How is Krav Maga different from other martial arts?

Krav Maga was designed and based upon the world’s best martial arts systems, including: Muay Thai, JiuJitsu, Taekwondo, Western Boxing, Russian Sambo, etc.; however, this is where any similarity ends.  Because it is not a sport, many of our military’s lethal combat techniques have also been incorporated, proving that one can achieve competence based upon his or her simple desire to fight back, as anyone is vulnerable to certain types of strikes, chokes and disarms, no matter how menacing!


Krav Maga is not dogmatic, like most martial arts systems, and evolves nearly every single day.  With Israel being in a constant state of terrorist alert, its Krav Maga instructors and students are always searching for the very best ways to “get it done”, having daily, first-hand experience with what works, and what does not.
