Krav Maga Arrives With Gusto in East Hills
Trustee Clara Pomerantz brings the concept of Krav Maga, Israeli self- defense, to East Hills "It is fun, challenging, and a useful way to stay fit" she concluded. So with a public purpose in mind, she arranged for the instructors, scheduled the event, and then solicited residents to enroll. She invited children to participate in one class and adults to enroll in another time slot. As the reservations started pouring in, she realized she would even have to add another adult class.
