Become A Human Weapon

Krav Maga is inherently different from  other forms of martial arts. Originally developed for the Israeli  military, the discipline is less about mystique and tradition and more  about eliminating your opponent as quickly and effectively as possible. A  skilled practitioner of Krav Maga is, in essence, a walking human  weapon.

At the same time, however, there is a  wisdom behind Krav Maga that is seen in all disciplines of the martial  arts. One of the first things a student learns is to avoid confrontation  whenever possible. It is only when it is impossible or unsafe that an  attack is mounted. These attacks aim to end the fight as quickly as  possible by targeting vulnerable parts of the body.

Krav Maga is a unique martial arts  discipline that is well-suited for both men and women. It is perfect for  those that are looking to improve their self-defense skills or want to get into better shape than they’ve ever  been before. It is also a great way to meet like-minded people
and become part of a unique community.

History of Krav Maga

Krav Maga was originally developed for use  by the Israeli military. It combines techniques from boxing, savate,  Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and grappling.  Training in Krav Maga focuses on application of knowledge in real-world  street fighting situations.

The first person to develop Krav Maga was  Imi Lichtenfeld. Trained as a boxer and a wrestler, Lichtenfeld  developed the new martial art to help defend the Jewish quarter from  fascist groups in Czechoslovakia during the late 1930s and early 1940s.  He started to give lessons in Krav Maga to the Israeli Defense Forces  after immigrating to Israel in the late 1940s. The development of Krav  Maga took off from here and has since been refined by the Mossad and  Shin Bet law enforcement, as well as intelligence organizations.

Principles of Krav Maga

The primary goal of Krav Maga is to  neutralize the threat as quickly and efficiently as possible. Anything  goes in Krav Maga. There is very little fighting etiquette to learn and  an emphasis is placed on attacking vulnerable soft tissues and pressure  points, such as the eyes, neck or throat, face, solar plexus, groin,  ribs, knee, foot, and fingers.

Maintaining an awareness of your  surroundings is also key. In a street setting, it is vital to know what  is happening all around you. For example, if you are arguing with  someone on the street, you don’t know the intentions of any third-party  observers gathered around you. They could very well be looking for an  opportunity to attack.

Another important principle of Krav Maga  is simultaneous defense and attack. Unlike many other martial arts,  defensive and offensive movements are combined into a single continuous  movement. When blocking an attack, you are also performing a  counterattack. This is also where the principle of Retzev, or continuous  motion, comes into play.

Krav Maga doesn’t shy away from the use of weapons.

Practitioners are taught how to incorporate firearms and knives into their practice.
They are also taught how to improvise and use surrounding objects such as keys, pens, belts, and chairs as weapons.

Defense training with real world application

Fighting environments can be very  unpredictable. In a real-life setting, you are probably not going to be  surrounded by a ring. It is also likely that you won’t be fighting a  single person.

Attacks can come from anywhere, when you  least expect them. You might be squaring off against an opponent head on  when a third-party attacks you from behind.

Krav Maga trains you for situations just  like these. It teaches you how to be aware of your surroundings and  protect yourself in real life. We'll show you how to take down an  attacker as quickly as possible by focusing on their pressure points and  vulnerable areas.

You'll learn how to get out of danger and make your way to safety quickly and efficiently.
