The reason that most people put off starting to learn Krav Maga is because they are concerned about their fitness levels i.e., they aren’t fit enough. Rather than wait to get fit enough to train – and without taking a class you won’t be able to judge when that is – use your Krav Maga training as a way to get fit. Taking a Krav Maga class is more enjoyable than pounding the treadmill, and as you train you will develop new skills and learn how to effectively defend yourself – and others – from violent assaults. Use the button below to sign up for our introductory seminar, where you will be able to see that Krav Maga is an accessible physical activity.

Introduction To Krav Maga Seminar

Violence is contextual. In a combat sport such as MMA, a fight is both consensual and structured: both participants want to fight, both fighters know the place and time of the fight, and a referee will let them know when the fight will begin etc. In real-life confrontations, violence is unexpected and is something that one person(s) imposes on another. Other major differences is that competitors in an MMA contest know that they don’t have to be concerned with their assailant pulling a weapon or having others come to assist them. Because of this a different approach to real-world violence needs to be taken. This doesn’t mean that people lead less skills and abilities than MMA fighters to be able to strike/punch and grapple effectively but rather the nature of training has to take into account a confined environment, weapons and multiple assailants etc. One thing that Krav Maga and MMA have in common is that both approaches recognize that you must be competent to deal with pressure in all dimensions of a fight e.g., when standing and/or when on the ground etc. If you want to get a better understanding of the approach that Krav Maga takes for dealing with real-life violence, you can sign up for one of our introductory Krav Maga seminars by using the button below.

Whilst sparring doesn’t replicate real-life violence, it is a useful tool in developing fighting skills and abilities, and this is why we offer opportunities for students to spar. We have classes where there is a sparring option for those who feel they have developed the necessary skills to make this a worthwhile endeavor.

Krav Maga Yashir teaches two approaches to fighting when on the ground. These are: “ground survival” and ground-fighting. The first approach looks at how to survive when on the ground, in order to get back to standing whilst the other looks at potential/possible ways to finish the fight when on the ground. In many cases when you find yourself on the ground, you will be dealing with standing aggressor’s, and so the option and opportunity to finish a fight when on the ground will be somewhat limited. In such instances it is usually necessary to get back on your feet in order to deal with an attack. This is one of the ways in which real-life violence differs from a combat sport such as BJJ. Another major difference is that Krav Maga assumes that your environment may restrict what you can do e.g., you are fighting between seats, in the back of a car or in an environment with tables and chairs etc., such things can effect your ability to perform and apply techniques that may have been practiced in a more open setting.
