Krav Maga, the official fighting system adopted by the Israeli Defense Forces, is based on handling real world threats with proven techniques that can be learned quickly by anyone at any skill level. Krav Maga is also a full-body workout that will push you to your limits and beyond. Krav Maga creator Imi Lichtenfield designed the system to be absorbed quickly by people in harm’s way and in need of good street self-defense without being held back by the rules of sport fighting. In addition to teaching violence, Krav Maga also focuses on de-escalation and avoiding the fight before it happens. Our goal is to be at peace with everyone around us, but to be ready to use violence if required to defend ourselves or our loved ones.
