Self Defence Mastery

We teach close quarter hand-to-hand combat.

Krav Maga Origin


Krav Maga means 'Hand to Hand' Combat in Hebrew, is a constantly evolving training system first developed in 1948, when the State of Israel was founded and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) was formed, Imrich Lichtenfeld became its first Chief Instructor for Physical Fitness and Krav Maga at the IDF School of Combat Fitness, second, was Eli Avikzar, and third was Boaz Aviram in the 1980 when Imrich left the IDF. 

The Krav Maga system was designed to create a close quarter fighter within a short period of time building on the principles of human physiology, psychology and reaction time.
