What separates Krav Maga from other Martial Arts or self-defense systems is that Krav Maga acknowledges the fact that there are no rules in a street fighting situation. There is nothing in place to keep an individual safe and no referee is present when grievous bodily harm presents itself. Krav Maga utilizes a variety of self defense techniques that can be taught to anyone, regardless of age, size, gender, fitness level or previous Martial Arts experience. With proper training, anyone can become proficient at Krav Maga in a short period of time. In simplest terms, Krav Maga is a street fighting method of self defense.
