After being robbed at gunpoint inside her Paris apartment in October, Kim Kardashian has reportedly decided to start taking Krav Maga classes. Kardashian is now taking personalized classes on the self-defense system at home, In Touch Weekly reported Thursday. The system, originally developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), includes techniques from boxing and incorporates realistic battle training into the education process.
"She's started taking classes three times a week at home," an alleged insider said Thursday. "She amped up her security, but it wasn't enough. She wants to take back control of her space and safety." Though her family has made some major changes in their security detail, Kardashian reportedly feels these classes are "a necessity" in order to ensure protection.
Following the October robbery, Kardashian and husband Kanye West reportedly parted ways with longtime bodyguard Pascal Duvier. "Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye," a source told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month. "It's a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances."
Though Kardashian hasn't spoken out about the attack, her sister Khloé spoke briefly about the family's recovery process during a recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I think it's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments," she told DeGeneres. "This is a really serious matter, and for Kim I think that’s really personal as to when that emotional, like, terror…you could move on from that."
