Krav maga was developed and refined during World War II and Israel’s War of Independence by Imi Lichtenfeld. Krav maga is Hebrew for “contact combat”. It was originally developed in the Israeli defence forces and various branches of the security services, and later adapted to civilian needs. It is based on utility, instinct, simplicity, and adaptability. It emerged from an environment where violence, mostly political, was unfortunately commonplace.
Because it was developed to teach a disparate group of soldiers of all shapes, sizes, and abilities, its techniques are simple and instinctive. They can be used effectively by men and women of all sizes, shapes, physical abilities, and ages. Even celebrities are getting on the krav bandwagon (Jennifer Lopez, Hillary Swank, Lucy Liu, John Mayer, Matt Damon, Anna Kournikova, Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher, and Charlize Theron ). Krav maga is also becoming popular as a conditioning and fitness regime (you can burn 900 kcal ).
All techniques are thoroughly tested in real-life situations and improved and refined accordingly. Techniques are constantly modified, added, and discarded as real-life encounters are analysed.
The system comprises simple, easy-to-learn, techniques based on natural body movements and logical defence principles. Practitioners can attain a high level of proficiency in a relatively short period of instruction.
