What is Krav Maga?
“Embraced by both the FBI and SWAT teams, Krav Maga is also an important part of high-end gyms around the world, where a faster and less competitive version offers training that can literally save your life.” – TIME Magazine
Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is an effective, modern and dynamic self-defense and fighting system. It is designed to be practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape or size. The techniques extend your natural instinct to develop skills quickly and effectively, while you are able to tackle attacks under any scenario. You learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones, while gaining more awareness and instinctive reflexes.
imi-takedown Krav Maga (‘contact battle’ in Hebrew) was developed in the 1950s and combined the most effective techniques and philosophy of various martial arts and training sessions. It was originally taught to the Israeli army and instruction for civilians began in the late ’70s. Several forms of Krav Maga continue today: civilian (self-defense), law enforcement (arrest or detention) and soldiers.
