About Israeli Krav Maga
Battle-tested and street-proven
Israeli krav maga (contact combat) is the Israel Defense Forces official
self-defense and close-quarters-combat system. The Israeli military and, law enforcement and
security institutions needed a close-quarter-combat training regimen based on utility, instinct,
simplicity, and adaptability. Imi Lichtenfelds krav maga system has provided a solution that
has reached global prominence.
Krav maga is based on our most
primitive and natural instincts. In developing the self-defense system, survival in any situation
was foremost in Imi's mind. Accordingly, krav maga relies on a person's natural instincts and
reflexes for self-defense. Awareness and mental conditioning are integral to krav maga
Krav maga's philosophy is never to do
more than necessary, but to react with speed, economy of motion, and the appropriate measure of
force. If a situation is dire, the defender must do whatever is necessary to overcome the threat.
This may include multiple strikes to the groin, throat, and kidneys, a finger planted into an eye,
shouting into an attacker's ear, a head butt, breaking an attackers elbow using an armbar
variation, severing an attackers Achilles tendon using an ankle lock, a bite to the neck, or
choking an assailant into unconsciousness.
Speed is paramount and one is taught
to strike instinctively at the human body's vulnerable parts. Krav maga is dynamic and constantly
evolves as situations require.
The Israeli krav maga system is one of
the most effective, practical, and holistic fighting systems in the world. Krav maga will build
your body, mind, and soul. Imi designed krav maga to benefit people of all shapes, sizes, and
physical abilities regardless of age. You may be your first and last line of defense in an
increasingly violent world. You must be prepared to do whatever it takes to survive. Most
important, there are no rules on the street.
