In the history of Elite Martial Arts (EMA), the school has had a long running history of bringing industry experts to compliment the daily instruction provided by our school’s staff. One of the most familiar experts, who routinely attends our school, is none other than Edward Wood, Head Instructor for the Krav Maga Association of Canada (KMC).Ed has a long resume in the field that extends to the very beginning of Krav Maga training in the province of Ontario. Ed is responsible for the training and certification of all the current instructors who are teaching within KMC today.
On the night of October 4, 2015, Ed was an honored guest at our Toronto martial arts and Krav Maga school to conduct a seminar on Krav Maga Basics and Fundamentals. It should be noted that not only were our Beginner students in attendance on this night, but also our Advance students attended this seminar to get back to the basics. Regardless of your current skills and level in your Krav Maga training, getting back to the basics and rediscovering what makes a good Krav Maga practitioner, is what builds a solid foundation and strong base for your skill set.
Ed’s seminar covered a wide variety of techniques and skills, such as proper fighting stances, reading body language, verbal cues of a potential attacker, and confrontational de-escalation. All the items covered in the seminar were broken down in fine detail and executed with proficiency by our students. This can be attributed to both the expert instruction that Ed provided our students, as well as their dedication to learn and perform the techniques.
The 90 minute seminar could have easily gone one for an unlimited amount of time, as there is always more to cover, class materials to break down, and techniques to analyze. Ed will continue to serve our school, EMA Toronto as an expert level guest instructor and senior advisor. In addition to his work and dedication extended to EMA Toronto and Krav Maga Canada, Ed is currently serving as Head Instructor of our Mississauga Krav Maga training centre, Elite Martial Arts Mississauga.
All of our students are encouraged to take advantage of the excellent training opportunities provided at our schools. We offer a top quality Krav Maga program with excellent supplementary Martial Arts programs at both our Toronto and Mississauga locations. Membership at our schools include access to both EMA locations, as well as Ed’s original Krav Maga training centre and the KMC National Head Quarters: Wood’s Premier Martial Arts in Ancaster, Ontario. Ed will surely be back at our school in the near future to lend support and top level instruction to our students.
