Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is a mixed martial arts style that is designed to be practical and effective for self-defense in real-world situations. It was developed in the 1940s by Imi Lichtenfeld, a Hungarian-Israeli martial artist, who combined techniques from boxing, jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and wrestling to create a system that would be easy to learn and use, regardless of size, strength, or experience level.
Krav Maga is known for its quick counter-attacks, explosive offensive techniques, and focus on real-world scenarios. It is not about winning a competition or looking good. It is about surviving a real-world attack.
