Krav Maga is an Israeli system of self-defense and tactics. It is not a sport and gears its students to face situations with multiple, armed attackers. We build on basic skill sets and train under "controlled stress" environments to simulate real life situations. Krav Maga was developed for special forces, but is the best self-defense system for civilians, women, and children.
