What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is currently the official self defence system for all branches of Israel’s defence agencies (military,police, mossad). While Krav Maga was originally developed in the military, in the early 80’s it was adapted for civilian use and spread beyond the borders of Israel. It is currently taught in over 30 countries to men, women and children. Krav Maga is also used by many police, military and government agencies throughout the world.
What makes Krav Maga one of the best self defence systems is its focus on realistic street-fighting situations such as knife attacks, multiple attacker scenarios and rape prevention. The self defence techniques developed in Krav Maga are based on simple movements of the human body, allowing students to learn quickly how to defend themselves against common street attacks and function effectively in stressful situations.
Krav Maga was developed out of experience in real combat situations. This combat system is constantly tested and improved to offer the most comprehensive and realistic training methods and self defence techniques.
