Krav Maga is Hebrew for “contact combat”, or what Americans today call “combatives”. It is unarmed combat where a victim defends against attacks from guns, knives, sticks, and clubs, as well as punches and kicks.
Krav Maga is a user-friendly style that can be learned quickly and effectively. It is constantly being updated and revised to suit modern self-defense needs based upon lessons learned from war, urban crime, and in dealing with terrorism. The original creator of Krav Maga, Imi Lichtenfeld believed that when it comes to self-protection, you should use whatever works for you and throw out whatever doesn’t work. This simple and straightforward principles-based system has saved many lives worldwide, making it suitable for people of all ages and walks of life.
