Krav Maga is a non-competitive tactical self-defence system developed in Israel that consists of wide combination of techniques sourced from Boxing, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Kickboxing, Mix martial arts and other Martial arts, along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks.

It was derived from street-fighting skills developed by Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler, as a means of defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava in the mid-to late 1930s. In the late 1941s, following his immigration to Israel, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF, who went on to develop the system that became known as Krav Maga. It was refined for civilians, police and military applications.

Krav Maga is the most devastating fighting /self defence system in the world. In Krav Maga you’ll learn to defeat unarmed attackers, rapidly resolve ground fights, and deal with knives, guns and sticks. Additionally, you’ll learn how to debilitate your opponent quickly irrespective of his size, training background, or experience level. Most importantly the system can be learned quickly and applied under extreme stress.

This self defence system is based on simple and reflexive moves that work when you need them to.  As an ever evolving system the effectiveness of techniques is constantly tested and developed.
