Welcome!

Welcome to the DPA Krav Maga International Blog! The purpose of this blog is to keep students, parents or guardians informed in regards to class schedules, cancellations, belt promotions or other events. I also will be offering online training for anyone who is interested in training from home or do not have access to a martial arts facility. DPA Krav Maga is a self defense based martial art for all ages. Our system is not designed for combat sports tournaments or MMA, we train for the purpose of self defense, when the only viable option is to save yourself or loved ones from harm. DPA represents Dynamic Personal Achievement. Our motto is to develop respect for one's self and others in conjunction with a state of health and wellness; achieved through the martial arts.

Every belt promotion certificate includes the following creed which we expect all our students to follow.


"I pledge to use my martial art solely for the purpose of defense and never for aggression. I will practice environmental awareness to avoid conflict. Only when I have exhausted all other avenues of escape will I turn to my martial art. Honour your belt, associates, fellow belt holders and yourself. May your belts forever uphold the standards set forth by DPAKMI as we continue to strive for unity and proficiency in the art."

Class times are Mondays from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Fridays from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. These times are subject to change due to weather conditions.

Thank you for visiting our blog! If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a distance learning student of DPAKMI please feel free to contact me at deanalyward@gmail.com.
