Krav Maga is a self-defense system. It is a modern, reality based method of training utilizing coherent and logical techniques that build up one another and utilizes the body’s natural and instinctive movements. Because the Krav Maga system is well integrated, common defensive principles apply to a variety of attack scenarios. Thus, the system can be learned in a relatively short period of time and can be performed under stress. This often includes being taken by surprise and learning to defend from an initial position of disadvantage and moving to a position of advantage to neutralize the threat. Krav Maga incorporates techniques from many styles including boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and others but it does not adhere to any classic or traditional school of thought. It has no sporting or tournament aspect.
