Martial Arts do - the long way of the fighting styles
Krav Maga


The blows of Krav Maga aim to use the force of the explosive movement in order to transfer the body weight to the opponent. Techniques targeting the vulnerable points of the body and maneuvers with simultaneous defenses and counter attacks are used.

The key principle of this fighting style is to finish a fight as quick as possible

The techniques defend against various types of agressions such as striking, kicking, grabbing, headlocking, choking and the use of bats, knives, guns and also in situations with more than one attacker.

In order to simplify fighting, only a small number of stances is included.

Krav Maga focuses mainly on efficient, low-risk kicks (although risky kicks are included).

Throws are not much covered because the goal is to stay off of the ground. However, groundfighting techniques are taught when there is no way to avoid such situation.
