As featured on BBC WM. Listen in to our lead instructor Gulshen Bano speaking about Krav Maga and Strike Back
Krav Maga meaning "contact combat" is an effective, modern and dynamic self defence and fighting system.
Originally developed by its founder Imi Lichtenfeld in the 1930's, it combines the most effective techniques from
boxing, wrestling and various other martial arts.
Krav Maga is a pure reality based self defence system. Unlike other martial arts and sports based systems it has no limitations and no rules.
Ultimately you train in Krav Maga so that in the worst case scenario you can save your own life or the lives of your loved ones.
Krav Maga teaches you how to use your own body as a weapon for self defence so you will use your hands, palms, elbows, knees and legs as tools to help you. It uses quick explosive movements. And its brutal. You strike at your attackers vulnerable points such as eyes and groin and then escape.
However Krav Maga also teaches you how to make good decisions under stress and how to actually even avoid bad scenarios to begin with. But if the situation arises that you are at a point of no return then rest assured the training that you have will give you the best chance so survive and go home safely.
Krav Maga is for everyone regardless of your age, shape, background or level of fitness. No experience is needed to begin training.
You will learn all the basics from stances, striking and kicking as well as all the essential defences against common attacks including chokes, headlocks and grabs.
After mastering the basics you can move on to training and dealing with more complicated situations such as weapon attacks and multiple attackers.
During your Krav Maga training you will build your confidence, increase your awareness of your sorroundings to become more 'switched on' and you will undoubtedly become fitter.
