Hi, we are the Patxot family,

We are very PROUD that families all over the New Castle area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives. The safe and fun environment truly encourages them to become champions in life.

We are a family oriented business with the goal of empowering, educating and helping families feel safe and healthy. Instructor David and Instructor Tanya have a desire to bridge families together by creating a peaceful and fun environment for self-development.

At Krav Defense & Fitness our heart is to remain family centered and to equip leaders to help grow city. We have connected with LCCAP, Domestic Violence, Big Brothers & Sisters and more to bring about a change in our area. With over 15 years in business, leadership and community building experience we have the ability to carry out the vision of uniting families and revealing how great New Castle really is.

Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident!

Instructors Tanya and David run an excellent, new martial arts school in New Castle. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

Mr. Caughey

Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.

We take joy helping our members of any age safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the New Castle area give our martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self-improvement 


Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”.

When you train in our New Castle martial arts program (which also serves Neshannock, New Wilmington, Wilmington, and Shenango), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” offer, and see the benefits of my New Castle martial arts program for yourself!
