What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is a self-defense system, originally from Israel. It means ‘contact combat’.
I’m personally convinced Krav Maga is the best self-defense system in the world, because:
- It’s easy to learn,
- It’s easy to execute
- It’s incredibly effective
- It focuses on much more than simple physical training.
But the best of it all…
It allows me (a young woman) to truly and honestly overcome men twice my size and weight.
It baffles me, but the sheer effectiveness of Krav Maga won me over. Here I try to show you why Krav Maga is so amazing.
