What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is an Israeli self-defense system based on fast, easy-to-learn responses to common, real-world attacks. It draws on techniques from other martial arts and combat sports such as Muay Thai kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Wrestling, and Boxing and combines them with an emphasis on home defense, sexual assault prevention, and surprise attacks.
Not exclusively for athletes and fighters, Krav Maga is meant for everyone of every size, age, and experience level to walk with strength and confidence out in the world.
