Krav Maga: New Self-Defense Course at APH

At Penguin Hall, students have the experience of pushing themselves past their perceived limitations. They learn that what they thought was a limit does not apply to them. This learning opportunity is part of Athletics at APH. The self-defense course, known as Krav Maga, gives our students the confidence and skills to ensure their own safety.
