This is a combat self-defence system, not a sport! EvoFight’s Krav Maga is an evolution of the Krav Maga system that is more effective and more refined. The refinement is not a dilution for civilian use, as is the case with most Krav Maga training, but rather a refinement and evolution of the Krav Maga intended for combat and reality.
Krav Maga (Hebrew meaning: “contact combat”) is a self-defense system developed for the military in Israel that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, boxing, judo and wrestling along with realistic fight training.
Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks. It was derived from street-fighting skills developed by Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler as a means of defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in the mid-to-late 1930s.
In the late 1940s, following his immigration to Israel, he began to offer lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF, who went on to develop the system that became known as Krav Maga. It has since been refined for civilian, police and military applications.
We teach you realistic self-defence that we constantly refine and evolve.
We teach principles of combat so that you can adapt no matter what the situation.
We build you up to train aggressively and as realistically as possible and as necessary.
We encourage questions and scenario examples.
We do have a system and a structure to track your progress and “level”.
We don’t teach you to be Rambo or presume to teach you skills that can solve all problems.
We don’t teach 100’s of separate techniques which you’ll never remember or be able to apply.
We don’t believe in unnecessary or continuous aggressive training that will cause injuries or discourage you to learn.
We don’t answer questions with “that will never happen” or give irrelevant answers to relevant (all) questions.
We don’t belong to any organisation as we don’t believe an organisation with the correct curriculum exists.
We don’t hand out belts. You’re here to learn to survive, belts are not relevant to that goal.
We have and continue to evolve our Krav Maga system. Reality is diverse and brutal and we need to keep evolving to meet this challenge.
The secret to a good system (of anything) is that its learning is based in principles, not techniques. We’ve spent that last few years extracting the core principles of our system so it can be taught effectively and applied instinctively.
Our Krav Maga is system is taught through these 7 principles.
