Krav Maga translated from Hebrew into English, as ‘Contact Combat’ was initially developed as an unarmed combat system by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) due to its no-nonsense, simplistic and practical approach. Krav Maga has since been adapted to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement officers and security personnel. Krav Maga is widely recognised as the most comprehensive reality based self-defense system in the world today.
Krav Maga is a unique and logical system of self-defense, fighting skills and defensive tactics. There are no traditional or sporting elements in Krav Maga with all of its training methods being based on the adaptation of instinctive response through principal based learning, resulting in skills that become practical in a short space of time and useful under stressful conditions. Elevating the trainee’s capabilities on the physical, mental, technical and tactical levels, Krav Maga is suitable for all, as each person, with the guidance of a trained and certified instructor can reach their own goals and fulfil their needs.
