During the 1930’s Imi Lichtenfeld, the founder of Krav Maga, was forced to protect both himself and his community against fascists. His experience in organized sport fighting (he was a member of the Slovakian National Wrestling team) plus his street fighting experience and training with his father all came together to help Imi develop a useful repertoire of self-defense techniques. This martial arts style continued to develop and eventually came to be known as Krav Maga. For more information on Krav Maga San Diego or Self Defense Classes, contact IKM San Diego at (858) 349-8795.

Krav Maga was brought to the US in 1981 and it quickly spiked an interest with the general public, but also with the FBI. It is currently the official system of self-defense used by the Israeli Defense Forces and is also taught to the Israeli police.

The unique characteristic of Krav Maga is that it is not a sports style of martial arts, but rather focuses on real life self-defense and hand to hand combat situations. In addition to this, Krav Maga also emphasizes stopping threats quickly and getting away safely. Defense against weapons is also an important part of the curriculum. To put it concisely, instructors and students are taught to defeat threats and avoid harm through a variety of means or by any means necessary. They are also taught to never give up.

Krav Maga is not known for uniforms or belts (Your Krav Maga Self-Defense Classes will not add any extra costs). In training, attempts to simulate real world situations outside of the training center are often utilized.

Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport and like Krav Maga, will teach you how to defend yourself against any adversary.

With proper Jiu-Jitsu technique you will be able to knock down your opponents to the ground and conquer them. This is very effective because it not only protects you from unnecessary blows but also allows you to control your opponent without causing severe injury to them.
