For those unfamiliar with Krav Maga, it’s a hybrid system of self defense. It was initially created by Imi Lichtenfeld to fight against fascist attacks in the 1930s. One of the strongest points of the martial art is that it’s of recent design, and actually focused on practicality within combat situations. Many martial arts have become a lot more about looking intimidating than actually being useful if someone attacks. Krav Maga, on the other hand, is a synthesis of several different means of self defense. The entire point of it is to quickly and effectively disable an opponent. 

Imi Lichtenfeld developed it to use against highly trained and very dangerous people. As such, it’s a system designed to let anyone else do the same. And one of the biggest advantages brought by IKM San Diego is that one can learn from Benjamin Halcewicz. He’s learned through a direct succession from Imi Lichtenfeld. In a practical sense, this means an undiluted transmission of Krav Maga. A way of learning that can be assured to stay tightly devoted to the initial purpose of being the strongest method of self defense. This is the big difference brought by Krav Maga at IKM San Diego. 

San-Diego-Krav-Maga-CaAnd nobody should feel intimidated about the idea of joining into that tradition. Krav Maga is about using one’s own strength against the enemy. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. Krav Maga can help improve on weak points, and allow one to fully harness their advantages. Whether male or female, anyone will learn to quickly and efficiently disable an opponent. Lessons in Krav Maga can take someone who feels unsafe in any situation and instill the techniques and training to ensure they’re fully safe anywhere. 

However, it isn’t all about training the body. Krav Maga is also about teaching a person to take control. The further into it people go, the further their sense of self will grow. It’s about teaching people to defend themselves. But it’s also about reclaiming the ability to feel like one’s entitled to his or her space. And that one can offer that same sense of security and safety to the people in his or her life. For more information on learning Krav Maga in San Diego, contact IKM San Diego at (858) 349-8795.
