What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is a simple, aggressive, easy to learn self defense system designed around natural body movements. Created by Imi Lichtenfeld, Krav Maga became the exclusive system used by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and is now used by many Military and Law Enforcement Agencies all over the world! Including many right here in Oregon.
The essence of Krav Maga can be understood based on some of the following Key Principles:
* Techniques must address the immediate danger.
* Techniques must defend and counterattack simultaneously.
* One defense must work against a variety of attacks.
* The system should be integrated so that movements learned in one area of the system complement movements in another.
* Techniques must be accessible to the average person, not just athletes.
* Techniques must work from a position of disadvantage.
* Training must include the stress experienced in real attacks.
