MORE THAN JUST A MARTIAL ART
During the 1930’s Imi Lichtenfeld needed a way to protect both himself and his community against fascists in a pre-independent Israel. So with survival in mind, he combined his wrestling and boxing experience with various street fighting techniques to create what is today known as Krav Maga.
The Krav Maga self defense system is a set of principles and instinctive movements based on real-world scenarios, which can be used by people of all ages and fitness levels to quickly subdue an opponent of any size—and now we’ve brought the expertise to the greater Rockville, Maryland area.
Skills include learning how to protect the body’s most vulnerable points (i.e. eyes, throat, face, groin, ribs, foot, etc) while using offensive maneuvers to swiftly neutralize dangerous opponents.
Today, his system is known as Krav Maga or “contact combat” in Hebrew. It has become one of the most popular self-defense combat systems around and is used by the FBI, NYPD, LAPD and Israeli Defense Force, and other militaries around the world.
