What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is a simple, effective self defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. It’s the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces, and has been taught to hundreds of law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians in the United States.
Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. It was developed in a hostile environment in which combatants could not devote many hours to hand-to-hand combat training. Therefore, the Krav Maga system was created to bring students to a high level of proficiency in a relatively short period of time. There are no forms (katas), rules, or set combinations as reactions to attacks as in MMA and traditional styles. Instead, Krav Maga training focuses on teaching simple self protection techniques which are specifically catered to reality based attack situations.
The art of Krav Maga is not MMA or a traditional martial art, rather much more of a survival system dealing with personal safety issues. It is considered to be a modern, highly refined, street fighting system, designed to be used against armed and unarmed attackers. Krav Maga teaches students to instinctively respond to a wide variety of aggressive acts which include punches, kicks, chokes, bear hugs, headlocks, grabs, as well as defenses against multiple attackers and assailants armed with a firearm, edged weapon, or blunt object. Since many attacks end up on the ground, or other awkward positions, upper-level classes include practice and response to many real-world situations under a variety of conditions.
Krav Maga training stresses the ability to react when surprised. Techniques and training methods emphasize the ability to function from a poor state of readiness, and to move from a passive to aggressive state immediately in order to fight back and survive. Training methods teach students to react effectively under stress and to move efficiently from a position of disadvantage to a position of advantage.
In addition to self-defense, Krav Maga Renton teaches hand-to-hand combat. This is a more advanced and sophisticated phase, and shows how to neutralize an opponent quickly and effectively. It embodies elements related to the actual performance of the fight including tactics, feints, powerful combination of different attacks, the psychological dimensions of the fight, and learning how to use the environment to your advantage.
Krav Maga includes specialized training methods to not only challenge students physically, but to also instill a special mental discipline meant to strengthen the spirit and to develop the ability to deal with violent confrontations under intense stress. Advanced classes and seminars will address a wide range of topics that are from today’s crime headlines, and to show you how professionals are taught to respond to such situations.
Too often those interested in self-defense training are forced to choose between programs like Karate or Taekwondo that never quite fit their needs. Some want self-defense training while others need an alternative to endless hours at a boring gym. Unfortunately most self-defense and martial arts schools are not capable of meeting the needs of a broad range of clients, and because of that training options are limited – UNTIL NOW!
