For all those who are less acquainted with this self defence system, here’s a brief note on what this is all about:
What is Krav Maga?
Krav maga is a self defence system that was first devised by the Israeli Military back in its forming days during the world war II. It was initially created for the Israeli special forces after the IDF (Israeli Defence Force) was formed but down the line, due to it’s logical and flexible combative approach towards self defence and self protection, it gained wide popularity with the civilian crowd.
The name in Hebrew can be translated as “contact combat”. The root word krav (קרב) means “combat” and maga (מגע) means “contact”. The Krav Maga association was officially founded back in 1978, by Imi Lichtenfeld with the core combat principles taken from boxing, wrestling and judo. To this day, street smart and effective is what Krav maga stands to be as a definition.
Now, Krav maga is practised and trained worldwide and is considered one of the top three go to combative system, besides the GST (Gracie Survival Tactics) & the MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program), for most of the elite military, law enforcement, security and protection agencies.
