“So That One May Walk In Peace”
Krav Maga is built on simple processes, instinctive movements, and practical techniques to teach students the foundation of self-defense and self-protection skills. Dubbed a “mental” self-defense system, it is not about how much physical strength a student has, but more about their mindset and awareness.

Krav Maga (meaning Contact Combat in Hebrew) is a system of self-defense that was designed to be accessible, adaptable and simple to understand and learn.
Born 1910 – Bratislava, Czechoslovakia
Father (Samuel) was a renound Police officer who tought self-defense classes.
In the 1930’s Imi used what his father taught him to defend him self and his Jewish community from the growing Nazi party.
He and his training became so well regarded, that when Israel became a state in 1948, the government asked Imi to develop a comprehensive system of self-defense to teach to it’s army in very short order. This system would be what is known today as Krav Maga.
