What is Krav Maga?

The words ‘Krav Maga’ means ‘Contact Combat’ in Hebrew. It is a complete, practical and modern reality based self defense, fighting and tactical system originally developed in the Israeli Defense Forces by Imi Lichtenfeld for use in the military. Imi subsequently developed it into a form of self defense for use by civilians, kids, security and law enforcement professionals. It is the world’s most complete and effective reality based self defense system.

One of the tenets of authentic Krav Maga is that the system is based on natural instincts and responses to, for instance, an attack. The techniques can therefore be learned quickly by anyone and easily retained for use when it really counts. This is one of the reasons that Krav Maga is so practical.
