Krav Maga, “קרב מגע”, is a practical self-defence system. It gives you the tools to survive violent assaults. You learn self-defence principles rather than memorizing techniques. This allows you to adapt to the dynamics of real-life situations. You don’t have to be strong, fit, or experienced.  Krav Maga is effective for people of any age, size or fitness level. Above all, Krav Maga is about your personal safety!

Origins and development?

“Necessity is the mother of invention”. Imi Lichtenfeld created Krav Maga in the 1930s to survive violence in Bratislava. He developed it when he moved to Israel in 1948 until his passing in 1998. Krav Maga continues to evolve to meet modern challenges.
