You’ve no doubt hear of Krav Maga before, but what exactly is this martial art style? How did it begin – how is it used today – and why is it perhaps the perfect style for self-defense? The answers lie in the origins of the style, itself.
A Historical Hybrid
“Krav Maga” is derived from the Hebrew language, and translates to “contact combat”. This dynamic, defensive fighting style was developed in Israel in the 1950’s, and was originally taught to the Israeli armed forces. Civilian instruction of Krav Maga began in the 1970’s, and has grown in popularity across the globe, ever since. Its straightforward and simplistic approach make it easy to learn and practical to employ; perfect for protection and the general population.
The three primary uses of Krav Maga are: military/law enforcement krav maga for arrest or detainment; civilian Krav Maga, known as self-defense Krav Maga taught globally as a very effective self-protection; and women’s krav maga designed specifically with women’s needs in mind.
Why Krav Maga?
Unlike many other systems, Krav Maga is specifically designed for self-defense and teaches students gun defenses, knife defenses, standing and ground survival, and striking defenses. Additionally, Krav Maga was created with the intention of avoiding conflict altogether. Fighting is a last resort. This makes Krav Maga, by its very definition, the perfect self-defense style for guarding one’s personal safety and the safety of their loved ones.
