Background to Krav Maga
Krav Maga was created by advanced martial arts exponent Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Army in 1948. Maccabi's Krav Maga instructors have been involved in KM since 1984. For more information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imi_Lichtenfeld and see our About Krav Maga page.
Imi Lichtenfeld (1910-1998) "That one may walk in peace"
Krav Maga is Hebrew for "Contact Combat" and is a style of self defence designed initially for the Israeli Army and later developed for civilian use. It's methods are straightforward and intended to be quick and easy to learn. There are no Katas (Forms) and all aspects of a class focus on defensive methods for street situations. The philosophy is simple. In the event of an attack students are trained to "Engage, Disengage and Escape" in the shortest possible time.
