Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a real world martial arts system that was developed in Hungary and Israel by founder Imi Sde-Or, as a direct response to dealing with fascist anti-Semitic violence. Krav Maga is a practical and tactical system aimed at training how to neutralize threat and protect through self-defense, as well as how to acquire fighting skills when an offensive strategy is required.

In Hebrew, Krav Maga means ‘combat contact‘. Krav Maga is the ultimate combat training system in the world, offering the quickest and most efficient counter-attacks.

Easy to learn with logical progression; natural and intuitive to perform, practical to employ under stressful situations; and encouraging a tactical and technical approach to self-defense and combat. The key to Krav Maga is the teaching process, methodology, and training style.

Krav Maga Training Teaches:

  • How to prevent, avoid, escape and evade situations of conflict

  • Attacking and counter-attacking skills, using the hands, legs, feet, arms and head

  • How to use everyday objects for self-defense

  • Techniques to defend yourself against unarmed attacks such as kicks, strikes, throws, different grabs of body and clothing

I’ve been going to Cypress Martial Arts and Fitness for about a month now attending the Krav Maga classes. Robert is an… awesome instructor. He goes over and explains the moves as many times as needed, corrects incorrect form to make sure you are doing it right to avoid injury. I suffer from anxiety so these classes are helping me in more ways than just learning how to defend myself. My 14 year old son and my husband have started taking classes here too. We love it!
