KRAV MAGA

The Israeli Self-Defense

Krav Maga is the only art recognized worldwide as an art of self-defense, not as a martial art.  Its purpose is to teach anyone, regardless of age, gender or physical training, to defend themselves.

We bring answers to any kind of aggression, both armed or disarmed ; standing, sitting or lying down; from the front, behind or from the sides; against 1, 2 or more offenders. After all, when we are dealing with our life, everything can happen, and the impossible does not exist. For this reason, there are no rules, judges or competitions in Krav Maga. Our medal is our physical and mental integrity, and our competition is internal, always seeking the best of ourselves.

The technique

Krav Maga's techniques are simple, fast and objective. They are based on the natural movements of the human body, improving the reactions we have naturally. Thus, in the moment of truth, when we need to react under tension and fear, it becomes easier to perform the techniques, since it would be something very close to the reaction that we would do spontaneously.

The movements are always short, because long movements are slower and easier to perceive. In addition, we train to reach the sensitive and vital points of the aggressor`s body, such as eyes, nose, throat, genital region, etc. In this way, we eliminate the need to use physical strength and we can match the strong, the weak, the big, and the small.

The technique is based on physics, mathematics and human anatomy. We use the force of the explosion and the weight transfer in order to increase the power of our blows. We hit the target with small areas of our body for greater penetration ability. We reach points of the human body with high concentration of nerves. Levers, locks, deviations. Everything is scientifically proven and explained in each lesson.

The classes

Everything starts with a warm-up, preparing the body for what comes ahead. Then the instructor teaches the technique, explaining its details and the science behind the movements. So it's the student's turn to train. And this is done through simulations of real life situations, so that attacks are simulated and the student will train a defense against it.

In each lesson, the instructor teaches a new technique, and gradually the student learns to defend himself against many kinds of assaults he may have to face, such as strangulation, grasping, punching, kicking, knife-throwing or other objects, and even threats with firearms.

Self confidence

Krav Maga training, in addition to teaching techniques, develops the student`s self-confidence and courage. And that goes far beyond from the reaction on the street. It is true that, little by little, the fear that many carry of walking in the streets is lost.

Moreover, this fear is cast aside in every aspect of life, whether it is fear of the schoolmate, fear of of the boss or fear of a stranger. And that's one of the biggest benefits of Krav Maga: trusting and believing more in yourself and in your own ability.

Graduation

In the process of learning Krav Maga, we use a system of color gradations of belts and in each graduation we find different exercises, with progressive degrees of difficulty.

Já os cursos para o ramo de segurança, não obedecem a este sistema e segue uma divisão por módulos, específicos para cada tipo de unidade e necessidade.
