Krav Maga translated from Hebrew into English, as 'Contact Combat' was initially developed as an unarmed combat system by the founder of Krav Maga Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) due to its reality based approach to dealing with violent attacks. Krav Maga since has been adapted to meet the needs of civilians, law enforcement, military, and security personnel. Krav Maga is widely recognized as the most comprehensive reality based self-defense system in the world today.
Self-Defense and Fighting Aspects of Krav Maga.
Krav Maga is a fully comprehensive fighting system. What this means is that Krav Maga incorporates all aspects of fighting. Krav Maga students have to learn how to defend, and fight from the standing position, transitions, and on the ground. Krav Maga also includes aspects beyond "one vs one" realm this would include dealing with mutiple attackers, and weapons.
AOS Krav Maga (Know the difference)
AoS Krav Maga is a modern up to date version of Krav Maga. We take the best aspect of Krav Maga and directly integrate it with our striking and grappling programs. One big difference at AoS Krav Maga is we directly work with Erik Paulson a legendary martial artist that has developed high level striking (STX) kick boxing and submission grappling (CSW) programs that have been used by UFC fighters, military units, law enforcement, and civilians alike. This is a major aspect that has elevated AOS Krav Maga students to a much higher level than with traditional Krav Maga. Lastly, we also work direcly with Alan Predolin who many consider one of the highest level Krav Maga instructor in the world.
