What should I bring to class?2020-10-22T18:49:12+00:00

For our Apex concealed carry class, bring a belt so you can support a holster. Some people prefer to wear an undershirt to be more comfortable when drawing from concealment. After a few weeks, you may want to bring MMA gloves, a mouthguard, athletic cup,  mat/wrestling shoes, and a pen and paper for note taking.

For our Krav Maga class, you will need to wear athletic clothing. Students will need shin guards, boxing gloves, and a mouthguard. An athletic cup, hand wraps, and mat/wrestling shoes are optional.

Don’t forget a water bottle!
