WHAT IS KRAV MAGA?
Krav Maga is the Hebrew term for “Contact Combat”. It is a self-defense system developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient and brutal counter attacks. In Krav Maga, we not only focus on fighting techniques but we also focus a lot on situational awareness, and the psychology of both the attacker and the defender in a real world confrontation and we provide training methods that help students be able to react in a time of crisis or confrontation.
Krav Maga focuses on simultaneous defense and counter attacks when at all possible, as well as strikes to the most vulnerable points on the human body such as the throat, eyes, and groin. Another Key concept in Krav Maga is multiple attackers, training to fight against 2, 3 or more attackers at the same time.
In Krav Maga the training methods are quite different than in other martial arts. A good Krav Maga instructor will run stress drills to simulate real life attacks and stress the students out to have them do the techniques they have learned under worst case scenarios. This helps to build muscle memory and also trains the mind so the students no longer freeze or lock up durring a real attack.
There are multiple organizations that teach Krav Maga. KMA is a proud certified school associated with the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF). Matter of fact, KMA is the only IKMF School in the State of Arkansas. Some organizations have ties directly with Israel and some do not.
