SKMA Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art in that, it gets someone that has no experience in self-defense, able to defend themselves effectively and efficiently in the shortest time possible. Our program operates on the premise that there are no limiting rules of engagement when it comes to protecting yourself and your loved ones.
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga (Hebrew for contact combat) was developed in the 1940’s by Imi Lichtenfeld and is used as a military self-defense for the Israeli military defense forces, police and now even civilians looking to be able to effectively and efficiently defend themselves in a myriad of self-defense situations.
Krav Maga is based on principles rather than specific techniques and is a cohesive system, which means the principles taught will be applicable in more than one self-defense situation. This makes the system easier and faster to learn. This carefully researched, assembled and battle-tested system allows for congruence throughout all skill levels.
What is the Purpose?
The main objective is simple: get students regardless of age, gender, physical size or athletic ability to a level of self-defense proficiency as quickly as possible! Training in Krav Maga allows for the person with a demanding lifestyle and the lack of time to devote years of training the ability to feel confident in in defending themselves against common attacks.
Utilize the Body’s
Our students learn to defend themselves against a variety of aggressive attacks like, punches, chokes, headlocks, bear hugs, grabs, ground attacks as well as defense against multiple attackers whether armed or unarmed. The techniques learned are based on instinctive movements and utilize gross motor skills.
Our program challenges students both physically and mentally, which strengthens the spirit, the body and develops one’s ability to cope with violent confrontations under duress.
