Krav Maga Principles
Simplicity, Speed and Effectiveness.
In other words, unlike other martial arts, you don’t need to be athletic or super flexible to learn really effective self-defense skills. Training consists of recognizing potential threats quickly and to finish a fight as quickly as possible!
Krav Maga training covers situational awareness to develop an understanding of one’s surroundings, learning to understand the psychology of a street confrontation and identifying potential threats.
Regular training benefits your mind, body and spirit, and you will learn confidence, focus, and the ability to deal with extreme situations.
Krav Maga is a proven self-defense system that will make you mentally and physically tough and is available to everybody: Men, Women and Children.
Back In April, a Chinese food delivery man in the Bronx turned the tables on two armed muggers, stabbing one of the suspects with his own knife. He was making a delivery when he was confronted by the two men who held knives up to his stomach and throat. The delivery man grabbed one of the knives and stabbed a suspect, the other suspect ran for the hills. This scenario happens across the U.S., however, usually with the victim getting the short end of the stick
The ability to defend against knives and even guns is one of the skills taught in Krav Maga, a self-defense system developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) that consists of a wide combo of techniques sourced from wrestling, boxing, aikido, judo and realistic fight training. In other words, self-defense for the real world. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks. Because like the Chinese deliveryman, you never know when and where you may need to defend yourself. Imi Lichtenfeld, an Hungarian-Israeli martial artist, developed this system back in the 1930s. In the late 1940s, following his migration to Israel, he began to provide lessons on combat training to the military. It has since been refined for civilian, police and military applications.
