Students learn to defend against all types of attacks and are trained to counter in the quickest and most efficient way.
The main goals in Krav Maga are:
- Counter attacking as soon as possible (or attacking pre-emptively).
- Targeting the body’s most vulnerable points such as: the eyes, neck and throat, face, solar plexus, groin, ribs, knee, foot, fingers, etc.
- Maximum effectiveness and efficiency in order to neutralize the opponent as quickly as possible.
- Developing an awareness of the surroundings while dealing with the threat, look for escape routes or other attackers or objects/weapons to defend or help attack.
In additional to developing situational awareness, training helps students understand the psychology of a street confrontation, and identify potential threats before an attack occurs.
The training focuses on real world situations and extremely swift and efficient counter-attacks. Krav Maga in Hebrew means contact combat: krav means combat, and maga means contact. Krav Maga is used by both regular and special Israeli defense forces.
