The Umtimate Self Defense System

Krav Maga

Krav Maga is the most effective self defense system offered today. Krav Maga is easily learned and implemented quickly.This system is accessible to anyone interested in learning self defense techniques in aim to protect themselves and their surroundings

Why Krav Maga is the best self-defense system in the world:


The purpose of this article is to go through the factors that led Krav Maga to be the best self-defense system in the world. It is vital for us to know those factors in order to preserve it and pass it forward. In hindsight, four major elements stands behind this achievement:

First element: The evolutionary element

Every creature on earth, developed physical traits, which allowed him to survive in a constant dangerous changing environment. The ones that evolution gave them the right tools, Prevailed, and the ones that weren’t so lucky, (the mutation passed them) did not survive. Humans therefore, naturally carry the surviving genes, each of us born with a set of natural defensive, cognitive & reflexive traits, from the moment we emerge from our mothers' womb.

Examples for those genetic traits: If someone walks in the street and hears tires screeching, he will turn to see the danger and will raise his hands forward in a push motion, even if it's a five tons truck forging toward him, and he has no chance of stopping it.
