Krav Maga

The concept of Krav Maga is to take the most simple and practical techniques of other fighting styles like boxing, wrestling, and street fighting and make them quick and easy to teach.  The name itself can be translated from Hebrew to English as “contact combat.”  There are several organizations, including officers of the law, learning the aggressive defensive and offensive maneuvers that Krav Maga has to offer.
