Krav Maga was founded by Hungarian-Israeli martial artist IMI LICHTENFELD and preserved to the current day by his direct disciple EYAL YANILOV and Krav Maga Global (KMG), the
world's largest and most professional Krav Maga organisation. Find out more at the KMG website.
Krav Maga, "contact combat “or “close combat” in Hebrew, is a self-defence system initially developed in the 50s for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) and in later 70s also introduced to civilians.
IMI LICHTENFELD, the Founder of Krav Maga, was primarily a boxer and wrestler, who gained very valuable street-fighting experience while defending the Jewish quarter against Fascist
groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, during the 1930s. Like most martial arts, Krav Maga constantly evolves, thus giving its practitioners useful knowledge, skills, and solutions to modern type of threads and attacks.
Krav Maga is not intended to be a martial art and is not considered as such. In addition to incorporating techniques from many existing martial arts such as boxing, wrestling, karate, aikido, and judo, it also developed its own style. Krav Maga is a survival system rather than a codified martial art that's governed by rules and ceremonies.
