Violence could happen

Why Krav?

Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat training system of the Israeli military.

As Israeli soldiers and civilians alike may deal with potentially violent situations daily, they require a self-protection system that is instinctive, easily learned and highly efficient. Unlike a traditional martial art or combat sport where practitioners spend years honing their skills, Krav Maga is designed to quickly provide people with basic competency, often in only weeks or months.

Krav Maga’s philosophy is never to do more than necessary to overcome a threat—but to react with speed, economy of motion, and the reasonable level of force needed to effectively neutralize a violent encounter.

Imi Lichtenfeld (founder of Krav Maga) designed the system (an amalgamation of empty hand and weapon defense skills taken from Western boxing, karate, judo, and aikido) to benefit people of all shapes, sizes, and physical abilities. Krav Maga relies on the same basic principles from simple defenses to highly advanced techniques.

Krav Maga is known for its simplicity, instinctive nature, quick learning curve, utility, use of weapons of opportunity, and flexibility. Which is why we believe it ideal for self-protection. We assume that all attackers are bigger, stronger, faster, and younger than our students. So, the system is designed to help ordinary people successfully overcome that challenge.
