“What is Krav Maga? I had watched some videos of Krav techniques on Youtube and told my wife. She surprised me and found a groupon and i tried it out. From watching the videos I only wanted to learn the techniques. After several classes it was addressed that the techniques are only one aspect. You need to have stamina and that is what the fitness portion of their program helps achieve. When a violent incident occurs you will need to have more than techniques to “Go Home Safe”. These three words have been ingrained in my mind from my training time at Krav Maga Great Lakes.
I continued to see the bad events unfold on the news in the world and in our surrounding areas so after the groupon ended i became a member of Krav Maga Great Lakes to continue learning Krav Maga to protect myself and my family. While training here the mindset of “Go Home Safe” is present in each Krav class. Krav Maga Great Lakes is a place that changes your mental attitude to focus on your situational awareness in our day to day activities and changes your mental toughness to not give up when confronted with stressful situations. The training provided by the exceptional staff is amazing. It has changed me for life and I am grateful to them all. If you are concerned for the safety of yourself or family and want the fundamentals and ability to “Go Home Safe”, without a doubt you need to sign up with Krav Maga Great Lakes- Today!! –Ryan G”
I walked into Krav Maga Great Lakes for the first time, part of me wanted to turn around and walk back to my car. I felt awkward and unsure of myself. But I stayed and fought through the uncomfortableness. That decision was one of the best I ever made. As we progressed from class to class I got stronger and my self confidence improved. Today, I went in for measurements to conclude the first challenge and begin the next. I have lost 5% of my body fat, reduced my BMI by 2.6 points and lost 17.25 inches. I have never loved exercise so much!! Dori Berean and Mike Berean, you are the absolute best. Thank you for providing an environment where everyone can succeed and become their very best.

“Taking Krav Maga as a teenager was an excellent decision for me. Not only did I become more confident that I could defend myself, but I became a much more confident person. Mike is a highly-skilled Krav Maga practitioner and an excellent instructor who will push you to your limits. At KMGL, you will become comfortable defending yourself in a wide variety of scenarios and using no-nonsense offensive techniques to fight off attackers. This isn’t karate, this is real.” Timothy Gielow
“I love how genuine the trainers are at Krav Maga Great Lakes! Got some great life advice today!” This place is absolutely amazing. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and so helpful. Same goes for the members I was welcomed in on my first day like I was already part of the Krav family! I really encourage anyone at ANY fitness level to at least try it! You can get fit and have a good time doing it! Erika Roberts
Krav Maga Great Lakes’ Dori, The Dominator, is solid and will give you a great, challenging full body workout. Her fitness/nutrition knowledge is evident… Just look at her!! Had my annual physical yesterday and my glucose and cholesterol numbers have not been this good in a long long time. My doctor called me a walking example of healthy living. Thank you!! Susan Alonzo
“Just started a few weeks ago amazing training. Good classes these people know what they are talking about.” Kevin Brown
“Myself (44y female) and 3 teens just joined. Into our 2nd week. Having tons of fun! Mike is walking a good line between pushing us and correcting, but not bullying or shaming. Other than making a 44yr old woman to do cartwheels and backward somersaults the first day 😛 we are loving it.” Renee Miller
“AWESOME instructors!! Very educated and extremely patience with those training. They are very approachable and understanding of your needs no matter what your size or physical needs. Many various classes are offered especially classes specific to women’s self defense seminars. The owner is very honest and will always guide you in the right direction based on your physical needs and goals. He will not try to push you into something your not ready for or don’t need! I LOVE THIS PLACE!!” Laura Mullen
“…what attracted me to Krav Maga was the fact that it focuses on real life scenarios, such as off-guard attacks, multiple attackers, and defense against weapons. I was more interested in learning to protect myself and my family in a crisis rather than taking martial arts for sports purposes. The Krav Maga Great Lakes family has been very welcoming, and the instructors are actually interested in making sure every student is performing the techniques correctly. The class has built my confidence …mentally as well in focusing my energy 100% in everything I do. I’m very pleased with my decision and learning the different moves are a fun way to exercise and build confidence.” Derrick R.
“I joined in March 2012. I am 50 years old. Because of the Krav Maga training system, I am in better shape now than I have ever been in my life. I feel more confident than ever that I could protect my family, myself, and others against multiple attackers. Oh yes one more thing, I can eat whatever I want because I know I will be burning off the carbs in class.” Jon K. Krav Maga Instructor
“On behalf of Hillel at Western Michigan University, I wanted to thank you for teaching the introduction to class. The student participants truly learned the basics of Krav Maga and enjoyed themselves. We hope that we are able to collaborate again in the future. Thank you again.” Caryn K.
