What Is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is a combat system used by the Israeli Military, that was designed in Israel, with a focus on self protection. This self-defence system features a wide range of techniques that are sourced from Muay Thai, boxing, savate, grappling and Judo among other martial arts.

As a fighting system, Krav Maga is known for a focus on brutal and effective counter-attack that can be applied in a real-world scenario. Krav Maga's creation is credited to Imi Lichtenfeld; as a Hungaria-Israeli martial artist, he provided combat training lessons to the early incarnations of the Israeli Defense Force in the late 1940s.
