What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is a combat system born in the middle of the last century to train the Army of the State of Israel. It is based on a scientific and realistic approach to combat according to which, in a dangerous situation, the primary objectives are the protection of yourself and your companions. In other words, the neutralization of the obstacle must happen in the shortest time and with the minimum physical effort possible. To achieve this goal it’s essential to hit sensitive points of the aggressor’s body, classified according to the extent of the damage caused.
Krav Maga and self defense
Krav Maga was developed in the military context and for years has been exclusively used by soldiers and special forces. Over the years it has been gradually used by law enforcement and security personnel, establishing itself as a ideal for self-defense for civilians. Above all, the Krav Maga learning curve is very low compared to traditional martial arts. As a result, its teachings are directed to all audiences, including women and older people, through the use of techniques designed to make the most of the physical and psychological possibilities of the students.
As part of a complete self-defense system is essential:
Knowing how to recognize and avoid risky situations for your safety
Learning to manage physical and psychological stress in an emergency.
Assessing the attitudes of the aggressor in a conflict.
Having adequate physical preparation.
Knowing and performing the techniques with speed, accuracy and efficiency.
Knowing how to use your body and everyday objects as weapons.
Knowing the sensitive parts of the body and the severity of damage you can cause.
Knowing the current laws regarding self-defense.
Knowing that the defense must always be proportionate to the offense!
