KRAV MAGA (contact combat) is a noncompetitive self defense system developed in Israel that involves striking techniques, wrestling and grappling. Krav Maga is prevalently known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient, brutal counter-attacks. Krav Maga advocates a philosophy emphasizing threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression. Krav Maga is used by Israeli Defense Forces, and several closely related variations have been developed and adopted by law enforcement and intelligence organizations, Mossad and Shin Bet. Outside Israel, Krav Maga is allegedly used by various special police, military and intelligence forces, such as American CIA, FBI, US Marshals, USAF, DEA, Federal Air Marshals, various police departments (SWAT teams), French GIGN, Belgian Army, etc. There are several organizations teaching variations of Krav Maga internationally.


The name Krav Maga in Hebrew means "hand-to-hand combat". Krav meaning "battle" and Maga meaning "contact". Hence, Krav Maga is a generic name, somewhat like saying Martial Arts. A key principle of Krav Maga is finishing a fight as quickly as possible and therefore all attacks are aimed towards the most vulnerable parts of the body (e.g., face, neck, groin, knee, etc.). Because there are no sporting rules, individuals trained in Krav Maga are not limited to techniques that avoid severely injuring their opponents, but training and sparring drills provide maximum safety to the students by the use of protective equipment and the use of reasonable force. For example, kicks to the groin during sparring is commonplace, but groin protection must be worn and students should demonstrate due diligence with regards for their partners' safety. Students learn to defend against all variety of attacks before engaging in full-contact sparring. Students are taught to respond to attacks in the quickest and most efficient way; a common lesson taught is 'always use the nearest tool for the job'. This basically means use whichever limb is closest to your attacker at the time and whichever feels most natural. Men and women generally undergo the same drills. It has no sporting federation and there are no official uniforms such as a gi. Usual training attire consists of a t-shirt and loose fitting trousers. Krav Maga is also one of the few martial arts in which footwear is habitually worn due to it being 'reality based training'. Most organizations recognize progress through training with rank badges, different levels, and belts.


General principles include:

     Counter attacking as soon as possible (or attacking preemptively).

     Targeting attacks to the body's most vulnerable points such as the eyes, jaw, throat, groin, knee, etc.

     Neutralizing the opponent as quickly as possible by     responding with an unbroken stream of counter attacks and if necessary a take down/joint break.

     Maintaining awareness of surroundings while dealing with the threat in order to look for escape routes, further attackers, objects that could be used to defend or help attack and so on.


Basic training entails a warm up, learning the essential pressure points and how to approach and control an opponent utilizing the application of force. Students learn how to execute strikes and kicks including punches, hammer fists, elbows, various kicks and knees. Students learn defenses against takedowns, chokes, bear hugs, arm bars and various other possible attacks. Training also includes learning to defend against various weapons including knives, bats, guns etc. Pressure drills are also common so that students can experience being attacked by multiple attackers. Other pressure tests include students closing their eyes and then having to react to a variety of potential threats. Fitness and endurance training is also incorporated into regular classes.


Training can also cover situational awareness to develop an understanding of one's surroundings and potentially threatening circumstances before an attack occurs. It may also cover ways to deal with potentially violent situations, and physical and verbal methods to avoid violence whenever possible.


All krav Maga techniques are preformed according to main Krav Maga principles:

         Avoidance, prevention, escape and evasion.

         Handling throws and falls to all directions and angles. 

        Attacks and counterattacks, performed to all targets, distances and directions and in all rhythms. Executed from all positions and postures. Use of all sorts of common objects for defensive purposes. 


         Defending all unarmed attacks: punches, strikes and kicks. Releases from all sorts of grabs and holds. 

         Defending all armed attacks and threats: knives, sharp objects, sticks and other blunt objects; of all kind of firearms. 

         Dealing with attacks coming from all possible directions and places; Whether performed by a single or multiple attackers; at all possible locations: confined or open areas; On all types of grounds; When free or in limited space of movement; While standing, on the move, sitting down, laying down on the back, side or facing down etc.

         Physical and mental control and disarm. 

         Krav Maga techniques prepare the trainees to function in all circumstances and fighting environments, according to their needs, job descriptions and probable risks.


Keeping those in mind, there are several ways to divide the Krav Maga system into groups.
