Krav Maga: The Newest In MMA

Although Krav Maga boasts zero competition, no rules, and doesn’t even technically qualify as a sport, it still remains one of the most highly-regarded and respected martial arts today. A mix of some of the most effective styles (karate, muay thai, and boxing, just to name a few), Krav Maga utilizes its fluidity of regulations to an advantage, encouraging practitioners to use any and all methods available to win a battle. As the student gets more advanced, more complex methods of training will be introduced, from knife fights to hostage situations.

Similar in theory to other martial arts, Krav Maga has the student focus on first neutralizing the threat and then offering some offensive gain. Think of the clinch in Muay Thai as the neutralization and the knees as the offense when trying to visualize an appropriate comparison. Learning Krav Maga insists that students build up to its most lethal forms, first emphasizing “civilian self-defense” eventually followed by levels of understanding and a semi-traditional belt system.
