WHAT IS KRAV MAGA
Krav Maga also called the official Israeli self-defense system was created by Imi Lichtenfeld about forty years ago. Idea of Krav Maga is to teach anyone, regardless of age, physical prowess and experience how to defend themselves against a variety of attacks.
Because of Krav Maga's effectiveness, Krav Maga has gained acceptance in many of the world's best military and para-military organizations. This style has been accepted into the training programs of the Special Operations Battalion of the Military Police of Rio de Janeiro, the municipal guard of that same country, the G.I.G.N. of France, the FBI, the L.A. SWAT teams and the Beverly Hills Police Force.
As mentioned, Krav Maga ("Contact Combat" in Hebrew) is the official self-defense and fighting system used by the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.), Israeli Police and Security Services. It is also taught in institutions associated with the Israeli Ministry of Education, and since 1964, Krav Maga has been taught to civilians all over the world.
After development and refinement during years of conflict, Krav
Maga emphasizes easy learning techniques that have been battle-tested in real, life threatening confrontations. Krav Maga is different than most other martial arts systems (but not all) because there are no rules in Krav Maga. All things that are available is accepted and any attack and defense combination is welcomed to the art.
Most of the techniques themselves are combat-oriented versions of techniques borrowed from martial arts such as jujutsu, aikido, boxing, karate and judo as well as a number of lesser known but equally effective martial arts systems.
Krav Maga was developed in an environment where the Israeli military could not devote many hours hand to hand combat training for their personnel. Therefore, the Krav Maga system was created with great importance placed on bringing students to a high level of skill in a relatively (comparing some traditional arts) short period of time. There are no rules in the system. As it is said anything goes when you are fighting for your life.
Students of Krav Maga will learn kicking and punching techniques that emphasize quick speed attacks to vital areas such as the groin, eyes and throat. Low kicks to the knee may be also used. Defenses against armed multiple attackers are thought and students learn also basic weapons such as knife, short staff and bayonet rifle to include in their repertoire.
Defenses against different types of submission holds like full nelsons, chokes, bear hugs and lapel grabs will be thought so that students have at their knowledge which way to respond to an attack. While learning starts from basics, students rapidly progress to full speed sparring, where wear protective equipment is used to cushion blows and protect the vital areas.
Krav Maga is considered to be a modern, highly refined, street fighting system, designed to be utilized against muggings, street attacks, and sexual assaults. Emphasis is placed on using exactly what is appropriate and needed to the situation.
