Krav Maga translated from Hebrew into English, as ‘Contact Combat’ was initially developed as an unarmed combat system by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) due to its no-nonsense approach, simplistic and practical approach.
Krav Maga has since been adapted to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement officers and security personnel. Krav Maga is widely recognised as the most comprehensive reality based self-defence system in the world today.
Krav Maga is a practical and realistic system that is built on the natural reaction of the human body in a conflict situation, and teaches how to avoid, prevent, deter or deal with all types of violent confrontations.
Krav Maga is composed of three pillars, self-defence; fighting skills and defensive tactics including protecting other people.
