What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is an Israeli born protection system originally designed by Imi Lichtenfled for the Israeli Military.
It is now world renowned as being the world easiest to learn yet most effective self defence system.
Used by Military, Law Enforcement, VIP Protection, Civilians, Men, Women and Children around the world it has become known as the best self defence system available today!
Why are we different?
IKMF Krav Maga is NOT a sport.
With the rise in popularity of the UFC, combat sports such as , Boxing, MMA, BJJ and Muay Thai have all grown in popularity. However combat sports is NOT self defence. Although they look similar and have elements that will help with self defence combat sports only focus on a single opponent who is of equal size and weight with a strict set of rules being followed.
Combat sports start with a "ding" , this is not how self defence works.
IKMF Krav Maga is NOT a Martial Art.
Martial arts such as Karate, Taekwondo, Hapkido, Aikido all focus on "being a better person" their goal is a quest for perfection, and again, although they have some elements of self defence, taking the time to "perfect a punch" has no relevance in modern street violence.
