What is Krav Maga

Hebrew for Contact Combat, Krav Maga is a tactical self-defense system created in 1948 by IDF Chief Physical Fitness Instructor Imi Lichtenfeld.

Krav Maga was developed with intent for the practitioner to overcome all types of violence intuitively, naturally, and practically, especially under pressing conditions.

The practice is considered eclectic as the techniques derive from the fighting styles of: boxing, Muay Thai, jiu jitsu, wrestling, and grappling.
