Krav Maga

Krav Maga

Krav Maga is not fighting in a ring, wearing uniforms, trying to get a 'belt', or win a trophy. It is a system designed to prepare you for real threats that we are encountering TODAY.

Krav Maga is based on instinctive movements so they are easy to learn and easily recalled under stressful situations.  Krav Maga is not dependent on size, strength, or special physical abilities, so our techniques can be used EFFECTIVELY by men and women of all ages.

No other system in the world is more street and combat proven that Krav Maga.

Krav Maga is a unique martial arts discipline that is well-suited for both men and women. Krav Maga is not dependent on size, strength or gender.  It is easy to learn, easy to retain and easy to execute under stress situations.  It is perfect for those that are looking to improve their self-defence 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. 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. 

Maintaining an awareness of your surroundings is also key. In a street setting, it is vital to know what is happening all around you and which barrier strategies would be effective. 

Another important principle of Krav Maga is simultaneous defence and attack. In Krav Maga you defend through attacking.

Krav Students 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.

Defence 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.

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