Krav Maga (Contact Combat) is one of the quickest growing self defence systems world wide. It was originally developed for the Israeli Defence and Security forces and has since gained interest with civilians, celebrities, military and law enforcement personnel around the world.
Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, Krav Maga is a modern day reality-based system that is designed to teach practical self defence in the shortest possible time (while giving you a good cardio workout). We will teach you to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter and defend against common chokes, bearhugs, headlocks, attacks on the ground and weapons such as gun, knives and sticks.
Krav Maga has since been adapted by Eyal Yanilov to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement officers and security personnel. Krav Maga is widely recognized as the most comprehensive reality based self-defense system in the world today.

HOW IS KRAV DIFFERENT
Most attacks do not occur in the comfort and regulated environment of a formal dojo or training hall. Krav Maga training is therefore predicated on the fact that attacks and life threatening situations can occur anywhere and in an instant.
Attacks happen when we least expect them, when we are most vulnerable, in areas congested with furniture and other objects, on uneven ground, in low light areas, in car parks and many other environments where we live, move through and work. Therefore, our training is structured to allow for these and other variables that occur during violent attacks.
We train to overcome and/or compensate for the effects of shock, deterioration of fine motor skills, tunnel vision and other factors such as time distortion etc. Our techniques and other skills have been developed and refined in real world situations and, have been used successfully by civilians, police and others trained in the system.
