 History of Krav Maga

Krav Maga translated from Hebrew into English is Contact Combat, initially developed as an unarmed combat system by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) due to its no-nonsense approach. Krav Maga has since been adapted by Eyal Yanilov to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement officers and security personnel.

Krav Maga is globally recognized as the most comprehensive reality based self-defence system in the world today. Krav Maga is a practical realistic system that teaches how to avoid, prevent, deter or deal with all types of violent confrontations having been developed under realistic conditions in Israel by its founder Imi (Sde-or) Lichenfeld). Krav Maga continues to be developed by Imi's closest assistant and highest-level instructor Eyal Yanilov of Krav Maga Global.

There are no traditional or sporting elements in Krav Maga. All of its training methods are based on the adaptation of instinctive response through principal based learning. This results in skills that become practical in a short space of time - useful under stressful conditions. Krav Maga is suitable for all, as each person with the guidance of a certified instructor, can reach their own goals and fulfil their needs. An essential part of Krav Maga training is its structured teaching delivery of learning and training methodologies.
