What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is the world’s most battle-proven system of self-defense and fighting. The principles focus on finishing a fight as quickly as possible by swiftly addressing the danger and counterattacking at the most vulnerable parts of an antagonist’s body. Training is not limited to techniques that avoid severe injury. Students of every skill level are welcome, and no prior martial arts training is necessary.

Krav Maga is a military self-defense and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces (Shin Bet and Mossad). It contains a combination of elements from boxing, wrestling, Aikido, Judo, and Karate, along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga is also considered to be an early concept of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), since it includes both wrestling and striking elements.
