Krav Maga For Military

Krav Maga, originally developed in Israel, is the official system of hand-to-hand combat employed by the Israeli Defense Forces, the Israeli National and Military Police, as well as Israeli Special Operations and Security Units. Krav Maga offers an effective and aggressive style of fighting for the military. However, because of our experience with use of force, we have extensive knowledge of tactics using less lethal force. This type of training is critical with the current deployment of military and security personnel on law enforcement and peacekeeping missions.  Keenly aware of use-of-force issues, the Force Training Division has experience in training some of the top law enforcement, security and military units in the United States.  

Krav Maga is a unique self-defense program designed for use in both law enforcement and military special operations contexts. The Krav Maga system provides solutions to a multiplicity of armed and unarmed threats to law enforcement and military personnel. Krav Maga is a modern, reality based method of training. The Krav Maga defensive tactics training is characterized by a logical and progressive approach to learning that results in a highly effective, easy to learn, natural and practical method of defensive tactics for real life violent encounters.

Krav Maga emerged in an environment where extreme violence, mostly of a political nature, was common.  It has had ample opportunity to be tested and improved under real-life conditions, proving itself to be an ideal means of defending one’s self in the face of life-threatening danger.  No defensive tactics system in the world is more street and battle-tested than Krav Maga.

What Makes Krav Maga Different?

Krav Maga is not another defensive tactics system based on traditional martial arts approaches. It is a modern, reality-based method of training characterized by coherent and logical thinking that builds up easy, natural and practical techniques featuring simple movements of the human body.  Because the Krav Maga system is well integrated, common defensive principles apply to a variety of attack scenarios. Thus, the system can be learned in a relatively short period of instruction. Also, the techniques are easy to retain and can be performed under stress.
