Krav Maga self defense training for civilians was developed by Imi Lichtenfeld with the average person in mind. After Imi retired from supervising hand to hand combat training to the Israel Defense Forces, he adapted the Krav Maga self defense and fighting system for the civilian population of the State of Israel.
From the moment Israel birthed as a nation, its entire population became instant warriors fighting for their survival as a nation and as a people. Today, Israelis are still surrounded by enemies that have vowed to wipe the State of Israel off the map.
In response to the need of common everyday Israelis to protect themselves from terrorists and violent street offenders, Imi Lichtenfeld
adapted Krav Maga combat techniques and tactics into a practical,
easy-to-learn, quick-to-master street fighting system that any man,
woman and child could learn with maximum efficiency in the shortest time
It is the simple nature of Krav Maga techniques and tactics that makes it the most effective reality-based hand-to-hand combat training system for everyone, regardless of their age, size, fitness level, shape, and gender.
Krav Maga self defense training can be learned by anyone no matter where they live. Whether you live in a small rural town or a major city, there are a different ways you can learn Krav Maga.
Official Krav training centers present the greatest opportunity to develop street level proficiency in Krav Maga. Nothing compares to the instruction, guidance and motivation you will receive from certified instructors.
The reality-based self defense training at Krav training centers includes situational drills imitating dangerous scenarios on the streets involving single or multiple assailants. This helps students develop awareness of their surroundings and develops an instinctive ability to react after the act of being attacked.
Krav Maga classes at a training center also
present opportunities for you to train with people of different sizes
which prepares you to react instinctively against aggressors on the
street that may be bigger, taller, rounder or shorter than yourself.
Krav Maga training centers exist all around the world. For people that can find a Krav training center where they live, self defense training with certified instructors and a group of practicing students offers the best way to become a proficiently lethal master of Krav Maga combat techniques and tactics in the shortest time possible.
