Krav Maga Body Conditioning

The second pillar of Krav Maga is body conditioning.

​A physical confrontation is fast and explosive.  We need to be able to quickly delivery strong counter strikes and escape the area.  This requires anaerobic fitness - this is like a sprinter... the energy is already stored in the muscles ​depletes fast (10-20s).

However, a typical Krav Maga class lasts over an hour so we also need endurance... cardio-vascular fitness.  ​Naturally a class has peaks and troughs of activity over its duration so you will be hitting and enhancing the different energy systems:

  • Warm-up... get the heart-rate up, strengthen the muscles and prepare the body;
  • Pa​d drills... ​steadily working on exercises like strike pads to ​develop strength, endurance and cardio capacity;
  • Group drills...  high intensity scenarios and simulations of realistic self defence situations
