We are IKMF!
Krav Maga (meaning contact combat in Hebrew) is a reality based self defence system that was developed in Israel for use by the Israeli Defence Forces. The aim of Krav Maga is to end any confrontation as fast as possible, using techniques that emphasise simultaneous defence and offense, as well as aggression. Krav Maga is efficient; it uses brutal counter-attacks to end any confrontation quickly, with the aim of keeping you safe and escaping.
Krav Maga was initially developed by Imi Lichtenfeld. Imi honed his skills in street fighting defending Jewish neighbourhoods during anti-Semetic riots in the mid 1930's. When the state of Israel was founded in 1948, Imi became the chief instructor of Krav Maga for the IDF (Israeli Defence Forces). Since then, and to this day, Krav Maga continues to evolve, this is what makes it so good for self defence.
Krav Maga eventually branched out from its roots as a military system to include civilian training also. As it began to spread internationally, the IKMF (International Krav Maga Federation) was formed.
Today, Krav Maga is recognized worldwide as an efficient and practical self defence system, it is also used by many police and military units.
