What is Krav Maga?
We're often asked that question and in a nutshell it's a highly effective, highly efficient form of self-defence. Originally taught to the military in the newly founded state of Israel, it has since been modified so it may be taught to law enforcement, civilians and children. Krav Maga is based on the natural responses we have which is why it is simple to learn. There are four pillars to the system: technical, tactical, physical, mental. We need to work on all four to progress through our training, and classes reflect this. With the rise in interest in MMA and BJJ, Krav Maga is becoming more well known and is often described as a martial art. Though there are similarities, in Krav Maga there are no competitions or sporting elements - thus it is a pure self-defence system.
