Krav Maga

The name Krava Maga stems from the Hebrew “contact combat”. It is the world’s most battle-tested, reality-based combat/self-defence system used by military and law enforcement agencies worldwide. Krav Maga was founded by Imi Lichtenfeld and has its origins in fighting skills he developed to help the Jewish poplulation defend themselves from fascist attacks in Bratislava in the 1930s. Imi went on to teach close-quarters combat training in the IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) and later to develop Krav Maga for civilians.

Krav Maga is brutaly effective as a self-defence system, having been tested in the most severe environments possible. It is designed to be learned quickly, in days or weeks not years, by men and women of all ages and physical capabilities. It emphasises simplicity, instinct, reuse of core techniques in many situations, use of improvised weapons and the ability to perform under extreme pressure under the effects of adrenaline rush. Krav maga differs from martial arts in that there are no rules. Think of all the banned, dangerous techniques in martial arts and they will be present in Krav Maga. In a dangerous situation, your response needs to be proportionate but must be effective and must nullify the danger. Simultanous attack and defence is a key tenet of Krav Maga.

Burn Calories with Krav Maga

If you weigh roughly 9 stones you burn 590 calories and hour with Krav Maga and this rises to 931 calories an hour if you weigh roughly 14.5 stones. Not only that, but you will probably have more fun, meet interesting people and learn useful self-defence skills at the same time. That is a higher rate of calorie burn than with average cycling, rowing, skipping, tennis or weight lifting.
