander the ultimate design, the deeper and more unshakable must be the foundation.
The MHKA teaching method focuses on practical techniques that work in real life. Rather than distract and astound you with an array of spectacular techniques that have little or no practical application, we prefer to concentrate on techniques that will help ensure our student's safety. To that end, we feel we have a moral and ethical obligation to offer a curriculum that has been rigidly tested, exhaustively researched and proven to be an intelligent and practical method with which to address the realities of an actual self-defense situation. Our style of self-defense, Krav Maga (Extreme Hisardut) is perfected in Israel and has stood the test of time.
Subsequently, there are many techniques that we chose not to teach here at MHKA. Why? Because, there are simple techniques, that are more effective. As we emphasize to our students during their first year of training: we could spend an hour showing you 15 or 20 flashy moves, which would leave you suitably impressed, but completely ignorant. You would walk away from each class bedazzled, but no more prepared to defend yourself than when you first arrived. Such a teaching approach does more to appease the ego of the instructors than it does to satisfy the concerns of the student.
At MHKA, we are in the business of addressing our student's concerns. Our staff are not salesmen they are teachers. Perhaps it is for this very reason, this commitment to impart useful knowledge to a student from their very first day of instruction, which explains why MHKA has been ranked “among the top martial arts academies in the nation” by Nicholas Cokinos, President of Educational Funding Company, and why our competitors are regarded as some of the best full contact fighters in the country and in the world.
