About Krav Maga
Krav Maga (“krahv magah”) is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. No katas. No rituals. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bear hugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and in the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.
Krav Maga is also the required training for scores of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and one of the most efficient self defense systems for real-life situations; emphasizing practical defenses against real attacks.

The system is characterized by a logical and coherent approach to self defense that enables one to achieve a relatively high level of proficiency within a short period of instruction. Instructors incorporate realistic re-enactments, teaching students how to operate under the stress of an actual attack. “It really doesn’t matter how strong you can kick-punch if you can’t perform when your life is in danger,” explains Darren Levine, US Chief Instructor and 6th Degree Black Belt. “Students learn to tap their aggressiveness in any situation. When your throat is grabbed, your instinct is to reach up and grab the attacker’s hands. Krav Maga teaches how to go with that instinct and turn it into a defense.”
