Krav Maga is the Ultimate Self Defence system for anyone to deal with real life threats and attacks
We never know when we will need to protect ourselves or our loved ones but you need to be ready. Every day in New Zealand ordinary people are attacked:
The risk of not being able to defend your self is that if you ever get attacked it can be life changing. It’s not just the physical impact but the psychological damage also. Imagine also the pain of not being able to protect your friends or loved ones if they were depending on you?
There are many martial arts and combat sports that claim to be "good for self defence". However, upon closer examination this is not their primary objective and their training does not represent real situations.
Krav Maga is specifically designed to work in real situations for ordinary people. Imi Lechtenfeld, the founder had been a champion boxer and wrestler in Europe the 1930s. As a Jew he ended up in many street fights due to the rising anti-Semitic violence, and quickly found he had to modify his skills to survive.
Over many decades including as the Head Combat instructor of the reknown Israeli Defence Forces, he expanded and formalised Krav Maga as a comprehensive "system" that could be applied effectively by anybody, and not relying on strength or size.
