about krav maga
Known for its simple techniques and focus on efficiency, Krav Maga is a modern self-defence and combat system that was developed in the 1940s for the Israeli defence and security forces.
With a focus on real-world situations, Krav Maga employs fighting techniques that are simple to learn and lethal to execute. It can be learnt by any person regardless of age, shape or size.
Krav Maga encourages a peaceful resolution of confrontation wherever possible and teaches to use physical confrontation as a last resort. This trains you to pick and choose your fights and teaches you to walk away from possible confrontations.
Were a confrontation to end in physical combat, Krav Maga teaches techniques that are aimed at the opponent’s most vulnerable parts. So, whether it’s an uninvited hugger or a gun-wielding maniac, Krav Maga will teach you to defend from every spectrum of attack in the quickest and most efficient way possible.
Training in Krav Maga has host of benefits
To ensure that you’re not caught off guard during a confrontation, Krav Maga trains you to improve your situational awareness through tips, techniques and training.
If a walk through a dark and deserted street with potential bullies or molesters scares you, learning and training Krav Maga will help you strut down that very road by making you more confident about yourself and with ways in which you can defend yourself.
Krav Maga aims at utmost aggression that helps finish a fight. And for this reason, it encourages avoiding fights and street confrontations whenever possible. Through training, you will learn to pick and choose your fights; and when in a fight, to decimate it quickly and effectively.
As your situational awareness improves, you will be able to assess your environment for potential threats so that in case of an attack, you are well prepared. Through improved lateral thinking you will be able to use even the most mundane objects (car keys, water bottle, a pen) to your advantage and - as you will hear your trainer say several times - “finish the fight”.
Along with being an excellent stress release, learning Krav Maga will help improve your physical well-being over a period of time.Through structured warm up and constant practice of Krav Maga regularly, you will find that there is a marked increase in your strength, endurance and speed.
Basic principles of Krav Maga
Instant attack and defence
Learn to use physical aggression whenever required, especially during a fight.
Strike the opponent such that they are unable to attack you back.
Be proactive and be the first to attack. Or, if you are already attacked, counter-attack at the earliest.
Any and every object is a possible weapon.
Every kick and punch is to be targeted at the attackers most vulnerable points.
Be constantly aware of your environment so as to escape when the opportunity arises.
Practice and train such that your response under stress is instinctive.
Krav Maga is not a sport which is why there are no Krav Maga competitions. It is an effective form of self-defence that trains to absolutely incapacitate the attacker. There are no traditions, no uniforms and no rules. Krav Maga is about survival.
