What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is a Defensive Tactics System which is typically used for self-defense training. It can be used by men, women or even children. This special martial art was developed for the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) in the 1940s. Today, thanks to self defence academies like Kravology, you can take Krav Maga classes in the UK too. Krav Maga is based on the best practices from judo, aikido, Muay Thai, savate, boxing, and wrestling. Another thing that makes this system special is the fact that the training is based on realistic scenarios including street fighting, something that we are witnessing every day in the streets of the UK.
