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.
Pure Krav Maga London was established in 2010 to promote the legacy of Imrich, Eli and Boaz, in proving expert led self defence training. We are one of the few Krav Maga groups across the world, that have direct linage with the founder of Krav Maga.
Pure Krav Maga London has continued to expand, has homegrown its instructors to match its ethos of quality over quantity, establishing classes and a large private client base across London.
All Pure Krav Maga London instructors are suitably qualified, insured, members of the British Combat Association and have years of experience in teaching and developing students in the use of Krav Maga across the globe.
The system was designed to create a close quarter fighter within a short period of time which will prevail, hand to hand, against an enemy with years of martial art or street fighting experience.
Krav Maga is built on the principles of human physiology, psychology and reaction time. Rather than repeatedly drilling in rigid engagement techniques, Krav Maga students learn to analyze a hostile environment, stop the opponents’ capabilities according to his posture, selecting the appropriate action, within split second before the engagement.
We pride ourselves on teaching Krav Maga techniques that work in real life situations and not teaching things that looks good, but does not work.
We teach to students working within the protection fields, with direct front line experience and those who just want to learn for self-development. We are one of a few groups within the UK that facilitate students access to live fire and small arms use at a private range within the UK. For more information click here…
We use only the original and true form of KRAV MAGA as developed by IMI LICHTENFELD and taught at the WINGATE INSTITUTE Netanya, Israel.
