WHAT IS KRAV MAGA?
Krav Maga (Hebrew for "contact combat") is the official self-defense and fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It has been recognized as the most efficient self-defense system for real-life situations, emphasizing practical defenses against real attacks. Since 1964, Krav Maga has been taught to hundreds of U.S. law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians.
Krav Maga is a simple, effective self-defense system emphasizing instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. Because it is based on a person's natural reactions, it is easy to learn. You can become proficient in months rather than years. The Krav Maga system incorporates fitness, self-defense, and fighting like no other system.
Krav Maga's top-rated fitness classes, Fit To Fight, complements training by toning muscle, enhancing cardio fitness, and dramatically improving strength and stamina. Krav Maga's self-defense classes are a total-body workout that combines kicking, punching, street fighting, ground fighting, and defenses against weapons, getting students into prime physical shape.
The total-body workout benefits of the Krav Maga self-defense and the fitness system have been featured in publications such as Shape, Men's Fitness, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, US, and SELF, as well as television from CNN and Extra to The Today Show.
