MMA is a sport, Krav Maga is a survival system. All sports have rules, and for good reason. On the street where anything goes, there are no rules, no ref to protect you, and you need to be prepared for anything. Here you can see how much of an effect the rules have on the sport. If you watch the early UFCs when there were less rules, the fights looked very different. Krav Maga is not better than MMA. MMA is better for the ring. Krav Maga is better for the street.

When your life is on the line, you don’t count on one strike to do the job. And if you get hit in the jewels, tough luck, Big John is not there to save you, keep fighting. * remember, the guys in the video are wearing groin guards Want to …

The prevalence of Krav Maga programs taught by frauds wearing BDUs has made it very difficult for the average person to find authentic training in this brutal art used by Israeli Defense Force personnel. Military veteran and former law enforcement officer Branimir Tudjan tears away the commercialization and hype to reveal the true Krav Maga: a self-defense program designed to save lives in dangerous situations. Focusing exclusively on street-oriented techniques, Tudjan not only demonstrates the physical aspects of defending yourself, but also teaches you how to be aware of, avoid, and de-escalate potential violent encounters. From the fundamentals of close-range striking to defenses against the most common street attacks, from groundfighting to full-contact fighting drills, this comprehensive combat system will give you the tactical advantage against any thug you’re likely to bump into on the street.

Krav Maga was born in the middle of the 40s by Imi Lichtenfeld (ZL) in Israel. The conception of Krav Maga reveals a path that enables anyone to exert their right to life, even with the violence that surrounds us. It is the only fighting technique with a worldwide recognition as an art of self defense and not as a martial art. There are no rules or competitions, because the techniques envision self-defense in real-life situations. With simple, fast and objective responses to violent daily life situations, it shows the common citizen how to defend himself, regardless of his physical conditioning, age or sex. With a military origin, its application in security forces has been incorporated by corporations all over the world because of its efficiency in combat.
